Short Fiction Hoffman, E.T.A: Weird Tales, v1, 30 Dec 2018

E.T.A Hoffmann (1776-1822) was a Prussian artist, author, caricaturist, composer, lawyer, musical director, and musician. He wrote very many short stories and novellas, though not many of them have been translated into English. The translator for Weird Tales was J.T. Bealby (1858-1944). He provided a 'Biographical Notice' about Hoffmann in the book, and stated that 'the common characteristic running through the stories [is] that he puts them before us more as individual pictures than as develop...

Frozen Themed Treasure Boxes

I loved the movie Frozen, so much I made a “Let it go” parody, sang it and posted it on YouTube. And while the song itself has gotten old, my love for my favorite Disney “Queen”: Elsa is still here. So much that I would buy kinder joys just so I could get an Elsa! I was originally gonna put her in a snow globe but then after a cycle of messing up on Frozen kinder joy dolls and collecting so many Annas ( frozen themed) and Elsas (frozen fever themed) I decided to turn one set of the dolls into a...

Setting minimum light level

I did a search for this but couldn’t find anything. Is it possible to set the minimum backlight level to something other than zero? I’d love to be able to slide down the left side of the screen and have it stop at 1%.

HELP: Kindle PW read only on MacOS Mojave

Hi there, Been a while since I posted here, but you guys are all geniuses, so if anyone can solve this, you can. I have an old Paperwhite (2012 I think) that is visible in the Finder on Mac, but is apparently mounted read only since I cannot copy anything via drag and drop (I get the circle with a line through it) or through Calibre (which reports that the /Volumes/Kindle volume is mounted read-only). I have tried running fsck_msdos on it and it doesn't report any issues. I've reset it to factor...

usbnet 0.22.N "too new" for KV 5.6.1 firmware?

I bought a backup KV when it seemed pretty clear it had been discontinued and jailbroke it. I let it sit for a while until I decided what firmware I wanted to put on it. I eventually found that 5.6.1 is recent enough to support the new xray format and old enough to not support KFX. (Yay!) KUAL and KUAL+ work fine, but Update_usbnet_0.22.N_install_pw2_kt2_kv_pw3_koa_kt 3_koa2_pw4.bin gets deleted instead of ungraying UYK. Should usbnet 0.22.N install on a KV running 5.6.1 or do I need to us...

Racism Of The Modern Gun-Control Community

Opinion intolerance bigotry liberal hate speech racism race baiting California – -(AmmoLand.com)- The local fairgrounds were discussing renewing gun shows or not. A friend of mine commented that over 80% of all shootings are gang and drug-related.  The response was a flat out racist comment, which we will not repeat, from the #Enough activists who want to ban guns. To be honest, I’m not even sure where to start.  Calling someone “RACIST” has been so overdone that when you actually see racism...

Acacia by Extremis

A great outdoor parasol is a thing of beauty. Acacia by Belgian company Extremis offers a clever design with a small footprint. Based on its namesake tree, Acacia should be directed toward the sun. “The parasol-shaped crown of the African Acacia tree is an evolutionary adaptation to capture as much sun as possible with the smallest possible leaf canopy,” explains Extremis. Despite a small surface area, Acacia deflects the sun’s rays quite well. And after sunset, the parasol can be illuminated ...

Watercolour Collection by Nendo

Recently shown at Design Miami 2018, the Watercolour Collection by Nendo explores the effects of watercolour painting. Created for Friedman Benda, the Watercolour Collection includes 18 pieces of metal furniture. The simple metal furniture looks as if it “were cut and folded by hand.” The construction belies the material, making something hard appear soft and pliable.

Conversation Piece: Hayon x Nani Rug for Nani Marquina

If it’s envisioned by Spanish designer Jaime Hayon, then it’s probably a conversation piece. The Hayon x Nani Rug for Nani Marquina beautifully encapsulates Hayon’s iconography of forms. Tropical and serpentine, wild and whimsical, Marvel and Miro, Hayon’s visual vocabulary often includes anthropomorphic creatures from another world. All of these humorous creations get depicted on hand-tufted wool rugs in the Hayon x Nani Rug Collection. On the floor, Hayon’s sketches deliver a world of wonder...

Frankford Arsenal Primer Pocket Swager Review

The Clarys review the Frankford Arsenal Primer Pocket Swager. Frankford Arsenal Primer Pocket Swager USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- As most reloaders know, primers in military ammunition are crimped in to prevent them from “backing out” under combat conditions. If a primer backs out and falls into the action of a rifle, especially an AR-platform, the action will frequently jam and put the user at great risk on the battlefield. Frankford Arsenal Primer Pocket Swager Over the years, reloaders have ...

Calibre installation gets "Another installation is in progress"

I remember using Calibre a few years ago. I wasn't sure if it was on this laptop. I don't see any trace of the installation except for a "Calibre Library" documents folder. This was probably copied from my old laptop. When I tried to run the installer this morning, I got "Another installation is in progress". This happened the first time I tried to run it. It does this every time I attempt this. There is no installation in progress. I'm on Windows 7. All I need to do is convert epub fil...

Metadata slow to save after edit (new user)

Hello, I have just started to experiment with Calibre, and imported 10 pdf's into my first library. I have been very surprised to find that saving changes to metadata for a single book takes several seconds. That's the delay between clicking OK and the edit window closing. Is this expected behaviour ? The problem was raised here, and kovidgoyal said : Quote: Either you have your calibre library on a very slow drive, or your antivirus is interfering with file...

tolino disappointments

I am somewhat disappointed with Tolino. In the first place their webreader is not available in Belgium:bummer. But moreover their ios app also does not work, and this is not mentioned on their website with nothing but commercial stuff, but it's only true if you are from Germany, Netherlands, Switzerland or Austria. Moreover for complaints or help they apparently wash their hands because you are redirected to your bookshop. Not a nice company!
