Huh. I'm not sure what genre or category (on the left side of the screen) you were looking at, but the categories I checked before posting this had no romance books. I looked at these genres and their categories: Computers and Technology, Travel, Arts and Photography, Reference, and Biographies & Memoirs.
The landing page has a lot of romance novels though, that's for sure.

I think their classification system is jumbled, but the categories and sub-categories are more reflective of the topic.

You could check the Mystery, Thriller & Suspense category for some of those authors, but I'm not sure that any of them would ever show up in the free category. Lee Child (Jack Reacher), Michael Connelly (Harry Bosch) and Robert Crais (Elvis Cole) are all popular authors. I've don't think I've ever seen popular and best-selling authors in the free category, and I've seen only a few authors at that level show up in discounted books. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Amazon's eBooks are downloaded in their propietary format, though they can converted to ePub on the web or using a program like Calibre.

Best Free Firewall Protection 3 months 1 week ago Grey Luddite

Your analogy is akin to "If you can't work through the electronics interface in your 2015 Impreza, you would be better off trading in for a 2019 Volvo." That is, trade the limited sequence of options to set and learn (and then decide whether to keep) a basic FREE Firewall, versus making an entire continental leap to a potentially advantageous OS, but with well-known HUGE learning curves, that in the end might or might not solve networking or security issues, but which will definitely result in weeks if not seasons' worth of effective computer down time while you laboriously and tediously try to figure out the damn Linux galaxy.
I have found it far easier to just use Free Macrium Reflect image software to back up my entire Drive, at least the OS related partitions, then try stuff out without worries. Windows system restore is notoriously inconsistent, regarding what does and does not get properly restored. FWIW, I'm about to dump the Online Armor Firewall I've used to protect an old XP machine, because it unchecks the Trusted box of my Broadcom ethernet controller with every reboot, and constantly pops up alerts about program behaviors that are impossible to distinguish from valid, necessary ones. SpyShelter is another overbearing, overprotective layer that constantly invokes paranoia, without meaningful differentiation regarding actual threat levels from myriad processes. I last paid for a firewall and backup software when tape drives were the benchmark, and both failed when needed. VPN or hardened firewalls may be necessary when using a PC on public WiFi, but for home use within a router-based personal network, Windows Firewall and Security Essentials have worked fine for Win 7 going on ten years.

Using Windows 7 And Linux On The Same Computer 3 months 2 weeks ago stevenfbtube

I would install Ubuntu using the 'something-else' option, specifying your partitions & ensuring you don't have the 'format' check-box ticked.
This will wipe system directories, install then restore any additional programs you have installed (if from Ubuntu repose only). If your 'breakage' is in $HOME (a user setting) then the breakage will likely remain as that file won't be touched. Of course backup first (we make mistakes, and the format-checkbox is kinda small).

I looked for some very old 78 rpm jazz records my brother had, and found some of them! Many of those have also been published on cd's.
I noticed that you could listen to (and download) the full recordings in the Boston catalogue, but when searching in the archive.org collection, I could only hear the first minute (of the usual 3 min.s) in the recordings I tested.

I'm probably not as selective. I have a few add-ons that are staples, others come and go. At the moment I'm liking add-ons that get rid of overlays.
I consider the large overlays that pop up when you move the mouse and block much of the screen offensive (I don't mind small ones) and it's not always clear how to close it, which makes it more offensive.
Ctrl + W (close window) has become one of my most used keyboard shortcuts since they started proliferating.
If a large overlay pops up, I have to really want to view the page content to get rid of it and stay on the page, otherwise that window gets closed in heartbeat with the keyboard shortcut.   ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I'm not clear on what you mean "mine data from all type of Google sources". Could you be more specific about your concerns and what kind of data you see them mining?
I'm asking because I read the whole Privacy Policy before I wrote up the article and if I missed something I would like to know so I can amend the article.

There's a mention in this article that they do ask for permission for some services. I didn't check all the services because I don't use most of them, so if they are asking for permission to mine personal data or doing something else that violates personal privacy in another service I would very much like to know about it so I can warn people.

The add-on does ask for permissions so it can access some Google services - if it didn't have those permissions it wouldn't be able to function. As far as I can tell, it doesn't collect more data than is needed for the correct functioning of the website and extensions. If I'm in error, I would appreciate knowing about it.

Specifics can be found in the Privacy Policy.

