Aura ONE How do I combine multiple Kobo annotation tables?

Hello all, I currently read on a Kobo Aura ONE. I’ve had it replaced under warranty three times: once due to dud front-light, screen failure, and once after it went insane when I plugged it into a Samsung USB charger. Each time I had an up-to-date backup of my annotations, though, and now I’d like to combine the annotations from my three devices so that I can have all my annotations available on my current reader, and can export them using this (sadly unmaintained) Python script. (I didn’t w...

Calibre settings from Kobo (KA1) -> Kindle (KO2)

Hello, I have Calibre (v.3.34) setup to convert books to .kepub automatically upon sending to a Kobo Aura One (via the Kobo Touch Extended Plugin). I've recently sold my KA1, and decided to replace it with a Kindle Oasis 2 (which hasn't arrived yet!), instead of the Forma which was my original plan - and I need help to change my Calibre workflow from Kobo -> Kindle. I've been looking for a similar option/plugin/guide for the KO2, and haven't found as clear setup instructions (I apologize if I...

Issues getting Calibre Companion to connect to Calibre on Win10

I keep getting 'could not find Calibre'. My PC is wired, connection is 'private'. I can ping the PC from my phone.

At the Loch of the Green Corrie ~ Andrew Greig

Continuing this week's Scottish travels we're going fishing, because At the Loch of the Green Corrie came highly recommended at a recent Endsleigh Salon evening where our book theme had been 'Hunting, Shooting, Fishing'. The selection of reads that evening was broad from my choice of Why Homer Matters by Adam Nicolson ( I somehow made it fit) to The Power by Naomi Alderman, A Monstrous Commotion by Gareth Willams (about the search for the Loch Ness monster), Angle of Repose (get it?) by Wallace...

Microsoft Fixes Windows 10’s File Association Bug, Unless You’re Using the October Update

Microsoft just updated Windows 10 to fix the file association bug we reported and some other issues. For some bizarre reason, these fixes are not available if you’ve installed the October 2018 Update on your PC. On November 27, Microsoft released a “cumulative update” for Windows 10 that fixes a variety of bugs. As Bleeping Computer notes, Microsoft says the problem that prevents some Windows users from setting their default applications is fixed. Unfortunately, the Windows Media Player bug is ...

South Dakota expects Constitutional Carry with Governor Elect Kristi Noem

South Dakota Governor-Elect Kristi Noem Arizona -(Ammoland.com)- South Dakota is a deep red state. It should have passed Constitutional Carry years ago. Constitutional Carry is a reform of gun laws restrictions to approximate the restrictions in place when the Bill of Rights was adopted in 1791. Actually, it did. More than once. But Republican governor Dennis Daugaard vetoed a Constitutional Carry bill on March 17, 2017.  This wasn't the first time.  It was a long-standing performance. Gover...

How to Make a Paper Flower Wreath

Kobo to Amazon to Kobo

I had a Kindle PaperWhite a couple of years ago. After that, I was on Kobo. Every time a new device with a bigger screen came out, I got one, H20, Aura One... I recently got a Kindle PaperWhite 3. Partly because I finally wanted a smaller device. But I'm now back on Kobo, with the Clara HD, mostly because of the Kobo software. The Kindle software has improved a lot since I first had one.

And there were robots

Well, there. Youngest daughter is not only married, but the occasion’s now been properly feted, and I can’t even tell you how trashed our house is.  Not the kind of trashed that comes from not cleaning up for a few days because you’re busy, I mean the kind of deep trashing that comes from three sisters doing their nails while searching for just the right earrings (everything from my scant collection was rejected, and in the end Megan gave Sam the ones she was wearing) while a father tries to fin...
