Older US Kindle - help required!!

16 September 2019 16:31 (GMT)

Hi guys,

I have an older Kindle (International version) which was ordered from the US site before the UK site started selling them. It seems that with the new influx of Kindle users, the longer term ones have been forgotten because all support for this model on the Amazon website seems to have vanished.

I have a couple of questions. Firstly, I'm using firmware version 2.5.2. Can I update to the version 3 firmware, or isn't it suitable for this model?

Secondly, I always connect via Whispernet, but my connection isn't great and I can never get books to download properly so have to download them to my PC. I'd love to connect to my home network via Wi-Fi, but I'm not sure if it's possible. There certainly doesn't seem to be an option in the Settings to set it up, but that might be something to do with the firmware version I have.

Any help would be much appreciated!distance between US cities

Desktop says internet speed 3.5 Mbps and WiFiMan says 40.8

14 September 2019 11:58 (GMT)

My elderly neighbor has a desktop that keeps dropping internet so I was trying to help. Measured with the WiFiMan app on my phone and it says 40.8 Mbps download but when I go to spectrum and measure with the desktop it comes back with speed 3.5 Mbps? He said it was worse when the desktop was under the desk but I'm stumped. Could there be interference somewhere? I am on the same network next door and have a drop now and then but generally very strong connection. He says the guy who maintains his PC says there is nothing wrong with it and it is relatively new within the last couple of years. Any ideas?

Buying a new Kindle in France

03 September 2019 14:14 (GMT)

Hi, My 9 year old keyboard Kindle has been playing up for a few weeks and has finally died today.   Cant switch on or off non of the keys respond so time to replace.
Amazon Uk will not deliver to France, so if I buy from Amazon France will I be able to set it up, changing language and keyboard to UK English and connecting to my UK Amazon account to buy books as I have done since living in France.  Will I be able to download all the collections of books to the new item.
Thanks for your help.

WiFi issue

20 August 2019 08:58 (GMT)

[font="Noto Sans", Arial, sans-serif]Trying to get Boot Camp working so that I can run PC only music software. Successfully set it up, was able to run Windows 10, but I'm not able to connect to Wifi. My computer isn't detecting any networks. I've read up a bunch of Apple forums, a lot of them talk about a certain Broadcom driver in the Device Manager, but I'm not seeing it. It looks like a bunch of other people have run into this issue but there isn't one clear solution. Thought I'd ask here. Also worth noting that I uninstalled the Boot Camp partition after trying and failing a couple solutions, and I hope I didn't fuck myself by losing my Windows 10 key. Thanks in advance![/font]how to win internet cafe games

NEW YORK MINUTE
First Blood meets Breaking Bad, but this time the bad protects the innocent.
The last time former Green Beret Will Kane was involved in killing someone it made the cover of LIFE Magazine. 

Eight years later he's getting pushed to the edge of that precipice he vowed never to go over again.
[Image: 51n-cSJ5OoL.jpg]

New York City, summer 1977. The Bronx is burning. The twin towers of the new World Trade Center loom over the skyline. Son of Sam. Star Wars. Studio 54. The Five Families. The city faces bankruptcy and unrest seethes.

On the dark streets of a city the rest of the country believes is going down the toilet, Vietnam vet Kane's life mirrors his hometown.

Carrying a past cratered with death and tragedy, Kane has been working as a 'fixer' for a high-priced lawyer since returning to New York in disgrace. But is he really fixing anything? 

It begins when he takes a compromising picture as part of the job. As the long hot summer boils, so does Kane as the mob, the CIA, the IRA and other forces are brought to bear on him. What they all seem to have forgotten, and Kane wishes he could, is that he is a highly trained and experienced warrior.
A skilled killer.

What should a good man do when faced with evil that the law can't touch?

Kane faces threats, betrayal and shadows from his past, and then, on 13 July 1977, the Blackout occurs and Kane explodes.

For fans of the Green Beret series of books, this book is a prelude to the entire series, and introduces a new character in his own series. Dave Riley is here as Will Kane's 17 year old younger cousin.

