Invisibility

I 'll say more about this later, just catching a thought and testing video again. Mostly the Invisible Baste aka Glue Stitch approach is relaxed and the stitch shows on the other side. But it doesn't have to... I added a video to the Glue Stitch page over at Feel Free. But really I need a more detailed version. I'll get to it. We can also consider this a form of applique. And blind stitching but I might even call it the Secret Stitch. I have no real reason to do it this way here...

Rift Over NRA Highlights Fundamental Divide among Gun Owners

Some of us would argue with that. Strenuously. Others would decry that as “NRA bashing.” And the gap is only getitng wider. (NRA Facebook photo) U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- A recent series of AmmoLand articles reveals deep divisions between Second Amendment advocates and their perceptions of the National Rifle Association. Comments under the articles show emotional divisions among readers, with the vitriol on display one would generally expect to be reserved for gun-grabbers. I’ve seen some rea...

Nested tags flat display

My nested tags are not displaying how I would expect in the tag browser. I recently re-built my library and I suspect that's what caused this. Is there a way to fix this?

iBooks Wishlist

Hello, I was wondering if someone had the same issue as I have before heading to Apple's forums to further the research into the problem I have, which is : It looks like I have no more access to my iBooks wishlist. When I click on Wish List all that happens is the little wheel spinning, that's it. I tried signing out of iCloud, and then reboot, sign back in, no go. I'm using a Mac Mini with the latest OS installed. I'm a bit miffed because the iBooks wishlist is the only one I like to use d...

Importing Books: Ignore tags in metadata

I have a very specific tagging structure, but once in a while I'll import an eBook that has about a hundred random tags embedded in its metadata, which messes it up quite a bit. Although not difficult to fix afterwards, it's an annoyance that I'd prefer not to deal with. However, I'm not sure how to go about disabling it. I don't want to completely disable reading metadata from the file contents (some of the eBooks I download have rather obtuse filenames) and the Tag Mapper doesn't seem to work...
