    I rewarded them for their reasonable eBook sales price by purchasing 10 of my favorite books in eBook format.

    It's not important to add reptutation points to others, but to be nice and spread good karma everywhere you go.

    Not in my "top 10" -- but worth a spot on my Kindle DX and/or iPod Touch. Went back for it and made it out with only 3 more eBooks icon_lol.gif

    Yeah -- you'll have access on your account page (and from your mobile devices)..... once the server load decreases from the eBook Gold Rush. icon_lol.gif

    It took a few minutes for my first 10 eBook order to complete. The 2nd 3 eBook purchase when a lot quicker.

    I tried logging in to my account page from my Kindle DX, but the hamsters powering the O'Reilly web server seem to be tired and I couldn't get into my account. I'm going to wait until tomorrow to try downloading again since they seem to be getting hammered....

    trouble downloading your ebooks.
    We expect to have the issue resolved soon. Please continue to check back....

    Anything with Cisco or JUNOS in the title icon_lol.gif

    I did grab the TCP/IP Network Admin book since I spent a lot of time in that back in my old UNIX days -- and a couple of the Security books.

    I'm still fighting the urge to "eBook" my UNIX/Linux and Java O'Reilly collections. I ripped the "Greatest Hits" CDs years ago and still lug those ISOs on my Laptops.

    Edit: The "Greatest Hits" were the old CD Bookshelf products.

    Just for kicks I searched the Android Market for 'MCSE' the other day and bought the 70-291 MS Press ebook from Oreilly Media for $9.99. They've got a ton of books there between $4.99 and $9.99.

    O'Reilly seems to have figured out this eBook thing. icon_cheers.gif It seems I can upgrade any of my existing "old fashioned books" to multiple eBook formats and read them on my PC, Kindle, or iPod Touch for one very reasonable price.

    Some vendors that used to provide a free PDF version on the CDs provided with their books seems to have figured out they can remove them from the CD and charge an "Arm & a Leg" for a Book/eBook combo -- or an outrageous price for the eBook alone. icon_eek.gif

    A ton is an understatement. I picked up some cisco and ms stuff on the droid market. Great resource!
