Echo street: The crash

Prologue — The Buggin Family Thanksgiving Day, 2017 201 North Echo Street Sadie’s Creek, IL Jaykeem Royce hefted the five-gallon bucket onto the table. The sealed mylar bags filled with rice and beans rattled inside. “Great,” Gallenjorn droned. “More wasted food.” Royce glanced around the wine cellar. White buckets filled with food were stacked atop each other along both sides of the wall, filling in shelves where wine casks were supposed to be. Royce stared at his foster brother. The man...

Sell Kobo Touch Screen (eReader Can't Charge)

FOR PARTS. DOES NOT TAKE A CHARGE Okeh. Now that we’ve got that out of the way, I have here a perfectly working, unscratched Kobo Touch that can’t be charged. It was in the middle of booting when the last electron made its final dance. The screen froze in that state. By "perfectly working" I mean, it worked perfectly until my daughter got so frustrated with the micro USB port that she somehow managed to pop the port off of the mother board while plugging it in. So. That happened. Not so perfect...

Spyderco SC230GP-BRK Lil’ Native Plain G10 Knife Review

Spyderco SC230GP-BRK Lil' Native Plain G10 Knife Idaho – -(AmmoLand.com)- Ok, today we’ll talk about the second folder that I’ve tested in the Native line of Sypderco. Even though it is listed as a compact gentlemen-sized knife, don’t let it fool you. Yes, the Spyderco Lil’ Native C230G does only have a 2 1/8-inch blade but due to the design of the knife it allows you to choke down on the blade and the handle then fills your hand. So, you’re not ending up holding it with only three fingers. ...

Access a copy of calibre that's on a network share?

I have a copy of my calibre library stored on a network share. Is it possible for CC to make a connection to that share to access the database that way? I'm only interested in readonly access (can also be enforced with a readonly login). CC already supports reading a copy that is stored on a cloud provider, so it's not much of a stretch to just consider a network share as another provider. As for remote access, I can vpn into my home network to access the share. Thanks, Robert
