What do you use to manage your ebooks, Cain?

I'm going through mine at the moment, with Calibre, but the 'edit metadata' screen takes a good few seconds to change between books and twenty or so to fetch metadata from Amazon once I've told it what the book is named. I've got 7000 to name and tag  :eek:

Awesome to hear, ECH!

Taking bets how long it takes me to name and tag 7000 ebooks from my "Untitled" category.

DEAR SKYRIM,

IF I AM PLAYING "DEAD IS DEAD"/"IRONMAN" PLAYTHROUGH WHERE I DELETE THE CHARACTER IF I DIE, IT IS HILARIOUS BUMMER TO HAVE DRAGON IN STARTING CUTSCENE GLITCH OUT AND KILL ME BEFORE I GET CONTROL OF MY CHARACTER.

Further to my post, that cycle is only comic while it's sport and not tedium for Roger.

I can't imagine how your stay might ever be comfortable, expect to be misinterpreted and misrepresented at our early convenience, and totally scorned if you try to save us from PD villains.

Lol, I have no ill will left towards you CU, but you are to me the archetypal PD poster for the 'apologise, flip out at Roger, apologise' cycle and a comic character.

Personally, I would like to experiment with you changing your avatar to something not so easily associated with your previous screeching, if you choose to stay.

Published on one of NZ's two major news sites.

Quote from: JOJO MADDREN
Labour needs the Greens and New Zealand First to even think about forming a government.

The Greens, if they ever got to any real political power, would destroy the wellbeing of New Zealand while attempting to save the country for all the sheep. But with the rest of the world busy cranking up the greenhouse gases, even the poor old Kiwi battler wouldn't survive under their rule.

For now, Labour has David Cunliffe but at the rate he's going in the opinion polls, it won't be long before we have another change of Labour leader. Just when we thought we had got rid of that fishy smell in Parliament, Shane Jones of SeaLord fame will step forward into the breech.

As for Winston Peters, since I met over him a year ago, there hasn't been a day gone by I haven thought of him. And I haven't thought about him today either.

So folks, why would you even think of changing a winning National team?

One which has led us through the great financial crisis to the promised land. That's the key issue which will get my vote: proven leadership in the tough times. QED.

Crowdsourced news ftw!

Mozilla Chief Executive Brendan Eich has stepped down, the company has said, after an online dating service urged a boycott of the company's web browser because of a donation Eich made to opponents of marriage equality.

The software company came under fire for appointing Eich as CEO last month. In 2008, he gave money to oppose the legalisation of marriage equality in California, a hot-button issue especially at a company that boasts about its policy of inclusiveness and diversity.

"We didn't act like you'd expect Mozilla to act," wrote Mozilla Executive Chairwoman Mitchell Baker in a blog post. "We didn't move fast enough to engage with people once the controversy started. We're sorry."

The next step for Mozilla's leadership "is still being discussed," she added, with more information to come next week.

While activists applauded the move, many in the technology community lamented the departure of Eich, who invented the programming language Javascript and co-founded Mozilla.

"Brendan Eich is a good friend of 20 years, and has made a profound contribution to the web and to the entire world," venture capitalist Marc Andreessen tweeted.

Eich donated US$1000 in 2008 in support of California's Proposition 8, which banned gay marriage in the state until it was struck down by the Supreme Court in June.

His resignation came days after OkCupid.com, the popular online dating site, called for a boycott of Mozilla Firefox to protest the world's Number 2 web browser naming a marriage equality opponent as chief executive.

On Monday, OkCupid sent a message to visitors who accessed the website through Firefox, suggesting they use browsers such as Microsoft Corp's Internet Explorer or Google's Chrome.

"Mozilla's new CEO, Brendan Eich, is an opponent of equal rights for gay couples," the message said. "We would therefore prefer that our users not use Mozilla software to access OkCupid."
