Now this is very exciting: A new Flashman book!

n this chapter of his eventful and disreputable life, Sir Harry Flashman is caught up in one of the footnotes of the imperial age. Fleeing from Trieste and an enraged German whose teenage niece he has deflowered, he arrives in 1868 in Abys-sinia, where a mercurial local chieftain is holding a group of British emissaries hostage. A rescue mission is under way and Flashman, never a willing volunteer for such a sortie, has the simple task of delivering funds to buy off rival despots. Not for the first time, however, his "audacious" reputation precedes him, and it isn't long before the commanding British officer has found a role for him in Kipling's Great Game.

Dang, but Ars technica publishes the best technical articles going. This History of the GUI is a case in point, and could be the last word on the subject (at least for the early history). Last week's review of OS X Tiger was also great reading
