Just for the record - I read all the time, but prefer to read books on my Nook or phone, curled up somewhere comfy, but not sitting at my desk where my gaming PC is. The ergonomics are much more pleasant on the former rather than the latter, so I haven’t bothered to install add-ons to read yet another format, on a machine that’s dedicated to gaming. However, come to think of it, my new laptop which came with Win10 (ugh) probably has Edge, unless I uninstalled it along with all the other junk that came with it.
I choose Nook over Kindle with eyes wide open because I want brick and mortar book stores to survive. I knew full well when I made that decision that Barnes and Nobles can’t compete with Amazon. I love books that much. I have 12 bookcases in my house, and need more, although the Nook has helped a lot.
I’m also averse to downloading files and apps ■■■■■ nilly. I’ve only just recently allowed Acrobat to be installed, because I hate Adobe and the way it forces Flash to be installed. I’ll probably uninstall them again soon.
I may be lazy and paranoid, but I do read a lot and I don’t watch a lot of videos. ; )
I do appreciate your help here. It was daunting coming back after several years, so I’ve spent the last week or so playing brand new toons to help me get acclimated in an environment that was designed to do exactly that. I took your advice, looked for weak spots in my gear and upgraded them, then late last night tried the Nomad content. It took me a bit to figure out where to go, primarily because I couldn’t remember which of the zones was appropriate for my engineer. Of course, it was the last zone I checked, Mort, which has Nomads from 151-199. It was pretty easy so I could probably handle higher level stuff, but not the high end, so having to filter the mobs would slow me down, since all I was trying to do was complete the quest. Little did I know that you don’t really complete it. ; )
Better still, I was the only person in the zone at 3 am EST, so no player conflicts!
Thank you again, so much!
Edited note: That filter is funny.
Another edited note: Funny coincidence, I was taking a break from off loading a bookcase that’s blocking an electrical outlet on a circuit that has two others not working (but not all of them, weird) and found not one, but two copies of this Anarchy Online Official Strategy & Secrets, a result of getting married to, and hence combining households with, another former Anarchy Online player.
Oh, and another thing, then I’ll quit, I promise. I stole my username from my favorite fantasy book: The Forgotten Beasts of Eld
