The Kindle Gets A Firmware Update

Kindle (Global Wireless) and Kindle (U.S. Wireless)

  • Longer battery life for Kindle (Global Wireless): You can now read for up to 1 week on a single charge with wireless on. Turn wireless off and read for up to 2 weeks.
  • Built-in PDF reader: Your Kindle can now display PDF documents without losing the formatting of the original file. Send PDF documents directly to your Kindle (via your @Kindle address) or drag and drop PDF files from your computer to your Kindle (when connected via USB). Learn more.
  • Manual screen rotation: The Kindle screen can now manually rotate between portrait and landscape views so you can see the entire width of a web page or magnify the page of a PDF file. The page-turn buttons work the same in either orientation, and the 5-way controller movements are switched to match the orientation. Learn more.
  • Option to convert PDF files to Kindle format. If you prefer to have your personal PDF documents converted to the Kindle format (so that they can reflow), type "Convert" in the subject of the e-mail when you submit your personal document to your @kindle.com address.
Kindle (U.S. Wireless) and Kindle (Global Wireless) users can go to Archived Items on their Kindle and download the Kindle User's Guide, 4th Ed., which now documents all the features of Kindle Software 2.3.

What If Earth Had Rings Like Saturn?

... And Sometimes It All Goes At Once!

November has brought to me the perfect storm of system failures:

- Theater Room HDTV DVR died, replacement arrived but will not boot.  A new one should arrive on Tuesday.

- SLK keeps showing a low pressure warning for the tires even though they are all aired up to 32 pounds.

- Computer that runs the weather station has died, this occurred the week after the wind speed sensor failed on the station.

- All of the media readers on my main computer will not work anymore and each day brings another strange glitch.  I smell a motherboard problem.

- The main line of electricity for the entire backyard has an underground short somewhere.  No power for anything.  We have to run a brand new line.

I think I know what I'll be doing during my next vacation!

MyLifesIsAverage

Yesterday, I was handing out candy when a costumeless boy came up and wondering what he was, I asked. He looked at me with a straight face and said, ''I'm a serial killer. We look like everyone else.''

Fast Food Folk Song (at the Taco Bell Drive-Thru)



Yes! the guy's reaction is totally authentic. He had no idea we were coming, and he really got the order right (almost right). We couldn't believe it either, so we understand the questions....

LYRICS:
Iʼll start with a taco, soft like a cloud
I want mine crunchy, I like to eat loud.
Iʼll choose a chalupa, Iʼll grab a gordita,
and two taco salads for our senoritas.
And a Burrito Supreme, with extra sour cream
Itʼs a cylindrically shaped seasoned beef dream.
A taquito. An enchirito. Some cinnamon twists.
A chicken border bowl. Are you gettinʼ all this?

And you know that nothing beats a
hmmm, mmmm...Mexican Pizza...
Weʼll take two of those, but please hold the diced tomatoes.
And I admit, Iʼve always felt,
like Iʼm in love with the meximelt.
Make mine with a little extra love, and think of me...
as the cheese drops from your Taco Bell glove.
and thatʼs it.

No! Iʼm not done...Iʼll also take a...

Double-decker taco cause Iʼm feeling wild
And make my sauce Fire. Uh, heʼll take mild.
and weʼll take two Mt. Dew Baja blasts
for a chance at 25 dollars cash
Iʼm told thereʼs a winner for every 5 minutes
Iʼm stealing your online code if you win it.
Why would you do that? You owe me 25 bones
I owe you 5. Plus interest--it was a loan.
And I think weʼll be satisfied, if we get some mexican rice on the side.
And thatʼs it.

Mount Hua



Hua Shan or Mount Hua is one of the five sacred mountains of China. It is a protected national park about a half day's drive outside Xi'An, capital of Shaanxi Province. It was a place of refuge for Tao hermits and monks for centuries and may even be where The Tao originated thousands of years ago...
