I loved his reaction to seeing a certain Wizzard at the University. :lol:

Had never heard of him, but went to see him read at the con. He was so funny and read some bizarre fan fiction. I'll definitely check out some of his videos when I get home.

The Mark reads site is currently blocked by my antivirus software as an unsafe to navigate site due to the presence of the Blackhat SEO malware virus

One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

A short while ago, Mark's Twitter said:
"For those using AVG and getting a blackhat warning: clear your cache. AVG is reading an old version of my sites!"

At the Discworld con, Mark read "Troll Bridge." It was filmed, and the film is said to be being sent to Mark so he can post it. :D

I'm still getting AVG blocking the site, despite clearing the cache. I've found I need to temporarily turn AVG off.

If anyone wants to watch the videos without risking any potential virus threat, you can watch them on his YouTube Channel. These are updated every Sunday. You won't get Mark's write ups of each section, but it's worth checking out. :)

I'm a little puzzled. He's reading them on Kindle. Previous books seemed to have the UK text (no changes to US versions) but this one has potato chips instead of crisps and a few other minor differences. Those changes weren't made in the original printed US editions; I'm reading along in the old Signet paperback and it has crisps, etc. I wonder why Kindle made the changes?

I noticed that too, hope there aren't too many differences...
