Friendly banter and discussions unrelated to e-books

Bonjour!

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 16:26:00 GMT

Hi Everyone! I am new on this forum, but it is quite some time I have started using a e-reader. I wanted one when I started studying litterature because most of the book I needed to read where part of public domain (hence free, and me being a student, it is quite a big advantage.) Since then I have started to use it more and more to read absolutely everything. Because I am moving a lot and reading a lot, I think my reader became one of my favorite possession. Other than reading, I love writing, playing video games, traveling, movies, TV shows, fighting sports, drawings, and I am curious about many other thing. Glad to meet you all!



Hello Hola from Argentina

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 15:04:02 GMT

Hola, soy de Argentina. Leo en ereaders desde 2011 o 2012, cuando todo lo que conocía era el Grammata 6.2 (El papyre rojo), luego lo vendí y me compré el Papyre 623 (Uno azul), el primero que tuve con Android, con Foxit Reader y pinch to zoom todavía es una genialidad. Luego me compré el Papyre (de grammata también) 624ml (con luz), que en realidad es mi primer Onyx podríamos decir.... Y hoy, hace poco, el Onyx Boox N96ml carta+. Un maquinón con el cual no podría estar más contento. Mi idea es reemplazar gradualmente mi ordenador con un ereader definitivamente. Hoy lo he logrado en un 70 a 80 % con el último que tengo. Leo escribo en él (compré un teclado con mousepad inalámbrico) y a las ediciones finales las hago en la computadora. Espero ser de utilidad a la comunidad y participar en este mundo del ereader! Hi, I am from Argentina. I read in ereaders since 2011 o 2012, when everything i knew was the Grammata 6.2 (a red device called papyre), then I sold it and bought the Papyre 623 (a blue one), the first with android, when Foxit reader and pinch to zoom, still is great. Then I bought the Papyre 624ml (with moonlight), that in reality is my first onyx.... And today, recently, i bought the Onyx Boox N96ml carta +. A beast. I wish to replace little by little the PC for an Ereader. Today I could say that I manage that in a 70 o 80%. I read and write in the Onyx (using a bluetooth keyboard with mousepad) and finish the papers in the PC. I hope to be of some use in this community and participate in this ereader world.



Remix OS Android on PC

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 17:54:57 GMT

Remix OS (http://www.jide.com/remixos) ---Quote--- Remix OS is a now-discontinued computer operating system for personal computers with x86 and ARM architectures that, prior to discontinuation of development, shipped with a number of 1st- and 3rd-party devices. Remix OS allowed PC users to run Android mobile apps on any compatible Intel-based PC. ---End Quote--- I test this OS on my comuter, and I really like it. I have now dual boot, Windows 7 and Remix OS. Pros: 1. Play store, all app works. 2. Android Marshmallow. 3. Multi-Windows, apps working in parallel. 4. Games working with keyboard, with key mapping. 5. Desktop look, remind me of Windows 7/10. 6. Easy installment. 7. Free. Cons: 1. It's bugy. Install time 10-20 min, depnding by the partition you choose 8gb, 16gb or 32gb. Boot time 3 min.



DNA Tests?

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 02:09:24 GMT

Who else has done this? I tested with 23 and me. I only got the Ancestry part of 23 and me but uploaded my raw data to Gedmatch and tried the eye color predictor. Gedmatch. It's pretty accurate. No. The closer up picture is not my eye. It's the predicted color. They could tell this from my spit.

Sell Kobo Glo HD with a bad USB port

Fri, 13 Oct 2017 17:30:07 GMT

I have a Kobo Glo HD with a bad USB port (got is 'fixed' on vacation, but they only fixed the charging pins, not the data pins, so it charges but can't connect to a computer over USB). Would be useful to someone with a broken screen (swap your good board into this one), or a solder wizard who thinks they can fix the USB fully. $15 + shipping from Ontario, Canada. Pic is of the bodge on the port if you want to try and fix, although it doesn't matter if you're looking to repair your broken-screen Glo HD.

Greetings from 'the great white north' :)

Thu, 12 Oct 2017 21:51:25 GMT

Greetings and good morrow folks! My name is Deb and I am a dog trainer by profession and live in the balmy climes of Regina, Saskatchewan (Canada). Actually, we are pretty balmy at the moment :) but Winter is Coming. My personal reading genres are Fantasy, Science Fiction (Do NOT mix them together :)), Historical and Romances. I am here, however, to find good books for my grandmother (who will be 96 in December!!). Her vision is horrid but I got her an ebook reader so she can still read. I sent my husband off looking for books and he got her TONNES of romances. I am now looking for something less focused on romance. I did get her the Girl of the Limberlost, Anne of Green Gables and some of the classics (Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austin and such) so I am on a quest. No 'smut', little cursing and a good story is what she likes. I welcome suggestions (please!). Thank you for letting me join your community :) With a smile, Deb



Sell Fire HD 8.9” 2nd Generation with micro HDMI port

Bought this refurbished from Amazon in April of 2014. It is running the Fire OS 8.5.1. It has 16gb of storage, Dolby audio, dual band WiFi. The device works fine, it has no problems at all. Included is a RooCase prop type black leather-look case, a micro HDMI 6’ cable, and the box it was shipped in. I don’t have a usb charger or cable to ship with this device, it will be fully charged when I ship it. $50 ships for free to US address using USPS. I have a Paypal account. No brand new members please.



Sell Fire HD 10” 5th Generation

Thu, 12 Oct 2017 17:00:45 GMT

I bought this refurbished a year ago. It’s in great shape, and has hardly been used. It does have special offers, and is running Fire OS 5.4.0.1 and has 16gb of storage. I don’t have a cover or case for this, it was only used in my kitchen for Netflix and Prime, so I never bought a cover. 5W Charger and cable included, also the original Amazon box it came in. $60 will ship free to US addresses using USPS once the payment has cleared. I have a PayPal Account. No brand new members please.



Hello, and thank you!

Wed, 11 Oct 2017 21:40:41 GMT

Hi everyone! I figured I should formally introduce myself after lurking for so long. I'm Ayden and a big Kindle fan. I recently started playing with hacks for my Kindle 8, and the developer forum has been a big help. I look forward to being more active!

Hi everyone

Hi everyone. I look forward to meeting all of you. Since I am passionate about collecting ebooks, I hope to find many of them here too.
