I'm trying to get some sense out of Win 10. Most importantly, I don't want to go anywhere near Chrome

Christ knows! I'm still stuck and the last thing I ever want to do is get entangled with Chrome any more: I hate it, believe me.

Nothing, I don't think. Same old nothing as always. If I click post, will this go anywhere? Anywhere that means anything? I'll try it...

We're having trouble with the Marion Council. They've lied to us but then deny it. I hate liars. And imposters. My honey and I met with the CEO and told him what was going on. Their lies have already cost us thousands of dollars. Bureaucrats and councils seem to be birds of a feather...16/12/16

I've been reading Ted Hughes, by Jonathan Bate. It's interesting but I've still got three or four hundred pages of it to go. The Author attended Adelaide Writers' Week recently and I gather he's been knighted now

I've just commented. Perhaps I should have added that if anyone should feel moved to buy any of my books -- I've got hundreds --  you could buy them from me for a song. Don't waste your hard-earned money by buying from the big swindlers...Dave

Good luck with your writing, Pippa. I hesitate to tell you this, not wanting to be the fly in the ointment. Have you heard of Andre Schiffrin, by any chance? There's an interview with him if you look out ' The White Review' on Google. It should be required reading for aspiring writers; well worth the half hour or so of anyone's time it might take.
My name's Dave Diss. I'm the author of three volumes of autobiography: Dizzy, 2005; Creatures of Our Time, in a Land fit for Heroes, 2006, and Australia Ahoy, 2009.
I've seen Dizzy offered for sale for around $2,000; Coot (9 my shorthand for Creatures etc), for $57 (reg price), and Australia Ahoy, for a modest $20 odd.
They should all be available through public libraries, but even in South Australia, where I write, they're getting chucked out and sold for a dollar or so in the slush piles.
I should be chuffed if you and your mates would look them out and have a bit of a read. I promise you you would like them...

What's new? Well, the house for a start. I'm back trying Windows 10. Before that I tried Windows 8, and couldn't stand it, took it back and got a refund, swearing I'd never touch it again with a bargepole.
I know people enjoy reading my stuff in Google books, because they leave their footprints and finger marks behind. I must. It's my own clumsiness and impatience that causes me not to make a brass razoo out of it, so I've got a deal of repair work to do with Dizzy, and Creatures of Our Time, in a Land fit for Heroes, and ditto with Australia Ahoy as well.
I must apologise to all those would-be purchasers whose buy clicks disappointed them...
