Action Barr, Robert: Young Lord Stranleigh (1908), v1

Some very sharp City of London operators think that rich Lord Stranleigh, a Bertie Woosterish West End fashion plate, is an easy mark to make some money. There is a potential gold mine in Africa, for example; a dilapidated but workable cargo steamer The Rajah, to haul the gold ore back to England. What more is needed? An entertaining yarn of dealing, double dealing and even triple dealing, and young Lord Stranleigh is by no means as big a mug as he looks. ...

Lenovo Introduces Two 43-inch Ultrawide Monitors: One for the Gamer, One for the Office

Ultrawide monitors are all the rage, and now even bigger versions (Megawide? Magnawide?) are becoming surprisingly common.

Question about managing tags

So I finally got around to setting up (some) of the tag manipulation rules when adding books. I have a ton of old tags that seem to keep showing up when I move books around in libraries and just using the tag manager doesn't seem to work. The rules I am working with right now are just removing the tags. Best first step I can think of since there are so many changes that need to be made. My question is, when are the rules applied? Does the book have to be imported through "add book" or can it...

First doll of the year

I am doing a big clean-up in my studio and also trying to get some pieces moving along. Where I get tired of one activity, I switch over to the other. So, both are going slowly. Studio cleaning and rearranging is a big chore but I always find forgotten treasures and that makes it SO worth it. Anyway, HeH! I got one finished! He is a mustache man. So many skeletons. I love finding the perfect antique button. And yes, Christmas is over. Both the tree and my man are out on the porch.

Github is Now Free and That’s Great

Microsoft announced a change in GitHub pricing today, and it’s great for anyone learning to code. In the past, GitHub charged $7 a month for a private repository.

One:12 Collective Diabolik

Mezco Toyz is currently taking pre-orders for their One:12 Collective Diabolik figure. Presented in a sleek, all-black bodysuit with only his eyes peering through his cowl, the master burglar comes well equipped a number of useful accessories.  I had no idea about the classic Italian comic book character, but apparently Diabolik debuted back in 1962 by the Giussani sisters. Raised as an orphan on the secret island hideout of a criminal organization, Diabolik became a master of disguise – cra...

Belkin Shows Off Refreshed WeMo Light Switch with HomeKit Built In

At CES 2019, Belkin unveiled a new WeMo Light Switch that not only brings it up to date from the previous generation, but it also brings native HomeKit support without the need for the WeMo Bridge hub. The new light switch isn’t a dimmer (there’s already a WeMo Dimmer available that also has HomeKit support built in), but rather a simple on/off switch. It will come in either a single-pole version for $40 (which means that there’s only one switch controlling a light fixture), or you can get it i...

android pdf app with continuous highlighting

Hello I’m looking forward to buy me a new e-ink reader with android. Long times ago, I’ve used an Onyx Boox M96, which unfortunately broke after half a year (screen cracked). Since then I’m using Windows tablets with an active stylus to annotate PDFs (I’m using more or less only the text highlight function). On windows 10, there is an app called Drawboard PDF. A distinct feature of this app, which I don’t want to miss anymore, is continuous highlighting, you can choose something like a highl...
