Walmart Kobo update

The one Walmart that took forever to get electricity to the Kobo kiosk finally has an Aura 2 on display (only took about 3 months!). Actually the display was clean and fairly well stocked (there were a few empty pegs at the very bottom, left corner). I thought, "wow, is someone finally interested?" Well, not exactly.

Difficulty with conversion of (some) HTML

Hello, all... I am using code that does syntax coloring of code and dumps it as HTML. Images here: - screenshot of generated HTML - screenshot of HTML rendered in Chrome - screenshot of epub shown in iBooks [The images wouldn't insert properly for some reason, so I just left bare URLs here.] Note that the epub switches typefaces back and forth (and worse, it switches size back and forth). Any idea what's going on? Thanks, Hal Fulton https://pasteboard.co/HXRtnUZ.png https://pasteboard.co/...

Kings of the Yukon - An Alaskan River Journey ~ Adam Weymouth

I spent the last few weeks of 2018 paddling along the Yukon and the best thing was I didn't even know I wanted to go. Hadn't planned it in the diary, no travel insurance, no fretting about getting there. The canoe held up after a few  dicey moments over some rapids, and the grizzlies spared us. I've stopped off hither and yon and learned a lot about Alaska, a country that is the size of France, Germany, Italy and the British Isles combined (population 277 million) and yet is home to just 741,894...
