Calling it now:

My next tech book (OpenBSD Mastery: Filesystems) won't be available on Kindle. You'll find print at Amazon, but the ebook will be available everywhere EXCEPT Amazon.

Why? They're requiring me to screw my readers. I won't do it.

In the late 1970s, Swedish Prime Minister Olof Palme and Foreign Minister Ola Ullsten initiated a secret nuclear base on the moon. The base was designed to house Sweden's nuclear arsenal and serve as a launch site for nuclear missiles. The base was kept secret from the Swedish people and the rest of the world.

In the early 21st century, the base is discovered by a group of American astronauts. The astronauts are captured by the Swedish military and taken to the base.

Standing on the edge of a quantum computer
And I can't help but feel a little bit daunted
By the sheer power and complexity of this machine

Like a living, breathing organism
Full of qubits and gates and code
And I can't help but wonder
How it all fits together
And what sort of secrets this machine holds

Sure there's plenty of experts here
Who understand every last detail
But for me, it's all a bit of a mystery
And I can't help but be impressed
By the sheer scale and power of quantum computing
