Yes, it is. I'll get a question together soon.

Forgive the lapse, please. Those who have followed How Do You Feel Today in GenDisc probably know that Menolly was re-hospitalized recently...and my Real Life commitments to her, Dam-sel, and Dam-et take precedence over my online life...at least when it counts.

By the way, all is well now.

Please let my best wishes for a speedy and complete recovery flow through to her!

And take your time. Smile

What IrrationalSanity said, Savor Dam. Sorry, I've made the error of not checking in to that GenDisc thread the last few days. Whenever you're ready. I am so glad that is behind Menolly now, and am likewise wishing her a speedy recovery. Cross Fingers

Before being called the Governing Council for Earth and Space, what name did the GCES go by and why was the name changed?

No, although some of those words do figure in. The "why" part of the question and how the words differ are related.

Space Mines Inc or something like that? And it changed because Earth became part of their jurisdiction... I just can't quite remember the details!

Also on the right track.

The UMC was formerly known as Space Mines, Inc. What was the GCES previously called?

Yes.

It all began as an agency that basically was a clearinghouse for orbital data on stations and other space-objects, so collisions could be avoided.

In the ADAHGA chapter Ancillary Documentation: Governing Council for Earth and Space, SRD wrote:
As the competition for Earth's last great resource -- Space -- grew more and more desperarte, the Agency came to be seen as increasingly vital; sometimes as a means to gain advantage; more commonly as a means to prevent the opposition from gaining advantage...

This was predictable, even though it was not foreseen when the original entity was created. Because Space was a political as well as physical vacuum, chaos threatened to render the Agency useless as nations and corporations clamored to seat their representatives...

Soon...the Agency -- now called the Governing Council for Space -- succeeded in rechartering itself as a separate, independent organism...

Predictably -- and yet almost accidentally -- the Council found itself unable to meet its responsibilities unless it expanded its function to include overseeing the conduct of its constituent nations and corporations on Earth as well as in Space.

Forgive the abridgment of SRD's prose to focus on the salient bits. His full text is in the referenced chapter

Stevie has the next question!

Oh, you want me to ask a question Very Happy (I was enjoying the popcorn)

There were three reasons Holt Fasner kept his mother alive. What were they?

Sheesh, one was because she hated him. Very Happy

Uh, she was very discerning, good at picking out patterns in data etc.

And he loved her. Very Happy

One out of three so far Very Happy

Quote:
He kept Norna Fasner alive precisely because she wished him ill with such steady virulence


The second reason is close, but not quite there. And no, he didn't love her!

Two more to go Very Happy

My apologies, StevieG! I was enjoying the popcorn too much, and was afraid it wouldn't look polite if I talked with my mouth full. Wink

I think one reason Holt kept his mother alive was because she unwillingly gave him good advice.
