Quelle Surprise!

In news that will come as a shock to absolutely nobody with a Netflix account, the Hillsborough County, Florida Sheriff says that the will left by Carole Baskins' vanished husband is faker than pro wrestling."They had two experts deem it 100 percent a forgery. But, we knew that...we knew that before," Chronister told 10 Tampa Bay.According to Chronister, the problem was that the statute of limitations had expired for any crime related to the will."The will had already been executed at that point...

How do I reinstall my library?

I had calibre on my computer. The hard drive died. I have a new hard drive and I had my calibre library saved in the cloud. I've reinstalled calibre on my new hard drive. I have the calibre folder from my old hard drive saved on my computer. HOW do I get the program to RECOGNIZE it? Using the Calibre icon to switch/create a library doesn't work. It tells me there's already a library there. I tried library maintenance. That didn't work.

Kindle Fire 8 HD Home Page App Folders

Hi .. first time here, so I hope I'm doing this right :) I have an issue that no one at Amazon has been able to help me with (other than a factory re-set, which I do NOT want to do!). I've set up folders on my home screen to organize my apps - Games, Music, etc. What happens is, about every other time I open my Kindle, most of my apps have fallen out of their respective folders and are just left randomly on the home screen. Does anyone have any idea why this might be happening, and how I can ...

30 SEC READ: Contradictions

Contradictions are what make love grow. Conflicts are what allow love to remain by our side. Life is too short for us to keep important words, for example, ‘I love you’, locked in our hearts. But do not always expect to hear the same words back. We love because we need to love. Otherwise, love […]

Previsualisation broken

Hi Since yesterday, on Archlinux, after a big Qt update (but not only it), I realized that previsualisation is broken on Sigil with all ePubs. It displays the files exactly as if there was no style sheet, even images are not displayed. All these ePubs are correctly displayed with the Calibre editor and have no ePubcheck defect reported. I have Sigil 1.2.1 with 5.15 Qt. Attached Files historique.pdf (41.6 KB)

Regex Beginning and End of Tag

Can Regex understand the end of a line or the beginning of a line that has text on it? I want to be able to insert something at the beginning of each line where the text starts and at the end of the line where the text ends. I'm thinking Regex can do this. I've used it so far and it's a very cool guy. My process is this: I copy pasta lots of text into a text editor, then I copy pasta that into Sigil and I'd like to use regex to do some hefty formatting inside of Sigil.

Tolino Shine 2, $26 + shipping at eBay

From GoodyStore, in case someone is interested in looking into Tolinos or getting a backup. The Shine 2 uses a 300 dpi screen (front-lit, but no warm tones). It was replaced about a year ago(?) by the The Shine 3, which is a Clara hardware clone. My Shine 2 has a very nice, sharp screen with good contrast. I can vouch for this dealer. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Tolino-Shin...4AAOSwy-leuUiy

Daily Prime - Dark Commander Beats Nemesis Prime to the Punch

I cannot keep up with the many officially licensed and third party editions that have been made, with more in the works. However, the AOYI SS38 Dark Commander caught my eye real quick because they have made a Nemesis Prime version of the SS-38 when Hasbro or Takara has not. Most surprising is the Dark Commander (right) has some improvements with the addition of die-cast parts in the chest and the leg flaps that don't come apart as with my Studio Series figure (left).

Formatting one large epub file

I typeset my book in InDesign, and in Indesign I exported to epub (want to publish KDP/Kindle). Unfortunately I did it as one large 158 page file. So as an epub it has no chapter breaks etc but is a huge unformatted mess. I am now trying to edit it in Calibre (which I am new to). I need to be able to insert "markers" so I can later designate areas using "set semantics" but cannot find out how to insert the content markers in Calibre. I also need to know what happens if I try using the sp...
