Thesisness: Quick snapshot/progress

So I’ve been back at my thesis (since it’s pretty much do-or-die at this point) and figured out the following things:

  • How to take screencaps with the Nook Color (push the home/’n’ button and the minus (-) volume button at the same time; small walkthrough here)
  • The actual dimensions for the NookColor’s display, in order to use as much screen space as possible
  • Calibre‘s conversion tools allow me to play with the margins of the .epub file, so none of my images will be  truncated (…for now)
  • Sigil is still annoying, but I can’t live without WYSIWYG (… for now)

Once I have more substantial updates with the thesis, I’ll post more of my progress to the appropriate page here. Finally getting work done, jeez!
