January 29th

I really wish I started writing something on each of my special day much earlier. I had even thought about it. But me and my procrastination . . . . .

Anyway, I am going to try the next best thing possible – thin of each of the year in the past and try to recall what was going thru me at that time. I’m sure I will be leaving out a lot – since this is more publicly available. But I should put enough in here so that I can later recall what was going through. The more recent years I should be able to recall more easily – since  have pictures ;~)

Nook Books

I finally decided to get a eBook – “Programming Amazon Web Services”. The initial search led me to believe that

But once I decided to get it and started looking for my options I soon realized:

  • Nook Reader is not compatible with OS X v10.8 or above (I am currently on v10.9)
  • It is supposed to support iOS (both iPhone and iPad), but the book does not even show up on my Nook reader app on my iPhone

So, basically the very first eBook I really wanted to get – I am unable to because B&N / Nook has not kept up with Software updates 😦

A lot of these are from Triple D and other Food Network Shows and I have a separate list of them, but a few are that I have picked from friends and other sources.

Here’s a list of places I learned about from my friends.

My Wishlists

Of the many things that are on my wishlist, one that is always on my mind is – to get my blog posts updated properly. I start too many posts / topics but have yet to finish any one of them 😦

While I work on that, I would like to someday like to learn to bake – cakes, breads, pastries and other desserts. I can’t really cook, but am able to follow a recipe for the most part. And if I do make a mistake, I am able to recover for the most part.

If I could write a book that other’s would find interesting – And if none of the above ever gets done but
