Chantal, bless her heart, e-mailed me and was all 'Dude, what are you doing with that e-book reader? Are you buying books!?'
And I was all 'Dude, I have a shortage of phone jacks and we're trying to find a place the pooch won't find the reader and destroy it.'
Chantal was way too sweet to say what I'm paraphrasing here:
'Yo, dumbass. You don't need to hook it up by the phone line, use the USB port.'
Holy Light Shines in the Brain!!
After getting over my own stupidity I ran to get the ebook and hooked it up to my laptop.
Okay, stupid Cindy showed up again and the ebook reader froze after I hooked it up to my computer. I panicked and was all, WTF? I figure out I have to download a driver and off I go on a mission. I find the drivers but I don't find anything for Vista so I download the next one down.
Stupid computer can't figure out WTF is connected to it. Grrrrrr.
It's early morning and I have special company coming today (squeeeee!!) so I need to start winding down. That said, I ran downstairs and loaded the driver on my PC and will connect the reader later tonight and pray that it works.
So I sent a letter to ebookwise to see if they have a driver compatible with Vista.
Update: I found the driver for Vista and have now registered. Now I need to read about how to transfer books and such. But sleepy time is coming up! I'm so friggin excited! I love the screen and the little tappy pen to set up stuff. Way too fun!
If any of you know for sure I would love to know. All I know is Sunday will be ebook day!!
That is, unless my special company wants to see what a reader is all about and I'm thinking she just might!
Woohoo! I'm getting there folks!
Not only that, I finally got my new camera out (from Christmas) and will try and load it on my laptop Sunday also. Unless I get lost shopping for ebooks. I'm thinking that could very well happen!
