Short Fiction The Edgar Wallace Collection Vol 11, v1

This series of amusing short stories was not collected until 2015, although nine of them had appeared in a Wallace collection called "The Undisclosed Client and Other Stories". They are the tales of Police Constable Lee, on the beat in Notting Dale, which was then a notoriously deprived slum squeezed between Notting Hill to the east, Shepherds Bush to the west, and Holland Park to the south.

tutorial on torrents, trackers?

Currently, I am only using SoulSeek to look for ebooks. I have heard there are other even better sources, like Myanonymous.net. But I am not clear on how to set up an account. I have heard that one needs to have a "seedbox." I have no idea what that is. I would really like to join some of these other resources, but need some kind of tutorial.

added custom column icons render larger than original icons

I'm trying to use column icon rules to map some custom column text to icons: the columns already contains 'Yes' and 'No' and those are displayed as checkmark and cross, respectively, as they should. I'm using copies of those same two icons to create my new icons, and everything works, except that the new icons (which are being placed in the cc_icons directory by calibre, as expected) are being displayed at a slightly larger scale than the original ones. At a glance I'd say they're about 50% bi...

Leupold DeltaPoint Pro Micro Red Dot Sight 2.5 MOA – Review

Leupold DeltaPoint Pro U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- Since my introduction to red dots on pistols several years ago with the Roland Special, I haven't strayed much from the Trijicon RMR. There have been other mini red dots on the market that have caught my attention, specifically the Shield RMS, Holosun HS507C, and the Leupold DeltaPoint Pro. Since the DeltaPoint Pro has been arguably the strongest competitor to the Trijicon RMR, I wanted to get some quality time with one. Before we get into my ex...

Command line conversion not including metadata in cover generation

Hi, I'm trying to convert files via a batch file, which works fine with just the filename using this syntax: ebook-convert "filename.html" "filename.epub" What I'd like is to add the publisher name to the front cover. In the GUI, I've set the sub-title template to {publisher}, and unchecked the 'get metadata from file only' option. When I generate covers from the GUI, it works. But when I run it from the CLI or batch the metadata isn't added to the cover. The syntax I'm using is: ebook-conver...

Oasis 1 internal battery, three years in

I bought an Oasis in May of 2016, and had an unfortunate warranty replacement four months later when I dropped it in the road and a car ran over it. The refurbished replacement has now been running for over two and a half years with heavy use every single day and God knows how many partial charges from 40-60% or thereabouts, and its warranty is running out: the internal battery seemed to be growing much worse (and *drastically* worse after the update to 5.10.2), with charging case charges showin...

A word of thanks to all the devs

Through my own stupidity, I had to reset my voyage and lost my jailbreak. I'm now stuck with stock firmware and remembering how much less useable it is for me without the jailbreak and customizations. (My vision is 20/200 at best and I spend a lot time tweaking the UI to what I need to be, which isn't possible without the jailbreak.) As usual, you don't fully appreciate how good a thing is till you lose it :/ But yeah, I want to say thanks to all the devs who've done great work over the years to...

Goes Back A Page

Occasionally, and for no reason that I can determine, when I hit the right side of my screen to go forward a page, instead, it goes back a page. This behavior is really annoying. My wife, who has the previous model Nook, says hers occasionally does the same thing. Is this a known problem or behavior with Nooks? Is there a way to fix this?
