New E-mail

I have temporarily lost access to my home E-mail account. That account died completely (and probably won’t be resureccted) around Jan 10. I’ve got a few hundred E-mail boxes available on the server that serves up this very site (thanks to 1 and 1), so I’ve created a new acount there.

I’m not going to post the address here, but if you have an address for me just take the username (the part before the @ symbol) and graft it onto, and it will probably work. If you get it wrong I’ll probably get it anyway as all mail going to gets to me eventually.

If you have my Gmail address that one is still good also. If you don’t have it, it’s because I usually only use that one for mailing lists and other boring stuff. It’s not because I don’t like you. 🙂

Sorry about all the chaos. I prefer stability, but I can’t control a lot of things (or actually anything).

Science Fiction onslaught

OK, so I’ve got too much time on my hands (lately). I read a lot, but mostly non-fiction books. I like to have something around just for pleasure so I don’t feel like I’m working all the time.

 I went to Half Price Books and picked up a copy of Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card for a few bucks. It’s one of the many Science Fiction books I’ve always wanted to read and never got around to.

I’ve read nearly everything Robert Heinlein ever wrote. I’ve read Asimov’s Foundation trilogy and the Robot novels and a few other things. I’ve read Dune, the Hitch Hiker’s guide series, 1984, Brave New World and a lot of other books. There’s still tons of good Sci Fi out there I haven’t read, though.

I found a list of the top 20 Science Fiction novels (evar!!!) that I had saved somewhere, and plugged all the ones I haven’t read into my Amazon wishlist. It’ll give me something to work on for the next few months. Probably won’t make me any less of a geek, though.
