Comment Re:Baen Books (Score 3, Informative) 304

You need to read Lois McMaster Bujold's Vorkosigan series. The series has 3 books that have won the Hugo for Best Novel and 3 others that were nominated but didn't win. It is one of the best scifi series out there.

Available from Baen. DRM free. Heck, completely free from here.

Go to the Cryoburn CD to find the files.

This is a site that is hosting the CDs that Baen will include in some hardcover books. The CDs are freely redistributable. Baen is aware of the site and while it doesn't actively support it, they haven't asked them to stop.

You can get the complete set of the Vorkosigan books (minus one story called Memory that was forgotten when they made the disc, ironic huh) including the most recent book that had the CD included. That's right, they included an ebook version when you bought the hardcopy.

The files are all drm free and they give you the option of getting the epub, mobi, lrf, txt, html and another format I'm forgetting.

How about actually reading the article.

The study found that children born one day before the Kindergarten cutoff date had a much higher rate of ADHD than those born the day after the cutoff.

No one is saying that it doesn't exist. It is severely over-diagnosed though.

Odds are extremely good that it was a Best Buy Rebate Gift Card. Very different from the regular Gift Cards. The rebate versions allow you to take the card to BB and get cash for it instead of having to purchase anything.

Basically it allows you to get the cash without having to cash a check.

This last Thanksgiving, most of the big dollar items (computers, cameras) had rebate giftcards as part of the rebate. It stated right there in the add that the rebate giftcards can be converted to cash. I also asked about 5 of the managers there if this was true, everyone said yes.
