Dr. Eve, Zombie Killer: Book 1
Dr. Eve, Zombie Killer: Book 1
Price: £4.55

4.0 out of 5 stars Really good, 4 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I just finished this book and really liked it. My sleep, work, and studies suffered somewhat because of this book though because I spent more time with it than I perhaps should have.

It was a nice change from the usual zombie stories and I eagerly await the next instalment. The things about it I didn't like though were typo's and spelling mistakes (unless they were deliberately changed to reflect various American accents), I know Earl and Salvo's speech were deliberately changed to reflect those people. I think it would have been better with a linked index, proper page numbers, and slightly improved typesetting as well. These are minor points though and should not be seen as a way to criticise the book.

I for one will certainly buy book 2.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice e-book, 8 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this last night and like it very much. I think it would be better if it had a few more links in it (such as the antonym give for each word included a link to that word). I'd also like to see a kind of thesaurus feature but maybe that would be more suited to a larger dictionary. But, seeing as it would probably have a big impact on the price it's fine without them.

For the price, I'd recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the investment, 25 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is well written and easy to understand. It starts off simple and builds from there.

Just remember to change the permissions of each script you run using chmod or to invoke the script from the commandline as bash <filename>.

Happy (lawful) hacking all :)

1.0 out of 5 stars Cleans the dust and debris from the keyboard..., 10 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This cleaner is part of a multi-layered approach. It cleans all dust and debris from the keyboard really well but is nigh on impossible to remove it once applied. It breaks apart far too easily and drips down into the gaps between the keys and stays there. Even after leaving my keyboard upside down for ages it still remains there. Some of it drips away but not all of it. Even after using a cocktail stick to pry it away it's still there. It just makes my keyboard look like it's part of the set of the new Ghostbusters film after having Slimer fly through it.

Update:

The company responded to my concerns quickly and professionally. I have no problems with them regarding this matter

1.0 out of 5 stars Misleading title, 1 Jun. 2013
I would've bought this book long ago but find its title misleading. I only want it if it's Python 3 as earlier versions are incompatible.

I've not read the book so don't know if the mistake is the publishers or Amazons.

Douwe Egberts Reserve Blend One Cup Filters (Pack of 4)

4.0 out of 5 stars Very nice, 26 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This coffee arrived today and tastes very nice. It's very convenient and easy to use and allows one to make a nice cup of coffee with little or no mess. It would be better if the cups held the same amount of water as the average mug though but other than that, I have no complaints. Would recommend and will buy again (maybe a different strength to see which I prefer).

On a side note, the delivery was quite late in the day (not Amazons fault) but when I phoned them to query it they did everything they could to assist me and find out where it was.

3.0 out of 5 stars 2 out of 7 seeds grew, 3 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this kit as something to try and interest my nephews in different subjects (only one was interested but that's another matter). It came with about 7 individual seeds but only two of those sprouted and are not growing quickly. The instructions are not very good (a few words printed on the outside of the packet). Water from the top of the pot, not the bottom.

All in all, the kit contains everything needed except for the water.

TP-Link TL-PA211KIT AV200 Nano 200Mbps Powerline Adapter - Twin Pack

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, 26 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have been using these adapters for about a week now and have no problems with them at all. I would recommend them to anyone wishing to set-up a home network. I have no problems with them and I use Linux so I know they are not just Windows devices (there's no software to be installed so there wouldn't be any problem of that anyway).

Even though these devices are capable of 200Mbps bandwidth you'll only get 100Mbps is you use standard cat5 cables. If you want to use these adapters to connect to the Internet this will be fine though because at time of writing there isn't any connection speed faster than that in the UK (unless you pay for a leased line).

1.0 out of 5 stars Toilet paper anybody?, 27 Dec. 2010
It is amazing that this useless piece of filth is still under the impression he understands economics. He has made so many mistakes and is so useless in both politics and economics that he made repeated mistakes of the most basic kind ("Anyone want to buy gold at rock bottom prices?" is one example of many). My 7 year old nephew would do a better job than Brown could ever hope to. Instead of buying this book and using it for what it should be used for might I recommend this instead? £50 Million Toilet Paper

Avoid this book like the proverbial plague.

The Runes Box (Bookinabox)
The Runes Box (Bookinabox)
by Ralph Blum

1.0 out of 5 stars Words cannot say how bad this package is, 15 Mar. 2010
Anyone who knows about the runes (and their real usage and layout) will know anything Blum does it worthless and only caters to new-age types who have no desire for reality. He changed the sequence of the runes, an order which has lasted for many hundreds of years which means his system is deeply flawed and doomed to failure. For those who really want to learn the runes buy books from people such as Swain Wodening and S. Plowright because these men, unlike Blum, know what they are talking about and study a subject before they write about it.

As a general rule of thumb, any rune sets with a 'blank' rune should be ignored because it proves the creator didn't know what he/she was talking about. A rune is a symbol, not the tile or item on which the rune was carved/drawn. A blank (missing) symbol is an oxymoron.

Try these books instead:

The Rune Primer: A Down-to-Earth Guide to the Runes
Hammer Of The Gods: Anglo-saxon Paganism In Modern Times
Pierced by the Light: Viking Gods, Runes and 21st Century Magic
