Players must balance supply and demand of these elements, buying what they need, and selling what they don't. Players may also exploit or create shortages by refusing to sell to other players or to the "store," which raises the price of the resource on the following turns. Scheming between players is encouraged by allowing collusion, which initiates a mode allowing a private transaction.

I took Silent Echo as well. It was the only one that interested me even slightly.

Sure seems like that, doesn't it?

Of course, people jumping on the bandwagon means all such efforts will be diluted (to put it mildly), I was amused to see the number of books on "Kindle Countdown" grow from under a hundred the first day I looked, to eight hundred or so the next day, and well over 3k the day after that (now over 4k).

Alpha 4 for DOS anyone?

yes, I have to maintain a network that uses it, complete with DOS only printers...

I did finally force them to stop using PFS Write (is that the one? or maybe PC Write - anyway, an old DOS pgm with a proprietary save file that was compatible with nearly nothing and a pain to translate everytime they sent me a file).

Of course, if old WordPerfect (pre-Novell and definitely before being destroyed by Corel) still worked, I'd still be using it.

I agree. I applaud it, actually. No reason to upgrade --or change paradigms--just for the sake of doing so.

But there is one huge caveat: You need to be PREPARED to change and upgrade when that old system finally dies. Don't leave your business processes in limbo when you can't readily find replacement hardware, or support for long-defunct software.

None of which is available to the UK store (I guess the same applies to all the others non-US stores as well) I would dearly like to have Matchbook.

Wait a while.
Amazon debugs new features/services in the US first before taking them international. It's safer.

No guarantee things will ever be available on non-US stores though. Active content on the e-ink Kindles for instance never made it to the UK. Prime is also different here (and not really worth the £50/year they want for it IMHO)
