so, some of you out there may have heard this already. for those of you who read my lj and follow the Wheel of Time series and haven't heard yet, the final book has been declared too long and the publisher will be splitting it into a trilogy.
the official press release and the author's comments on his blog are available to help explain why.
i feel the need to share
for those of you unable to read the hover-text: "The moment their arms spun freely in our air, they were doomed -- for Man has earned his right to hold this planet against all comers, by virtue of occasionally producing someone totally batshit insane."
i think i've got it to a point that i like. i'm still not real happy with that education part, but i can't figure out how to make it better. i only had passing grades for about two semesters (about 1 year). so, my academic record isn't that great. so, here are the two options i've got at the moment:
Passing this on from several sources (primarily leora who used to volunteer for LJ support). Her comments on this issue are here, here, and here. Comments from Advisory Board Members are here and here.
I got the following response from wanderingpixie and penumbren. I expect to see leora post about it soon.

so, i have the new job at pitt. i got my ID last night. now i have a december bus pass i don't need and a november bus pass that i don't need and will be valid for another week or so. i'm looking to sell the december bus pass, if i don't hear anything here by this weekend, i'll probably post to craigslist or something.
while i was working for the county, i got a monthly bus pass taken out of my pay pre-tax. unfortunately, this meant that it had to come out several weeks before i received my pass (first pay period of the previous month). so, this means that my bus pass was paid for on november 14
so, normally, PAT bus passes cost $60.00. since i had it taken out pre-tax, i technically paid a little less. i'm willing to sell it for around $50.00. if you are interested, please comment on this post. thank you.
