POTD: Downright Massive Paper Shotshells

The shotshells in the photo are early 20th century offerings from Remington. On the right edge of the photo is your standard 12 gauge. On the opposite edge is a monstrous 3 gauge shell. I can only imagine what was running through the mind of the unfortunate soul who loaded the gun with a bore […] Read More … The post POTD: Downright Massive Paper Shotshells appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

Burbank’s horror haven Dark Delicacies is moving, thanks to generous fans and a tweet from Guillermo del Toro

Whether you’re a die-hard horror movie and fiction fan, a professional author or filmmaker of the stuff or just a casual stroller through Burbank’s quirky Magnolia Park business district, Dark Delicacies has been an institution for nearly 25 years. One that seemed doomed just a few weeks ago. Del and Sue Howison, the husband-and-wife owners/founders of the first purely horror-oriented book and gift store announced that, when their current lease ends in May, they would have to leave the space Dar...

The Long Darkness - A Parallel Story to The Danged Rocks

Chapter 1 “Oh, for the love of …..” Steve Miller exclaimed as the television and lights shut off. The house was instantly pitch black inside. The blinds had been drawn tight in an attempt to dissuade any trick-or-treaters from intruding on Steve’s evening, so no ambient light was visible. Better to be thought a child molester than keep going to the door all night. Too bad it didn’t stop all of the little snots. It was dark enough Steve couldn’t even see shadows as his eyes worked to adjust...

Der Mord im Warenhause. Wir waren hinter den beiden Gaunern Mautley und Bickpool und ihrer Millionenbeute her — seit vierzehn Tagen.

Adding fonts results in weird font names

I've manually added three fonts to my Kobo Forma: Bitter, Bookerly and Literata. I've done this the proper way, AFAIK: each font contains four files, correctly named, and I've put them in the folder "font" in the root of the device. The fonts show up in the list of fonts, but so do these fonts: KBJ-TsukuMinPr6N-RB KBJ-UDKakugo Pr6N M I'm not sure if these are new fonts, different names for any of the added fonts, or different names for factory fonts that had a more recognizable name before I...

How to Check the Status of AppleCare on your Apple Devices

No matter whether your Apple device is in its initial AppleCare warranty period or covered by AppleCare+, checking its current coverage can be the first step in getting a repair. Here’s how to check what’s covered, and what isn’t. As many people have learned over the years, having Apple devices repaired outside of AppleCare can be a costly endeavor, especially given the current state of notebook repairability. Nothing is cheap when it’s all bonded or soldered to a logic board, so you’ll probabl...

Duplicat book folders

Good day I am fairly new to Calibre and don't use it very often but here goes. My wife has a large Calibre file and today noticed that most the books in it are there twice and in the same format IE mobi or epob.

If I open them they contain the exact same files. The Calibre folder is 19.7 GB and contains over 21.000 folders and 5...

How to Block Specific Artists on Spotify

Spotify is beta testing a feature that will you block music from an artist you don’t like. The option will likely come to everyone eventually but remains in testing for now. The good news is that it’s pretty easy to use. Sometimes you really can’t stand a particular artist’s music. It’s not that you don’t like the person, but the music they put out doesn’t sync with you. And while Spotify is great for discovering new music and artists, it can be aggressive to suggest well-known musicians whethe...
