    how to get free ebooks...as requested by boonmee

    apparently some people still don't use torrents

    you will need a torrent client

    i use deluge
    most people seem to favour utorrent so i installed it for demo purposes

    go to utorrent.com and download and install the free version

    start install...accept conditions
    click next a few times til you get to this part

    very important when installing anything

    never do full install...the fukkers will be looking to throw a browser hijacker onto your computer
    (deluge doesn't do this)

    always click on custom install

    uncheck the 2 boxes and continue



    should look like this before you continue



    et voila

    go here
    search books or collections

    click the little magnet
    download

    The Pirate Bay - The galaxy's most resilient bittorrent site

    when done
    stick kindle into laptop

    copy the file and chuck it into your kindle....'send to' doesn't work'

    any questions booners?

    as an aside

    i much prefer deluge as a torrent client

    far less commercial and more stable

    Deluge BitTorrent Client

    You should probably mention the bit about 'disconnecting' the kindle

    booners

    please be absolutely certain to do custom install and uncheck the boxes

    you really don't want search conduit hijacking your browser


    getting deluge is probably a better bet in any case

    All that will matter in future is the delivery system, with content relegated to being the filler between banner ads.

    No excuses from me - I enjoy stealing stuff from the internet.

    However, if you can point me to a shop in the town I live that sells original copies of the programs I like to watch then I will happily support them.

    Also re the ebook equation, I believe that if you download .epub files you'll need to convert them before you can read on the kindle.

    He types like he's minted.

    It doesn't stop him coming across as a twat. <---That's not me calling him a twat by the way, just an observation. He could very well be a nice man/woman.

    booners has somehow managed to get hijacked by snap.do


    it's a little bit tricky to get rid of in firefox but this works

    i had to get rid of it on my mum's computer last week...

    few things you need to do to get rid of snapdo

    1. get rid of it in add remove programmes if there's anything in there

    2. delete from firefox add ons

    3. change home page from snapdo in firefox properties

    4...this is the thing that will get rid of it good and proper

    right click firefox icon on desktop click on properties you'll see this target
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" and then an URL address for snap.do.

    delete the snapdo bit at the end so you are left with this

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe

    that will work

    You can easily buy original material cheaply from Amazon.com

    Maybe he doesn't want his bank details on line.

    Are you suggesting that royalties to artists are more important than a man's finances?

    the entertainment industry is paying the price for its inability to forecast the technical age

    they could have made it work for them but didn't

    netflix is a decent legal model...i'd contemplate that but then figure i prefer to keep the movies forever and for free

    Not exactly stealing bread to feed your family are you? This is not a moral theft

    There's no ethical high ground to be had. The honest answer is one you've given already - that (whilst you probably would not steal a pair of underpants from next door's clothesline) you like stealing stuff from the internet*

    Have you tried using dropbox to move the files?

    Using Dropbox with your Kindle device

    There isn't an ethical or moral high ground to be had - correct.

    Why were you bringing up CMN's online practices again?

    Edit: regardless it doesn't really matter.

    With cmn's good efforts, Snapdo is history.

    As he mentioned, be extremely cautious with the utorrent setup.
