Re: Calling from Utrecht, Netherlands

Good evening Scanty, I am from Rotterdam and I also (still) need to build my scanner. Since I am (again) unemployed I will have more time to dig into the matter. What I need/want to build is the scanner from Daniel, but the most difficult part is to obtain the Gorilla Glass here in the Netherlands. ...

Re: Updated: DIY E-book Creator 0.0.8

Thank you for all your effort. I hope this summer I can start using it. Lucky you did French, because also the German language has strange letters not seen in English. What to think of the Scandinavian languages.Or even Russian and Greek.

Re: No wiki?

Re: All threads that mention LiveCD/Linux development

Nobody seems interested in one, so no. If enough people actually want a LiveCD I can start building one, though. Well since I don't know how to build my own livecd I have to rely on people like you and snagit to tell me what to do. See my suggestions on page 1 for packages to include. I have been l...
