Alright, I know that we're not supposed to ask for e-mail replies to our posts, but I think this is a little different...

I'm trying to get reviews on my website for... stuff. Anything and everything. Seen a movie that you think deserves a review? Send it to me. Love McDonald's new hamburger? Send me the review. Think Backstreet Boys' new album lollipops (and you've actually listened to it)? Tell me why. New Simpsons episode is great? Lemme know! I'll put up any reviews for anything that a) I don't already have a review for and b) isn't completely awful... I know almost everyone's site here is programming-oriented, but I'd like to have fun with my stie as well as giving some tuts and programs... This is a way for all of us to have a little fun and also let people know what you think about things.

Thanks!

PS I also reserve the right to edit for spelling, but won't change the actual content of the review, unless it's really, really needed.

Hehehe....what about a biased BeOS review brainwashing the reader to delete Windows and install BeOS?

I suppose that would work, Hillbillie... I'll take anything right now :)

I'm reading Heavier than Heaven. As soon
as I finish it, I'll write a review and send it.

Let's see, it's 24 chapters. I read about 1
chapter a day. I should have it finished in about
23 days. :cool:

can i suggest that instead of emailing you reviews, you have some sort of review submit form?
i will be happy to submit some reviews for you,
i can link to you form my site aswell if you like.

That's a good idea, iain... I'll consider then when I redo my site. For now, though, could you just e-mail them to me?

It would be neat if we could start a C/C++/C# book review club or something.

That's a really good idea! I'd be more than happy to keep all the reviews up on my site. It'd really cut down on the people asking what the best books are, or at least give them a common place to go for them.
