Well, I sort of have an excuse for not updating lately (aside from nothing happening). Most of the time I've spent on the computer has been writing other stuff, some of which I should be able to link to fairly soon.

I picked up a copy of Good Omens, by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, the other day, along with a copy of Linux Journal. LJ turned out to be a pretty cool mag.

Good Omens was excellent. It's the kind of book that gets a lot of comparisons to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and actually deserves them just in terms of sheer weird Brit flavored laugh value. It's about the apocalypse, main characters including an angel/bookseller, a demon, the Antichrist, a psychic witch, and a couple of witchfinders... Actually, it's not really quite the same sort of book as the Guide, and in some ways I think it's a better one. Both Pratchett and Gaiman are definitely on the list of People I Wish I Could Write Like.

Stephen picked up a domain name. Cool.

I've been trying to think of a good name, domains being reasonably priced these days. The obvious choices appear to have been taken. Something short and distinctive would be nice... Any suggestions?