This book will be followed by Will Kane in Lawyers, Guns and Money, also set in New York City in 1977, publishing on 16 September

FREE thru 9/14 I: Judas: The Fifth Gospel

I, Judas: The Fifth Gospel
What if the Apocalypse is something no one can imagine?

As a massive object appears in space heading directly toward Earth, the Brotherhood heralds it as Wormwood, one of the signs of the Rapture and it's just three days away. They have been preparing to implement the Great Commission as designated by Jesus--where everyone on the planet must hear the word of God before the end in order to be saved. They will use advanced technology to send that message directly into the minds of every human on the planet. The question is: will the message kill everyone who gets it or save them?

Believing that Judas, the anti-Christ, is alive and well and living in the Amazon, they send a team of assassins up the Amazon to find the Great Betrayer and kill him before Armageddon.

Opposing the Brotherhood is the Triumvirate of the Illuminati. They believe they must stop the Great Commission and the assassination team. At the same time they rush to gather nuclear weapons and launch missiles into space to divert the Intruder, as they call the object, believing it to be a natural phenomenon over which technology will prevail.

As the object nears Earth, both sides become locked in a world-wide battle for the future of the human race, as Judas prepares in the jungle for the Second Coming, the fulfillment of his Fifth Gospel.

Which is not at all what anyone expects.

NINE ELEVEN (TIME PATROL)
'He who controls the past, controls the future. He who controls the present, controls the past.' George Orwell. 1984
What does it take to change history and destroy our reality? Change events on the same date, 11 September, in six different years. The Time Patrol must send an agent back to each day, with just 24 hours for each to defeat the Shadow's plan to disrupt our time-line, creating a time tsunami and wiping our present out.

Roland goes to Nine-Eleven 9 A.D., when three Roman legions are annihilated by an alliance of Germanic tribes; the Romans would never again attempt to expand east of the Rhine River. What if the Romans won?

Ivar travels to Nine-Eleven 1973, when a military coup in Chile, engineered by the United States, topples the elected President and brings Pinochet to power. What if the coup fails?

Moms goes back to Nine-Eleven 1857, when 120 emigrants are slaughtered by Mormons in the Mountain Meadows Massacre in Utah. What if it was worse than that? And what if Moms faces a personal dilemma of her own past there?

Doc goes to Nine-Eleven 1776, when Benjamin Franklin and John Adams sit down with British Admiral Howe on Staten Island to discuss a possible peace settlement. What if they succeed?

On Nine-Eleven 2001, while the world is focused on the United States, the largest plane in the world is carrying the largest nuclear weapon ever made across Russia; but disappears. Who took it? Where is it? That's Eagle's mission.

And then there is the most mysterious mission of all, where a Time Patrol agent must go into the Patrol's own recent history to insure it even exists.

The Shadow's plan is to disrupt our time-line, creating a time tsunami and wiping our present out.

It is up to the Time Patrol to make sure that doesn't happen!

FREE 19/1 to 9/3 Area 51: Invasion

01 September 2019 14:01 (GMT)

Area 51: Invasion
The Ancient Enemy has arrived.

A Swarm Battle Core is orbiting Earth preparing for the Reaping.

The remnants of mankind desperately try to either survive or fight back.

But they aren't certain what they're going to face. All they have are myths and legends. And when the Swarm actually does land, it's worse than any of those.

Major Mike Turcotte, the hero in defeating the Airlia, makes a desperate attempt to stop the Swarm by going directly to the Core. On Earth, the future of mankind hides in the Facility, an underground self-contained ecosystem. And across the planet others prepare for the last fight.

From an Assassin in New York City who performs a heroic act of sacrifice, to the enigmatic Darlene in her trailer in Marfa, Texas, to Nosferatu and Nekhbet, the last two Elder undead hiding on an island in Puget Sound.

It appears there is no hope.

But there is always hope, but sometimes it takes a tremendous, unthinkable sacrifice.
