Understanding? General principal? What do these words mean?
Just like an std, will never fully go away.

Understanding is where somebody is above you (for instance, on a ladder) with enough distance from you that you can still comfortably remain in a fully standing position. You are understanding that person.

General-principal is the position held by the head of a military school.

I am not up to date on all these new gadgets.

Does the kindle have to be constently connected to the new?

I'm going to assume you meant "net" at the end there. If not, disregard this message.

It's not done precisely like WiFi, it's a system more akin to how a cellphone works. Thus, much like with a cellphone, a connection can be made at the discretion of the user or the network carrier.

I say this never having seen one, on account of being stuck in a country that doesn't have the Kindle hardware yet. As such, this is just the way I've been lead to believe it works.

Yes i ment net.

After reading this for the first time i had that question. No one in quake seems to have one. You would figure that there would have to be some kind of law saying you cant connect to someones property like that and delete the content they paid for without there permission.

I dont think they would do.I buy from Amazon re-sellers all the time. I haven't had any more (or less) problems with them than I've had with any other internet vendors.Recently I came to know that there is a website named AmazingWatcher.Com which is a free website that will “watch” items for you on Amazon and let you know when amazon has them in stock at regular retail price.It got so awesome!
Good luck everybody! :D -Link Removed-

They thought I was a madman when I said that the Eugenics plan would work, but I knew it would lead to this!

I approved this one earlier, and it came up clean on all the scans! Now the only problem lays in the inherent difficulties of harnessing them for the Good of the Forum.

So we want this one to breed with usagirl in such a way as to get this one's syntax and usagirl's mileage.

Fool, do not discuss such matters in public! The project must be discussed in utmost discretion if it is to be discussed at all, like Fight Club.

If you're looking at the New York Times bestseller list,Then you go for amazon.com which is the best seller in USA.I buy from Amazon re-sellers all the time. I haven't had any more (or less) problems with them than I've had with any other internet vendors.

Actually, Johnny, we were looking for Tyler. Does your site help us find him?

You're implying that they are no better than anyone else?
