Here are my notes from the meeting:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=201756690

A .pdf file can be viewed here:
https://kindle.s3.amazonaws.com/Kindle_Fire_Users_Guide.pdf

Some of the details may be different than for our tablets.

And on the tablet, you can click on “settings” and “help” to find the manual and some other resources. This is probably the best source.

https://twit.tv

I intended to  play several minutes of this video. https://twit.tv/shows/new-screen-savers/episodes/25?autostart=false   from 1:09:45-1:13:27 +/- and couldn’t due to “technical difficulties.”

I think I have my computer fixed. And will try again.

Hope you can join us next Saturday.

Cheers,
