Thanks chaps:

Just to make my week complete, when I tried to open my PC this morning to start work and to save urgent work onto memory sticks to use with this wee netbook, the darned thing wouldn't cooperate.

A tech guy's just been and taken it away. The mother board's kaput, so it means importing a new system from the UK or US (otherwise it would be in French). He'll be able to save my files, I guess, but not all the special software I have in there for my work.

And my big and beautiful Calibre Library will be wiped out, I suppose. That's what I was going to use this weekend to stock up on reading because I only carry a few odds and ends and my current reading book in my 505.

I've just installed Calibre on my netbook, so now it's a matter of downloading some new books. I'll try here at MR first; facing a lot of lost work through hospial time this year and now with a new computer to buy, I'll be conventrating on MR's generous free classics. Any quick reading tips would be appreciated.

Hoots. Neil
