[color=#000000ost_uid0]Yes, it really is me.

Who is that booing back there?

Anyway, long story short (or in fiver form to be more accurate) -

Network Router: GAK!
PHJ: $%*^=$!£@

Currently only one of the computers in the house can actually connect to the internet, and it ain't mine. So, I dunno when I'll next be on after today, but hopefully I won't have to wait yet another month.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Very definitely the terminal kind. The eulogy at it's funeral was beautiful though.

On a completely unrelated note (F sharp to be precise), I did finally manage to get a hold of something by Orson Scott Card (called [iost_uid0]Songmaster[/iost_uid0]) from Stoke library, which when I finally managed to join I discovered had only three shelves of SF. And pretty naff SF at that. And if you want to request something they charge you eighty pence.

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Bah. I read [iost_uid0]Songmaster[/iost_uid0] and hated it. Please tell me Mr. Card wrote some better books than that, because if not I don't think I'll bother reading any others.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Read the Ender's Game saga. It's [iost_uid0]more[/iost_uid0] than excellent. There are seven books in the series now, so get cracking! [/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Hmm. To tell the truth I haven't read that. The libraries here are very sketching with Card books, damn their souls to the bowels of the Infernal Pit. Is it any good?[/colorost_uid0]
