Good evening

Goodday to all at MobileRead - my name is Pete and I've been a visitor for a little while now, and have found a few good tips and answers from the knowledgeable folk here. I decided to register 'cause I need to ask a few questions.

I've had a black Kobo Touch since Christmas last year, and by and large it is a good device, albeit a little slow sometimes. I am upgrading this Christmas to a Glo and the Touch will be handed down to my daughter.

Not much else to say really - where I am right now, Brisbane, Australia, it is 9:30 on Tuesday night, about 35 degrees (c) and 95 percent humidity. In other words, stinking hot And wouldn't you know it, my aircon is on the fritz, and no breeze whatsoever coming through the windows.

At least Australia won their first cricket Test of the season today against Sri Lanka, in what came down to a nail-biting finish, for anyone who knows or cares about cricket.

That's it for me for now!

Cheers,

Pete

G'day mate, and thanks.

The Ashes are currently in *cough* England, Australia having lost them on the English tour of 2009, and then failing to win them back in 2010/2011 when England toured here. Next year there will be two Ashes series, one in England in July/August timeframe and then straight away a couple of months later in November in Australia. Usually, there is 18 months between series (give or take) but apparently this unusual timing has something to do with the London Olympics, i.e. it prevented the Ashes series from being played when it was originally scheduled.

No doubt they will be a couple of interesting contests. Australia still have a way to go before they will be ready (IMHO and judging from how poorly they did in the recent series against South Africa).

Cheers,

Pete
