OK, ladies and gents...just a gentle reminder.

Forum rules allow discussing things such as bit torrents in the technical aspect. As in: "what is a bit torrent".

Discussion of actual downloads via bit torrents, which may or may not contravene Thai and international copyright law, are verboten.

Thai Visa has to protect itself from the copyright police just like everyone else.

Please keep this in mind.

As an addendum to the above....before all of you who had your posts deleted start to froth at the mouth.:ph34r:

You all used nested quotes. As in, you quoted the member who specifically refered to the downloads he did off of piratebay or kickass or wherever.

Had you not quoted this member's post in your reply, your post would not have been deleted....and for that I apologise.:jap:

Please refer to the forum rules regarding mention of copyright infringement before posting further on this topic, and thank you for your understanding.

I just ordered a kindle but not sure how the e books works. if I download the free books how do i get them onto the kindle? what and how should i be doing this

thanks in advance

If you order free books from the amazon site they will be sent to your Kindle directly in a few seconds (assuming you've got it connected to the web, I believe it connects to your network wirelessly)

If you have downloaded other types of files you might find this site helpful http://kindleformatting.com/formatting.php

It tells you how to convert .doc files for your kindle.

I haven't done it myself, haven't got one (yet) but there must be a way.

Also, if they're .pdf files then I believe you can load them onto your kindle via the usb cable.

Hope this helps, let us know how you get on :)

Not an e-book .. but something to think about.

Posted by Gary A over in the computer forum several months ago.

Makes a lot of sense for some situations.

When I bought my Garmin Nuvi 750, I received a coupon from Audible Books. They gave me two free books to try it out. I signed up for the club after trying it out. The cost is $22.95 a month for two books per month. I play a book when I am driving to kill the boredom. The Nuvi has an FM transmitter as well as an audio jack. The book downloads are slick and fast. They are much more compressed than MP3 and the sound is great. I have since learned that Audible supports many different devices. I now have a number of books on my Creative Zen and my Nokia phone as well as the Nuvi. Having these books will make a long flight easier to take. It takes about 15 hours to play a typical book and there are thousands of choices.

Chiang Rai Knights of the E-Book.

Inaugural meeting.

Present: Sir lannaman, Sir sceadugenga, sceadugenga’s dog. (A varlet).

Sceadugenga moved the meeting start an hour early, carried unanimously.

Lannaman not having arrived was elected Grand Master for life, vice president for life, secretary for life, treasurer for life and Sergeant-at-arms for life in his absence.

Vote was carried unanimously; rumors that sceadugenga’s dog was bribed with a biscuit are scurrilous lies.

Sceadugenga was elected teaboy and collector of alms and donations by acclamation.

Lannaman arrived, announced by sceadugenga’s dog .

Lannaman, unaware of the honors bestowed upon him, shared e-books with sceadugenga and went on his way rejoicing.

Meeting closed.

Sir Lannaman is indeed honoured by the titles bestowed on him at this morning’s meeting at Chateaux Scea. Sir Sceadugenga extended a hospitable welcome to the pile, however the dog valet was a little hostile to this other knight arriving in his domain, later becoming a little more respectful.

Many books and movies were exchanged at the meeting; Sir Lannaman giving a lot less than he received. In view of this I propose that Sir Lannaman relinquishes the title of Grand Master in favour of Sir Sceadugenga. Sir L also proposes that other ebookers gather together for another exchange meeting in the near future.

If you are following "Roberts Rules of Order" I would call for a question on wether four legged varets can constitute a quorum. .

Whoops! My typing missed the "l". I am well aquainted with varlets although that is not the term I usually use, because they wouldn't know what it meant.B) On second thought, maybe I should use it more.:D

Two thirds of membership constitutes a quorum as long as the total number of legs of the quorum is six or more.
