Ha, I still have two of those.  I still use one every few years for some 
books I only have electronically (Almost all of Weber's _Honor 
Harrington_ stuff :-) in Mobi format.

I guess I should figure out how to do Mobi on my Mini9.  Hummm, looks like:
	calibre  - e-book converter and library management
	fbreader - e-book reader

I *love* Ubuntu...  Two minutes to find, research, install and start 
using no-cost, malware-free, open-source applications to do anything you 
want.  (I recently tried to read some x-ray and MRI images in DICOM 
format.  Yup, there's an app for that.  Several, actually.  Built-in 
(more-or-less).  Have I mentioned I love Ubuntu (and Debian)?)

Let's hear it for Big Hair Bands!  For some reason in Winter of 1988 I 
spent a lot of time driving in heavy snow listening to _Slipper When 
Wet_.  So I still sometimes hear "Livin' on a Prayer" as if from my 
Civic's (yes, it was a stick :) tape deck when driving in heavy snow now.

OK, I will stop dating my self now...
