The Burglar and the Blizzard by Alice Duer Miller (1874–1942) A young millionaire falls in love with the sister of the man whom he catches burgling his house. Subtitled “A Christmas Story,” this novella is, in truth, a humorous story of romance. A certain degree of improbability will require the reader to go with the flow – are you up to the challenge? ====================== Alice Duer Miller (July 28, 1874 – August 22, 1942) was an American writer whose poetry actively influenced political o...

The Virtues Of Being A Small Firearms Manufacturer

Reuters: A decade ago, Kentucky’s Anderson Manufacturing was a small machine shop that didn’t make firearms. By 2016, it was making more rifles than Smith & Wesson, according to the latest available data from the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). Anderson’s big seller: assault-style rifles that cost up to $2,100 and require no lubrication. Anderson says it made nearly 454,000 rifles that year, or about 57,000 more than Smith & Wesson. Anderson is the leader among a ...

Paperwhite 4 Screen Cleaning Issue

Last month I bought a new KPW4 and as soon as I received it, I made sure that there was no oleophobic coating on the screen glass by dripping some water onto it. After that, whenever I felt the glass became too fingerprint-smudged, I cleaned it with 75% alcoholic cotton slices. Up till now, the total times that I used these cotton slices have added up to 4~5 times or about. So my point is, considering KPW4's screen is a panel of glass with no oleophobic coating, does alcohol really hurt it? Many...

TFB’s 12 Days Of Christmas: Scatterguns For Saint Nick

The death of the shotgun as being a viable defensive tool has been greatly exaggerated.

"Mark as unread" popup

The last few firmwares have had this "Mark as unread" message popup periodically about books that are at 1%. I find it really annoying, especially since Kobo usually sets the page at the beginning of the text on transfer to the reader and not at page 1, which is usually the cover, so it of course reads all books as being at 1%. Is there anyway to stop that popup from ever appearing again? Maybe a patch I missed, or some line in the eReader.conf file? Attached Thumbn...

Devanagari, Sanskrit, Hindi

A disadvantage of this is that informations that are provided directly by the OS are displayed in Russian. But these cases are not too many. Step two: W...

The NRA has a soft spot for the police and for good reason and politics. However, they should probably address the bad shoots that officers are involved in. Not completely off topic, but it made me laugh:
