I was actually thinking about that recently. People spent the last decade crying over the price of music CDs... now ebooks cost basically the same as hard copies... where is the outrage???

Agreed. Though I am going to e-publish...

Yeah some companies price ebooks really well, about half or just over, if I see anyone do it full price I know they are being greey buggers and have no problem getting the file through other means...

I don't care much for rank either though I did check how long it will take me to reach Rear Admiral. Sometime in the 2020's....

:D *Random crewman*, "Is it too late to get a transfer?" :D

By the way, as a Commander you could be in command of a destroyer type ship. Also, could be 2IC or XO and thus have plenty of authority to throw people in the brig.

Not much of a chart as looking at post counts and fighting where the 'promotions' are at and then figuring how long it will take for me to get there based on the average I post each day.
