    Just wondering.

    I believe I've already told you that I have, j2. Did you ever get the audio books?

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t

    No, MN, I didn't.

    I wanted it for my Mom, as any book that long, in fine print, would be beyond her; she hasn't that kind of "sit-down" time.

    I had a bit of a burr at the time to get it as her birthday was nearing, but PC problems put an end to my effort, and I haven't renewed my it.

    Perhaps now would be the time; I could wrap it up nicely for Christmas.

    Is DC++ still the way to go?


    Chame1eon-

    You should read a few more, then; it doesn't really roll until 150 pages or so are gone...

    Yeah, DC++ is still the easiest way to get it. Although if you use SoulSeek, it's possible Lamsey or J'Pol might have it, as they have a good selection of audiobooks (or did the last time I popped in).

    A bit ot I suppose, but isn't that book very self oriented.

    All about looking out for number one and such, I haven't actually read it, but I came across a few references to it when doing research, and it didn't sound positive.

    It is a very controversial book, Snny, mostly because it makes a very decisive case for capitalism.

    I recommend it highly, even, and especially, to those who think capitalism the scourge of man, because, as is often said, one does well to understand one's "enemy".

    One of the reasons it is viewed askance (apart from it being a daunting read, length-wise) is that it has had the effect of converting, or at least enlightening, those who are anti-capitalist.

    In any case, it is worth your while.

    Thank you for your view on the matter then.

    I'll try to get a hold of it then.


    That does sound interesting in an intimidating sort of way.

    Do yourself the following favor:

    Try to find it in hardcover, 'cuz reading fine-print in the crack of a paperback kinda sucks.

    Also: It doesn't really take flight until you are about 150-200 pages in.

    That's one of the reasons it isn't as widely read as it deserves.

    If you follow through, I'll be very proud of you, Snny.

    I kid you not, it will keep you awake at night, after you put it down.
