Hm, this is another recent topic I was skeptical about before realising it's potential.

I don't have any internet accounts of value, but I could like, totally understand people including such accounts with their important records. Copyrighted pictures, music, writing and stuff (I'm thinking blogs here) would all have to have their ownership status taken care of...
Not sure if internet companies who were left in the dark about your condition, after finding out would be strict enough to track down who was legally responsible to cover unpaid bandwidth charges, etc. >_>

Isn't the thing about fossil fuels that: there are as yet unused reserves but they are in areas people haven't been able to reach yet? Maybe they are too small for the cost to get at them.

BTW What's the best conductor of electricity? I know that computer circuits use gold...

Well, wouldn't a power plant be a system which would seriously benefit from efficiencies of scale? Maybe this isn't exactly the right term to use, but I mean very significant effeciency increases compared to many small, separate things like you mentioned.

Maybe wind and solar could be used now - until fusion plants come along, then you won't need more fission plants and their excess waste.

EDIT: What sort of limits are there on the transport of energy? eg: Would it be possible to stack the Mojave desert full of solar panels to contribute to the power supply of NYC?

Ok, we sort of seem to agree on Draco. I assumed that Draco wouldn't be able to help Harry without risking his well-being, so that's good.

You're right, it would be completely out of character for Snape to save Harry's life or something like that.
Oh, wait. That already happened.

What occasion are you talking about right now?

What I meant to write, but didn't, was that Snape would be in the same situation as Draco in that - being a Death Eater, time until the inevitable confrontation of V vs H running out and Voldie planning whatever, I assumed that Snape would not have as much free space/time to do things. My thought was that things in the DE camp would be busy preparing for nasty encounters, and Voldie would be more prepared to come out of the open to meet Harry when he feels the time is right. If Snape wanted to help Harry he couldn't do so publicly obviously, and with the mounting preparations by the DEs, Snape would be presented with much fewer options to help Harry in secret (plus Harry doesn't trust him at all now, and we don't know how much the Order members know of anything, even if Snape is commited to the Order we don't know if anyone else in what's left of the Order trusts him).

With all these random assumptions I really should have mentioned, then my thought was that if Snape wished to help Harry defeat Voldie then he would have no option but risk himself considerably. And this would then be the interesting part of the final development of Snape's character, if he could find enough reasons to risk himself in this way.

EDIT:
My point about what you said about extreme circumstances was: are the circumstances extreme enough for Snape to help Harry risking Voldie's wrath without a change in heart? To the best of the reader's knowledge, in Voldie's camp, Snape is just another DE, it's not like he is being targeted as a fall guy or something. With DD dead, the Order, we guess Voldie's main opposition in HBP alongside the MoM, is thrown into chaos. Things are looking up for the DEs and I'm just not sure that it wouldn't take anything short of a change of heart to some extent for Snape to leave the side which seems to be getting stronger by the day, and try to join the other team, who don't seem to trust him for squat now.

That's why I think it would be truly heroic if Snape and or Draco help Harry. I think if they did so it would come from an important character decision to do so (I just think that the conditions aren't extreme enough as far as I can tell).

I'm going to read the book my second time starting next weekend, so if you think I've missed something which negates my logic please say so.

BTW please don't rip me apart for spelling mistakes, I seem to lack spelling profficiency (sp?).

quote:
Originally written by Ash Lael:

Character is who they are, not what they do. I can't see how that would reveal anything new about them, so if they aren't your favourites now, why would that change it?
This says to me that you think that their characters would not change no matter what decisions they make in the last book, and I think you're wrong.

quote:
Action reveals character, sure. But they are still two distinct things.
Here you contradict what I first quoted you to say in this post. Good one, bro.

Of course they are distinct, maybe I just think they are more closely related than you think they are:
actions define character, character describes under which conditions you make certain choices of action.

quote:
Both characters, as they are now, would be willing to work with Harry if they were in sufficiently extreme circumstances.
How much money would you pay a thug who had his knife at your neck? This is a vague arguement bro.

Snape could easily not help Harry at all, because for all the readers know, Voldie has no reason to suspect Snape of anything. He would therefore have to take a giant leap from the character we know to help Harry, putting himself at great risk from Voldie. I am interested in the idea that Snape is not on anyone's side right now, that he has played both sides, and keeps putting off the final decision of who to fully support. Any course of action he would then make would be a change of character.

Draco has been portrayed to be Harry's biggest competitor at school, except that they are not equals in rivalry, Draco mostly falls short of Harry's achievements with the exception of his devotion to his task in HBP (although I think if Harry was as afraid to fail - thus jeopardising the safety of those he cares about - as Draco, he could have done it too). His portrayal has been always in opposition to Harry (and losing), so I would not brush aside the choice to willingly help him so lightly.

It is not comfirmed, but it can be assumed that Draco is a Death Eater, because of his task etc and he hides his arm, so I believe helping Harry would be a change in character for Draco and well as Snape.

Of course part of character is what you do. How could you think this is not the case? You seem to think that character is defined at birth and no matter what someone does, they never change.

Right now they are my favourite characters, but because the last book is unpublished, the last year of development of the characters is unknown. The last book will define these characters, at the end of HBP these two are at crossroads, they have many choices they can make which will define who they really are, they have not made those choices yet. So I don't really see how you can justify what you just said.

These two character would not be my favourites if JKR just depicted Draco's uncertainty when about to kill Dumbledore as just a one-off, and continue to show him to be a one-dimentional EVOL PRIEST. I don't care if Draco ends up helping Harry or not, I would just be disappointed if he ends up not being as interesting as he seems now. I wonder at his I-must-do-bad-things-to-Harry-and-his-mates attitude (even though he always seems to fail) and his motives.

Snape so far is a more interesting character than Draco, because his position is more pivotal to the plot. The same things can be said about him - we don't know if he'll help Harry or not, we don't know his motives.

They would not be my favourite characters if they did not continue to be complex, if it was all a hoax/facade, as could easily happen.

EDIT: I wonder what Spring thinks about this.

Well, in HP Harry is obviously the major hero, with help from Hermione and Ron.

I think Snape and/or Draco will somehow be a minor hero. As discussed in the second MuggleCast, I think either unknowingly or knowingly - in a short alliance (for a very short time, they don't LIKE Harry) they will contribute to Harry's efforts in some way. If they do, they will be my favourite heroes.
