... they used Kickstarter to fund their new site?
One issue here in the UK is that ebooks attract a VAT charge of 20% whereas printed books do not, so even if the publisher does set the ebook price lower the compulsory VAT charge pushes it back up again.
When the prices are very close it's a toss-up as to which format to buy. With a physical book you get all the experience that goes with it plus you are able to easily lend/give or even resell the book once done. With the ebook you get to keep that book forever and it takes up absolutely no space in my already crowded room.
Seriously, it's they're. That just looks sloppy.
Give trolls a taste of they are misery...?
'their' is correct in this case, as in a taste of the medicine owned by the trolls.
They did target their audience. After all, they just got some free advice from geeks on how to better target their audience.
The linked article says that this is a drama 'based on real life events'. I'm not really sure this can be classified as a documentary. I'm sure we've all seen films supposedly based on real life events and know how believable they tend to be...
If, by some strange miracle, Intel decided that there was a market for modern-day PCs equivalent in performance to ~33MHz Pentiums with 16 megs of RAM, they could definitely fab something that fulfilled that performance objective while using next to no power, even if the OS did no power management at all.
It took about time, I was already growing roots waiting for this to come up.

Assuming you're close enough to the exchange for ADSL to not suck, switch to O2. They've been the best ADSL provider I've had here in the UK.
No caps, no "peak-time" and the speeds are close to as advertised (I pay for a 20Mb line and get 18Mb, with BT it was down at 12Mb, on the same telephone line as well, so figure that one out)
Where's the whatcouldpossiblygowrong tag when you need it?
Apple removed them after getting complaints that they were degrading to women.
How exactly is this degrading to women?
If you do buy it direct from 2D Boy you can register your copy within Steam with the CD-Key and then get all the benefits of having the Steam version.
I guess The Little Shop Of Horrors is out for you too.
I'd urge everyone to give Parchment a try
Parchment is a project dedicated to running IF games in your browser, and it does so wonderfully. You can even SAVE your progress, and it gives you a bookmarkable URL you can use to resume your game at a later date. That page tells you how to get any Zcode game playable on Parchment, and the page below has links to loads of IF games that have already been made available.
I'd recommend giving Curses a go, although maybe not if you are completely new to IF.
Couple it with something like Allwaysync Portable to synchronise the USB stick when it is plugged in and it should work fine.
