    Some bastard put my MA thesis online, it's a bloody embarrassment (but has niche appeal so maybe that's why it went up).

    This one doesn't seem to have set the boards on fire, Pickman's model.

    monoskop.com

    and

    Newton's Opticks is surprisingly readable.

    https://books.google.co.uk/books?id...ce=gbs_ge_summary_r&cad=0#v=onepage&q&f=false

    I especially like Part II about colour, with section titles such as "Whiteness and all grey Colours between white and black, may be compounded of Colours, and the whiteness of the Sun's Light is compounded of all the primary Colours mix'd in a due Proportion. The Proof by Experiments."

    Sirena Don't monkey with the buzzsaw

    This about stone circles and megaliths and dolmens in Portugal. It is 90 pages, written in English by a Finnish post-graduate

    Apparently there are some 120 sites of standing stones (some dating to 5000bc) in Portugal and legend has it that they were constructed by a former race of women.

    The study looks at the stones and their legends, especially the role of women and goddesses in the stories.

    Actually, the first of those should read monoskop.org

    On a related note. . . does anyone out there know if Stanley cohen's Folk Devils and Moral Panics is available as a PDF anywhere?

    Thanks, I'll have to see what I can do to actually open it, but that will be a task for tomorrow.

    Calibre is free and available for most platforms and contains a v. good general purpose ebook viewer.

    It will also convert between formats although I'm doubtful that a direct epub to pdf conversion will look very good without a lot of messing about. (Too many variables involved). However a conversion to rtf would allow you to sort out any formatting issues and the resulting document could be saved as a PDF if that's what you actually need.

    Thanks again. The last time this came up, I used google docs to convert the file, and it seems to be working again.
