Picked up my copy of Destiny's Way yesterday, ended up reading it all last night (erk).

It's pretty damn good. Not as freak-out as Traitor-- but we get to see Vergere having a "discussion" with Luke which I was looking forward to. Anyway, some of the Vong get their just desserts, vital events occur and it's mostly good. Also some explanation of just what went on with Nen Yim when she was first introduced, good for simpletons like me who didn't understand it all.

Nice :) I need to stop tearing through books so damn fast though.

Also probably ought to put the booklist generator up on my webpage along with other stuff. I'm gradually rebuilding Arise (the site, not the machine), although all I've done so far is redo the photo collection into some Mason components (very swish though, backed by PostgreSQL and all).

I want to start looking for a new job soon, so I ought to be finding things to up up as demonstrations that I can actually do useful stuff... Another project in the works is a Perl module to interface to libcrypto-- probably just like OpenCA, but that requires OpenSSL 0.9.7 iirc, which still hasn't been released. When that's done I want to build a CA management app. using Mason, yum yum...

Destiny's Way
Yeah, I read that in one marathon session, too. I always say that I'm not going to, but I just don't have that much willpower. Discussion? Poor Luke was absolutely blindsided. Not that that's necessarily a bad thing, because he needed something to push him into action. I still don't understasnd the whole Nen Yim aspect, but that's probably because I burned through the book. I agree that most of it was good, with the notable exception of the end, which felt both incredibly rushed and anti-climactic.
