Fellow neat freak parents - tips for negotiating this more successfully? [more inside]
I've never read any Neil Gaiman or Terry Pratchett, but am now in the middle of Good Omens and really enjoying it. An attempt years ago to get into the first of the Discworld series failed early (I'm generally a lukewarm fantasy fan at best), but for some reason, this hits the spot - what other titles from either of them should I try next?
Fellow 40/50-something aging punks, indie rockers, etc.: what books do you think best capture the feel of the 80s / early 90s, pre-internet underground(s)? Fiction + non-fiction - novels, forgotten but still vital journalism of the era, music biographies, etc. - are both of interest.

My partner is addicted to "The Moth Radio Hour", and I'd like to get her an MP3 player and load it up with older episodes. What is the simplest and cheapest way that I can get a pile of them all at once? I'm digging around, but not having any luck coming up with a good solution so far.
Thanks to MeFi, I recently read Benjamin Rosenbaum's short story "Feature Development for Social Networking" - please recommend me some other high quality horror / supernatural fiction in which the Web plays a central role.

I received an email asking me to confirm a textie.me account that I did not create. It *appears* to be legitimate, and the confirmation link does look to actually direct to textie (I did not click on it). What kind of scam / ID theft issue do I need to be mitigating here, if any?

I need a moderately priced, durable MP3 player that I can dump selected tracks / podcasts from my Banshee library into for my commute. Ideally, I'd like to spend less than $100.
