At the beginning of January I started looking into if I could sell enough books on Amazon.com to purchase a Kindle (link). I have raised a little over $70 dollars so far and I’m going to post some more books this weekend. I have been a little slow getting started because I wanted to make sure I could get a few sent out without problems before I started listing a large number of books. I was able to figure out the best way to ship the books without spending too much money after spending more than was allocated for the shipping on the first couple books. The books that I have sold so far have gone for a decent price but some of the books that I looked into selling are listed for less than a dollar. At that point selling the book isn’t worth my time so I though that I would just donate the book to the local library.
Yesterday I ran across a site called Book Crossing that is a site set up so people can leave their books in a public place so others will read them. They provide a way to tell where the book has gone based on a tracking number. I think this is a great idea and for any of the fiction books I have that aren’t worth selling I think I will just leave them in a coffee shop. This way someone else gets to enjoy them and I don’t have to haul them down to the library. 🙂
On the 15th, I wrote a post about trying to keep my desktop clean of all files (link). I have been able to keep most of the icons off my desktop and I’m doing well at sorting the files into a folder that correctly identifies them. The problem that I have run into is that I have been dumping files into different folders when I’m too lazy to put them in the correct location. There are very specific folders where I keep dumping things and I keeping thinking that if I really want to stay organized I need something that bugs me when I don’t keep specific folders clean. I think that I’m going to write something quickly in the next week that will run as a scheduled job every couple hours to check specific folders for files. I’m working on a list of places where I seem to dump files I’m too lazy to deal with and this is what I have so far:
I guess I will have to think about this more while I walk between classes. Let me know if you have seen a program that will do something like this.
I just wanted to write a quick post about moving the blog and the problems I still have. Overall, I’m glad I made the switch because I have been able to do a lot that I wanted to do (including adding Twitter Tools) that I wouldn’t have been able to do on wordpress.com. I have had a lot of problems moving from the wordpress.com pages to my own hosting provider. I think a lot of this has to do with features that wordpress.com has aren’t in the base install and I’m still struggling to find the missing pieces.
I’m going to write a post about how I set up the blog and all the cool plug-ins I have found when I have a little more time. I would recommend that if you are thinking about moving to a managed host do it now instead of later.

This week for something different I have six pictures of Chandler and one of Bumblebee .
Have you ever noticed that you can’t tell what CSI is on just by looking at the description? It’s always “So and so investigates a dead prostitute while someone else looks into a mysterious death.” There must be dead prostitutes under every rock in Vegas and lots of mysterious deaths. I always have to watch it for a couple minutes before I can tell if I have seen it yet and then I can never remember if it’s the partner or sibling that killed them. At that point I’m so involved I have to finish it. 😉
