It scares me how I read fast.
Now, I'll admit to have read Lord of the Rings nine times... but Salem's Lot fifteen times? Isn't there a library nearby or something?

Re: What book are you currently reading?

I just finished reading Leap of Faith -Danielle Steel the other day.. I liked it, because I have an obsession for obsessive love stories... lolol. And then I started reading her other book called Matters of the heart and I was pissed! It was pretty much the same story-line as the other book! Although I liked it until I realized it xD But I didn't want to read the same shit all over again, so yeah :/ tsk tsk

Re: What book are you currently reading?

Book Twelve is done. Book Thirteen: Towers of Midnight is... "in transit." Damn library. Well, only took me 5 months to pretty well catch up. I was able to go read all those posts you guys discussed when I was reading book one. Amusing.

Anyway, while I wait, I am going to start another series, The Darkwar Saga by Raymond E. Feist. Book One: Flight of the Nighthawks.

Also, heard some good news. Book Two of the Kingkiller Chronicles is due out March 1. This is a trilogy being written by Patrick Rothfuss. Book one was Name of the Wind, book two is The Wise Man's Fear. It is a great series. I have been awaiting book two more than anything from WoT and probably at least just as much as book six of Song of Fire and Ice. Highly recommended.

Re: What book are you currently reading?

I should start to read "normal" books again sometime after my tests. I think I'll start with A Song of Ice and Fire, wanted to get that for some time now.
Thanks though, for all the other titles, I will look into them.

Re: What book are you currently reading?

Lately I've been reading some old school SF that I haven't previously read, mostly Jules Verne and H.G. Wells

Quotes for noobs (learn how to break up a quote)
Quote:

So you can post the second bit and i shouldnt be allowed to if i dont tell you? Why be so rude?

Anyways, here is a quotes for noobs guide


1. A basic quote

[*QUOTE][*/QUOTE]

(the * need to be removed for it to work, I put them in so you can see the text) is a basic quote that just wraps something in a quote without saying who quoted it who quoted so

[*QUOTE]this is a quote[*/QUOTE] without any * would look like
Quote:
this is a quote

Edit: there is a button for this, it looks like a speech bubble. If you select text and then press the button the selected text will automatically be wrapped with the quote tag


2. A quote that says who said it

[*QUOTE=who said it][*/QUOTE] this adds who said the post, manually putting that there can be useful when quoting something external. Example:

[*QUOTE=Mangastream]Remember all you sexy bastards out there, Naruto, Bleach, OP, FT, etc. all on break this week. Feel free to take your rage out on us[*/QUOTE] without any * would look like
Quote:
Originally Posted by Mangastream

3. A quote that says who said it and links to the post where it was said

[*QUOTE=who said it;X][*/QUOTE]

Where X is the post number.

For the post that i originally quoted it would look like this

[*QUOTE=minato uchiha;2118164]Ok Stubborn donkey, how do you break it up please and if your not willingly to tell me, then please DONT offer me no advice in future[*/QUOTE]

That is what you get when you press the quote button.

4. Breaking up a quote

Now that you know how quotes work it all boils down to preference, how you want it to look like and how you want to do it.

One way of doing it is copying the latter part of the original quote [*/QUOTE] and then pasting it after each section you break up, write your reply, choose the text you want then paste it after that portion, repeat till you finish the go back and copy then paste the first part of the text at the beginning of each portion of text. Of course you can immediately copy and paste both parts of a poste so that you dont forget one in the end.

The end result would be something like this

[*QUOTE=minato uchiha;2118164]Ok Stubborn donkey,[*/QUOTE]
My reply 1
[*QUOTE=minato uchiha;2118164] how do you break it up please[*/QUOTE]
my reply 2
[*QUOTE=minato uchiha;2118164]and if your not willingly to tell me, [*/QUOTE]
my reply 3
[*QUOTE=minato uchiha;2118164]then please DONT offer me no advice in future[*/QUOTE]
my reply 4



Which without any * would look like

Another way of doing it would be to cut and paste the second part of the quote tag after the first section of text you want to seperate then write your reply select the second part and hit he quote button (it looks like a text bubble),if you do that without anything else the end result would be

[*QUOTE=minato uchiha;2118164]Ok Stubborn donkey,[*/QUOTE]
My reply 1
[*QUOTE] how do you break it up please[*/QUOTE]
my reply 2
[*QUOTE]and if your not willingly to tell me, [*/QUOTE]
my reply 3
[*QUOTE]then please DONT offer me no advice in future[*/QUOTE]
my reply 4

Which would look like

my reply 4

To make it like the previous example (which wpuld be preferred, though not necessary ) copy the part that says who posted with the link to the post and paste it accordingly to the proper part in each first half of each quote tag. In my I would copy =minato uchiha;2118164 and paste it where the # is
[*QUOTE#] to get [*QUOTE=minato uchiha;2118164] (of course with the * removed)


Of course you can use any other method you like to get to the end result, but now that you know what the end rwsult looks like I think there shouldnt be any problems

Re: What book are you currently reading?

^ Most people who've read it are divided between love and hate on that one. I'm interested to hear your take once you are done.

Now reading: Darkwar Saga, Book 2: Into a Dark Realm by Raymond E. Feist.

Honestly cant get enough of the book, that's why I read it so much. Doesnt mean I dont read other books. I just read that book whenever I have nothing better to read.

And speaking of which on Indigo Blues now.

Re: What book are you currently reading?

I haven't read a proper novel in a while. The last thing I read was ... sheesh. I can't even remember. I've classically been a sci-fi and fantasy fan.

Re: What book are you currently reading?

Hey, I don't know that I'd say fantasy novels aren't "proper" novels. There are a lot of well written, great fantasy works, just as there are a lot of terrible "proper" novels. Just need to be picky. Also, depends if you can read a book about real people who don't have to go battling the evil forces of darkness. ;-)

Oh, no, I didn't mean to imply that they aren't proper novels. What I meant was that I haven't read in a while what one would describe as a full novel, and then made an aside that I mainly read sci-fi and fantasy.

Sorry for the confusion, haha.
