Civilian Owned Night Vision Is NOT A Problem – Military Grade Or Not

Huffington Post posted an article demonizing military grade night vision in the hands of civilians. The article is full of fear and ignorance and grossly misinforms their readers. I am an ardent fan of night vision as are many others here at TFB. I know our Editors Pete and Tom both have night vision. Dick […] Read More … The post Civilian Owned Night Vision Is NOT A Problem – Military Grade Or Not appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

Nine Miscellaneous AMRs and Hand Cannons from Syria

(I can recommend three interviews: the Cyberlaw podcast with Stewart Baker, the Lawfare podcast with Ben Wittes, and Le Show with Henry Shearer.) My book talk at Google is also available. The Audible version was delayed for reasons that were never adequately explained to me, but it's finally out. I still have signed copies available.

Tolino Shine 1.5?

For a while now I've wondered whether the original Tolino Shine used a Pearl or E-Carta screen because there were conflicting reports on the Internet. For example, the German Wiki on the Tolino Shine shows it using a Pearl 1024×758 screen, but MyTolino shows it using an E-Carta 1024×758 screen. https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tolino_Shine https://mytolino.com/tolino-shine/te...pecifications/ Someone was selling these on eBay and was down to one left (and they were dropping the price 20% each week ...

E-book viewer issue

Linux + Qt5 + Calibre 3.32 Anyone could suggest me some way to better display my ebooks on Calibre ebook viewer? I have this big left and bottom margins, as if table of contents where hidden, and cannot remove it. This issue is format-independent (epub, pdf) and I guess it happened when I upgraded to Qt5. I have had no problems before. Following is a screenshot of an epub ebook. Thank your for any suggestion. https://ibb.co/8YHgfyy

Travel: There’s a town of bookstores in Wales called Hay-on-Wye, and, yes, there’s ice cream

There’s no shortage of storybook villages in the United Kingdom, but a village devoted to storybooks? There had to be a story there. Located near the Black Mountains in Wales, Hay-on-Wye is a village with an unusual sales pitch: It’s largely made up of bookstores. There are 19 of them according to the local website, and the shops specialize in everything from general fiction and nonfiction to mysteries, the military and poetry. It also hosts a literary festival in the early summer that attracts ...

Fallback plan...

Tuesday I switched to an alternate range plan. The 9mm ammo I'd ordered Monday morning hadn't showed up yet, and so I grabbed the last hundred rounds of .40 FMJ I had ready to hand and the neglected 4046 and took it to the range instead of the P89. The only .40 that's anywhere near as pleasant as the full-size all-steel Smiths to shoot with duty-type .40S&W loads is the HK USP40 full-size.It occurred to me while shooting this thing that if I were picking a trigger to teach someone a press-out ...

Campus Garden Teaches, Feeds, and Solves Runoff

This garden on the campus of the University of Maryland isn’t about prettifying the campus, though it IS an improvement. It’s about teaching students how to grow food, manage stormwater and help the bee population. It’s tellingly located between the School of Public Health and the Recreation Center. It all started when a food security question was asked by a student: Where can I grow food on campus? That led to a graduate student initiating the project in 2008, first by asking for 3-4 ac...

Restoring Library Post-Reset

I recently suffered a bug with my Galaxy Tab A and, unfortunately, I had to reset the tablet. However, my books were stored on my SD card. Is there any way to get CC to see these files and create a basic database from them or will I have to just re-sync them all from Calibre? Thanks!

A haunting ambient sci-fi album about a message from Neptune

Latlaus Sky’s Pythian Drift is a gorgeous ambient concept album, the kind that’s easy to get lost in. The set-up: a probe discovered on Neptune in the 26th Century will communicate with just one woman back on Earth. The Portland, Oregon-based artists write CDM to share the project, which is accompanied by this ghostly video (still at top). It’s the work of Ukrainian-born filmmaker Viktoria Haiboniuk (now also based in Portland), who composed it from three years’ worth of 120mm film images. ...
