Did you leave him a vague, mildly inaccurate, cryptic map to this place?

Y'know, ingrate that I am, I took his good wishes and his quote from Dylan Thomas and ran. If I can still post, I'll go back to "Da Gas" and give him a little sumtin.

Maybe it just means that YOU don't have any friends.

That's what I take away from it, anyways.


message 16: by Mean Mr. Mustard (new)

Mean Mr. Mustard (scotticus) | 347 comments One thing this closing of forums has shown is what a curmudgeonly (Look it up, I'll wait) group of people are on our beloved Ammie. All of this "I'll never buy from Amazon again!!". Really?

Really, beloved? You are a snarky monkey.

Ok, I need to know. Are you calling me "beloved" or questioning my usage of the word?

That's illegal in this state.


message 22: by Carbonbased (new)

Carbonbased | 100 comments And the oft repeated, "D/PD thread makes Ammy a tunno Monet!"
Yeah, right. Waiting for a book to drop to a buck before you'll buy is just what any retailer wants to encourage.

Wait. That thread makes Monet's for Amazon? They really are stupid to get rid of it?

Unless they are spending a million bucks I doubt Ammie even cares.

Princess (PrincessNatalia) | 7 comments Before handguns are banned, I killed off my friends. Does this mean they can't see me or that I can't seem them.

Mean Mr. Mustard (scotticus) | 347 comments It means you’re invisible to yourself.

Mean Mr. Mustard (scotticus) | 347 comments Does anyone else want to buy the new Oasis really bad?

Teddygrace | 18 comments Mean Mr. Mustard wrote: "Does anyone else want to buy the new Oasis really bad?"

Or is that " really bad new Oasis"? Having enough trouble with the Fires right now. But my application was accepted to be one of the 1st buyers of whatever that gadget is that can see you, tells you what you should be wearing instead of what you have on - and where to buy it on Amazon. No, I'm not buying one!


message 36: by Mean Mr. Mustard (last edited Oct 13, 2017 02:17PM) (new)

Mean Mr. Mustard (scotticus) | 347 comments The Oasis is not a Fire,it's a Kindle. Notable improvements: 32GB storage, Audiobooks capability, bluetooth, and waterproof.

If that reply was for me, I knew it isn't a Fire, just meant I've got enough trouble with my Fires that I can't think of buying any device at all right now. Should have said that!

No problem. I've already ordered mine. I feel fairly confident since this is the second version of the Oasis, and generally the Kindles, or E-Ink readers, have fewer problems than the tablets. One thing I forgot to mention about the new Oasis is that it is 7" instead of 6".


message 39: by Carbonbased (new)

Carbonbased | 100 comments Hmm...$400 by the time you load it up. I'm betting the current Oasis cover won't fit, given the larger screen. I'd like the Bluetooth for audio, but right now I carry a 7" Fire for that and podcasts.


message 40: by Carbonbased (new)

Carbonbased | 100 comments Maybe I'm not looking hard enough, but it seems like they've given up on the divided battery...no mention of storage in the cover, although they've retained the oddly shaped back. I don't see a pic that shows where the connection is on the current Oasis.


message 41: by Mean Mr. Mustard (new)

Mean Mr. Mustard (scotticus) | 347 comments No, the battery is not in the case any more. You can buy one of Amazons cases or wait for a 3rd party case.


message 42: by Mean Mr. Mustard (new)

Mean Mr. Mustard (scotticus) | 347 comments The storage is also on board, not in the case.

Carbonbased | 100 comments Mean Mr. Mustard wrote: "The storage is also on board, not in the case."

Sorry, I meant power storage. Data storage, 8 or 32, is clearly inside...no mention of an SD card.

I see under Accessibility; they've caved to customer demand and are offering white on a black screen.


message 48: by Mean Mr. Mustard (new)

Mean Mr. Mustard (scotticus) | 347 comments They apparently caved on several things. It plays audiobooks, has increased storage, is waterproof, and has the battery back on board where it belongs.

Thank you for feeding my gadget addiction. Heigh-ho, wallet, awaaaay!
