:D
Lucky you. Copying the books shouldn't take too long, I guess.
Glad the memory wasn't corrupted so you have no trouble getting the books back.
On with their heads! I'm the clown prince of fools
if you don't get the joke it's your loss
Love and laughter you see are the new currency
'cause greed's coinage is not worth a toss

Exile yourself to the unforgiving continent of Wraeclast!

Oh the irony
If you can fill the unforgiving minute,
With sixty seconds worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a man my son.

The last one probably died of shame from all the "bargains" you had on there, Chris. :lol:

Oh my god that had never occurred to me before, could the librarian take a wrong turning in l-space an end up trapped in a kindle? Or worse what would happen if ponder found a way of connecting hex to the library?

Isn't Hex already connected to L-space? That's why Ponder is the Reader in Invisible Writings - he uses Hex to find books that haven't been written yet, or will never be written. I think that means he's using L-space.
