This was as of yesterday. As I had previously told you, Garmin Express (at least on Windows) does NOT auto-update or provide you with any notification that an update is available. You have to check manually.
Not sure what going up to 5.8 from 5.7 did. I haven’t seen any differences. Maybe it was to add support to the Vivoactive 3.
Obi110/100: Continuing To Use ‘Google Voice’ With The $6 ‘Simon Telephonics’ ‘Google Voice Gateway’ (GVGW) Fix.
My ‘Google Voice‘ outbound service on the OBi110 stopped working this morning. Since OBi had screwed us before with Google Voice I kind of figured out, quite quickly, that this most likely was a software issue.
Did a few Google searches and LUCKILY stumbled upon the ‘Simon’ post, at the OBiTalk Forum, referenced above. A $6 FIX! I was skeptical since there were some bad reviews too. I was also worried that I might not be able to get it to work. But, $6 — on PayPal. Was worth a try.
IT WORKED — to my delight and relief.
The PayPal part was fine. No problems.
It took a FEW — nerve wracking — minutes, with multiple saves, browser refreshes and one cycling of power on the OBi110 before it took hold. Once it did, it was FINE.
What have you got to lose? $6?
I just hope this works for a few months.
Thank YOU, Simon.
You saved my day.
Clouds could be a problem. Supposed to be cloudy all day, starting early.
The conjunction will also be low-down (i.e., close to the horizon) and as such, IN NEW HAMPSHIRE, could be obscured by our trees, even if they don’t have any leaves anymore.

They are INCREDIBLY flexible and appeared to cover all the bases. Lulu and others offer similar capabilities BUT Lulu (who I used to publish with many years ago) has become a pain to use/
As some of you know I have been a diehard Amazon, Kindle (KDP) and CreateSpace fan when it came to publishing my books. While a Kindle eBook can be read on any Apple device I knew that not having my eBooks as iBooks was a ‘limitation’. So, that Draft2Digital’s biggest pull — plus that I didn’t have to jump through any hoops in terms of reformatting my eBooks. The Word document I used with Kindle would work — AND DID WORK!
Draft2Digital is EXTREMELY SLICK. Wow.
It took me a TOTAL of 12-minutes to create an account (from scratch, with passwords etc.), set-up payments (PayPal) and TAX INFORMATION AND publish the first book!
Yes, I had all the files, book descriptions etc. from doing it on Kindle. So all of that was just copy-and-paste.
No fees or up-front payments. They take 15% commission (or thereabouts) and I am cool with that.
My problem is that most of my eBooks are still subject to KDP Select — which means Amazon has exclusive rights to them, ALBEIT on 3-month rolling windows. So, a couple of weeks ago I went ahead and cancelled all the KDP select rollovers. But, right now I only have this book (I published) and the Pope John XXII book that are OUT of KDP Select. I will publish all of them as they come off KDP Select but that will take me into January 2018.

This was the second ‘Battle of the Bay’ we have thus attended — we also having gone to last year’s. It was fun.