Learn How to Use the Windows Registry Editor (Regedit) in One Easy Lesson 3 months 3 weeks ago romario.rian

Throughout the years we've secured a lot of library hacks, and keeping in mind that a great many people can deal with the well-ordered guidelines for how to make a vault change, or double tap a .reg record to embed it into the vault, you will be vastly improved served to have a strong information of what the library is and how it functions. https://www.braindumps4it.com/braindumps-MS-101.html

The most imperative thing to think about the vault is that you likely shouldn't simply mess around and erase or change things for reasons unknown. Erasing a major segment of the library is never going to make your PC run quicker, and there's no vault hack that will accelerate your PC or give you some major new usefulness that doesn't exist.

Unblock Copy and Paste in Chrome and Firefox 4 months 3 days ago johnvk

Thanks for all that.
I'm using firefox, so I am not sure if there's a similar addon. I haven't searched.
I always go into developer tools Inspect using right-click -> Q. And right click was disabled. That stymied me for a while.
Thanks for reminding me that I don't have to be stymied by right click! (in this case) because ctrl-shift-C does it (as does in firefox the Tools menu -> developer -> Inspect).

Now on this particular webpage, the data I wanted to copy was in a table.
And the table was circuitously designed. The first column was its own div. And each cell was a whole table nested within several div layers. And the 2nd and 3rd columns were another div, and each row of the 2nd two columns was a table of 1 row and 2 columns, and again each of these tables nested within several layers of divs.

So without finding each cell individually and copying its text, this was not going to help. It was a page of code containing 1 word of text.

I saved using firefox Inspector's right click menu: copy -> outer html to copy this structure and paste it into a file (temp.html) then opened that file with firefox.

The complex html code was using positioning, so that the first column and second column were superimposed in my temp file (which was missing the css positioning). Kind of a mess.

So I resorted to capture2text which has been working well for me on windows 10.

Again thanks for the interaction around this! It's helpful!

Exactly rhiannon. This Chrome extension "Allow Select And Copy" works for me in most cases.

Thanks! I thought on most sites it has something to do with security but wasn't sure what.

Some sites that have content that's not particularly related to security use it.

Most of the ones I've run into are people wanting to protect their content such as photos, artwork etc. from being copied. I respect that.
I don't copy that type of content but I do copy snippets of text if there's a tip or trick or something useful. I keep it with the URL where I found it.
Disabling right click for that purpose isn't much of a deterrent because there are so many ways around it. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Unblock Copy and Paste in Chrome and Firefox 4 months 4 days ago johnvk

Thanks @rhiannon for the no-addon, about:config method.

I put "dom.event'" (no quotes) in the search box.

There's two I tried:

dom.event.clipboardevents.enabled
dom.event.contextmenu.enabled

I wasn't sure about the others.

For my financial site, this turned on right click but not copy.

If you're wondering like I was why you want to DISABLE these (when you're trying to get them working) it's because these enable the website code to see them. So hiding them from the website code leaves them for you to use. (I think.)

I gave up and used Windows "snipping tool" to capture an image of it, then capture2text, to OCR the image to text. That worked, but unfortunate I had to do it that way.

Good luck keeping control of your computer!

15 Tools to Diagnose Windows Problems 4 months 5 days ago Gil Mensch

Good stuff here. In the "15 Tools" article, the 14th utility is ESET System Inspector, but the link takes you to the 15th item which is a Microsoft Debug Diagnostic utility. You will need to google for the ESET utility in order to find it.

CM Security AppLock AntiVirus 4 months 6 days ago drbb01

The review of CM Security AppLock AntiVirus (last updated 25 May 2016) barely resembles the 2019 version I have. Not only has it added additional free features, it offers a VIP version for a monthly charge with even more features. Also, as mentioned in other comments, it is no longer ad-free. In fact, the free version immerses the user in highly obtrusive, occasionally alarming (e.g., "YOUR PHONE IS INFECTED! Click here.") and often political ads before AND after running any of its options. In any case, the current application bears little resemblance to the version reviewed almost three years ago. If you cannot conduct another full review, at least consider removing it as an Editors' Choice.

I have been using Blokada since this article came out and I am very impressed.
I rarely see any ads in my apps or in my browser and it does not cause any issues with any of the apps or browser.

If you have an Android, Blokada is a must have app.
I have told many of my friends and relatives about Blokada and all have been happy.

Thanks to Jojo Yee for this info.

Color Picker has been replaced by a different Mac App Store app called "Color Note" and a NEW Color Picker called "Just Color Picker" has been added. "Just Color Picker" works for Mac OS X, Or Windows Systems.
