need help finding a book.

I don't know where to ask this. I need help finding a book I used to read when I was little. I don't remember the title or the author, just that the main character is a girl named Jerry whose mother died, and she and her brothers wind up in foster care. I know at one point they stay with their abusive grandmother who always complained about them "contaminating" her granddaughter Alice and that Jerry graduates from school under the false surname Zigga. Care to help me please?

You could find multiple at any National Bookstore.

It's very cheap. You can buy one at least 1 dollar. You can check any bookstore or department store in our country.

Haha, I see.

I'll get one ASAP, studying without a dictionary is kinda hard.

Thanks!

You know I had been recommended various programs for video conversion on this very forum but I know that not the programs are reliable. I know on last computer I downloaded some programs and they turned out be very bad for the computer although I suspect that the hard drive I bought was corrupt to begin with. Are there free video conversion programs that are not only reliable but are virus free and causes no crashes? Especially since I want convert videos for my PSP and Android.

I usually use Handbrake for my video conversion needs. It's pretty nice and even allows for SSA subtitles (the usual in anime mkv releases) to be burned into the picture.

You click on /thing/ on the up part, and scroll down or scroll up if it didn't change in the past 3 years.

Question: Is getting a monitor for a laptop a good or bad idea?


Spoiler for My Situation:


I plan on getting it tomorrow, but I'd like to hear some people's opinions on it before I go out and drop a bunch of money.

^ sounds too much of a hassle if you dont have the space for it. if you have room to adjust
for the monitor, i dont see why you shouldn't get it if you want it.

if it was me, i probably wont get it since i dont need two monitors. if i need to watch anime on
big screen, i just hooked up the HDMI from my desktop to my LED. having a desktop is nice.

(i was about to suggest getting a desktop instead, but since you dont want it, oh well.)

Actually I have plenty of space for a monitor. What I meant was I had trouble finding space for my laptop when I want to hook it up to my television.

But I decided to go and just buy it anyway. Haven't had a chance to really use it due to me having to work. But I appreciate your feedback, thanks.

I am not sure where to ask this, but can anyone tell me how to make a gif avatar? I feel bad for keep asking for requests.

Better first to choose which software you wish to use. Most go to either Photoshop and GIMP.

For guides go Here

I recommend GIMP for starters since it's very basic and easy to use.

I have been getting some bad cough recently just right after mid-night. Sometime even when i'm half-asleep and fully got my blanket on, on bed. Any idea what could happen? Or is it just a coincidence that it always happen after mid-night?

was just installing some updates on my computer and after I installed those updates my, I noticed that I couldn't use the 'Stand By' button or that it wasn't in Power options anymore. What happened and what can I do to get it back?

Planning to get some albums at the end of this month, however one of the albums I want (probably) is Hybrid SACD instead of conventional CDs I got so far.

Will I able to open & rip (by using WMP) the SACD with my laptop like normal audio CDs, without any major problems?

If they are Hybrid SACD then yes, you'll very likely be able to open then on regular CD/DVD players like any normal CD but you will only have access to the legacy redbook tracks and not the higher quality SACD tracks. According to wikipedia:

Quote:
Objective lenses in conventional CD players have a longer working distance, or focal length, than lenses designed for SACD players. This means that when a hybrid SACD is placed into a conventional CD player, the laser beam passes the high-resolution layer and is reflected by the conventional layer at the standard 1.2 mm distance, and the high-density layer is out of focus. When the disc is placed into an SACD player, the laser is reflected by the high-resolution layer (at 0.6 mm distance) before it can reach the conventional layer. Conversely, if a conventional CD is placed into an SACD player, the laser will read the disc as a CD since there is no high-resolution layer.
IMHO, unless you have a SACD player and a good sound system already, springing the extra cash for them isn't worth it.
