If we are making wish lists I'd love mathematics and physics quotes -- or any science quotes in general.

Your wish is my will. All written down for the future. I will have to make popup wisdom quotes until die !

Note : I will get special software to control duplicities. It's not very important but sometimes may help.
Note : I have opened a post in DC to collect computer quotes from the members. This is the forum !. I am afraid they are too humble to cooperate but I will insist.

Edited : ComputerQuotes some with computer jokes.
Edited : 16.09.2017.11.01, some new jokes and perhaps the more interesting computer quotes until the moment
Edited : 17.09.2017.16.01, some spanish borrachos jokes and more of the series computer quotes. By using we can detect errors. I will correct everything detected by anyone.
Edited : 18.09.2017.12.19
Edited : 19.09.2017.08.07 some quotes are very large in this file. I have no problem because i am using several monitors. In the future I can adapt some large files in other way....
Edited : 20.09.2017.06.40 With this "combat session" we are in the middle phase of computer quotes. Computer Quotes is a central theme in DC. Will be followed by specialised quotes by author some day...
Edited : 21.09.2017.08.12 a good link to process with time : http://www.softwarequotes.com/ . In a first session.
Edited : 22.09.2017.10.44 Metaphysical introduction to pensieri parole.  :P
Edited : 23.09.2017.07.52 Reaching target "imposturi di colori"  :-*


Edited : 23.09.2017.13.08 the phase about computer quotes is considered finished in the pre initial session.
In the next benchmarking session the procedure may be changed to Author according to the tastes of DC members.  :-[

Having scientist quotes is awesome -- I think no point having separate quote books for different scientists -- combine them all in one!

You're absolutely right. Is just a question of modularity and simplicity. PsPad (or Notepad++) or in native way PopUp Wisdom has the ability to join or mix files. The only disadvantage of specialised author'f files is that you can have the option to see only one author. This is boring and tedious but fortunately may be solved with the final joining. And also with best recopilations. I am planning these to have the possibility to measure the largest collection by author and this may be of no interest with universal scientists, but i am about to forget that the best is a relative question and I want a special effort in this ( https://www.donation....msg413024#msg413024 ).
So is a preliminary consequence talk about a particular scientist and then of all of them.
The Living Room is the adequate subforum for our beloved scientists and I will care the edition of those posts to not inundate the subforum with a lot of quotes every day. But the members with scientist they prefer will have the option - sometimes - to see a specialised review.

For his purpose I have opened a post in Snack Coding for prepare the posts. But I have the answer now in the simple way, so I am not worried anymore.

I suggest to continue with the prefered scientist of Miles Ahead and step by step the posting will grow in a pleasant and not disturbing way of the rest of the posts (jokes, hobbies, happy discussions, etc. ). The quotes probably will be another part of the subforum for the inspirational moment.

Best Regards

Contro I'd like if you could combine your latest quote files into a few big ones (like one each for science, computers, love), and let me make them available on the books download page?

I have already published an ebook on Amazon.com, and I would like to add a few modest revisions to it. The problem is, I published it a number of years ago, and since then, I have gone through the failure of four or five successive computers, and I have made a zoo-like collection of different file backup saves. So that I am not sure which copy of the book is the most recent and up-to-date. If I unwittingly work on revising an earlier save, I could lose the improvements made in any subsequent backup saves. The only way I would feel absolutely sure of getting the very latest copy of my own work, would be to download a copy directly from Amazon. I have Windows Office Word 2003. The ebook ms. -manuscript- contains dynamic Chapter to TOC -Table of Contents- interlinks. I don't mind the thought of losing those, so much as unwittingly losing the odd gem or two of those highly prized little 'intuitions' that make a good book shine and sparkle, by working on an older backup copy. Can I download my own ebook copy from Amazon, open it in Windows Office Word 2003, work on it, and then simply reupload it to Amazon? Or is there going to be some kind of file software mismatch?

Likely the copy from Amazon you plan to download includes DRM. You'll have to get rid of that first, before you can edit it again.

Perhaps a diff program can help you find which it the most correct(ed) version. Normally that is tool programmers use to find out changes in code, when those changes occurred and by who (if more than one person works on the same code). Diff tools come in different "shapes and sizes", but there are a few good, open source ones. Code is usually done in some form of text file and a Word document is far removed from being a text format. Not all diff tools work so well with the proprietary format that Word documents use.

Version control functionality in Word...it ain't good. But better than nothing, I'll guess.

I would suggest to use better version control tools. Those can either run on your own computer or you can use a Cloud solution for that. Solutions like GitHub/GitLab (in combination with Git) are not intended to be used for tracking changes in Word documents, but it would not be impossible to use those for that purpose. You could also consider to convert your best Word document into MarkDown (or AsciiDoc). You will need to get your head around the syntax, but that isn't too difficult. Once converted, you have your book in a text-based format. There are many free MarkDown editors that make working with these documents very easy. And because of the text-based format, diff tools and version control software work way, way better for tracking changes you made (and when/why those changes were made).

It is also very easy to revert to a previous version of your document, in case you would need that (for whatever reason).

Besides, MarkDown (or AsciiDoc) documents are very easy to convert to Word (or .PDF or .HTML or .EPUB or .Mobi) documents. So, however the publisher likes to receive revised versions, you can accommodate them.

This might sound like a really big change, but you'll soon find that in the period you are getting to grips with this, you'll be wondering why you didn't do this earlier. And guess what? Most, if not all, tools can be used for free. Text based formats also have no expire date, like Word does. MarkDown (or AsciiDoc) documents you make now, will be just as readable now as they will be 20 years from now.

Markown (or AsciiDoc) documents also have built-in TOC's, different types of headers, spacers, separation lines, quote sections, you can link to/from information inside your document. Or other MarkDown/AsciiDoc documents that reside on your computer or in your favorite Cloud solution. Or other types of documents (local and online). Initially, MarkDown/AsciiDoc documents may not look like much, but once you get the hang of them, they are just as capable as Word.

Word count is also no problem in MarkDown/AsciiDoc, just as grammar and spelling-checks. In case you were wondering.
