Link roundup

1. Received this email from Barnes and Noble:

The weekend of Aug 20-21st, we experienced a technical error related to HP TouchPad inventory & unprecedented product demand resulting in some order cancellations. We worked with leading payment companies to reverse any related pending credit or debit authorizations. We accept full responsibility for this error & deeply regret any inconvenience to our valued customers.
Sorry if you tried and failed to buy one after I posted about it.

2. Speaking of deals, Golden Apple in Los Angeles is offering all of DC's 52 #1s for $100 plus tax.

3. Detailed tips for the aspiring professional animation artist. (Including good teachers listed by name.) Via.

4. I just finished reading League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Century 1969. I'd be lost without annotations - - I'd never even heard of Brian Jones. (At least I understood that the guy in the park was Voldemort.)

5. Bejewled 2 is free today at iTunes.
