    This may sound stupid, but how do you get e-books on to your computer, apart from downloading them from kazza? If someone could post a "how to" guide (like in the other forums) it would be soooooo helpful!

    Thanks!

    Well, if you don't download them off Kazaa (or another P2P network), there are a few websites that have them for download.

    You can also scan your own books and OCR them, although it takes some time.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t

    Thanks MN!!

    I don't fancy scanning all of my books! It'll take about 20 years!
    I'll just stick to kazza i think.

    i have scaned a few books and it is a bit...... hard thing to do

    first off they dont scan woth a damm unless u tear or cut out each page and lay them flat on the scaner so it destroys the book

    and all so i used text bridge to OCR them and it had a lot of mistakes on a few of them but most of them worked all right it seemed to have troble with small text ons but did a good job on the books with reguler size text

    my main problem with it was losing the book when i did it

    where a palm is not bad it realy hard to curl up in bed with a good monitor so i still keep my books besides a lot of them are 1st editions all though there just paper backs i cant bring my self to destroy them
