Re: Run 10,000 miles

11.1 + 10.2 = 20.3 miles over the last couple of days. I've got a pretty sharp pain between my heel and ankle though, when I walk or run. I'm figuring I've been getting into it again too hard after being out for a few years. I've also been given new shoes recently -- could that be the culprit? Any a...

Re: Run 10,000 miles

Good idea restarting! I ran this morning. Trying to work to the point where I'm hitting 10km on a morning 3 or 4 days a week...halfway there. Looking forward to contributing this time around :)

3.2 + 3.7 = 6.9 miles.

Re: Kindle 3 cases

Didn't realise I'd forgotten to update here - I got the lighted case at Christmas, too. The case's weight was certainly unexpected. A quick kitchen-scales measurement shows it to be more or less the same weight as the kindle itself (case is 10 grams lighter), so I do notice it when I'm reading. I do...

Re: The 50 book challenge

I think I'll struggle with this. I love to read, but never seem to find time to, and can't fathom why.
However! Promised myself I'd do this over 2011. Here goes, right? I've done Machine Of Death and now I'm halfway through Nemesis by Asimov. Count me in!

Butterscotch Sauce Basically what it sounds like. Good with sticky date pudding (I may put it up eventually). 250g butter. Butter, not low fat butter, but but- but-- butter. 250 mL cream 400g brown sugar. Definitely brown. 1. Put butter and cream in saucepan. 1b. Turn heat on... etc. 2. When cream ...

Re: Kindle 3 cases

I'd thought similar based on the screenshots of the case. I'd like to try one out if I can, but I fear that'll be some time coming, as I can't get my hands on a Kindle 'till Christmas anyway and I have to assume John Lewis will actually let me try them out! Good to hear the E-Ink display is still qu...

Re: Kindle 3 cases

Thanks Hurt. Good to know the Amazon case is of quality! Shame about the expense is all, though sounds like it wasn't a bad choice.
Certainly prefer the hinging.
In hindsight, would you have gotten a light, or do you find it isn't much of a hindrance?

Kindle 3 cases

It's that time of year again, and I've managed to convince the parents that a Kindle would be a good thing to got for Christmas :D settled - but the Amazon cases are £30+! Anyone out there got a kindle 3 with a case other than an Amazon one, and if so what d'ya make of it? Would you have gone for an...
