    I Need Help Marking pdf

    My Aunt has self published an adult coloring book.
    We have the pdf file created, and she is on Lulu, so the physical book can be bought there.
    There have been people requesting the pdf...especially in other countries were shipping is high.
    Do any of you know a way to sell a pdf without doing a hands on exchange? I know I could accept payment through Paypal, and send the pdf, but I was wondering if there was a way to set it up online, where I could just say "here, pay and the pdf is yours" kind of thing.
    I understand that pdf's are risky overall, so some advice on how to keep them protected would also be welcome.

    Thank you

    For securing pdfs, Google "secure pdf" and you'll get more information than you'll know what to do with. There's definitely more than I know what to do with.

    I was hoping to come across others with experience, and use that. LOL!

    I don't blame you. I've been trying to pry stuff out of these guys for years, no luck yet.

    Ok what are we talking about now? Something about Magic Markers?? Why do they smell so strange? I really have no idea.

    I have some advice to give. Try a little rubbing alcohol on those seemingly dead magic markers. I've found it works wonders. You can get an extra year out of the things easily, maybe even two, depending on frequency of use, of course. But don't use too much or you may end up wearing it.

    I need help as well, though for something completely unrelated. Something of which I wish not to discuss at this time as this is the Marking thread, and it has almost nothing to do with marking.

    Just messing with you, Cry.

    I think I just felt God, for what it's worth. His arms are a bit hairy for my taste.

    Yes, there's nothing like a good marking topic. I just wish this darned computer would stop asking me if I want to turn on Caret Browsing.

    Ok, I'll admit I'm a bit rough on the keyboard. I think it's full of tobacco crumbs to boot. F7 seems to be an extra sensitive key.

    Also, the message is apparently a Firefox thing.

    Now that we have all (?) the facts, I believe I am ready to make a public determination. I determine that one should probably not be typing on a keyboard at this time, as there is a rather severe storm happening right now in my neck of the woods. Complete with heavy downpours and scary lightning and thunder. If this keeps up I may have to move to Florida. That way I will be better conditioned to it.

    Someone on a TV cooking show just said; most people want what they can't have. It had something to do with butter beans but I think it fares well as a general comment, though I am not completely convinced that it as a stand-alone comment is true to any appreciable degree. I suppose several surveys would need to be conducted.

    Have I ever had any professionally therapy? Not that I recall. There ain't a one of them that really knew what they were talking about so can only assume that they were not true professionals.

    I'm sure I've marked a few PDF's in my day, it's just that I don't remember any of them.

    I think that Ed has been wanting to discuss watermelons. Ok, Ed, take over. The forum is yours. Just don't get too botanical. We here at BTWIMHO are of limited intelligence.

    Watermelon picking for two dollars an hour? Sure, where do I sign up? I heard that the job includes all you can eat. I'm not sure how much more a person could want quite frankly.
