I was locked out of LJ all night last night, but it seems many weren't. I had over a hundred entries to read when I finally got here. No time for comments.|
Script kiddies are usurping my time!
None of the books on my shelves have ever been subject to DDoS attacks. This is a handy feature of the book, as a means of distributing text. I think I will buy some more of them.
I have never read anything by Robert Crais. There was an article about him in the Sacramento Bee today (no time to check and see if it is posted at their web site.) Maybe I'll pick up something of his. Looks interesting. I am fond of detective novels. If I wrote one myself, it would be about a serial killer who ends the miserable lives of script kiddies. He'd get away with it, of course.

I really like his books. He writes Robert Parker-type novels, sarcastic detective with invincible sidekick, but he comes up with unusual situations and perceptive observations about people, with delightful dialog. Also, he has a really tough cat! In times like these, that invincible sidekick is appealing.
Well, if there's a cat, then I have to read him!

Ah, there it is! Thanks.
Is it my imagination, or does he bear a strong resemblance to Henry Rollins

Indeed, except for the hair they could be one and the same. Anyone got a good cConspiracy theory?
When I opened sacbee.com again I got a popup offering free delivery of the newspaper. I'm guessing they are only targeting that towards Sac area readers, unless they have opened up an East Cumbria branch, which I highly doubt. *goes to check at the newsagents*
Please do write that, I would love to read. And mail me a signed copy ;)
