  1. While I was at the Festival of the Senses this past weekend, I stopped by the library's used book sale and bought a book (what else? <img src="graemlins/tongueold.gif" alt="tongue" title="tongue" height="15" width="15" /> ) titled <span style="font-style: italic">Far As Human Eye Could See</span> by Isaac Asimov. I haven't read beyond the front and back cover, but it sounds intriguing.

I'm also reading the textbook for my class, Starting Out With Programming Logic & Design by Tony Gaddis. Since I've already had a class in programming logic, I'm not really learning anything new.
  3. I found some BoE-related articles archived here; they're a bit old, but helpful. This article in particular may be of interest to you.
  4. Originally Posted By: Tunnel and Sky Collide Finished Brave New World. What an interesting book, and it's terrifying because we are certainly headed down that road. Hey at least we'll have soma. I haven't read Brave New World since high school, but yeah, it can be rather freaky depending on your interpretation. As for soma, no thanks; I'd rather have a Soma Cube.
  5. My middle school/high school reading list was quite extensive, but don't ask me to put it in chronological order without a time machine. Here's as much as I can remember, in no particular order: full books Click to reveal.. The Chronicles of Narnia (All. Seven. Books. In the same semester.) To Kill a Mockingbird The Prince and the Pauper The Scarlet Letter Our Town The Hobbit Romeo and Juliet (twice) Macbeth Hamlet King Lear Jane Eyre Great Expectations Pygmalion Catcher in the Rye Lord of the Flies Oedipus Rex Wuthering Heights The Outsiders 1984

  8. Fairly certain. He's also afraid that his cellphone might attack him and/or explode if he presses the wrong button, and is still trying to learn how to program his VCR.

I once heard some guy really confuse Facebook, Twitter, and Myspace. He referred to them interchangeably as "Twitspace," "Twitbook," and "Myface." Then again, one dictionary he had was so old that the only definition listed for "computer" was some kind of accountant...

I think you may be confused. It sounds like you're talking about twitter The same could also be said of myspace.
  11. Yeah, I've noticed an oldbie stopping by every now and again. Once a Spiderwebber, always a Spiderwebber, apparently. Originally Posted By: Celtic Minstrel (much as I'd hate to do so, I hate Facebook even more) Same here. Or more accurately, Facebook hates me.
  12. "Drain Missiles" has you use two charges instead of one when you shoot; in other words, if you have a stack of ten arrows and equip a bow with "Drain Missiles" ability, you actually have five shots. I don't remember what "Soul Sucker" does.

It would make for one heck of a lawn ornament; of course, that means I wouldn't have much of a lawn....
  14. As part of my goal to learn a new programming language, I'm reading C++ Without Fear by Brian Overland. It's the first (and so far, only) C++ book I've found that doesn't assume you have at least a PhD in computer programming or write code for a living.
