    @chris g

    If it was me, I'd add it to the end of the old thread. The conversations on the thread might spark more interest in the series than just posting about the book being in print.

    Hi Ariana,

    Thanks for a site which is accessible to the software I have to use. I am partially sighted with no central vision. In order to read Freakangels, I use a program called Zoomtext Extra which combines powerful magnification and smoothing with a text - to - speech function. The magnification allows me to read the novel and I use the speech engine to read this forum. So many websites out there are simply unreadable but this one is a doozy! Thanks very much.

    oh wow-- senacherib, I have a brother with Stargardt's disease and no central vision. it floors me that there's software that could help him read a forum like this (if he were so inclined). and it's fantastic that this site is accessible to such software!

    senacherib: that's actually very good to know, thanks. The forum was specifically built to zoom well with built in browser options. There is also text dialogue on each page of the comic which may work with your speech engine.

    Is the member location map generally quite reliable? Only I used google to find my co-ordinates (NW England) and when I feed them in, it shows me living on some remote Scottish island? (not that it really matters, unless people assume I'm some kind of weird island mentalist...)

    Hm, it's usually pretty accurate... did you try using the built-in search?

    Yes, they gave me the same co-ordinates.

    No idea, then! Maybe your Whitechapel spirit-persona just is a weird island mentalist...

    Yeah, I'll stick with it, maybe people will assume I'm more interesting than I am.

    Hi Roque, sorry that I've not been back to this forum for a month! However, if your brother would like some information about access software I'd be glad to help. The R.N.I.B. and Action For Blind People do offer assessments but they often recommend software that is easy to administrate on a network rather than be the best option for home p.c. users. The main problem is that these programmes ain't cheap! You can buy three laptops for the price of a license for Supernova or Zoomtext Extra.

    Post here if you need more advice.

    @senacherib-- thanks for the information! I'm not in touch with my brother at the moment, unfortunately, but you've given me a lot to tell him in the future.

    So, I just joined yesterday and have been attempting to put together my profile. I've tried several times to post a picture and icon, both using flickr urls, and neither show up on my account page. Seems simple enough. What the hell am I doing wrong?

    You're apparently just sticking a ".jpg" on the end of the url for the page where the pictures live. (And, you know, you're not the first person to have done precisely that, so no worries.) But that won't work.

    You need right-click on the image and select "view image" and use *that* web address. ("Copy image location" will work too.) When you get to the right url, it'll already have the ".jpg" part in the address.

    Hm. I actually tried just grabbing the address from the main view of the picture first, but that didn't work, so yes, I tried sticking ".jpg" on the end of it. Heh. I thought I was being smart there.

    Also, I'm using the mac at work, which does not offer me right-click 'copy image location'. The picture itself, in my photostream, does not have ".jpg" on it. Boy do I feel like an idiot right now. :p
