Calibre and Windows 10 Open with

@Windows gurus, Please can someone with a better in-depth knowledge of Win10 help? If I right-click on a .txt file in Win10 and select 'Open with', I get a context menu containing 7 different Win 10 programs, including my default app, Notepad++.

SILENCER SATURDAY #52: A Market For A Modern Welrod?

Good evening quiet readers and thank you for joining us once again for TFB’s Silencer Saturday, the only place where single shots can be more fun than select fire weapons. Which leads me into today’s topic: is there a market in the U.S. for a modern Welrod pistol? While many of today’s suppressor manufacturers focus […] Read More … The post SILENCER SATURDAY #52: A Market For A Modern Welrod? appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

Three Days of Christmas Feasts in Italy

Le Tre Feste di Natale  The Three Christmas Feasts  Most families in Italy begin celebrating il Natale on the evening of December 24 (la vigilia di Natale) with a big dinner. Because Christmas Eve is a vigilia di magro (a day of abstinence on which the Catholic Church prohibits the consumption of meat), the centerpiece of the meal is fish.  The traditional choice is eel, a favorite of the ancient Romans that appears in the earliest known cookbook, written by a gourmand known as Apicius. This...

Thursday Range Day

Another hundred rounds of the Magtech got run through the Ruger at Indy Arms Co on Thursday morning. I was pushing for as much speed as I could get out of the thing. You can see the two rounds where I got a little aggressive on the trigger prep in recoil, cranking them off before the sights had settled.The gun went through the normal cycle of operation all one hundred times.This brings the round count to 1,670 rounds since the weapon was last cleaned or lubricated, with no malfunctions of any ...

Regex: CSS font-size keyword to ems

I have found that the Kindle PaperWhite does not handle CSS font-size keywords well. If device font-size settings are not at the default, the Kindle will display fonts at uncomfortably extreme sizes. I have created a Calibre regex-function which maps keywords to ems. 1) Restrict search to style files. Apply "Beautify files" tool to make sure code is ready. 2) Set Mode to Regex-function. 3) Search: font-size: \K([^\d.;]+) 4) Click "Create/Edit" button and paste the following into the code box: ...

Can Humor Alter Your Brain Chemistry?

“If I had no sense of humor, I would long ago have committed suicide.”   ~ Mahatma Gandhi Do you know why everyone isn’t in a mental hospital? Because there isn’t enough room. Philosophers have long observed a dearth of happiness among humanity. Henry David Thoreau said, “Most men lead lives of quiet desperation.” John Stuart Mill observed, “Unquestionably, it is possible to do without happiness; it is done involuntarily by nineteen-twentieths of mankind.” Abd ar-Rahman III, who reigned...

My configs and locations?

So am running my Calibre on Ubuntu and my drives are split up so I like to keep my library on mounted raid drives. I just let Calibre install in default location, but am guessing that means the cache and virtual library, configs, and any other items will grow larger on this smaller boot drive. I understand about the environment variables per the documentation, but cannot figure how to set or change them. If I simply run Code: CALIBRE_CONFIG_DIRECTORY , it does nothing. Help on this p...

Boox Poke Pro and Play Store?

After a rather bad experience with my Boox T38, I have been using the Kobo Aura H20. However, it didn't really offer the kind of customization I like, and, I recently discovered Scribd, which I would like to have installed on an e-Ink device. So I was considering to buy a Boox again, but I just read in this article on Goodereader: Quote: If you have an existing e-reader and you have bound your Google account before March 16th 2018, you are going to be alright...

Aura ONE OverDrive sign-in broken

Hello, I have had a KA1 with stock firmware for about a year now. I was using OverDrive to borrow and read books through the device, but sometime in the last month or two, it stopped working; I'm not certain exactly when. Now, when I try to sign in to my OverDrive account, it stalls after I select my library and enter my library card number. I have even tried doing this with my KA1 connected to the library's WiFi, but to no avail. It's very frustrating, especially because it used to work perfec...

"Use saved conversion settings" -- why?

I keep my books as EPUBs, but auto-convert them to AZW3 when I copy them to my Kindle, and then delete the AZW3s so that if I have to fix anything, I won't end up editing the EPUB and then accidentally uploading the old unchanged AZW3 to the Kindle. I've recently had to change a few conversion settings, and each change has meant spending about three days reconverting all my books to make sure the new settings "take" -- because if not, and I edit an EPUB and then upload it to the Kindle, it uses ...

Weekend Cooking: Slow Cooker Ropa Vieja

It's almost Christmas, and my cooking week, has gone full-on easy, tried-and-true, and flexible. I can't believe how many evenings have been taken up with last-minute errands, wrapping, cleaning, decorating ... ARGH. Last week's dinners included lentil soup, roast chicken, and pasta with my homemade sauce (from the freezer). Last night we resorted to tuna salad because the easy savory galatte I had planned suddenly seemed like too much trouble. Tonight I'm turning to the slow cooker and a reli...

EPUB to AZW3: font sizes changed -- AGAIN!

I had a problem earlier with this earlier (see this thread) which turned out to be due to not having checked "Disable font size rescaling" under Look & feel > Fonts. Since then I have made this the default, and I spent three days reconverting all my EPUBs with "Use saved conversion settings" unchecked, to make sure that I don't get hit by a book which uses some old settings with font size rescaling enabled. However, I now have another font size rescaling issue. One of my EPUBs (which looks perfe...
