Greetings to all Superheroes and Super Criminals out in cyberspace:

I wanted to let everyone know that, after almost 2 and 1/2 years of waiting, delays, and other problems, the latest... from my warped mind have finally gone "live" on Amazon and are available for purchase through Amazon books.

www.amazon.com/Shift-Clr-Home-8-Bit-Thoughts-GigaBit/dp/1546363866/ref=sr_1_fkmrnull_1?keywords=Shift-Clr%2FHome%3A+More+8-Bit+Thoughts+In+A+GigaBit+World&qid=1553437659&s=gateway&sr=8-1-fkmrnull

..."Shift-Clr/Home: More 8 Bit Thoughts In A Gigabit World" is my second compilation book on bits, tips, and articles that I've written over the last few years and have been previously presented in various Commodore computer publications throughout the world. This book is designed to appeal to the Commodore user and non-Commodore user alike. Many have enjoyed my first book [Run/Stop-Restore: 10th Anniversary Edition] and have eagerly awaited the second. Now it is finally here and available...

[The] book runs $14.95 each. Your support of my work is greatly appreciated.

Thank you again to everyone for your patience as I tried to make [this] as close to brickhouse perfect as possible. I'm sure that those with a keen eye may find more mistakes than I did.

Please enjoy... Now it's off to work on the next book...

Why are so many people shooting themselves in the foot, choosing Amazon.com to market their latest and greatest? Don't you all realize how many of us C= user refuse to deal with the devil (Amazon.crap). Good luck anyway. I may have enjoyed the read.......

I do believe on demand printing, combined with huge platform which a lot of people already are customers to, are decisive factors. Not sure if Amazon's margins are lower than other publishers but their sheer volume and brand recognition probably makes them a first hand choice. However as noted those books tend to trickle into other resellers as well after a while.

I hope you didn't damage your little brain thinking that one up. Amazon is the reason, I don't deal with them. Usually this isn't a problem, and actually saves me money.

BTW - I ride a bike that will easily top 170mph - to just give you an idea how far off your assumptions are. Always dangerous assuming things......

Oh please ... Like Amazon is any worse than any other huge mega corporation. Actually there are MANY far worse than Amazon!

 

Let me list the three worst in my opinion:

 

1) Monsanto Company -- filthy rich off of agent orange, DDT, PCB, Round Up and other nasty well known chemicals and agents (https://www.collective-evolution.com/2014/10/07/monsantos-dirty-dozen-the-12-most-awful-products-made-by-monsanto )

 

2) Union Carbide Corporation -- largest industrial accident in world (https://www.theatlantic.com/photo/2014/12/bhopal-the-worlds-worst-industrial-disaster-30-years-later/100864/)

 

3) IBM -- hit me personally as those bastards contaminated my home in a city I lived in upstate NY a few decades ago and IBM tried to hide/cover up / blame other companies for decades!!! (https://www.pressconnects.com/story/news/local/2019/03/03/ibm-endicott-toxic-plume-cost/3018697002 )

 

All three clearly more awful to the world than Amazon and the list can go on and on ...
