EBooks. 20 Free e-books

It's been a while since I did any of 23 things and although I followed my notes - nothing seemed to happen. I got the screen print on to here, but I shall have to try AGAIN sometime to make sure I can see how it works .

Thing 17. Task 1 Google maps

The things that one can pick up from the computer are remarkable. It just needs the know-how and the time. I'm sure there's millions of things that I could be interested in, but there are other things that need to be done rather than sitting at the computer "playing"!

These are remarkable. Being able to zoom in and presumably download pictures that people have put onto the programme since these had the names of the photogtaphers attached.

According to Google maps.
It will take me 19 minutes to drive the 6.7 miles from home to Addenbrookes Hospital (that's according to a quiet time of day when there are no traffic jams or roadworks!)
It will take me I hour 49 minutes to walk that distance.
This is about right.
A few years ago when the snow came down and the traffic stood still. I walked and sometimes slithered. Leaving the hospital at about 8 p.m. I got home just after 10 p.m.

Thing.10 Social Bookmarking

That's more like it. It's better than uploading "Hoarder1" to "Hoarder1", but at least it showed the first stage of the operation.

It's really a bit silly to upload this to my blog since it is uploading it to itself. Perhaps I'll try uploading 23 things.

Thing 10(3) Social bookmarking: Delicious

It is interesting how you can find different articles. However, an awful lot of time is wasted while you're browsing. I can't get away from the feeling that I am wasting time which is valuable. However, I suppose that each time I add a "print screen" - I am knocking the method of doing it into my non-computer mind!

We have just had an exhibition at Emmanuel Church, Cambridge on the Universe.
We went to the Observatory on Madingley Road, Cambridge and had a very interesting talk. I have been cutting out articles from newspapers and magazines for some years and have put them together into a display file which was on show at the exhibition.

The above image was taken from the list of articles on "Delicious" which also had an RSS feed
which I will add to the appropriate section.

thing 10.2 My library.NHS

I tried to open the file that was on NHS.My library and it said that the page was unavailable and suggested a replacement.
I replaced it with this one

Thing 8.Browser Bookmarks

My Favourites are more organised now. I've tried to copy most of them (not my personal ones!), but they're not very well arranged on the page. I tried left, centre and right - but it didn't work out. Anyway - they're there. At least I think I've got the hang of doing a screen print and saving it to my documents and then uploading it. It would have been easier if I could have done a complete list at one time rather than having to keep moving down the list and doing small sections.

Thing 11

I found difficult to download onto My Documents. I shared the first one that I did with a colleague - but she couldn't open it. When I tried to upload it again, it said that it was in a format that it didn't know- so I got rid of it!
I still don't know what I'm doing.
