  1. Ordering from spidweb.com forwards you to Humble Bundle plus you get a free Steam key. So I guess that means the spidweb store is no longer working as a store but rather as a humble hub. Still, that's where I ordered from.
  2. Just finished Jon Krakauer's Where Men Win Glory. It's a personal account of why Pat Tillman went to war and how he never came back in one piece. Sad story I have to say.

  5. I just started and finished The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-time Indian by Sherman Alexie and really adored it as much as I liked his previous books. Oddly enough my daughter got it for her tenth birthday and my immediate response was: hang on - this can't be right. This should be for me. And right I was. I don't think she should read it before she's twelve or thirteen come to think of it.
  6. Sorry - when I read fake, I think of deceit. Hence the quotation marks. If this is not what you've implied... just think them away. When you speak of 'normal linguistic patterns' by which languages evolve - what exactly do you mean?
  7. It's been made up - nobody ever denied this. How is it fake?

The words are originally Treebeard's from the book 'The Return of the King' and have been translated to Elvish by a scholar of the 'fake' language. His name escapes me at the moment.

Lacking in graphics != Missing in graphics. For instance, this post is lacking in words, but it's not lacking words. Originally Posted By: Locmaar BTW - I used to play Pong or Pac-Man for pleasure. Yeah, my favorite game ever is Rogue, so it's not like graphics are very important to me.

    Coincidentally, other people did think about X strolling into Jeff's new world, but I can only remember my post about this.
  13. Don't. You'll get over it... eventually.
