The Hugo Award Novels, 1: 1953, The Demolished Man

Posted 05-06-2009 at 03:50 PM by chexmix

Alfred Bester's The Demolished Man, the first novel to be awarded science fiction's Hugo Award in 1953, gets the award off to a stellar start. Although its Freudian conclusion / solution rings a little false and its vision of a future supercomputer is as silly as anything from the 50s, the novel holds up extremely well and is a crackerjack ride.

I think it was Damon Knight who (lovingly) opined that Bester's characters were a series of funny hats, but that he was so energetic a writer...

A Thing To Not Do

Posted 05-05-2009 at 06:54 AM by chexmix

A very good thing to not do is to get a new version of the slackpkg utility & (whether because of fatigue, hurry or what have you) accidentally uncomment a line for a -stable mirror instead of the -current you are running. Because if you do that you will cluelessly downgrade yourself, at least partially, and wind up with a mess, and if you try to run slackpkg AGAIN to fix the mess you might get something that looks like this:

bash-3.1# slackpkg upgrade-all
