Good book series, and random stuff

First, a good sci-fi series I got recommended by another Ansibilian...and subsequently got hooked on, even if the first book is written in a first-person style that feels weird. (The subsequent books are written in third person.)

Series is Spinward Fringe by Randolph Lalonde. Turns out the first book, Broadcast 0, Origins, is available on Smashwords for free in all ebook reader formats. I was going to post the Amazon link, but free is better.

Otherwise: Still have not moved to Win 8 or the new comp. It was supposed to happen this weekend, but not yet.

Getting a new mouse tomorrow, the old one has finally bitten the dust and stopped working regardless of which USB port it gets plugged into, at least not for more than 5 minutes.

Randomly: Why does trying to link to stuff in this post break (IE, instead of the link box, I get a white box I can't close) in IE, but not in Chrome or Firefox? I don't even know where to submit this bug or how.
