Watch the "Fyre Festival" Documentary in Netflix

Non-prepper/survivalists berate preppers because they believe "Eh, no way people will lose their minds after a day or so.". That doc is just another example: When law and order breaks down, people will waste NO time in losing their minds!. "We're nine meals from anarchy."

[Kobo] "update reading progress" suddenly not working?

up until yesterday, whenever I connected my device to Calibre, it would automatically start updating the reading progress, and would show me the books whose progress had changed, then offer to synch them on Goodreads. This morning, nothing. I have made no changes to Calibre, nor any other software that I'm aware of, no changes at all. Yet when I connect my H2O2, I see the "jobs" spinner icon show "1" then briefly "2", then nothing, and when it's back to "0", no book statuses have been update. I ...

Fundraising to save Burbank's horror bookstore Dark Delicacies

Burbank's amazing quarter-century institution Dark Delicacies is a horror book-, memoribilia- and clothing-store that is a community hub for genre creators, hosting a wonderful stream of events, signings, and even an annual chance to get your photo took with Krampus at a Christmas open-house. It's also a potential casualty of the skyrocketing rents in Magnolia Park, where greedy landlords are throwing out the neighborhood's unique indie tenants as fast as they can in the hopes of luring in ...

@DiapDealer ISBN vs UUID

Hello DiapDealer... Found an old thread where you answered the question I have, which is how to use the ISBN in the metadata, vs the UUID... but I am new to opf and metadata code and am too dense ... I kindly need an example of what you mean. You said in this previous post in 2013): "It's quite trivial to change your ePub to use the ISBN identifier as the unique identifier (in Sigil) and get rid of the autogenerated UUID at any time, however: "Add the ISBN metadata (either through the metadata ...

So you know how you've all read a thousand posts that start with "I used to have a Kindle 3 and......sat in a drawer for a long time.....tried to start it up again.....only shows the empty battery screen.....tried soft reset......had to do a hard reset.....etc..."? Just substitute one of those. For the first part of this post. You've heard it all before.

Line-height from ePub to AW3

Working in ePub, I have text that is split by tag, where the tage has a css style that adjusts the height of the break. Code: Line 1Line 2 css: .brheight {   line-height: 2.5em;   } This displays without issue in ePub, but when I convert to AZW3, the line height is re-set to 1em. To be clear, the new stylesheet still retains the same css styling (2.5em), but for some reason, the display doesn't reflect the code. Any ideas as to what's happening in the conversion process that causes...

Keep Telling Your Members of Congress to Oppose “Universal” Background Check Bills

Opinion Universal Background Checks Don’t Work, so Why Do We Want More of Them? Fairfax, VA – -(Ammoland.com)- On January 8, 2019, two bills were introduced in Congress to impose so-called “universal” background checks. The bills, H.R. 8 and S. 42, are being misleadingly described as simply requiring background checks on all sales of firearms, but this is just a small part of what these overbroad pieces of legislation would do. A vote on this gun control legislation could take place as early...

Group news items from the same source

In Calibre News view, how can you customize the view to visually group multiple news items from the same source? For example, say you download daily from the the New York Times. You end up with multiple dated New York Times items in your News view; it gets cluttered over time. It would be handy to be able to create a custom view that groups all news items from the same source. ETA: Here's a screenshot showing the problem of multiple dated entries from different sources.

KUAL "listing bump" proof of concept

The list view listing for the KUAL booklet drifts down the screen and eventually off the first page as other books are opened even if KUAL has been used in the meantime. That is, the access time for the booklet KUAL does not get updated, unlike the kindlet KUAL. The good news is that updating p_lastAccess for the KUAL record in cc.db raises KUAL to the second entry of the list view listing with the Recent filter after another book is opened and closed. The bad news is that the sqlite3 on board ...
