Endeavour Launch Now Slated For Monday 55

Posted by timothy

For anyone camping in Florida through the series of delays in the shuttle Endeavour's launch, it may be nearly time to get out the earplugs and champagne: though there's a fair chance of yet another weather delay, for now the shuttle's final launch is slated for tomorrow. If you're thinking of driving in to catch a glimpse, good news — a Monday launch may mean a smaller crowd.

An anonymous reader writes "Clear isn't getting specific about exactly how much usage is considered excessive, or how far back users should curtail use if they're looking to avoid the throttle monster. We've contacted Clearwire in the hopes of getting more specifics from the company in terms of what they consider excessive use, and/or what triggers "ISDN mode," but have yet to hear back"

Warcraft mythology is very unique and involving. There are so many angels that they could come from such as starting early in time when the titans were molding azeroth to the first great war by the burning legion through the well of eterntity. They could start with the more recent storyline started by Warcraft III or create a story in between WC3 and WoW. The only other franchise that has as deep a story behind it would be Magic TCG. Any who, if blizzard is going to be involved in production then I think they will fine tune it to give the impression they are shooting for as they have done in each of their games. I would also be interested in if they movie is going to be CGI or live-action. Blizzard has done some pretty nice looking cut scenes for their games that I would be interested in seeing how this works out. Also you can read up on Warcraft mythology on WoW's home page.

Daniel Oran writes "Before the Amazon Kindle, writers wrote books and readers read them. Period. Now, with Kindle, readers can talk back — before a book is even finished. Kindle appeared just as I was completing a second novel, so I decided to do with my novel what Web companies do with their new products: run an online beta test. I published my first novel the old-fashioned way: agent, publisher, bookstores, etc. But this time, I wanted a more interactive experience. As far as I'm aware, this is the first experiment of its kind on this new platform. And I suspect that it's just the beginning of a real revolution in the relationship between writers and readers."
