Good afternoon from a new member

Sun, 25 Jun 2017 11:49:16 GMT

Hi all - looks like a great site. Having just finished the first of a series of novels, I'm now commencing the journey of ebook publishing and getting to grips with Cailbre and Sigil. Despite some background in IT, I have little doubt I'll be needing to post some questions soon. Slàinte

New Member, mostly ADE and Kobo, sometimes Kindle....

Sun, 25 Jun 2017 05:06:44 GMT

Hi, I stumbled across this site looking for solutions to several annoying problems, which I will post in the appropriate (I hope) places. I have several thousand books that I keep organized by author and/or series in ADE (currently 3.0). They are an assortment of Adobe Secure epubs and DRM-free epubs from various sources, pdfs, and library books (Overdrive). I mostly read from ADE on my computer or copy books to one of two Kobo readers (a Mini and a Glo) as needed. Kobo, ADE and Overdrive do not always play well together. I also have a really cheap refurbished Kindle for a few books I can't get anywhere but Amazon.

Why should an android timer need net access?

Sat, 24 Jun 2017 21:27:29 GMT

I was just looking for a simple timer - I was making cookies and wanted another timer in addition to the manual kitchen timer on the stove. Everything I looked at wanted Network access, and most of them wanted lots more permissions. Is there a real reason why a simple timer needs net access? I can maybe understand wanting to prevent the phone from going to sleep, but why, other than advertising, would a timer need to access anything other than the phone's clock? Anyone got a favorite android timer (for an old phone, android 4.1.2)?

Thoughts on off topic posts

Thu, 22 Jun 2017 14:49:25 GMT

How do you feel about off topic posts? I realize it is going to happen, but it seems (to me) that it happens too often, and that some members continually go off topic without a second thought. I had some quick pms with a mod, and he said to report the posts, as it is the way to gauge whether the forum wants off topic posts. But I don't want to bother the Mods that often. I would just assume mods took a pro-active role in off topic posts. Reading the guidelines, it doesn't appear that going off-topic is even discouraged, unless the OP objects.

:book2: I'm new to the Mobileread community, and I already see there are a lot of great resources here. I've gotten a lot of good use out of Calibre, and will enjoy getting the most out of this application and its many features.

Discovering new (or old) music

Wed, 21 Jun 2017 07:18:20 GMT

I spend a lot of time listening to music and I've discovered some great new artists or even one-song-wonders in the last couple of months. I keep sharing new music with friends so why not share links to new music here? I rarely do youtube... I prefer Apple Music; its especially fun to listen to an artist or song, fall in love and then go check them out on Google. I remember listening to two songs by Rory Graham (better known as Rag 'N Bone Man)... and I had this visual in my head about an elderly man with years of whiskey in his voice. Imagine my surprise when he turned out to be this young, tall, broad, white guy (I'm not rascist. Don't flame me. If there's a politically correct word just tell me what it is and I'll try and use it next time.) with tattoos on his face! So, here's my current favs: For Floyd lovers, check out this song called *Again* from *Archive*. Its a long track but they've got the entire gamut from Barrett, Waters to Gilmour in that one track. I'm in love! If you listen to *Rag 'N Bone Man*, first listen to *Human* (a sort of electronica track with a lovely bass groove) and then follow it up with *St. James*, a blues track. I still can't believe its the same artist. :eek: Another track I really loved was *Play Dead* by *Tom Walker*. An old song called *Electric Memphis Blues* by *Chris Rea*, *Who Says* by *John Mayer* and *Mountain Climbing* by *Joe Bonamassa*. I haven't given any links since I'm sure everyone prefers to listen to music on the service of their choice. It would be nice to keep this thread going... I for one am always grateful to people who introduce me to new music!

New to Kobo & KOReader

Tue, 20 Jun 2017 14:24:47 GMT

Hello everyone, got a Kobo Aura One last night and managed to get KOReader installed on it and a bunch of PDFs copied over… just don't ask me to do it again because I have no idea how I did it. Using a Mac. Is there a "dumb beginner questions" forum around here?
