Maintain a list of previously used editors for each file type (xhtml, jpeg, mp4, etc), rather than just the most recently used editor for each file type. Sometimes I can't recall which tool I used for some obscure task, just seeing a list of names would jog the neurons - particularly with non text editors. BR

But that's not the topic of this post.) Since my last post (Fire and Chaparral - Some Questions) I've been doing some reading, hand wringing, and hacking at defenseless plants--the ones in obviously wrong places such as slap up against a structure. Digging out the grasse...

Another Public Domain question

I have just started work on Hoffmann's Strange Stories, having taken the text from the Internet Archive. The book was published by Burnham Brothers of Boston in 1855, but the translator is not named. Would this book be accepted as being in the Public Domain, and eligible to be added to the MR library?

Sources for Peel & Stick Wallpaper

Thanks so much for the positive feedback and comments on my latest bathroom makeover! For most of you, the black and white tropical wallpaper was the big hit! When designing bathrooms, if I’m not covering the walls with tile, then I’m likely going to use wallpaper! The peel & stick varieties are easy to install and even more easily removable, so they’re great for renters or those taking their first step into the arena of wallpaper. In 2017, I rounded up some favorite removable wallpapers and th...

Der Stern von Siam. Die Sirene des »Stern von Siam« heulte ihren Abschiedsgruß über die Gärten, Häuser und zahllosen Tempel von Bangkok hin.

Looking at the html of a Kindle Create (kpf) file

I'm playing about with Kindle Create, and I'd love to see the html I am,um, Creating. Is there any way to do that, short of actually publishing the book and then Unpacking it? The book is a short one, about 20K words I think, and I was impressed that the published size is promised to be 0.3 MB with a download fee of 5 cents. That suggests that the html is not monstrous, doesn't it?

It’s Bloom Day

And I have not posted one of these for years, so, as a reminder: on the 15th of every month, garden bloggers post what is in flower in their gardens. The tradition was started by Carol of May Dreams Gardens. Normally I would never select January 15 as the day to jump back into the Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day game, as what I have in January is pretty much like the above. However, I’m in Key West at the moment, so I am appropriating its plants for my GBBD post. I know some of these: ...

Searching for accented characters in Tag Browser

I like to use the original author names with accented characters but searching for authors with accented characters in the Tag Browser is difficult. Adding the option "Unaccented characters match accented characters" in the settings for the Tag Browser (as it is for the general Search settings) would be beneficial.
