Question re file size and download: Do I need to change it? Is anybody having trouble? Let me know!

Sifting the various input, download difficulties due to the size of the file are posing a formidable challenge to some users on some systems. As a ‘gateway’ problem, this turns people away before we can get them through the door to help them with any other problems, so it concerns me.

How to read e-books on your computer…

This for those of you who’ve never done this…help and comments via questions are welcome.

What a day!

I did get some writing done, amid all the chaos, Lynn’s been working on Joomla! through two serious personal crises and says she’s really close to testing; we got the bug fixed and I ousted 2 spammers from our midst. If your user name is ILoseWeightAskMe, you’re toast.
