Kindle / Kindle Oasis default name?

 

Kindle / Kindle Oasis default name? Hi can anyone confirm for me what their default name for their first kindle it use to be “Sylar’s Kindle” but even though my old kindle has long been deregistered it will not allow me to change what is currently my only kindle device to “Sylar’s Kindle” manually. It shows up as “Sylar’s second kindle” after trying to edit it it keeps telling me the name “Sylar’s kindle” is already in use? If I reregister it, it adds a period to the end of it?

problem with Kindle Store

10 November 2017 10:57 (GMT)

Hi everybody,
I have a problem with my new Kindle Paperwhite, the Kindle Store isn't working, the bestsellers-sellers books are being displayed but there's no ability to buy anything, it says: "currently unavailable"
When you search for any book or author in the store there are 0 results. Does anybody know why is it happening and how to solve the problem? I tried to restart it but no changes.
Thanks

Gaming the NYT Bestseller's List

Came across a very interesting article where some suspicious types took a look at the dramatic rise of a YA title called Handbook for Mortals.

Some great detective work and an interesting look at both group investigation and how systems can be played.

Indexing

Hi. 
I recently uploaded a document (.docx) to my Kindle Paperwhite via email. When I try to search in the document I get a message that the document is not indexed. What exactly does this mean and is it possible to correct it?
Thanks

FREE 11/18 to 11/21 Valentines Day

18 November 2017 14:33 (GMT)

Valentines Day 
“The point in history at which we stand is full of promise and danger. The world will either move forward toward unity and widely shared prosperity—or it will move apart.” President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

Six Time Patrol Agents are sent to the same day, 14 February, in six different years to keep our history, and our timeline, from being destroyed.

Ivar: 1929. Gunmen massacre seven people in the infamous St. Valentines Day Massacre. Al Capone is consolidating his grip on the Outfit in Chicago. But what if it turns out very differently?

Eagle: 1945. President Roosevelt, heading home from the Yalta Conference, stops on the Great Bitter Lake to meet King Idn Saud of Saudi Arabia to discuss a relatively new topic: Arab oil. And a Jewish homeland.

Roland: 1779. Captain Cook, famed explorer of the Pacific, meets his fate in Hawaii.

Scout: 278. Saint Valentine is beheaded near the Milvian Bridge.

Doc: 1945. The Dresden Firebombing. Kurt Vonnegut is in a slaughterhouse as the first bombers appear overheard.

Moms: 1946. The ENIAC computer, programmed by six women, is unveiled to the public. The press thinks the women are simply models.

The mission, as always for the Time Patrol, seems straight-forward: keep history intact. No matter the cost.

But this time, things go very differently than in previous missions and one of the team members must make the ultimate sacrifice.

FREE: Omega Sanction

13 November 2017 13:42 (GMT)

Omega Sanction
Publishers Weekly: “The action is crisp with a great job of establishing a sense of reality—and real danger—by mixing current fears about killer diseases with a clear-eyed view of the Army.”[b]

The most frightening weapon ever invented can be unleashed by a single person. And now, they have chosen her.

On the border between Croatia and Bosnia, a killer practices his art on UN Peacekeeping troops, leaving handless bodies on display on crosses.

In a trailer near Fort Bragg, a hitman targets a computer genius who has uncovered information more explosive than he could ever guess.

And in an ancient, abandoned castle in Germany, a teenage girl is plunged into living hell—one that will take her into the heart of a murderous Middle Eastern plot. The only mistake the bad guy’s make, is not taking into account her father is Special Forces. 
[/b]
[b][Image: 51RvdUmFjSL._SY346_.jpg]

Now only one Special Forces operative can stop two madmen from turning the girl into a devastating biological weapon. In a series of brutal covert operations, Thorpe must battle not only the enemy, but betrayal from his own side to not only stop the weapon, but save the daughter of his best friend.

FREE: Nine Eleven (Time Patrol)

05 November 2017 15:44 (GMT)

Nine Eleven
'He who controls the past, controls the future. He who controls the present, controls the past.' Orwell. 1984.

Six Time Patrol agents must travel into the past to insure our timeline remains intact.
[Image: 51I6WWzZNjL.jpg]

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, 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 to discuss a possible peace settlement. What if they succeed?

On Nine-Eleven 2011, 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 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.
