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

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...

You might want to publish e-books through webpage so that everyone can download from your space. In order to setup the required environment, we need to follow up the following steps:

1. Place all the Books under /var/www/html/ebook.
2. Uncomment the following lines under /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf so that the output should alike :

ServerAdmin root

A Thing To Not Do

Posted 05-05-2009 at 07:54 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
