Clearly it’s a choice — you can’t mention everyone, and they did get into how the 2600 could only be pushed so far. But what the rival machines were able to do at the same time was an important element of the late era first-wave console wars. (And, er, the names of the machines!)

Didn’t think you could do a retelling of the video-game wars of the late 1970s-early 1980s without Intellivision or Colecovision being mentioned by name, but the documentary on Channel just did. Next up: a Cola Wars documentary about Coke versus nobody-in-particular.

A sensible and healthy response. I hadn’t gone back to the track or an OTB in years until a few weeks ago; first bet placed I hit the exacta. I said immediately, “Oh, this could be bad,” collected my winnings and left after the next race. Wrong lessons abound at the track/table.

Which makes sense. (Obviously SW decided the other way with Maul.) My rule of thumb: print is generally consumed by groups numbering in tens and sometimes hundreds of thousands; TV by millions and sometimes tens of millions; and movies by tens and sometimes hundreds of millions.

My guess is it's down to around 100k and change at the end.

No, because Capital City in 1985 represented only around 8% of Marvel sales. Remember, they had newsstand sales and subscriptions still, and the DM distributors were still new. That 8% figure is in a table in one of the prologue chapters.

It was still my concept and has all my past research, but I contributed nothing new to it so the sales data is as of what I had in 2005. I'm guessing the database blew a fuse in outputting titles for the PDF and missed the title. That happened sometimes.

Capital City orders on Dark Empire: 1: 46,550 2: 30,725 3: 36,650 4: 41,700 5: 38,775 6: 37,900 All for first editons. Cap City likely 20-25% of overall sales in that era for that publisher.

Fourth edition, the bound one? Page 1281. If you're talking about the PDF-only version that came out after that, it's after my time. I had nothing to do with it.

Office's random changes baffle me. Their removal of the "paste values" button as an option from Excel after two decades has driven me up the wall.

It's been theorized that the park stores bought a large number of copies from Diamond.

Retweeting as this came to my attention when it was well after midnight last night. (Fortunately the ship's computer roused me from cryosleep!)
