Keeping ISBN10 when downloading metadata

Downloading metadata replaces manually-entered ISBN10 number with the downloaded ISBN13 numbers. For various reasons, I'd like to keep the original ISBN10 number. Is there an option to prevent it from overwriting?

A fantastically fun looper pedal cover of The Cure's "Close To Me"

I've been researching looper pedals for my 12-year-old guitarist son and happened upon this video of Mick Bishop using his Boss RC-300 Loop Station to create a very fun cover of "Close To Me," perhaps my favorite song by The Cure.

need custom column built from other cols, behave like tags but with author-like separ

I've created a very useful custom column (built from other columns) that hold canonicalized author names: it works great (I used author links to hold the canonical form of any given name, and then this regex: {:'list_re(author_links(":", " & "), " & ", ".*?([^:]+):?$", "\1")'}). All is good, except that I had to use the "built form other columns" type rather than the "built from other columns, behaves like tags" type because the names may contain commas, which causes havoc with the tag-like beh...

Clothkits is 50...

I’m sorry I just HAVE to inflict one more bout of nostalgia on  you before I cease and desist this self-indulgent behaviour (for a while) because how could I let the fiftieth birthday of the inimitable Clothkits pass by without mentioning it. The DIY clothes company where the pattern pieces were pre-printed onto the fabric and all you had to do was cut and sew. Founded, I now discover, at a kitchen table in Lewes in Sussex in 1968 by Anne Kennedy, though really not a big part of my life until t...

Two Books for Anyone Entering the Working World

If you know someone who's about to enter the working world--particularly an undergraduate embarking upon a job search or a recent grad beginning a professional role--I highly recommend these two books.  Art of the Job Search: A Step-by-Step Guide to Finding the Job You Love, by Heather Hund, and Indispensable: How to Success at Your First Job and Beyond, by Meredith Whipple Callahan, offer complementary views on how to 1) launch one's career and 2) insure that it gets off to a s...

Best approach for koreader + reflow for journal paper reading?

I use Koreader with PDF reflow for reading research journal papers (it's truly wonderful), and very frequently need to jump between the main text and the references section at the back of the doc. That's a common use case for reading research pubs, and many folks still print journal PDFs because hardcopy works well for jumping back and forth. Hyperlinks won't work for at least two reasons: PDF reflow uses bitmapped image content rather than text and hyperlinks Many PDFs simply don't have hyperl...

Kobo Forma Orientation Sticking Upside Down

Kobo Forma, updated firmware 11/3, auto-rotate, sleep cover. Occasionally the pdf I am reading will be upside down after closing the sleep cover, putting the Forma down, and picking the Forma up again to continue reading. Although in auto-rotate mode, the orientation does not correct itself to be right side up, and only becomes correctly oriented after an extraordinary amount of what seems to be random waving and rotating motions that would be potentially highly embarrassing if performed in p...

Feedback on a few days of koreader use on a TouchLux 3

The application works rather well, I still have several difficulties on the following points: - The ON/OFF button switches the reader to standby, (instead of on/off) and if I hold it down for a long time, then the reader restarts. - If the reader remains in standby, book open, after a few minutes the reader stops and when I restart the reader, I do not find my book on the right page. - The gesture to increase/decrease the intensity of light also sometimes changes the font size. - How do I ge...

ePub won't convert to mobi

I've just received "Japan by Train" published by Japan Experience in ePub format. I can add it to my Calibre library, but trying to convert it to MOBI so I can add it to my Kindle library FAILS at 47%. Using the latest version of Calibre, get no error messages, just a conversion stuck at 47%. The file size is ~ 8.3mb. I've remove it from my library, downloaded it again, and get the same result. There's a .pdf version, and while conversion goes to completion, the result is quite unsatisfactory. ...

Nook Glowlight Plus free space?

The new Kindle Paperwhite 4 has made me look back at B&N's Glowlight Plus. I know it has 4GB of storage, of which 1.5GB is taken by the OS leaving 2.5GB. But I've read conflicting reports of how much space is available for sideloading. I'd first heard that they learned from the beating the Glowlight took and left all of the free space available. But then I've read other reports of them restricting 2GB for B&N content, leaving only 512MB for sideloading. Any Plus owners that can confirm which i...
