Troubleshooting Registration of classic Kindle is disabled on purpose by Amazon?

You all might know now that Gen 1-2 Kindle which is 3G only is now unable to de-register. Factory reset will de-register this from the device but the device will not be able to register again: Rendering the classic device semi-bricked (unable to register, buy books, connect to internet, and create collections). Some people never though that the move is by intention and won't believe that it is for the benefit of Amazon because Amazon over and over again said they are not making profit by sellin...

Informing Creators of Errors

What is the proceedure for reporting errors I find while reading a book downloaded from mobileread? Should I mention them in the thread where the file is, or should I pm the creator? Are creators bothered? I'm reading an ebook which I also have the paperback for (which has miniscule print - aargh!) so am checking whether the misspelling etc is intentional.

POTD: Thomas Edison & Armed Henry Ford

I really wish this photograph could talk. In the mid-1920s, Henry Ford and Thomas Edison were part of a larger cross-country camping trip that included guests such as Harvey Firestone and President Harding. This photo is from part of that trip. Thomas Edison, in his early 70s, is shown sitting in one of Ford’s automobiles, […] Read More … The post POTD: Thomas Edison & Armed Henry Ford appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

The Olive Garden of Eden, with Raised Beds

Garden centers, try using the words “Garden of Eden” in your marketing copy. In the age of Google, gardening businesses, like all businesses, want to know what search terms people are using to find the stuff they sell. They’re told, “To reach out to your niche audience, you would probably be interested to know which keywords containing the term ‘Gardening’ do most users search for on Google.” Okay, I’ll bite. But no guarantee I’ll swallow. #1 is “Where is the garden of Eden?” Seriously? Oh y...

My CC can not connect

Hello I'm trying to connect my CC to my Desktop Gauge. I'm using the latest version of CC, and the message "Library is read-only". Then I modified the directory and the message "impossible to find the gauge" appears, and however much I try, it does not connect.

Temos muito para agradecer a Bolsonaro

Temos muito para agradecer a Bolsonaro. Bastaram 5 meses de um governo atípico, “sem jeito” com o congresso e de comunicação amadora para nos mostrar que o Brasil nunca foi, e talvez nunca será, governado de acordo com o interesse dos eleitores. Sejam eles de esquerda ou de direita. Desde a tal compra de votos […]

May Marvel

It is becoming very difficult to keep up with all that is happening in nature as we move through May. A month ago it was easy to keep tabs on what was leafing out, blooming, and gone by. Now, it’s a free-for-all, with hidden intrigue around every corner. As I walk along the garden path, the landscape is nearly unrecognizable from just two months ago, in the most delightful sense. Animal life is as present as ever. Toads hop between growing perennials, bees zoom past in search of food, and a conf...

Mary Ann Sate, Imbecile ~ Alice Jolly

Imbecile - A stupid person. Mid 16th century (as an adjective in the sense ‘physically weak’): via French from Latin imbecillus, literally ‘without a supporting staff’, from in- (expressing negation) + baculum ‘stick, staff’. The current sense dates from the early 19th century. I thought I'd better look up the meaning and origins of the word 'imbecile' because its one of those words that has floated along and possibly changed its inference down the years. I'd suggest used mostly as a form ...

For the second year in a row I will not be able to attend Book Expo in New York. I'm not all that upset because the real-life trade-offs I made are well worth it. On the downside, I hate missing the chance to visit with friends, see the city, and eat some good food. I'm also sorry to miss out on learning about all the new books coming out in the second half of the year. I can't do anything about compensating for missed face-to-face conversations with friends, but I can do something abou...
