Me and my Kindle

You probably know this about me already, but I am a gadget person. And I recently got my hands on a few shiny things I’d been lusting after for awhile. I thought, now that I’ve lived with them for some time, I should do a little writeup on how they’re working out for me. My preciouses are: the Amazon Kindle electronic reader; the Roth Motorboard electric scooter, and the Eee PC mini-laptop. I’ll start with the Kindle and then maybe write about the others in another post. Or not, who cares? Google is your friend. And they’re all great products, I recommend them all. :-)

  • Some spammer is using my e-mail addy as their ‘from’ and ‘reply-to’. Getting shitloads of bounced undeliverables from all over the world. #
  • My browser cache is going haywire. The Amazon Kindle page says Kindles are *in stock*…!! I gotta reboot. #
  • Now I’m reading Metamorphosis by the REAL Kafka. Seems a lot easier to read than it did last time — but I was only like 12 years old! Heh. #
  • The Kindle Cake (via The Book of Kindle)
  • Worked again. It went better than last time, but I’m still too slow, asking too many frickin’ questions. I wanted to hit the ground running! #
  • Argh! Mac is a computer made by Apple. MAC stands for media access control: every networked computer has a MAC address. Yup. You’re welcome. #
  • Just finished “Kafka on the Shore” by Haruki Murakami. Oh my god. Wonderful. Can’t recommend it highly enough. I’m all choked up about it! #
  • @pallbear: I hope you’ll love it too…it’s not a difficult read like the real Kafka! BTW the Kindle version is spotless. Not even one typo. #
  • Get the link to your Google Talk chatback (via Harper)
  • Got a membership to LibraryThing. Getting as much as I can onto the Kindle (& selling the paper versions) so I need something to keep track. #
  • はろ #
  • Twitter is allowing me to randomly log in as random people whenever I hit “Sign Out” TWITTER FREAKOUT!!! FIX ME!! #
  • Twitter needs to fix this random session bug! I’m not this person.. if you need help to fix it contact me at #
  • JEEZ Twitter!! WTH?! (from the real edith) #
  • Sending Amazon a big list of broken links in a Kindle book I’m reading. They’re not paying me… it’s just annoying and I’m anal like that. #
  • Some unknown caller has called our landline **13** times in the last two days without leaving a message. Ringer’s off. Suck it! #
  • Twitter is buggin’ out on me. I got no “Actions” section so nobody can DM or nudge me. Pretty sure “d edithfrost blah blah” works though. #
  • I finally finished reading Musicophilia! Whew. Good enough book, just hard to get through all those clinical tales. #
  • Skeptical about Amazon Daily. Thinks it’s the new Bloglines or GReader, but with Amazon-knows-best subscription choices. #
  • Just finished another Kindle book, “After the Quake” by Haruki Murakami. Also: it’s been pouring rain for like a month now. Is that normal? #
  • My Kindle is out for delivery! #
  • My Kindle’s here! It’s so spiffy. First purchase was ‘The Diamond Age’ by Neal Stephenson. Got tons of other (free) stuff to read later too. #
  • Got my 2nd copy of Musicophilia, heheh. JJ gave me the hardcover for Xmas but I’m only halfway through and wanna continue! So, of course… #
