ChaoticMind is not currently reading any books.
I’m 25 years old, male, from Lebanon. I’ve been a DailyLit member since January 27, 2007. My reading interests include "science fiction".
Is it just me, or are the last three parts (147, 148, and 149) empty? They're supposed to hold the last two chapters (ch 60 and 61).
Note: They can be found here: http://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Pride_and_Prejudice
So, is this the same case for everyone?
You can find a short story set in the same universe here: http://dir.salon.com/story/tech/feature/2003/08/26/truncat/index.html
It is set an undetermined amount of time after Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom, and the events are independent.
It's a good read, I enjoyed it. Unfortunately, it does leave you wanting more, as the book does.
I wish there was a send the next installment button :p
You can see the illustrations that the author made and mentions here: http://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Flatland. (click on the different sections)
There is also a preface that isn't included in the dailylit version.
the wikipedia link for http://www.dailylit.com/authors/edwin-abbott is wrong. it points out to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edwin_Abbott, whereas it should point to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edwin_Abbott_Abbott.
Also, great touch that the link exists in the first place.
Not sure if people would find this useful, or if it would be worth it in terms of coding effort, but I thought I'd put the idea out there just in case.
It might be desirable to have RSS feeds for forum topics (Much like google groups) or some other way to track a particular forum thread (maybe in the user profile), in case a user does not check the forums frequently, but would like to follow-up a particular thread. This can be especially helpful when the forums become larger.
The new design is great, thanks for your work.
I found that, when posting a new post in the forums, (not sure if it is also the case in replies as well) pressing enter does not actually return to a new line. This results in the text being all written in one paragraph, which can be an annoyance to read.
In the profile settings, it would be useful if there were some sort of directions on how to put spaces. If someone wants to put science fiction as a genre of interest, it would come as science, and fiction as two separate genres in your profile page. I know that it is possible to have it as one genre because it is done by Albert as seen on his profile page: http://www.dailylit.com/profiles/albert. I had to resort to putting Science%20fiction. I'm sure there has to be a more appropriate way :)
I'd like to see Accelerando added to the list of books. it's a sci-fi book released under the creative commons license. it can be obtained here: http://www.accelerando.org/2006/03/17/#download-2
