Kobo Touch 2 WiFi Timeout

Hi, I've done a search and found some info on the "insomnia" patch to stop WiFi switch off but there doesn't appear to be a version available (I'm happy to install an old version of the firmware). I'm an XCSoar user and need to use the wifi continuously to connect to a T-Beam SoftRF Flarm device. When the wifi stops I need to restart XCSoar and loose all my flight information. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Fantasy Dyalhis, Nictzin: The Weird Tales of Nictzin Dyalhis (2019), v1

LITTLE IS known of Nictzin Dyalhis other than his name, Nictzin Wilstone Dyalhis, and his dates: 1873-1942. His surname is thought to be of Welsh origin, and his first name resulted from his father's fascination for all things Aztec. He was a chemist by profession. Over a period of fifteen years he published just 8 stories in Weird Tales magazine, and his small output, odd name, and pursuit of privacy made him a man of mystery. This collection contains those eight Weird Tales. He also wrote ...

POTD: Captured British Musket with US Markings

The lockplate on this ca. 1745 musket is, to me, the ultimate symbol of the American Revolution. Edward Jordan was a British gunsmith, active between 1733 and 1760. This example of his work found its way to the colonies and was originally in the hands of a Redcoat. At some point, the gun became a battlefield […] Read More … The post POTD: Captured British Musket with US Markings appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

Concealed Carry Corner: Watches, Cards And Phones – Discreet Carry

“Hand over your watch!” Why certainly, Mr. Burglar. That’s the headline for an article in Popular Science magazine from December 1917. It’s proofed that some things never change, even after 101 years. If you’re approached by a mugger and you’ve got a nice watch, he’s going to want it. Leonard Woods of St. Louis, MO, knew […] Read More … The post Concealed Carry Corner: Watches, Cards And Phones – Discreet Carry appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

Is a kindle keyboard with 3g worth it for $37.89 shipped off ebay in 2019

I bought one off ebay over the weekend, and due to my psychological makeup and in the interest of trying to stimulate discussion on one of my favorite forums, I'm wondering if I made a decent choice.

Downpour DRM?

I was just about to buy a book at Downpour and got a popup telling me the title was DRMed and could only be listened to in the Downpour app. I have the vague idea that there was a discussion of Downpour DRM here but I can't find it. How bad is it? Can it be bypassed?

Clearing the Recent Searches Dropdown Menu in Calibre's E-book Viewer

I'm using the E-Book Viewer software that comes with Calibre (osx) in order to search the isbn tags of my epub files, and I really liked having "isbn" be the only result I got from the dropdown menu of my recent searches because I could just click the menu and quickly click "isbn" from there. Anyway, I accidentally added another word to the searches, so now when I click the dropdown menu, it shows "isbn" and "(other search)" instead of just "isbn". Is there any way to clear the recent searches...

Defending the Second Amendment in School

New Prauge High School Andy Dalsin United States – -(AmmoLand.com)- High school and college are already hard enough. But when you are a Second Amendment supporter, it can be downright perilous at times. Don’t just take my word for it look at some media reports: Students have been kicked out of class for wearing NRA T-shirts under the nonsense argument that it “promoted violence.” Others have faced worse, including suspensions, for standing up for our freedoms. These days, though with the ongo...

Billiani White Chair

The Billiani White Chair is not named White for its color—though there is a fetching version in cream, the epitome of Scandinavian style—but rather for its clean and welcoming aesthetic. Created by Finnish designer Harri Koskinen, White is sculpted in striking ash wood. Its clean and uncluttered lines border on the severe but are tempered nicely by the wider proportions of its legs, seat, and back, as well as its upholstered options. Manufacturer Billiani says, “If White were a model it would ...

Nendoroid Thor: DX Version

From the hit movie "Thor: Ragnarok" and GoodSmile comes the  Nendoroid Thor: DX Version . The nearly 4-inch tall figure comes with four different face plates including a serious expression for heading into battle, a rather cute shouting expression, an expression with white eyes for when he uses his lightning powers, as well as the highly-requested eye patch face plate. Optional parts include the swords that were featured in the movie, a club, his shield, the helmet from his confrontation with ...

If You Kill A Nurse, You Get A Hearse

Opinion Kenneth Freeman, Carlie Beaudin USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Did you know the State of Wisconsin was the first state in the Union to outlaw capital punishment? In fact, before outlawing the death penalty prior to the Civil War only one person was ever executed in Wisconsin. Even after Jeffrey Dahmer the so called “Milwaukee Monster” tortured, killed and ate his prey of young boys, Wisconsin still did not change their statute. When you watch those police dramas on TV and in movies, and the...

Marlon James Talks Superheroes, the Joy of Fantasy, and His Stunning New Book Black Leopard, Red Wolf

Marlon James is already a big deal; he won the prestigious Man Booker Prize in 2015 for his crime novel A Brief History of Seven Killings. But Black Leopard, Red Wolf—the first entry in his Dark Star fantasy trilogy, which the Jamaican-born author himself dubbed “the African Game of Thrones”—levels up in a huge way.Read more...

Kobo Forma: changing button behaviour

Is there a way to edit the "Kobo eReader.conf" file such that you change the behaviour of the buttons so that they *both* turn a page forward? I saw that's a feature of a so called "patch" that can be installed for the Kobo. I assume this is a mild kind of hack of the firmware that allows for more customization. But I don't really feel like installing that patch (just yet). However, if it would be simply a matter of adding or chaning a line in the "eReader.conf", I could try doing that. MTIA.

A civil rights victory

This seems like a big deal: Today, Joshua Prince and myself secured another victory for Second Amendment jurisprudence in Miller v. Sessions, et al., 2:17-cv-02627 in an issue of first impression across the United States. Judge Eduardo Robreno of the Middle District of Pennsylvania ruled in a 25 page memorandum that it was unconstitutional, as-applied to Mr. Miller, to prevent him from exercising his Second Amendment right as a result of a 1998 misdemeanor conviction under the vehicle code spec...

a de Blasio special

Like you and me, only better: A politically connected businesswoman got gun permit applications upgraded and rubber-stamped by the NYPDs corrupt license division in early 2014, multiple sources told the Daily News. Brooklyn real estate agent Charlene Gayle allegedly received the VIP treatment when she accompanied members of the Orthodox Jewish community seeking full-carry firearms licenses, the sources said. Ex-NYPD Lt. Paul Dean alluded to the allegations in paperwork filed in Manhattan Federal...

Court

Apologies for not posting. I have caught the creeping death. Ok, fine, it’s a head cold. My head has produced more snot in the last four days than it has in all my previous years on the planet. And I had to go to court because people don’t like to pay their bills. If you still have faith in “the system”, a day in court will cure you of that particular malady. But I digress. It went my way. Of the 50 or so cases on the docket, 3 of them were some check cashing place v. sumdood. 1 was mine. And t...

If the Army Stands With Maduro, What Is Plan B? ~ VIDEO

Opinion USA – -(Ammoland.com)- “Pay the soldiers. The rest do not matter.” This was the deathbed counsel given to his sons by Roman Emperor Septimius Severus in A.D. 211. Nicolas Maduro must today appreciate the emperor's insight. For the political survival of this former bus driver and union boss hangs now upon whether Venezuela's armed forces choose to stand by him or to desert him and support National Assembly leader Juan Guaido. Last Wednesday, Guaido declared Maduro's election last May t...

CSS selectors
