Extract Pubdate from imported Magazines

I have a slew of periodicals that I've imported that are in the general format of Title: Title - YYYY Mmm (for instance MagPi - 2017 October) I'm trying to figure out how (if there's a way) to use Edit Metadata In Bulk to parse the titles, extract the date info (via RegEx) and insert it into the PubDate field for each title. Is this possible? I've had zero luck so far with a wide variety of options on the Search and replace dialog in Edit meta information. Thanks!

Forma Couldn't detect screen flickering on Kobo Forma. Does it mean no PWM?

Also I'm curious how other forma users test their unit (if there is any testing done :)) and what is the result? I tested using Iphone 7 Plus recording slow-mo video @ 240 fps. Te...

Speed Sights: Diamonds are a Shooter’s Best Friend

Speed Sights can be easily seen during the day. U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- It is not often that I take the time as a writer to review a set of pistol sights. When I write reviews of handguns I will often point out the advantages or drawbacks of the factory sights. Of course, when building a pistol from the ground-up I will mention why a particular set of sights were chosen. However, I came across a new set by a company called Speed Sights that was a bit different than what is out there. More so...

Chrome May Get Faster Ad Blocking While Breaking uBlock Origin

Ad blocker uBlock Origin “can no longer exist” if a proposed change to Chrome goes through. That’s according to Raymond Hill, the developer of uBlock Origin and uMatrix, in a comment on Chromium’s bug tracker. As spotted by The Register, Google engineers are proposing this change in the Chromium project’s bug tracker. Chromium is the open-source browser that forms the basis for Google Chrome, Opera, and soon Microsoft Edge. Don’t worry, though: This won’t break ad blockers entirely. Instead, Go...

‘Shazam!’ Funko POP Toys Spoil a Key Plot Point and Confirm Rumor

When Warner Bros. and DC gave Aquaman a December 2018 release date, it was clear that the focus would be on that film for the final part of the year. But it’s been over a month since that film splashed down in theaters, and attention is slowly turning back to Shazam!, the studio’s next major superhero movie. As the Zachary Levi-fronted comedy approaches its release date, a pair of Funko Pop! toys have seemingly spoiled one of the movie’s key plot points and confirmed a rumor that first popped u...
