It the movie

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 05:11:46 GMT

I went to see It Saturday night. I was ready to walk out before the movie was halfway through. I was bored. When I read a Stephen King book I can feel the suspense, the horror, the thrill. It consumes me full in mind, body and spirit. I can feel terror. No I am not scared but I can feel what the characters are feeling. Or at least I did when I read It back in 87. I have seen either the television version or the original It movie. I think these were a lot better than the current version. Not one did anyone scream in the theater. I feel I wasted $8.5 for the movie ticket and $4 for popcorn. Not to mention the time to watch the movie. Anyone else watch the movie? If so what is your opinion.



Why does Firefox keep getting set to Non-default?

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 04:25:09 GMT

Argg. minor annoyance. Every day, I keep getting a pop-up that Firefox is not currently the default browser. Every Day I set it to be the default. Next day it's back. My google-fu appears to be insufficient to find the reason why it keeps getting set to other wise. I'm not finding any local messages that say the default changed. I've never installed another browser, but I assume that MS has IE installed somewhere - but it's not on my desktop or start menu. Firefox version 55.0.3 (64 bit) on Win7. Anyone have better info? Anyone have an entertaining theory?



Silliness How a student outsmarted their teacher

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 21:31:20 GMT

\Student outsmarts teacher (https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation-now/2017/09/22/how-one-student-outsmarted-her-teacher-able-use-tons-notes-test/694167001/) ---Quote--- First test day of the semester and as always, I allow a 3x5 notecard. Today, a student shows up with this. Sure enough, it is 3x5... feet. As precise as I am, apparently I never specified inches and therefore yes, it was allowed. Well played and lesson learned for me ---End Quote--- Image: https://scontent-ort2-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-0/q82/p526x296/21752032_10214627024858104_6466392482623698094_n.jpg?oh=c336089cecb02a0429e9b7075812415a&oe=5A54D728 Well played. :rofl:

Seriousness How big is your calibre library?

Wed, 13 Sep 2017 03:13:37 GMT

I've been in a few threads where people have 30-100k books in their Calibre libraries, some even 1Mil! I only have 4,000 or so. I only started reading ebooks in 2012 when my ex bought me a Nook Color as a going away present...we were friends and I was leaving town to move to Pittsburgh. Eh hem. Anyway, I would like to know the size of your library. How and where did you get so many books?
