Newbie trying to assess the utility of this forum. Hard to navigate. Needle/haystack scene. Was hoping for QAs and useful suggestions about converting InDesign and PDF layouts to ebook usable stuff. Anyone have positive experience with an authoring forum? Especially where precisely coordinated graphics are involved? (As in picture books or nitty gritty texts where you want the picture of what you're explaining right there, not 1-2 pages B4 or after.) Currently trying to figure out Calibre as authoring tool, which is how I got here. But I don't see threads involving graphics and page breaks yet.
Calibre isn't an authoring tool. You want Sigil and the Sigil forum for that.

You also want the workshop forum and possibly the ePub forum.

I've jumped out of planes a few times, but never while they were in the air. Always wanted to try that parachute thing, though.

Isn't it amazing how much we do rely on "just turn on the faucet and hot water comes out" ? When mine went out, I asked a neighbor's husband to help me remove and replace mine. I just couldn't wait that much longer to have instant hot water again. (It was easier to do than I thought).

I had signed up to do parachute with a couple of friends, but they cancelled... I was secretly glad that I could do so too. I have a fear of heights and I wasn't really looking forward to doing a jump. I had enough trouble doing practice ones off the smoke jumpers practice tower.

I think that might be considered 'cheating...'

I don't fear hights. I fear falling from them, even though the falling doesn't hurt. Only the stopping.

My thought exactly! I had a glider pilot friend who asked a military guy whether he should try out the military chute he always wore in the glider - just to see what it would feel like, you know? The guy said said "You don't want to know what it feels like!"

OMG! I haven't heard that (or even thought about it) in more than forty years! I can't think how it goes, now.


You don't really need to remind me... I gotten on OK without it
