About My Library


The best thing I've ever read about love is the lead essay in Anne Fadiman's Ex Libris: Confessions of a Common Reader. It's all about the fact that passion is a fine thing, but you know you're really in it for the long haul on the day you finally combine libraries. We started to mix when we realized we'd never keep track of whose books lived on which shelf, but we didn't go whole hog until we got the Cuecat.

The LT account is in my name because I'm the house dork by a very slim margin, but the books here are all utterly ours. Except for the really weird stuff. Ask the spouse about those...

Interests include comics, cookbooks, code, swords.

A few starting points:
* Our gang: Graphic Novel Book Group selections.
* Books that make me go "huh": Included In The Present Classification.
* About the screen name: Thwack!.

Releases:
1.) Release to Copy/Repost - Please feel free to quote any of my comments, talk posts, wiki contributions, etc.
2.) Release to Contact Me - in my comments on this page regarding any errors you find in my Library (Combiners - THIS MEANS YOU!). Feel free also to contact me via comments if you disagree with any combining/separating I have done on LT, or any Common Knowledge contributions I've made.
About Me
Equal parts book geek and geek geek. Luckily for me, by day I get to mess around with the computers in a damned fine library. By night, I'm an information science grad student. But if I said any more I'd have to kill you...

Tag combining minimalist, work combining maximalist.

Profile pic is an actual photo. No, really.

Please note: I've suspended work on the combiners' Greasemonkey script -- the old version shouldn't do any harm, but please disable it if you're having trouble. If you want to work on something similar for new-style work pages, I'd be happy to bounce ideas around, but I'm not currently planning to do it myself, as the distinction between (new) works and debris pages has changed my workflow too much.

Either way, I'm glad I learned a bit about GM. It's a fun system to play with, and if you're new to it, there are a ton of examples at userscripts.org.
