    • Morning, folks!*

    Not a bad start to the week as far as I’m concerned!

    Pay the fee or pay the ransom . . .

    either way, Keltner ends up paying through the nose. :)

    Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 21 “Dead To Rites” (175) 8/11/2014 Monday

    Dead Face’s men were late to catch on to the CCTV cut outs and just followed the Wanderer, however the Wanderer’s own long range RPV-R has been watching Dead Face’s own drone/robot. For now they let it follow them while the crew works to back hack its telemetry and communications net. (They aren’t trying to decode it, just finding out where it is communicating from will give them ammunition to go to the local PD for a heads up. Shen (Kato) saw that third RPV-R and backed to a safe distance. He is also going a bit faster to follow where the Luaxanian terrorists moved their equipment around the city electronically. He has noticed an increase in his reading and comprehension speed. But he is too busy to dwell on it. His beloved wife is showing her own signs of increasing abilities. (Dr. Dark’s wonderful “regenerative resurrection.”)

    On the Wanderer Paha_siga is doing the same rapid scanning of what Betty and Dexter had set up. Either through a direct feed in the wall or wireless “s/he” has also scanned probable and possible places for the terrorists to use as a safe house based upon the size of the building and the size of the moving truck. Paha_siga gives them a list and on one of the big flat screens the Google Earth™ highlighting them by color from red being least, orange, yellow, white to blue being most probable as they wind their way following the phantom trail the terrorists unwittingly left for them.
    The moving truck was put together from errors in the CCTV shut downs. Small elements got through and Paha_siga extrapolated from its vast access to data to narrow down what the large moving truck was.

    I need a map and a directory to keep up with this one !

    My 51 I.Q. can follow regulation material just fine.

    Part of conception is to think up problems and then solutions. It can be quite hairy when I write myself into a corner. I have to do some major brainstorming to solve. And even so someone can come along and see a much different solution.
    I wish I could show the visuals. But the brain is rather good at it on its own when I give some information on it.

    IQ is malleable anyway. Not a good judge of intelligence.
    I should have put a comma just before “electronically.” Since it is Kato who is tracking electronically.

    The “I.Q.” remark was just so much snark. I don’t put much stock in it anyway. That test looks kind of just a fancy name for “aptitude test”. The more questions they ask that align with your background, the “smarter” you are.
    Give me an I.Q. test in French littered with French Tropes and I’m bound to be pegged as that kid who rides the short bus …. and talked about in whispers by polite folk.
    Give your average Chinese guy or gal, an I’Q’ test that you would give to a Uruguayan and you may get trouble even if the Chinese guy can read the form.

    I knew you were joking about it. Bennie Franklin was thought to be “addled” in his young age. Einstein didn’t start speaking till he was 4 years old.

    You have no doubt surmised that I like tech or geek speak as heard on Star Trek. I liked Mr. Spock the best. Then Lt. Commander Data after that then B’telan Torres …

    Good Morning Benders, John Wooley, and readers of Alley Oop. Detective Bob looks so much more professional with
    his trench coat and his hat pulled down to shade his eyes.
    I still like. So when the money is paid the detective will
    find out if Laronde is really kidnapped or just hiding out in a
    inconspicuous place like Palms Springs or Vegas.

    Spock is one of if not the favorite from that show. Data was good and I like Tuvok [Tyvek ?] and B’telan Torres too. I love Dr. McCoy for his crusty curmudgeonly comedy relief.
    In fact, I find Dr. Henglaar of the fanfic series Hidden Frontier to be the best reincarnation of the “good” Dr. The red head lady Dr. on TNG was good, but the Henglaar character takes it to new and snarky, cynical levels.
    Hidden Frontier goes through name changes but is essentially the same characters, some of which get promoted, die and otherwise age some. The different iterations [name
    changes] of the program are done by the same people. A lot of green screen and the series was mostly all done in a bedroom, save the outdoor shots. There is even an in depth gay relationship and sometimes rough language; something that could not be done on broadcast tv.
    James Cawley did some fan fics.
    This one has Walter Koenig and Gary Graham [alien Nation] in it. Also, Nichelle Nichols and some others.

    You seem to be forgetting that it’s 1942 … in 1942, Palm Springs was a World War II training facility, Desert Training Center (DTC), also known as California-Arizona Maneuver Area (CAMA) … and “Vegas”, by which I assume you mean “Las Vegas”, which in 1942 was NOT YET the glittering casino city (that happened AFTER WWII) but was an Air Force base and a construction worker town from the building of the Hoover Dam

    Just to put the money into perspective, in 1942 a 1942 Buick Roadmaster 4 dr Sedan’s list price was $1465 … so $5000 would be apprx $100,000 today or $50,000 would be apprx $1 million in today’s money

    I’m sure you will follow up with an attack of some sort upon me … after all, “no good deed goes unpunished”

    good deed? you are the one doing the attacking and the insulting here.

    i’m hoping this means you will immediately cease your self-appointed duties as head of the Bender Useless Recap Patrol (or BURP)
