That really is some atrocious handwriting. Halfy is either much better at deciphering it than I am or he put a lot of time into that (or both)!

I just noticed how Figgy's context helps, so eliminated some question marks:

"initial form in peacock feathers -
fascinating[?] - get[?] just at
intervals: think about the story line.
see next page ->"

"Integration of of Fig. into text is
slightly confusing, better to put
all ; this[?] means[?] at the
end, and make them bigger!"

Ah, now it seems you are wanted to include ALL your figures, not just a select few, and with so many it's better to put them at the end.

As a former teacher I know that grading and commenting on papers is a highly time consuming process; you try to write as fast as your mind thinks, else it can double an already lengthy time in grading. I had a discussion with other teachers who said that yes, they ALL had students coming up to them asking 'can you tell me what this is?' Razz So having been on the other side I have a more intuitive feel for the fragmentary comment.

thanks Halfy. Thumbs Up its true she was writing fast as we talked, and there were so many ideas flowing about its a wonder she got anything down on paper. I personally find Dictaphones very useful in those situations, that way you can go back at your leisure. Doctors are another lot who write like they are King Tut about to kick the bucket.

If you're talking about microsoft word, first find a format menu, then go to paragraph. Can't say much more than that, and even that may be wrong because MS keeps wildly changing their arrangement of things. The latest versions are nearly impossible to decipher where anything is.

um... 'double' = 2 Surprised

But unless you are specifically required to double space, play around and find which one you prefer.

Fucking Reddit.

It's a cesspool out there. You can pour your energy and enthusiasm and interest in things into it and the waters of inanity swallow it all up and spit out a pile of crap into your face.

It really is the worst. I will go elsewhere from now on. It is as bad as Facebook.

Audible.com is making me crabbit!

Its business model is based on the usage of DRM to protect audiobooks from being illegally distributed. The problem is that that means that all of their content is encoded in .aa or .aax file formats. Meaning, of course, that I am unable to transfer said content onto my new MP3 player and am also foiled from burning the content onto CDs, which is something they simply do not support and which I have yet to find a work-a-around. Apparently everyone listens either on an iPod, their smart-phone, or through their computer. So what am I to do if I want to listen in my car? Mad

So, after 4 different attempts, I've given up on the whole bugger and decided to take the rebellious path and use my old fallback {{{torrents}}}. I'm currently about 14 hours in to downloading The Way of Kings with about 12 hours to go (unless the current upswing of peers continues, in which case I only have 4 hours to go).

The man drove me to it! I have no regrets! (Especially as I already paid for the bloody product!)

Hey Forest.
Your friendly computer-geek coming out with some EPIC advise for your problems!
So your problem here is the DRM protection. That isn't really a big problem! There are many different programs out there that is used to remove the DRM protection.
Here is a list with a few different sites that has listed some of the top DRM-removal tools [[[I don't know if you have a mac, windows or linux OS, so i'll just list a few different sites]]]

Windows OS:
http://www.topsoftreviews.net/top-5-aa-aax-to-mp3-converter-reviews/ (Windows only)

http://sourceforge.net/projects/aaxtomp3/ (Russian program (i think). First button to find file, 2nd button to start conversion.)

Some mac options:
http://www.macsome.com/ (Macsome Audio Book converter ( Audio book converter, iTunes music converter, audio recorder, audio editor, audio book splitter, freeware, for Mac OS X) , which can help you to convert Audible AA to MP3 easily.)

http://toptitleweb.com/howtos/convert-aax-to-mp3.html (I think this one works on both mac and windows)

I feel like you are opening your trench coat in a side alley: "Pssst....hey buddy - like some DRM removal tools? Good deal for you."
