    What shows are you watching this Fall?

    I finally was able to read The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest. I really enjoyed it except for one part near the beginning where he goes into tedious detail about cold war history. I just skimmed over those pages.

    Internet Explorer Users and their IQ

    I love my Firefox. Great ad blocker, lots of options. IE is horrible since they "upgraded" from IE7. Now that I upgraded my yahoo, I don't have to use IE any more.

    Keyboards - Curiosities - a Travel story .

    I'm incensed that "they" removed the cent sign and substituted a caret. I've NEVER had the need to type a caret! I often need the cent sign. It's just not the same saying 99 cents. It wouldn't be bad if I could change the uppercase 6 back to the cent symbol, but I can't even do that! How...

    What books have you hated?

    Cujo by Stephen King. I had liked Stephen King before so when the book came out I grabbed it. I also like to read while I'm eating, but after 11 pages of snot and vomit, I threw the book in the trash.

    Which Was the Last Book You Read in One Sitting?

    I really don't remember, but I'd bet it was one of Nora Roberts' writing as J.D. Robb. Who knew sweet, tame Nora had such an alter ego.

    What's the most misspelled word?

    Funny, but when I see misspelled words I feel pity for the person who has embarrassed themselves publicly.

    Ken Follett

    I've been a little disappointed in Pillars of the Earth in that it just doesn't hold my attention. I work on it when I'm between books, but put it down when I have something else to read. It may be the subject matter that bothers me, evil people hiding behind religion.

    Stieg Larsson

    I've read the first two books and enjoyed them both equally and immensely. I'm still waiting for the 3rd to be available in paperback. I hadn't learned until recently that he had died. Such a shame, no more stories.:sad:

    Ignore Thread

    Having recently joined, I'm fairly sure I remember "Ignore This Thread" as being an option under Thread Tools. I don't see that option now. I also don't see the other way to keep unwanted threads from popping up every time someone posts, by marking the thread as read. Can someone please...
