Calibre 3.23 stuck in perpetual loading

I am having a similar problem to one reported back in 2017 and I am using latest version of Chrome from Windows machine and Firefox on Linux Mint. Calibre vers 3.21.

Firmware 4.11.11976 Released

Kobo have released firmware version 4.11.11976. This is only going out to the Forma. It is to fix some problems reported with version 4.11.11911. The problems I know of that it is fixing are: Hanging as reported here. Importing sideloaded kepubs with errors causing a reboot as discussed here. I think they might have fixed some other import related problems. The update will be rolled out Forma devices. I think it will be rolled out faster than the usual schedule.

I am looking for recommendations on Vlad the Impaler and The Bloody Countess (Erzsebet Bathory). This is not related to Halloween. Just two topics on my non-fiction TBR list.

Armed and Unarmed: A Difference in Mindset

Armed and Unarmed: A Difference in Mindset Arizona -(Ammoland.com)- Being armed or unarmed is, in many ways, a state of mind. An armed person sees the world differently from a person who has decided to be unarmed.  Nicolo Machiavelli, the famed author and political philosopher, states it well in The Prince: Because there is nothing proportionate between the armed and the unarmed; and it is not reasonable that he who is armed should yield obedience willingly to him who is unarmed, or that the...

A 2007 PhD thesis on Kautilya’s Arthashastra – interesting summary of the ancient Indian state and economy

I’m always interested in analyses of the Arthashastra. Reporting this here for my future reference. The thesis confirms my readings so far from a variety of sources. The ancient Indian state can be best characterised as a pre-liberal capitalist state. The moot question relates to the level of freedom of thought and speech. It appears […]

Content Managing Collections The Old Fashioned Way

I've got the KO2 (32GB) with approximately 5,000 books on it. I organize all of these books into about 10 collections (use genres as my collections).
