I kinda wanna add a specific place on the suricrasia online website for my stories and call it "artefacts from PORTAL" or something
like my lecture slides for the thermal echo effect, and the (unpublished) fake review of a fake game by a fake person for a fake games review site archived by a fake web archiving service
@SuricrasiaOnline My one not-criticism-but-more-just-me-saying-"darn" of this is that I use "artefact" to mean "the not-necessily-intended fingerprints of a process or medium on a created object" (as distinct from "artifact", which has the standard definition).
@SuricrasiaOnline Artefacts from PORTAL, such as how things retrieved from PORTAL often reflect light back at colors/frequencies/per-photon-energy-levels which are not actually possible to achieve with the atoms/molecules of our universe.
@gaditb (I didn't read the body because I don't wanna get spoiled on some of the stephenson books I haven't read yet)
@SuricrasiaOnline (Sorry there isn't a good way to answer this without at least giving WHAT thing is a spoiler to SOMETHING, even without that "something" revealed.)
The body is just citing which book I took a thing from for the previous post.
@SuricrasiaOnline (So it just says "(Shamelessly stolen from ___)", and if you've read it (and remember that bit, I guess) then you can fill in the blank yourself prolly.)
