I had previously mentioned Saturday's range trip. I arrived in the parking lot just as they were unlocking the front door and turning on the "OPEN" sign. I had 150 rounds of Magtech 124gr FMJ with me, fifty of which was already loaded into magazines.I put the TQ and blowout kit in the range tray photo as my usual "I am not on the range alone" signal but, as it turned out, I managed to chew through my 150 rounds in big, goofy mag dumps at seven yards before they managed to get any other range cu...

"USB Connected" screen image replacement

Dear Mobileread Community, I need your help in replacing screen image when Kindle Paperwhite 3 (5.9.7) is connected via USB. I had no problem doing that on Kindle 4 Non-Touch. However, it seems like besides the png file itself, their is also an eips (?) command to draw something else. What I did: 1) Prepared an image. Just took my favorite one and after some tweaks in GIMP, I finally converted it to a proper eips-compatible format: Code: convert input.png -type GrayScale -depth 8 -colors...

Useful pointers if you're new to film...

It seems weird to someone my age, but anybody much under 40 grew up in an era when film photography was the province of artistes and dinosaurs. I mean, it still sort of is, but it's definitely seeing an upswing in popularity.Digital has been mainstream pretty much since the turn of the millennium, so if that's what you've always shot and would like to dabble with film, the video has some good pointers on what to look for when browsing the dusty offerings you'll run across. .

SIG SAUER P320-M17 U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- The fighting guns of the United States Army holds a special significance to nearly all groups in our country.

SIG Sauer P320-M17 When the P320 series was first released, it was met with some criticism. The negative press continued for several years as the design was put th...

Bump Stock Ban Signed by Acting AG to Prompt Legal Challenges

The terms of surrender… U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “Today, Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker announced that the Department of Justice has amended the regulations of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF), clarifying that bump stocks fall within the definition of ‘machinegun’ under federal law, as such devices allow a shooter of a semiautomatic firearm to initiate a continuous firing cycle with a single pull of the trigger,” the DOJ announced in a Tuesday press rel...

Marvin 3 / Ipad - I can't create a "User Collection"

I'm trying to create some custom "User Collections", but can't for some reason. When I click on "User Collections", I see the pencil / paper icon in the top right corner. When I click on it, the icon turns to a check mark, and a greyed out message saying "tap to rename or delete" shows up. I have tapped all over the place, and create a new collection. Has anyone had this problem? Can you please tell me what I'm doing wrong? Thanks! I am using an ipad and Marvin 3.

Vancouver Design Inspiration

A while back when I told a friend I was thinking of a driving visit to the Northeast, she began to enthusiastically list the gardens I should visit. But the reality is, when I’m on vacay, I don’t necessarily WANT to visit a lot of gardens. This is partly in difference to my husband, who already tolerates a LOT of shoptalk around our house when my gardener friends drop by. Beyond that, a vacation is supposed to be a break from work, even when it is work that you love. So a garden or park has to ...

Benefits of being locked in to a provider

First let me say I wish ereaders were made by companies who didn't sell ebooks. That, to me, is the single biggest problem with this industry. But they are and there are some benefits and I thought they were worth mentioning. I can only speak about Amazon as a provider. I have Nooks and Kobos but I don't buy their books. They're for sideloaded books. The first and most obvious benefit is ease of use. I get 3G Kindles for the most part and I can download books from my library anywhere I ha...

Mixing cable and CC

I've had to give up using Calibre Companion. A shame, because when it worked it was really good. It can take up to half an hour to connect CC to my Kindle Fire 8HD. I get the "could not connect" message over and over again. Some days it will connect, others it won't. There doesn't seem to be a pattern to it. So when I couldn't connect, and I didn't have the time to troubleshoot (again!) I downloaded my books by connecting my Kindle to my computer with a cable, and transferring books from the m...

The Trumpening

So, Trump’s DOJ unilaterally and unlawfully banned bump stocks. This could be done by congress, I would think. But I don’t know that this will stand. In other news, if you have a bumpstock, you’ll be a felon in 90 days if you don’t turn it in or destroy it. So, where’s my national reciprocity and hearing protection act I was promised?
