    Feel free to add on what I might have missed in my delirium.

    Various File Formats You May Come Across

    .rtf - "Rich Text Format" This is one of the main types of files you'll
    likely come across, as any word processor can open it, and most
    of the structure remains intact.
    .pdf - You'll need Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Acrobat Reader to open these up. Also very commonly used.
    .txt - Plain text file. No fancy formating here.
    .doc - Microsoft Word Document. Depending on the version, it may be able
    to be opened with Microsoft Works.
    .lit - These are usually used by people who have Tablet PCs, Palm Pilots, etc. I've never personally used one.
    .htm - These usually have hyperlinks for fast accessibility to certain
    passages. Opens in a browser.

    About Reading E-Books on Palm Pilot by JPaul

    I use CSpotRun to read these, this is able to read *.prc files. Those who own a Palm or similar will know what that means.

    I use a program called MakeDocW to convert *.txt files to *.prc. This works really well and is simple to use. However if you are using xp it needs to run the prog in compatability mode.

    It's a free download you can get it at:

    If the book I want is not in *.txt format I use word to open the file and then convert it to *.txt. MakeDocW then converts to *.prc and I can install on the Palm.

    As the files are not very big this is all very quick and easy.

    Standard Labeling of eBook Files

    Well, there are actually quite a few standards for labeling eBook files. One really isn't any better than the other. This is QuietSilence!'s method, because I'm too lazy to write out mine.


    (Authour Last Name) (First Name) (Initials) - (Series and #) - (Title)

    Card, Orson Scott - Ender's Saga 1 - Ender's Game.txt


    (Collection Name) - (Authour Last Name) (First Name) (Initials) - (Series and #) - (Title)

    Dragonlance - Weis, Margaret & Hickman, Tracy - Legends Vol 1 - Time of the Twins.rtf


    (Subject) - (Collection) - (Authour Last Name) (First Name) (Initials) - (Series and #) - (Title)

    RPG - AD&D - 2nd ed Complete Set of 26 Books.pdf

    Reading eBooks

    Just a list of programs that can be used to read eBooks.

    .pdf - Adobe Acrobat, Adobe Acrobat Reader
    .lit - Microsoft Reader
    .txt - YPager, Notepad, Wordpad, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Works
    .rtf - Notepad, Wordpad, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Works
    .htm - IE, Netscape, Opera

    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

    depths of threads, but it will forever last as pinned.
    Woah, maybe i shouldnt try to talk like that....
