  1. Sorry to learn of your PC difficulties Roger.  I went through similar frustrations with FSX a few years ago and learned those problems are enough to pull your hair out.   In then end I solved mine by throwing money at it and getting a new PC built for me.   I explained the problems to the tec guy, he gave me details of how to overcome them. I got a new PC with everything he suggested doubled!   Cost a bomb and took forever to get everything back on even though most of it was on back-up discs but did the trick!        Hope you get over yours soon mate.

  2. Thanks for the heads-up Rodger.  As you know I don't read war stories about WW1 or 2 and you are aware of the reasons for that but in view of your support of reading my books I'll certainly be obtaining yours as soon as I see it on Amazon if only for Keif & Kev'!  A 'heads up' would be nice.

     

    Rob, the nice thing about the Kindle Oasis is the handling is so much easier.  With the regular Paperwhite the on/off button is at the bottom so as soon as it rests or even touches your clothing it turns itself off!  Mind you, the Oasis is so much more expensive and the one thing negative I have to say about it is that unlike the normal Paperwhite it won't fit into a jacket pocket.


  3. Thanks Nick.

     

    The one I'm reading at the moment is by William Black.

     

    I also read all the C J Petit novels, Etta Foster, Cassidy Hanton, Katie Wyatt etc., etc.  Too numerous to mention really.  Also if course Louis L'Amour.

     

    Going to readers I'm an Amazon man, so virtually all my purchases except food are from them.

    All the best mate and happy reading.

  4. Got my new toy today. Besides flying, I read.  And don't laugh...Western romances mostly.  Anyway I got the new Kindle Oasis.  I think I'm going to like it.  It's much superior to the Paperwhite because it doesn't have the on/off button on the bottom.  I was always turning the Paperwhite off by mistake because the on/off button being on the bottom.  Damn silly.  Anyway, there's no danger of turning the new one off by mistake because its nicely located at the top.

     

    It cost me though.  About treble the price of the normal Paperwhite and because its wider it won't fit into a normal jacket pocket so I'll have to keep the Paperwhite for travelling.

     

    I know its a flying forum Nick but you know us old blokes, we'll talk about anything!

  5. They didn't put me down and sent me home unscathed and not really knowing why I'd been.  After all the normal tests, we were sent in to the consultant and spent most of the time chatting about a book he had just read by a chap who has been in Weishien Prison of war camp where Sheila and her family were incarcerated during the war.  Come to think of it, I needn't have been in the room at all!:rolleyes:
