The Cylons have a plan: provide enough dramatic tension to make it to Season 4.

Battlestar Galactica's Last Days

hopkimi Re:the inheritor of star trek (799 comments)

We should also look at "Ender's Game" as a classic example of a moral issue presented in a sci-fi wrapper. I think that novel looked at what it takes to wage war on someone: a willful ignorance of who you are warring against. Or saying it another way: if you truly know someone, how they think and why they did everything, you can't hate them.

Mobipocket web site down for a week now

hopkimi hopkimi writes  |  about 7 years ago

hopkimi writes "Ebook seller, mobipocket.com, has had a maintenance page up for a week now. They haven't given any details on what is keeping the site down. But it means more than not being able to purchase a new ebook. If you already bought a book from them, you might have trouble reading it. I bought a book and read about a third of it before the smartphone I was reading it on died. I got a replacement phone quickly, but when I reinstalled the Mobipocket reader on it and tried to copy the book over from my desktop, I got an error message. Apparently, their DRM scheme requires the client to reach the mobipocket.com site and verify that I have the rights to continue reading a book I purchased 2 weeks ago. Bottom line: I can't read the book until they get their site up. Pain in the arse."
