    You know, you really have quite a few spoilers in this thread. I think I found the one you were talking about though, and that would actually be an interesting thought if it is intended...

    Stormlight books about once every 18 months

    That's a relief, hopefully it doesn't wind up being too far off schedule.

    I agree that they needed an introduction, I am just not sure that it needed to be 1000 pages long.

    Now, there is something interesting at the end of WoR:

    And also for those who have finished WoR I think you'll enjoy these:

    Yes, Mistborn being a trilogy definitely helped in that aspect. I am looking forward to the future books in the world coming out, but in some ways I hope that they don't continue to have Wax and Wayne as the main duo (the character development in Alloy of Law didn't feel that great to me, it was more like they were falling into old habits instead of progressing).

    The problem I had with The Way of Kings was that I was trying too hard to compare it with Mistborn, and the amount of progression being made in the first book was fairly slow going. I thought Words of Radiance fixed that problem very nicely. I do agree, I can't wait for the next book to come out. I a, just hoping it isn't another 4 years...

    Just finished Words of Radiance (Sanderson) last night. It was significantly better than the first in the series (which I was really happy for). This one almost was as good as Mistborn (though Mistborn I felt did better at getting an emotional connection to the characters).

    No problem. I love JavaScript so it isn't anything terribly difficult. The hardest part is to come up with challenges that will get people interested and not scare everyone away until we at least are a bit more known :)

    I think there are a few people who like IE, but we are the minority. I use it because I have grown up with it, it acts the most as I would expect it to (out of the major browsers) and I have grown accustom to its little quirks. Everyone talks about building things for FF then hacking for IE, but I find that Opera, IE, Chrome, and Sarafi normally work very close to the same, and FF is the outlier.

    Serious Question(s): Are you the only user who prefers IE over all of the other browsers? I haven't seen anyone else with that marked...
    Also, why do you prefer it?
