Questions & feedback are welcome in the Comment areas (tho' spam is deleted). Thanks!


  1. Is there an app for the Kindle Fird HD 8.9 which does what the IPad note taker does? A pop up QWERTY keyboard which is very responsive. I would like to think the Kindle can do this.

    1. Ronald, I have no experience with the note taker for iPad, but if you have an 8.9" KFHD, try Evernote, which is free and very popular, at the Amazon appstore.


NOTE: TO AVOID SPAM being posted instantly, this blog uses the "DELAY" feature.

Am often away much of the day, and postings won't show up right away. Posts done to use referrer-links may never show up.

Usually, am online enough to release comments within a day though, so the hard-to-read match-text tests for commenting won't be needed this way.

Feedback and questions are welcome. Thanks for participating.

Technical Problems?
If you're having problems leaving a Comment, Google's blogger-help asks that you clear the '' cookies on your browser's Tools or Options menu bar and that will fix the Comment-box problems (until they have a permanent fix).

IF that doesn't work either, then UNcheck the "keep me signed in" box -- Google-help says that should allow your comment to post (it's a workaround to a current bug).
Apologies for the problems.

TIP: There's a size limit. If longer than 3500 characters or so, in a text editor, make two posts out of it.
