I really REALLY need to get some work done over the vacation, so can anyone recommend a decent, free IDE? Ideally not dissimilar to XCode, as tha...

Re: Web Novels: Oktober and Pandora Tainted

yes, your jones character does not seem particularly english - 'busted' rather than 'broken' is massively american, as is the way you wrote the date. someone who had not been in the US for very long would still write it the english way, surely? i.e. dd/mm/yy. also possibly 'bill' instead of 'check',...

Doesn't that mean that someone is ripping off the publisher? isd that a pun? :S if not, then probably not because theyd have paid for the book in advance, so they're doing themselves out of money. probably broke even or slightly under, or possibly a little over.. i dont know how much books are to b...

Re: What are you readioactive now(and other book related stuff)?

currently reading a penguin modern classics book of kafka's short stories, which includes metamorphosis and the stoker. I am only a little way through and it's amazing. Kafka sometimes writes a page which just describes a person or scene, and i love it.

aside: how do you pronounce 'Gaiman'?
