It's sunny. I like that.

And I took a lunch break yesterday and felt much better for doing so. I think I'll have another one today Smiley

I liked the comment the reviewer made - "Arguably one of the best 'Space Operas' ever written, even if the name does somewhat baffle. "

...and from Wikipedia...

"The editors of the Vance Integral Edition restored the author's preferred title for the first book: The Chasch. They also altered the second to The Wannek and replaced 'Wankh' with 'Wannek' throughout the text. Vance was convinced to change the name after being informed of the meaning of the word 'wank' in British and Commonwealth slang."

 Cheesy  Thank goodness for that explanation. For some reason, I can't view products on Amazon. I can get the home page and a list of stuff, but if I click on any individual one, it just sits there doing nothing and won't load. I've tried it in IE as well as Firefox and it's the same story. It's really getting to me as I want to buy a Genesis remaster box.  Angry

Right, I've done it. Amazon still no worky for me. I can view everything normally, except product pages. Weird. I might have to drop them an Email.

...And this really nice weather we've been having recently makes me smile.  Smiley

The first daffodil is peeking out in my garden. 

Is that a euphemism ?

This made me smile:

Quote
Dear all,

Sorry about the continued absence of the Frost* forum. This is due to the
current hosting company dragging their heels in helping us transfer our
world to a new hosting provider after their heavy handed tactics in helping
us deal with a virus the site became infected with. They have been, in
short, a total pain in the **** in helping us sort it out so I decided we
should take our business elsewhere. Suffice to say, they've not been very
helpful in assisting our departure either.

Rest assured though that we're working on getting it back up and running
asap. Sorry for the continued disruption. More news as we get it.

All the best, Jem

PS. Sorry also to all those who were awaiting a confirmation email about
account activation to the forum. Some people have been waiting over a
year!!!! This was due to an incorrect email forwarding address set in the
system. Most likely by me when drunk, or sober, or on fire. You should all
be receiving them very shortly, if not already. I totally appreciate if
you've long since moved on from Frost* in that time. Sorry for bothering
you if you have.

If it's any consolation, I've also moved on from Frost*. I'm a Greengrocer
now...
