    Hamlet translation help

    Hey does anyone know where (if there is one) I can find a translated simple version of Hamlet and its not that I can't stand inversion but Shakespeare is something else. I've been reading it and it seems interesting but most of the time I find myself asking what the hell is he saying. If you...

    zipped file

    One was an ISO file which was compressed nearly 400 mbs (which I've never seen that before...) and the other was a whole game compressed over a gig. Most of the zipped files I see aren't compressed more than 200 megs. And I would fiind it useful if I could compress files by a lot since I ran out...

    zipped file

    I was wondering this since I got the file. It was like an 85 meg zipped file but when I unzipped it it was like 800 megs. I know zipping compresses and conserves space BUT THAT MUCH!:confused: Does anyone know how he did that?

    Good Place to Read

    I really like reading at the park on a bench. As long as there isn't much wind. It gets annoying when I have to be holding the pages down so they won't just turn on me.

    Books you didn't finish

    Their Eyes Were Watching God. That book was BORING. It felt a bit repetitive.

    Can anybody recommend some good mysteries?

    I'd recommend the "Heart-Shaped Box". It's a pretty intense book. I found myself reading it until like 4,5,6 in the morning. I couldn't put it down. At first it starts off a bit slow (like Watership Down) but it picks up pretty quickly. It has a lot of twists (but not too many ) and it leaves...

    I have a problem...

    Haha those are very good. It's just that about 2 years ago I had back injury during a football game and I find reading rather difficult now. I read on my side or face down a lot, but my neck begins to hurt after a while so I lay flat and have the book directly above me but my arms get tired. I'm...
