    Question for the Mods...if I am looking for a proxy in Australia for a book, what's the proper way to do it? Start a WTB thread?

    Bligh: Master Mariner by Rob Mundle. It would be about $100 total to ship it from Dymock's. Even with an uncertain release in the U.S. not worth it. If you could find a used copy I'm even cool with that. This search reminded me how expensive books are in Oz.

    I'll be in Adelaide mostly, hardly a shopping Mecca. IIRC there is a half decent second hand store at the Central Market, so I'll have a look for you...

    Don't go out of your way. Its apparently on (or was on) the bestsellers list. Think it came out in late 09 so it shouldn't be too hard to find at a non-used bookstore.

    Is anyone aware that Ed is having a problem where one specific post showed up on his computer twelve hours after it was posted? I just want to bring it to everyone's attention that there may be database malfeasance in Georgia.

    He doesn't seem to think it's important enough to tell anyone about who can rectify the problem. So I'm taking it upon myself to make sure people are aware.

    And what post would this be? Inquiring minds want to know.

    well im not sure if it could be found on sale or if it would be cheaper to not be shipped from the seller. As I said, just don't go out of your way is all.

    Can we get a sock check on Richard Pryor? I feel like he's too big a tool to be an actual person.

    This is a very real issue and the cover-up is deep. I didn't know we were allowed to talk about it.

    This has never stopped me before.
