Don't let the socks bite!
First off, sockpuppet log updated. I have to hand it to the guy that runs that weird boycott site, he operates wide in the open. And it's just too funny to see him repeatedly asking twitter to stop.
Going on work/vacation to crusty old Europe for the next four weeks (well actually 2 work and 2 pleasure).
Have fun, behave and paste new sockpuppets and trollpuppets below *grin*

Sorry for the inconvenience.
In a nutshell, the article seems to imply that the planet is absorbing more solar energy (almost a megawatt per square kilometer!) than it radiates back, and this is causing a thermal imbalance which in turn accelerates or triggers tectonic activity. But it seems unclear how they measure the deadliness of a quake. Are more people dying because the earthquakes are more intense, or because larger numbers of people tend to live in the areas affected by them?"

I was looking at a magazine the other day and I found an advert for the Science Fiction Book Club . While my experience with CD clubs and the like in the past has not been entirely positive, I was prepared to give it a shot given the fact that it would be less expensive than Amazon in the long run. The problem was that their selection is not exactly grand. Having read the Simmons Hyperion Cantos for example, I was ready to give Ilium a go, but I could only find its sequel.
How do other Slashdot readers get their hands on SciFi books? I tried Googling for book clubs and the like but there's too much static out there, mostly caused by Oprah. Any suggestions would be appreciated!"
