Re: [Smashwords] What happened?

I'm still here too, checking in every morning to see if there is anything new, but there very seldom is. I too wonder what has happened! It seemed like things were off to a pretty good start, but then things just kind of died.

Re: [BIZ] Business versus Hobby

I am sorry that your aspirations are not as lofty as they once were. Let's see, where was I when I was 54 and what was I doing? Okay, that was 2001. I left NYC, working as a temp for Deutsche Bank and went to Japan to teach English. In December of that year, I met the love of my life and we are now ...

Heck no!!! I'm 69 and will be 70 in another 18 days and I AM NOT AN OLD MAN! My God, 54 years young is still a spring chicken! You should be out chasing girls (or guys, whatever you choose) at a mere 54 years old!

Re: [CS] CreateSpace - Barcodes

Thanks for that Sarah. I went to IS and through a chat, I managed to get the promotional code and joined the IBPA for free (at least for 3 months). Now I just downloaded the IBPA Members Benefit Handbook and even found the promotional code to allow me to upload new and modified files. Thanks again! ...

Re: [CS] CreateSpace - Barcodes

Thank you R.C., so it appears that this is only for Australian Publishers. Is there a similar one in the USA that I can join so that I no longer have to pay IS setup fees? Do you know?

Re: [FORMATTING] B&W Illustrations (not photos)

Select the image in Word and save it to a .png image. If you are talking about copy from Word (Ctrl C) and paste into Photoshop (Ctrl V) then it's going to be 72 dpi - screen resolution. When you open a B/W image in Photoshop it should NOT open as RGB. I would make sure that the images are saved as...

Re: [spam] how to deal

Is there a way to make banned members disappear from the "members" list?

Re: [spam] how to deal

I just deleted a SPAM, despite it being summer here in Alaska. I went to ban the member who posted it and my board showed that he/she/it is already in the process of being banned. Walton, do you have any idea how long it takes for the actual banning to take place, is it a "couple of hours" process, ...
