Very painful. But all this other stuff they added to it, I don know if that was the truth or not. But I don think that have anything to do with the way he died. Thanks for reminding me that I haven checked on Into the Black for a week. I bet there is a few new chapters to read by now. 😀 (Is it weird that is his only story I enjoy reading? The whole “sticking people on a firepit and eating them” turned me off of his other novel.
“Mark” (of course, not his real name) the head of MI6 recruitment, speaking to a broadcast microphone for the first time, revealed the need to recruit a wider spectrum of officers from different ethnic backgrounds. He said that SIS’s decision just over a year ago to try “open” recruitment as opposed to a surreptitious tap on the shoulder of potential recruits while they’re still at Oxbridge has yielded great benefits. He also said the service has sometimes suffered because of the James Bond association..
Manoharan and Rosetti set out to determine the base metabolic rate (BMR) for the elves and hobbits of Middle Earth if those humanoid species were actually real, of course. In other words, they set out to gauge the amount of energy their bodies need to function at rest. They did this by modeling each race as a mammalian Earth species.
I was asked to get involved because there was a potential Welsh link, albeit a very tenuous one.

It really slows me down.”Posted: 2007/04/27 at 6:27 PMNothing quite like formatting a fresh hard drive and doing a clean OS installation, only to have to spend a good half hour removing all the trial software, ISP adverts, and such that came inconveniently bundled in the software CDs of my laptop.Personally, I’m thinking buying a full box version of Windows would be better than these cheaper ad filled OEM versions. Too bad I don’t have hundreds of dollars to cough up.
