Are the links clickable?


Yes, looking at one page at random on my Kindle Fire:

Quote:
Black has two main moves here:
A: 2...Nc6 (a 31% likelihood of occurring)
B: 2...Nf6 (a 42% likelihood of occurring)


Where A & B are links. Also, there are links to chapters, lines, and notes. The page I'm looking at has 10 links to other pages. It's probably the most thorough job of linking I've seen in an ebook.

I don't have it - the extent of my researching was simply looking to ensure that it existed.  Sad

Kindle indeed!


Are the links clickable? Like

1. c4 Sf6 2. g3 the theory branches off

Line A: 2...e5
Line B: 2...c6

are the reference designed as links? I have only on opening book on kindle and got annoyed really fast because it was a pain to hop to the line I was searching for. Only the Chapters in the Table of Contents were clickable ...

Hmmm! I don't think that people will be reading The Dynamic English in 100 years time!


Wrong.
I bought a copy just today.

Tom Lehrer, I believe.

And mentioning him:"Index I copy from old Vladivostok telephone directory." - does that remind anyone of certain opening books, by the way? (I am certainly not referring to The Dynamic English, a book I very much enjoyed)

Bravehop,

Cool, I'm a teacher too! I wasn't going to mention the "for educational purposes" clause because that allows us to run off class sets of certain #s of pages (I think it's 11 or less) without running afoul of copyrights.  But that is only expressly for edumacational porpoises, and I don't think copying Tiviakov's review counts towards dolphins.

Breaking copyright laws by making illegal photocopies or burning CDs/DVDs is both illegal (which you probably already figured out) and unethical.  Period.


Well, it's a given that making illegal photocopies is illegal. 

But you're allowed to make copies for your personal use.  I know from being a teacher you're also allowed to make as many photocopies as you want for educational uses--there are some qualifications there, like length and etc.  There are probably similar qualifications for burning CDs.

Let's put it bluntly:

Breaking copyright laws by making illegal photocopies or burning CDs/DVDs is both illegal (which you probably already figured out) and unethical.  Period.

But, the reading public is fully entitled to use the public library, go to the book store, or even go to a friend's house and make notes based on the information they find in books and magazines.  That's called "research", as anyone who's read Speelman's Analysing the Endgame knows.

As he said,

"Plagiarise, Plagiarise
Let no-one else's work evade your eyes
Remember why the Good Lord made your eyes
So don't shade your eyes
But plagiarise, plagiarise, plagiarise
Only be sure always to call it, please, research."

(quoting Mr. Mark(?) Lehrer/ the "great Lobachevsky")

You know you're doing your research if you can say who gave you the idea!

Winning with the Philidor was very good, it should get a second edition  Cheesy !

It is a shame that a lot of chess players are so stingy that some are always asking me for photocopies or illegal DVD/CD copies. My invariable reply: Buy it!

In that way we may have Mr. Kosten more inclined to indeed reach immortality  Wink
