I’m backish

Moved to Wellington and have been working in my new job for a few weeks and all my stuff is finally down here. Got a nice flat to live in and I have it all to myself which means I can keep it as clean or unclean as I want! Right now it looks beautiful and I’ve even been accused of being a metrosexual. I don’t think that’s a good thing.

The bad news is I’m on a wireless CDMA-based internet service (I don’t need or want a phone line and all the overhead that goes with it) and the connection is very very slow. Slower than 56k most of the time. This is only because I have terrible coverage right where I am. I’m not entirely sure why, but it’s probably just bad luck with where the base stations are, oh well! But anyway, this clearly is bad news for any playing of Second Life. Not sure how it will go in the future. If anything changes I’ll let folks know.

    Q. Won't the book get out of date?
    A. No, O'Reilly ebook owners get updates for free for life as the game changes and I edit the manuscript. Others can register their book at O'Reilly.com for $5.

    Q. Does Toady, the designer, approve?
    A. It was Toady who suggested O'Reilly contact me to write the book when they were looking for an author, and he wrote the foreword. He's a big fan!

    Q. Does Toady get a cut of profits? A. I am making donations to Toady each month based on my own royalties. Toady will also benefit from the donations brought by all the new players!
