Small Organized Spaces: Organizing a Pet Drawer in 15 Minutes or Less

The following is a guest post, in the small organized spaces series, about organizing a pet drawer in 15 minutes or less from regular contributor, Morgan from Morganize with Me . The question of the month seems to be, “Are you watching the Marie Kondo show?” Although most of the people who have asked me don’t quite get the name right. They call it the tidying show, the Netflix organizing series, or my favorite, the Kondo-ing thing. My answer is, “Yes!” I binged watched...

BOTW: Sixth Set Results

Drumroll…..And the winner for the sixth set was Jim’s Higgins Build with an overwhelming 45% of the votes (Kevin’s AR9 build came in second with 27% of the votes). The randomly picked winning voter was Zach C. I think Jim’s build won because of the Walter White picture… Jim will receive a gift card to Brownells […] Read More … The post BOTW: Sixth Set Results appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

Refurb Kindle 4 from Woot can't login to Amazon

I just got my first Kindle and attempted several times to login to my Amazon account without success. I even disabled 2FA which didn't help. I assume that Woot, being owned by Amazon, is not selling stolen Kindles, so that leads me to believe that the software is out of date. The sale page alleged that the Kindles were checked by Amazon techs. I logged in with my Amazon account and just assumed that Amazon would add the Kindle to my account when they shipped. I can't tell what the current sof...

I am at my whits end even after reading some other threads on this topic here i still can't figure it out:smack::blink:

Getting “Slices” Today for a Stronger Second Amendment Tomorrow

Opinion Right to Carry by State Map Updated for 2018 United States of America – -(AmmoLand.com)- We’ve discussed both the need for an honest evaluation of the present political situation of the Second Amendment as well as the need to use the right tactics and strategies for a given job. Now, we will delve a little into the tactical/strategic area some more, this time by looking at a tactic that was advocated a long time ago by an anti-Second Amendment zealot – and how it can be used to regai...

Over at Kirkus: In Defense of the Anti-Hero

We are over at Kirkus today for our regular column! It’s Thea’s turn this time, with an impassioned defense of some favorite anti-heroes–inspired by her reading of Kingdom of the Blazing Phoenix by Julie C Dao. Heroes are great and all, but are a dime a dozen in YA SFF. To me, nuanced, flawed, layered characters like Xifeng (Forest of a Thousand Lanterns) are far more interesting than their heroic counterparts (Sorry, Jade). For more anti-heroes of note in YA SFF, “>check out the li...

Monster Jam Eliminates Incentive for Gun Owners to Attend Their Shows

Does this crowd look like gun imagery offends it? (Monster Jam Facebook photos) U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “As gun outrage grew, Monster Jam quietly stripped weapons from its monster trucks,” the Tampa Bay Times reports. “Feld Entertainment had already been the target of protesters when it owned the circus, but they skirted the gun debate early.” “Gun outrage grew”?  With whom?  Do they get a lot of whiny harridans in pink pussy hats registering anti-gun indignation at monster truck events the...

Convert Mathjax to AZW3

Hi. First of all, I want to thank Mr. Goyal for his great software and the help he provides in this forum. I'm having trouble converting an HTML that includes some Mathjax equations (like the example on https://manual.calibre-ebook.com/typesetting_math.html) into AZW3 for Kindle. The Calibre viewer displays everything well, but I noticed that the AZW3 file still loads the Mathjax library, wich cannot be used in a Kindle. Is there a way to make the conversion using SVG images for displaying the...

Books not showing up in my library

Hey y'all, I've had a Kindle for about a month now. I was having no issues with it at the beginning when I first bought it: I could purchase items through the Kindle and they would download to my library. But after a few weeks of nonuse any title that I purchase or try to sample is not showing up in my library. This is very frustrating for me. If any could provide me with some help it would be greatly appreciated.

Recommend an ePub3 using Bootstrap?

This is probably a dumb question, but can anyone point me towards an ePub3 using Bootstrap? If you type "Bootstrap" into Amazon's search box, you get books with Bootstrap in the title. I'd like to find an ePub that actually uses Bootstrap. I'd simply like to see what you can do with Bootstrap in an ePub, plus it would be nice to have a book that I can use as a model if I decided to go for it. I asked a question about Bootstrap about a year ago, and it looks like the situation hasn't changed mu...

Help fixing Chicago Tribune Recipe

I have used calibre for years and love it, but I am new to using calibre to add news to my kindle. I would really like to get the Chicago Tribune, but it does not seem to fetch the news correctly. I tried other recipes, like NYT and CNN, and they work great. The Chicago Tribune, however, is pretty much a blank book with a couple headers. I am not a programmer, so I have failed, so far, by tinkering with the code. I uploaded the "fetched" newspaper I get for the Chicago Tribune. I tried updatin...

Yunsong Zhao: Charges Dropped on Obscure Rifle law after Eight Months in Custody U.S.A. -(Ammoland.com)- On September 24, 2018, Yunsong Zhao was vindicated. He had done nothing illegal. The evidence against him was so weak, the judge did not let the case go to trial. He dismissed the case based on lack of evidence. From wsls.com: CHRISTIANSBURG — A judge on Monday dismissed the firearms charge against former Virginia Tech student Yunsong Zhao, saying that he didn’t believe the police officer ...

magnetic micro usb adapter charger

Has anyone outfitted their kobo's with a micro usb magnetic adapter charger? Since we're constantly plugging them in to charge or download books I would think this would save the micro usb port from wear. So does anyone recommend any particular ones? What's the difference between a gen2 and gen3 netdot 3rd generation etc... - I'm unfamiliar with the naming conventions - which one should a kobo use?

can i have *both* syncing across android/kindle paperwhite AND bold/font weight?

Hi: So I primarily read on my kindle. I use calibre and the KFX output plugin to get weighted fonts there. But I also like the ability to read on my phone and android tablet. I get most of my books from public domain and not from the Amazon ecosystem. Right now I'm using Moon Reader+ on my phone/tablet and the paperwhite to read. I also like having the option to do font weighting on paperwhite. So it seems like my options are: 1) Send all files to my @kindle email. This would achieve syn...

Azw3 vs dual mobi: pros and cons?

I've been using old school mobi all these years, but now with an unjailbroken device, I need to use a newer format to have custom font. Azw3 and dual mobi look pretty much the same, but are there pros and cons of using one format vs another? (I'm using Calibre, though I can use another converter if need be.)

Shutdown

So, ya’ll surviving this .gov shutdown thing? Apparently, after 30 days of furlough, federal jobs are permanently vacated. I doubt that will happen. Meanwhile, economic illiterate Bernie Sanders on the twitterer: The scientists tell us that the future of the planet is endangered by climate change. Meanwhile, because of Trump's government shutdown, about 95% of E.P.A. employees have been furloughed because they are "non-essential." How insane is that? pic.twitter.com/1XiUvqbzUf — Bernie San...
