3.34 calibre-debug runs the script code under Python 3

Have old Python 2.7 script written in year 2013. It used to run under calibre-debug for five years. However, update to 3.34 began to throw syntax errors in all print commands in this script. Enclosing print operands in parenthesis in accordance with Python 3 standard helped. I have 32- and 64-bit Python 2.7 and 3.4 installed on Windows 10 machine. Bare command "Python" invokes Python 3.4. Still, my unmodified original script runs OK under Calibre 3.31. Is it possible that 3.34 calibre-debug...

NRA, SAF Lawsuit Evokes Fundamental Questions About Rights and Democracy

Battle of the Best 22 Survival Rifles: Henry AR 7 vs. Marlin Papoose

Henry AR 7 vs. Marlin Papoose U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- The Henry Survival Rifle and the Marlin Model 70 PSS are arguably the greatest survival rifles made. Let me explain.The takedown rifle has been around at least since the bicycle rifles of the turn of the 20th century. Hunters valued light-weight rifles that could break down into pieces. This allowed for ease of transport to and from the destination. Plinkers could ride to the edge of town and pop glass bottles without having a gun strapped...

Touring The Arex Pistol Factory In Slovenia

My hotel for the Arex factory in Ljubljana, Slovenia was a converted medieval castle. USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- I have been a fan of the Arex pistols for quite some time. A few months ago, the FIME Group (Arex's importer for the US) invited me to tour the Arex factory in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

Little ~ Edward Carey

I have spent an awful lot of time whilst reading Little by Edward Carey, and since, trying to remember if I ever went to Madame Tussaud's as child. Have I ever been there... Surely I would never forget a visit... I can clearly remember interminable hours on school trips to the Planetarium next door. The tedium of staring at the night sky on the domed ceiling which seemed to lose its appeal after the first five minutes, and we'd all wish we were next door in Madame Tussaud's instead.  The ver...

New Kobo

I had a lot of help from the forum when I thought my Kindle Paperwhite was about to die. It survived. But it got me thinking my next e-reader should be a Kobo Aura H2O 6.8" eReader (2nd Generation). I have MS, which means my vision is not good, I need a huge font, so a larger screen would be great. The Kobo Forma 8" eReader and Kindle Oasis 2017 7" are just way to awkward in size and or design for me to hold comfortably for long lengths. Plus I am looking forward to accessing Australian Public L...

5.11 Taclite Coyote Boots – Long Term Review (5 Years)

For the last 5 years, I extensively used 5.11 Taclite boots. They have been with me in 12 countries, withstood heat up to 133°F (56°C) and still look decent enough to wear them on a night out (even though my wife disagrees with me on that). For the last year, I’ve been looking for a replacement, until I learned […] Read More … The post 5.11 Taclite Coyote Boots – Long Term Review (5 Years) appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

Troubleshooting Some mobi files won't sync furthest page

Is there any "trick" to convert epub (or any other type) to mobi, so Kindle/Kindle app would sync reading progress? I use Calibre to convert any files to mobi (mostly with basic/default settings). Then send them to my Amazon account, so I can read on my devices, Kindle Paperwhite, Android phone and a Chromebook. So far it's good... but some books don't want to sync at all. My last book wasn't syncing at all. It was converted with Calibre. Then I used one of the online site to convert the origi...

Returned my pw4..Are there any e-readers with really good contrast and crisp text?

I just purchased my first e-reader and it was the new paperwhite 4. I couldnt stabd it. Some ppl may not see it but the text looks a little washed. And it distracted me. Making it bolder and larger just made more bolder and larger washed text to me. I went to the store and saw the nook glowlight 3 and was blown away. It said enhanced contrast and they actualy meant that. I was going to buy it but ppl say nooks are no good. Slow, and mahbe out of buissness soon. Plus you cant get alot of books...

Calibre cannot convert AZW file (locked by DRM)

I just bought a book from Amazon, and i was going to convert it into EPUB for reading on my Kobo (after downloading it to my computer using the "Kindle for Mac" app - I don't own a Kindle e-Reader). I've always used Calibre (with the DeDRM plugin) to convert Kindle books this way, and it has always been successful. Until today :-( Calibre imports the Kindle AZW file (metadata included), but it cannot read nor convert it. It says "This book is locked by DRM", etc. - I updated DeDRM - I upda...

Android ereader app that lets you add synopsis?

Is there an ereading app for Android that allows for you to edit the metadata of the book the app itself displays? I understand this wouldnt be permanent editing to the file itself, unless I use Calibre. I have a ton of books for research, so having a synopsis in the app helps. I know how to add one & then insert it as metadata when I use Calibre, but I don't always have access to Calibre off-grid. I currently use Aldiko (paid version), and it allows me to edit the book description/synopsis (...

Best Gift Ever

*sponsored by Kodak Digitizing Box I believe the greatest gift you can ever receive is a beautiful memory. I’d rather have a special day, or meal, or adventure, or trip that gives me a special memory than any material object. We live in a digital age which makes picture taking so easy, aren’t we lucky to have all our present day memories captured in digital format? But what about those memories you have before this modern age of digital preservation? Where are all of your pictures from childhood...

Has anybody tried installing KIF (Infocom Interpreter) lately?

Resuscitating a topic that seems to be dead for over fuve years, so starting a new thread. The software is still at https://adq.livejournal.com/108011.html I have a Kindle Keyboard, running firmware 3.4.2.

Can this 'tag' go in a CSS?

Hi... have a very long book (over 3k pages in KP) and noticed many of the sub-chapter headings are orphaned with blank space and the text starting on the next page (usually when an image that accompanies the text is too large to be put on the previous page). I don't want to create a sep HTML file for each sub-heading, so was going to use this: ... to keep the heading with the text... But was wondering if it can be placed in the CSS somehow so I don't have to manually paste it into several doze...
