in thread The sort of fiction you're most likely to find me reading:

Speaking of a series too long, have you tried L Ron Hubbard's Mission Earth series? I bought all of them as a package deal at a yard sale (10 volumes if I remember)... I only made it to the third one before I gave up on it entirely. That man could be long winded for sure! :)

Battlefield Earth was a good read. But hack off the last 200 pages or so and it's much better :)

Whip me, Beat me, Make me use Y-ModemG.

[Discipulus]: i'm not escaping correctly?

[moritz]: not inside a single-qouted string at least
