Upgraded to firmware 6.4.424 and PocketBook Touch HD3 Froze, but ...

It would freeze at the boot screen where it says "Pocketbook", a hard reset (holding down the power button for 10 seconds) would reset it, but it would still start up again and freeze again at the same boot screen. I was able to unfreeze it at that screen by holding down the < and > keys for two seconds to force quit whatever was frozen. I did this a few times and it eventually got to the main screen, but the interface language was wrong. I figured something was wrong with the firmware, so I ...

Solving the google drive issue

Since google drive is one of the 3 major cloud providers, it would be nice if calibre supported it without having the possible threat of renaming that google drive appears to do. All that has to be changed is to change the directory convention. It can either be number-first or number-last, without the parentheses -- parsing should be able to deal with it either way.

all of my word docs converted to calibre

All of my word documents in files that are not related to calibre have been converted to calibre documents. I do not know how this has happened. I am a novice calibre user. They do not appear in my calibre programme window anywhere, but all of my word docs saved to the cloud have been affected. I note that a similar post appeared on 11-25-2019 by fsommers. The response was that not all files are converted and to look for them, as they will still be there. I have done this and ALL of my word doc...

NY: Gillibrand Believes the Impossible; Making Gun Sales Illegal Will Work

New York is an anti-gun dystopia. IMG iStock-884181314 U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- Those who wish to disarm other people have a disconnect with reality. They refuse to believe some things are not possible. This creates problems. One of the reasons people push to disarm others is they refuse to arm themselves. Having made that decision, or, having had that decision made for them; they personally see no cost to their disarming of others. Disarm that guy over there. He is not me. It doesn’t hurt m...

Font Settings

Him in the prefernce settings i can select the font to use. In codeview i'm using Source Code Pro because i1l or also O0 can be clearly distinguished. Unfortunately, this has no effect on text boxes, for example in Find/Replace. Unfortunately, a font is used here where il1 looks almost the same. Is it possible to select the font there as well?

Why it’s so hard to get grass to grow in Southern California yards

Q: My house is on a slope, but the bottom will not grow grass no matter how much I water it. I put rolls of sod down and a week later it’s burned. What would you do? A: When new homes are constructed in California, the soil must be super-compacted to protect against earthquake damage. This is one reason it’s so difficult to garden – the soil lacks any natural structure or organic matter. We’ve seen builders install sod over this super-compacted concrete-like soil, and it looks good until escrow ...

Knife Rights Was Born 15 Years Ago!

Knife Rights Was Born 15 Years Ago! U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)-  It was in 2006, on July 25th, that Knife Rights founder and Chairman Doug Ritter opened the Wall Street Journal to an article “How New, Deadly Pocketknives Became a $1 Billion Business” (read the article here). That overwrought and sensationalist article was filled with distortions, misrepresentations, innuendo, outright lies and cherry-picked quotes pushing a transparent rabid anti-weapon and anti-freedom agenda attacking loosely ...

Celebrating Author Jabbour Douaihy (1949-2021) and Publisher Fares Sassine (1947-2021)

On July 23, within a few hours of each other, two literary friends and fellow travelers — gifted and generous Lebanese author Jabbour Douaihy and prominent Lebanese publisher Fares Sassine — died: Douaihy died after a long illness. Douaihy will be remembered not only as a gifted stylist and humorist, author of polyphonic multi-layered narratives, most particularly his insightful June Rain (translated to English by Paula Haydar), but as a kind and generous mentor, open with his ti...

How Trader Joe’s unlikely story of success almost didn’t get told

Long before Trader Joe’s sold a buffet of fancy foreign cheeses, it had Brie. And Trader Joe’s had Brie first. The story of how the Southern California-based grocery chain cornered the market on gooey French cheese is just one of the tales told in Joe Coulombe’s business memoir, “Becoming Trader Joe: How I did Business My Way and Still Beat the Big Guys.” Coulombe, who grew up on an avocado farm in Del Mar, died in February 2020 at his Pasadena home at the age of 89. However, with author Patty C...

Sol Fuel Free Lighter – Small But Critical Survival Tool

The versatile little Sol Fuel Free Lighter. IMG Tom Claycomb U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- The SOL Fuel Free Lighter is a cool little survival item that you ought to add to your survival pack. I got two for me and my daughter to use backpacking. If you get outdoors, you’re going to need to build a fire and if you get out very much, then somewhere along the way being able to make a fire will have life & death consequences.

Weekend Reading 7.25.21

Sunday hellos everyone! I spent extra time this week at our flip property with the electrician and receiving the kitchen cabinets. The property is in Sonoma which gives me an opportunity to sneak away to cool lunch spots or stop on my way home for a quick wine tasting. No complaints from me! I’m flying to Portland on Thursday, so I’d appreciate any recommendations for good eats, cool spots, or nice views. I’m driving the Oregon coast home so if you’ve visited any beach towns on the Oregon coast,...

I have an extensive (5000+) library of medicine and biology books, notes and research papers in pdf and djvu which I manage with calibre on my PC.

Touch HD3 — best battery ever made?

I've been reading on my HD3 for the last week and I realized the battery is still at 51% — and then it occurred to me that I still haven't charged it for the third time yet (and it didn't come fully charged). It was delivered in late January, so six months now... and still at 51% charge? (I think the last time I charged it was in April or May... maybe March?) Curious to know if others are getting this kind of battery life from their HD3s? It's just weird.
