A former Silicon Valley tech dinosaur here, to say hello!

Tue, 25 Apr 2017 06:13:51 GMT

You'd never know that once upon a time, I was a senior marketing analyst in the tech-hub of the world (well, one of them!) I am now a self-proclaimed tech-dinosaur that can barely figure out how to use this forum. [*self-promotion deleted*] At any rate, hello to all and peace to the world. MomAuthor

Goodbye Old Friend

Tue, 25 Apr 2017 04:23:29 GMT

Basking Ridge, NJ, is a few miles south of where I grew up and a few miles north of where I live now. I think that most folks in the area know about the town's "old oak tree." The Basking Ridge white oak tree is estimated to be about 600 years old. After years of decline it was declared unsavable by experts last fall. Last summer's weather -- an extremely hot, dry spell, followed by drenching rains -- waterlogged the roots and dealt the final blow. Removal started today. There are plenty of mentions at Google and Youtube -- just search for "Basking Ridge NJ Oak Tree." 3oJ6GYFbUSo

Let Me Introduce Myself

Mon, 24 Apr 2017 16:35:03 GMT

Hello All! I love to read! I had a Nook way back when, then moved to reading on an iPad, which I've done for several years. I finally realized that I'm not happy if I can't take my book outside with me and enjoy it with a nice cup of coffee or tea, so I'm jumping back into the eInk world. I ordered the Kobo Aura One! I can hardly wait for it to arrive! Happy Reading!

Shakespeare Dictionary

Sun, 23 Apr 2017 13:08:45 GMT

Hello, I am a new member and look forward to learning more about mobi reading. I have a Paperwhite which I love. It has the capability of switching dictionaries and I have written a glossary for use when reading Shakespeare. I took some old glossaries and using mobi pocket creator and calibre turned them into a book that can be loaded into the paper white and selected as the dictionary. I would like to share this for free with anyone interested. If anyone can advise me the best way to do this I would be grateful.

How does the KARMA system work, as far as giving KARMA?

Wed, 19 Apr 2017 12:04:30 GMT

I wanted to give someone KARMA for a helpful post, so I clicked on the button and it was setting at 2, the default I guess. I upped it to 10. I am just wondering if KARMA works on a 1 to 10 scale with 10 being the best, as would seem logical, or if I accidentally didn't give much of a good rating? Thanks:)

Hi everybody - My name is John P. and I live in Miami, OK - I read on my Nook HD and/or my Samsung Galaxy Nook. Although I do have a Kindle Fire, I prefer the Nook hands down. ;)

Just saying Hi from Chester, UK

Tue, 18 Apr 2017 16:13:56 GMT

Just a quick Hi, long time reader here, but never posted. Am a big big fan of digital books, and gave up on analogue ones years ago... Have owned the Kindle Keyboard, Kindle, PWv1, Voyage, Oasis but recently jumped over to a Kobo Aura One. My kids and partner inherited the others as hand-me-downs ;-) Well, that's it really! Want to try to contribute more, so got to start somewhere, thanks for having me!! :D

Book sniffing somewhere in Bucks......

Tue, 18 Apr 2017 15:53:46 GMT

Greetings and hello from Buckinghamshire, UK. I have a Kindle Voyager which I absolutely love and I also use the Kindle app on my IPhone but, as stated, I do sniff books. Nothing beats the smell of an old book, it's beautiful. I love being able to finish a book at 3am some nights and get the next book, if there is one, within minutes. An utter revelation and pure genius if you ask me! I also love finding websites that offer ebooks for free or on offer. The classics are free which is wonderful, I fall in love with my Kindle more everyday. Can anyone tell me who invented the ereader? Links to discounted ebooks are most welcome. I enjoy reading history, fact and fiction and mostly Medieval. Some fantasy, horror, true crime, biographies and similar. I like being recommended new books and authors, especially something I would normally never read. That's it for now, this is getting a tad long! I hope to speak with some of you soon. X

Seriousness My family not having a good month

Tue, 18 Apr 2017 14:30:41 GMT

My mom is dealing with a bunch of health troubles at present. She was having pain in her side and went in to get it checked. After doing a CT scan they said it was diverticulitis and prescribed antibiotics and pain meds. Along the way when the did the scan they found she has a mass in one of her lungs. So now they need to do a biopsy and she will have to meet with an oncologist. She started smoking at age 16 and will be 74 next month so she has been a smoker for 58 yrs. She hasn't had a cigarette since the 9th of April (needless to say she hasn't always been easy to live with these last 10 days). Anyway she goes back in tomorrow. It's going to be a long rest of the month I think.

Silliness For Corvette lovers

Sun, 16 Apr 2017 19:36:15 GMT

For those into Corvettes, this might be of interest. I came across these UK magazine test times. I think they show what a showroom car can do. Since they were export cars, it's unlikely they were enhanced for magazine testing .;) '82 TBI 350 ( 1968 L68 427 4 speed 0-60 6.1 seconds top speed 145 mph (Motor) 1984 TBI Automatic 0-60 7 seconds top speed 139 mph (Motor) 1984 TBI Automatic 0-60 7.2 seconds top speed 138 mph (Fast Lane) 1984 TBI Automatic 0-60 6.6 seconds top speed 142 mph (Autocar) 1986 TPI Stick 0-60 6 seconds top speed 151 mph (Autocar) 1989 ZR-1 (380 hp) 0-60 5.6 seconds (Autocar) 1992 LT1 Automatic 0-60 5.8 seconds top speed 162 mph (Performance Car) The LT1 car did a 14.3 second 1/4 mile at 100 mph in wintery conditions.
