Found a problem with Kindle

  interzone55 11 Oct 11

Whilst reading in bed last night there was an annoying flying thing flitting between my head and the lamp.

Normally I'd simply swat it with the book or magazine, but this is not something you want to be doing with an expensive ebook reader, so I had to grab a book of my ever growing "waiting to read" pile to exterminate the bug.

There you go, one more tick in the old school dead tree book column...

How do know it was a 'tick". it might have been a ladybird or a gnat.

So I should keep a rolled up mosquito net by the bed to swat the bugs with...

...sticky fly-paper is effective in the control of flying insects.You can get 6 sheets for a the pound shop :o)

Bug Zapper

Everybody should have one of these.

peter99co - I've got a 'Zapper' - it's quite tricky to use, as a degree of synchronicity is required...backhand volleys are my favourite.

So maybe I'll invent the double-sided-sticky-screen-protector. Illuminated fly paper. Splatastic! Might get a bit messy after a while, so you'll just have to buy another one from me....

Once the oft mentioned roll up screen becomes commercially viable you'll be able to swat it with a rolled up monitor!
