Killing the e-book softly…

(Title should be sang along the melody of ‘Killing me softly’)

Link

This is the way to kill the e-book, yet again. Please keep fighting over copyright, keep trying to get the price as high as possible. That way copying a book will become the norm, instead of something that happens occasionally :-(

I knew people have aquariums, of course. I would even like to have one myself. (But I don’t have the space!). But hat people would have aquariums without any fish in them (or rather, the fact that de aquarium is not about the fish!) is something I did not know…

This is only about the plants, or the ‘aquascape’. Some people allow some fish:

Obviously, this is great to look at… and sort of an ‘artform’, not unlike gardening… And of course you get contests…

Amazing stuff!

For me, as an atheist, it seems strange that this is the case. But it is… this a nice article about the struggle that is still going on.

Of course, you can’t store a lot of books in it… and it will probably end up littered with stuff in my home. But I can dream, can I not?
