  1. Is anyone savvy with Adobe Digital Editions, who can answer a question about them and Windows Explorer?

    It's driving me crazy that my ADE files don't show the cover of the book, only a generic ADE thumbnail.

    Does anyone know how to fix this so that the covers show up on the file in Windows Explorer? I'm still using Windows 7.

  2. For all you Keeping Up With Appearances fans, Patricia Routledge is now a Dame!

      Finally!! So well deserved!!   :D:wub:

  3. Serena Williams is engaged!

     

  4. Everyone's talking about doping of athletes in Russia but this is every bit as disturbing, moreso really.

     

    H.I.V. Cases Surpass a Million in Russia, but Little Is Done

  5. Tiger Woods is trying to say his kids made him pose for that shirtless Santa baby pic but we know he's just on the prowl, looking for a lady to share that next $5 footlong.

  6. Someone just mentioned that both Liberals and Conservatives can agree on their mutual disgust with Lena Dunham.:lol:

      Taylor Swift is a feminist? But then I thought all women this day and age believed in the tenets of feminism without labeling it such. No?

      No, all women are not feminists. Not even close. Look no further than the Presidential election to see that. There are many women on the religious right who are anti feminist. I've tried to be patient with Lena. I think her heart is usually in the right place, but this is about the dumbest thing I have ever heard her say and that's saying a lot. Just disgusting.

      See, I don't think those female Trump voters aren't feminist. They are just something else first.

  7. OMG, Czech tennis player Petra Kvitova injured in a knife attack!

      WTF?!  How terrible. 

    2. DRW50

      DRW50

      How awful. Someone posed as a gas man to get into her home? 

    3. ChitHappens

      ChitHappens

      Yep. She's a really sweet person so I hope they can save her hand. 

      She's a lefty and must've been fighting back primarily with that hand. Feel so terrible for her. 

  8. And the judge in the Brock Turner case was cleared of misconduct over his light sentence.

     

    What. a. day.

  9. I had forgotten that Christine Lagarde had been Dominique Strauss Kahn's replacement. Oof, I'd forgotten how message French politics is!

    1. Cat

      Message or messy? lol

       

      Yes, it is, but DSK's proclivities were particularly messy and were rightly exposed. I know the stereotype is of the average French citizen who doesn't care about his politicians' private lives, but this was a sordid story and many I know were shocked. 

    2. DramatistDreamer

      DramatistDreamer

      Yikes, I meant messy!  Yes, I agree, DSK was particularly eggregious and he got off lightly.

       

      In terms of the IMG, it is now being discussed that perhaps the next leader should not only be non-French but be someone outside of Europe. 

    3. Cat

      Perhaps that would be best. Maybe someone from Asia, say Singapore, where they keep budget deficits low and have a culture of saving...

  10. Remind me to stop feeling sorry for 86 year old ladies who won't stop robbing jewelry stores.:unsure:

  11. People who deny being trolls but when you say the word "Troll" they answer to the name.:lol::rolleyes:

      LMAO! If it looks, walks, and quacks like a duck... it must be an... elephant? :lol:

  12. Apparently Verizon is interested in buying CBS. Hold on to your hats, everybody!

    Verizon has expressed interested in CBS Corporation:

      Given their declining fortunes CBS would probably be better off. I just hope this would mean Moonves is gone. 

  13. I no longer subscribe to cable, so I don't get A&E but I do know that Kirstie Alley is getting dragged on social media after trying to come for Leah Remini about her new show exposing Scientology. Apparently, Alley was trying to urge people to boycott and most people responded by saying "NO":lol:

  14. :( RIP Ron Glass, best known for his work on Barney Miller.

      It's terrible isn't it? Wasn't it just yesterday that Florence Henderson passed?! No time to even digest the sadness.

    1. DRW50

      That's hilarious. I love how annoyed a few of those guys clapping are...

  15. Apparently WPIX found footage of the original Yule Log from 1966, which they thought was lost forever. They will be airing that footage this year. As a soap fan, I can't help but cling to some hope.

    1. ~bl~

      ~bl~

      That is great news that they found some of the 1966 Yule Log. I hope they'll have it online for those who saw it years ago, but no longer are in the WPIX viewing area.

    2. beebs

      beebs

      Is it not really sad that there's more excitement about a still image of a log than of a widely-loved television show? Just because it happens to be female-targeted drama? What does that say about us as a society?

      Anyway, that IS really cool, and I hope they run it this year. I have fond memories of the yearly yule log for us folks without fireplaces! Haha.

      beebs what show are you talking about? Gilmore Girls?

      Aaaaaargh! God, I hope not!

  17. So the Boycott Hamilton hashtag was misspelled? BoycottHamiton.:lol:

  18. R.I.P. Gwen Ifill. This year continues to get worse.:(

  19. Embed feature doesn't seem to work all the time.  It worked yesterday but not today.

      @Errol Please get rid of the reputations on people's names.

      Your post was an hour after mine.  Maybe it was back to working again since then?

    3. Errol

      • Is this issue now working? I made no changes to the system since the upgrade just to be clear.

       

      • I can remove the reputations.
  20. I do like the feature that highlights the word or phrase in magenta when you move your mous over it.:D

  21. This damn hurricane is unrelenting!  Just as it weakens, it's on the verge of strengthening again!

      im still waiting for this nonentity.

      Sadly, for people in Haiti and Cuba, it's far from a nonentity.:(

    3. Cheap21

      Cheap21

      damn. I havent kept up with it. Just know that people have been making a big deal about it here and all we had was a little rain with no signs of a big storm, yet

  22. Is it terrible to say that I'm not shocked by the latest Brangelina development? 

    1. DRW50

      DRW50

      I've gotten that vibe for a year or two now.
