OS's and Browsers posted 10 March 2004 in Off-Topic DiscussionOS's and Browsers by Clarkesworld Books, Peralogue

I've grown to prefer Linux over windows. My background is actually in computer science, so I've been using a variety of unix-variants for a long time. I do a lot of coding in PHP and web design as well. I'm currently redesigning my store via php and mysql. At my day job, I design online courses.

Browser is Mozilla based.

At work I have to use Windows/Netscape/IE. I avoid IE unless I am working with a customer or testing web compatibility.

What sort of courses do you design?[/quote:xuqaj1az]

A good portion of the courses are designed in a CMS called Blackboard. I try to expand beyond that where I can. For the most part I'm working directly with someone from the faculty. I'm also designing courses to help them learn how design for and teach in an online environment. My goal is to make my job obsolete. I'll be gone from there long before that happens though.

Cool, thanks Neil. Btw, I see that you have TDTCB for order on your website, do you ship to Guam? Considering that it's taken for international even though it's still US territory... *grumble*

Thanks in advance.[/quote:348o9uj5]

Just sold my last copy of the Canadian TPB edition and I can't find anyone willing to ship me some more. If you want to wait for the US hardcover edition, yes, I'll ship to Guam. I'm not picky about things like that.

Yes, they are university-level courses. Mostly undergraduate, but there are a few at the graduate level. Most of the classes offered at the university are traditional in the classroom or a mix of classroom and online. A smaller percentage are totally online.

I'm currently working for FDU (Fairleigh Dickenson University) in Madison, NJ. I'll probably be somewhere else within a year. Not that it's a bad place, they just don't pay that well and this work is well below what I've done in the last university I worked for (Drew). I was Director of Academic Technology there for over 10 years.

I'm currently reading Neil Gaiman's Adventures in the Dream Trade and just finished Tim Lebbon's Changing of Faces. CoF is a followup to the Naming of Parts novella and is every bit as good. If you like horror, Lebbon is a writer you need to check out.

Mozilla (or whatever it's name is this month) is definitely worth using over IE if for nothing more than tabbed browsing. I go nuts switching back to IE at work.

Any chance that there will be some visits to the US when the hardcover edition is published here?

Altered Carbon is really good. You should pick up the sequel, Broken Angels!

I'll have to say that I'm more pleased with Neal Stephenson's QUICKSILVER now that I've read THE CONFUSION. I was on the fence, but this strengthened the series for me. Getting a signed copy was also very nice.

I'm currently reading The San Veneficio Canon by Michael Cisco and enjoying it a lot. Very unusual. If you like Thomas Ligotti, you might like this.

Oh the frustration of being in the US... I still haven't been able to find a good source for importing Canadian books yet.

have you tried amazon.ca yet?[/quote:2o28td0o]

I'm a bookseller, so I have a hard time sending Amazon any of my money. What I've been hoping to find is another independant bookseller in Canada who would be willing to help me import copies for people here.

If anyone is on good terms with a bookseller out there, let me know!

Been listening to the Killers and Franz Ferdinand. Heard their singles on the radio and decided to get the cds. I believe both are British bands.[/quote:3w16g9fu]

How are those? I have been considering them myself.

@Neil - Both are pretty good although I haven't listened to them a lot yet. Keep forgetting to bring the cds with me in the car. Anyway I'd say I am leaning a little more towards the Killers as the better. But FF has a couple of good singles on it and also sound a lot more British than the Killers.[/quote:1mfzemem]

Thanks! Can't afford either right now, but will get them sometime.

For a US Reader -- posted 15 July 2004 in The Warrior ProphetFor a US Reader -- by Clarkesworld Books, Peralogue

I may be able to help some fellow US fans. A friend of mine is bringing back a small pile of them for my store. I may not see him for a few weeks, but there is hope. Haven't been able to find a bookstore that would help me import them in larger quantities yet, but I'm not giving up.
