Finally, we have a week with decent temperatures during the day time. I hate ice. I know Marylanders are supposed to be deathly afraid of snow, but it's ice what does me in. ;) Snow has more traction -- well, compared to ice, that is.

I resurrected another story idea. I have to stop doing that. ;) This one is the fantasy story about the hero who pretends to be a cowardly (maybe even foppish) cad who is in reality on the side of the good guys. Sort of like "The Scarlet Pimpernel" but without the witty verse and all that, crossed with farcical elements from the soap opera "Passions" that made me laugh. I'll bet you never thought you would see "The Scarlet Pimpernel" and "Passions" mentioned in the same breath. :)

I also decided to start reading "The Scarlet Pimpernel." If I was going to be inspired by it, I might as well read it, right? ;) The structure wasn't at all what I expected, but it's still a lot of fun. Here is a very nice Scarlet Pimpernel fan site.

Oh, and let me put in a plug for the Palm doc reader iSilo. Sure, it wins an award for Weird Capitalization in tradename, and what [b]is[/b] an iSilo, anyway? But it's still great. I was reluctant to get it at first because you have to (gasp choke) pay for it. But I was sick of having to download e-books in the MobiPocket format from Blackmask.comwhen they had iSilo as an option. I asked people what it was like and downloaded the trial version, tried it, and then ended up buying it that same day. While there are still some aspects that are hard to get used to, many of its features are so much better organized. For example, most important of all, when you are in the list of documents, you can actually list only the documents that are in the Unfiled category! :-O While PalmReader allows that, newer versions of MobiPocket stopped doing that. (They may have brought that feature back, but I've had bad luck with Mobi upgrades, so I didn't try to find out.) It's also faster than MobiPocket, even when used with the storage card. Sure, PalmReader is still my favorite, but I also wish PalmReader's document list would work more like iSilo's. :)
