"The stone cannot know why the chisel cleaves it; the iron cannot know why the fire scorches it. When thy life is cleft and scorched, when death and despair leap at thee, beat not thy breast and curse thy evil fate, but thank the Builder for the trials that shape thee."

I added LibriVox and Project Gutenberg (under the new Books section), and Bad Astronomy, to the Links page. I also added the Essays and Short stories sections to the Books page. I've read a lot more than those which are already on there, but those were the ones I could think of off the top of my head (I'll add the remaining ones as I remember them).

I bought the entire Commander Keen series and also a small indie game called Gumboy Crazy Adventures (which is superbly excellent) from Steam. Online delivery of games (particularly indie games) is wonderful. The corollary, of course, is death to brick-and-mortar software stores!

I've been playing a lot of N lately. I immediately realized it was long, but I had no idea (I'm currently at Episode 59 out of 100). It's wickedly fun, go try it.
