Shazzam! • 3 August 2008 • The SnowBlog


At last, a vaguely book-related post. Don't you love firmware updates? No? Well, my Sony e-book reader has a firmware update available for it and another due soon. So I download a file, load it onto the reader, and then it can do things it couldn't do before. Such as 1) reflow PDFs and 2) work with books stored in the .epub format. So without spending any money, I have a more capable device than before. (And yes, I know that it would have been nice if those features had been available from the start).


The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
