Any Hope To Bring Back My Screensavers?

First the obligatory I messed up. Not sure how I managed to turn off Airplane mode, but none the less, I returned to my Kindle Voyage in time to see the update to 5.10.2 complete. My device was jail broken with KUAL and Screensavers installed before the update. In reading through the forum, I see some folks had success with previous FW version 5.9.X, however I am not seeing anything with 5.10.X. I have tried updating KUAL, however, still getting an Application Error when selecting it. After...

Rock Solid Optic Mounts from American Defense MFG

American Defense MRO Mount U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- Sometime around 2008, I started hearing people recommend AR optic mounts from American Defense. It wasn’t until 2017 that I picked up some mounts of my own. We are a bit beyond the one year mark now, and I’m quite pleased to report my findings. I’ll front-load my conclusion for those with limited attention spans— they’re rock-solid—good-to-go—bomb-proof—pick a positive OoRah statement and insert at will. Let’s talk about why I’m ready to si...

Fail to Plan, Plan to Fail: What to do for the next Anti-gun President

Both Bill Clinton and Barack Obama won two terms as President while attacking our Second Amendment rights. (Official White House photo) Washington, DC – -(AmmoLand.com)-  Right now, in some ways, Second Amendment supporters should be feeling very good. We have seen two very strong pro-Second Amendment justices on the Supreme Court, making Chief Justice John Roberts – who voted to strike down the handgun bans in Chicago and Washington, D.C., the swing vote. We have a pro-Second Amendment presi...

Way to open multiple instances of calibre?

I wanted this feature too, so I could have one library or set of library with children's books, no password. Etc., and another set of libraries for adults. I know I can use a virtual server, but that is a bit of a waste.

Pages will not turn in converted books

Hi all, I saved a bunch of stories from various websites as HTML files, then plonked them into Calibre and converted to MOBI. All good there - I can view them fine in Calibre and all looks normal. But when I transfer onto my Kindle, I can read the first page of the stories, but when I tap the screen to go to the next page, it takes me straight to the end of the book. It is happening for all of them. Back in Calibre on my computer, page turning works fine (I can scroll down or use the arrows to g...

‘Bump Stock’ Lawsuit Makes Unique Points to Seek Injunction against Ban

News in book format, not periodical

I don't know if this is possible with Calibre, or if this is the right place to ask about it, but I'm trying to create an eBook from an RSS feed. Calibre does a fine job of converting the feed into a periodical, but I really want it in standard book format, i.e., with each article made into a chapter, so at the bottom of the page my Kindle can show time remaining and overall percentage progress, instead of a progress bar for just the current article with no time remaining display. Is there any w...

Kenneth Josephson

I really like this book, but I had to learn how to enjoy it. You know that third helping of dessert when the first helping was ecstatically delicious, or rides at Six Flags, or that friend of yours who's full of new jokes, amazing facts, facile wordplay, excessive bonhomie, and too much energy by half, but who wears you out after three or four hours? You can get too much of a good thing, is my point. What I've learned to do with this book is to sit down, crack it open randomly, and look long, h...

Breaking text between images

I have been trying to get a block of images to float right and the text to break after each image. Not sure if this has been discussed before.

I have a list of authors for a book, 8 or so. Each one has an image that I float right and have the text set to the left. I use Sigil for code editing and all looks great in the a...

Inexpensive Good Guns to Replace guns Turned in at Baltimore “buyback” for $200

Inexpensive Semi-Automatic .22 rifles turned in at Baltimore “buyback” U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- On 17 December 2018, the City of Baltimore held a gun “buyback”. The term “buyback” is an Orwellian propaganda term. You cannot “buyback” something you never owned in the first place. It should be called a gun turn-in.  On 17 December, over 500 guns were turned into the police for destruction. One of them, a small 9 mm semi-auto pistol was turned in by Darlene, as interviewed by the local Fox affil...
