Introducing myself from Belgium

Sun, 23 Oct 2016 10:50:51 GMT

Hello, I am new to forums in general and it is about 1 hour that I try to use this forum. I managed to subscribe to the Calibre forum which is the reason I registered at mobile read. but I cannot see how to get on a "home" page the forum I subscribed to and how to post a question on that forum. I go through the FAQ but it does not help me much. Is there a tutorial somewhere explaining how to this ? I feed this principle of forum absolutely great and the only forum I ever posted was the microsoft community which was very helpful. thanks,

How to use a spellcheck dictionary for italicizing

Wed, 19 Oct 2016 01:26:18 GMT

In Sigil, Preferences>Spellcheck Dictionaries, I have added a dictionary called "Sanskrit" by selecting "Add" and pasting the words from a .txt file. Since these words exist in the various .xhtml files, now I would like to italicize them. How to do it? Could the said dictionary file be used to find and italicize the words?

Apple certainly weighs on us all.

Many of us use Apple for eReading, for time telling, for computing (I eRead mostly on the computer myself), and *CARS?* Some news on the CARs front. " Apple Car’s Failure Looks Like a Bad Sign for Apple. It Isn’t." I usually get the older cars of the family while my better half drives the latest and greatest, but this is of interest because it appears that there is no Apple Car on her horizon.

Obligations & Trust

Tue, 18 Oct 2016 14:26:24 GMT

Have you ever considered how Trust between a Buyer and Seller, is generally only one way, and what that really means? The way I see it, unless you are being given something for free, then the seller has certain obligations, especially if you are doing them the favor of giving them money and perhaps promoting to others. So in reality there is an imbalance occurring, especially when sellers don't meet their obligations, both written and unwritten. I'm not saying that a buyer doesn't benefit. Mostly they do, but not always, and really the buyer is the only one generally who has to extend trust. Trust that the purchase arrives, trust it is as specified, trust it is in good condition and will last a decent amount of time, trust it is legitimate, trust they are being charged a fair price ... and so on and so on. Without Buyers, Sellers, even intermediary ones like Amazon and other stores, would be nothing ... wouldn't even exist. So yes, from my perspective for sure, at the very least, there is certainly an obligation to the customer. The obligation is not a one way street though and neither should the trust be. Buyers Unite!

Greetings from Warsaw :wacky: I have started reading ebooks on my first iPad long time ago. But even with night mode on, I got headache after a dozen of pages :brood: To much light... One of my friends was ebook early adopter and he got first two or three e-readers. But they were not very good or convenient. It was my first Kindle Paperwhite, that was "it" :thumbsup: I needed something bigger, so I have bought Kobo Aura H2O as soon it was available on the market (I LOVE global village :love:), now I am temporarily using Kindle Voyage, I got for my husband, because he almost drowned it :shocked2: I will get Kobo Aura One soon :D I'm using Calibre to manage my library. I read a lot, mostly fantasy and SF :vulcan:, but not only. What I also love in XXI century, is that people devote their time and skills to improve products on the market. I have flashed my router with such software and my camera as well. I have installed KOReader on H2O, because it has features, my husband whined about :rolleyes2: I have been reading this forum for a while and finally decided to register :beam: who knows, maybe I could contribute somehow and stop being a parasite :smug2:

For the last 2 days I have read nothing but this site. I found it in a response from google for info about the new Kobo Aura One. I have had a Sony PRS650 since 2010, and when it became apparent that the battery was dying, I organised to have the battery replaced, but because it was taking so long to happen, I started to investigate the new Aura One. This site has opened up a complete new planet for me with devices, words, ideas and how to do things that I didn't know existed. Being an old girl with no computer skills whatsoever,(I get by just doing what I know and that's pretty much how to buy from Kobo, download to Sony book library then transfer to my Reader). Oh, and Facebook. And navigate my iPad. Thank you very much for accepting me to your site. Clare. P.S. I hope to do a 400km round trip tomorrow to collect my Aura One, if it arrives in store.:)

Hello from Greece!

Fri, 14 Oct 2016 10:30:06 GMT

Or in greek-lish Kalispera. I've been a long time Calibre user and apparently had a forum account but today is my first post. Nice to "read" you guys


Thu, 13 Oct 2016 13:22:02 GMT

Hi, I'm Moony, I'm Italian, and honestly I didn't see whether introducing yourself was mandatory and if there was a recommended list of info to provide. There's not really much to say about me except that I like books, particularly fantasy/scifi. I read on a Kobo Aura HD and sometimes I like it a lot and sometimes I don't. Digital certainly made my life easier, though. (I don't have any more space for physical books in my house :p)

Seriousness WiFi Question

Wed, 12 Oct 2016 19:19:12 GMT

Paging PC gurus, Dennis, Kat... How could I tell if someone was stealing my internet? My internet has been slower than molasses these past few weeks. It should be 100mbps when it's under 30mbps. Each time I reboot the modem and Router the speed comes back. Streaming live events has become near impossible. Although YouTube works fine.:blink: I downloaded an app on tablet that shows connected devices. All I recognize. Could someone be on without being listed? My passcode is a joke. My ISP is the one set the passcode and told me not to change it. I am tempted to changed it just to see if my theory is correct. I suspect a neighbor piggybacking me. Any help or advice is appreciated.
