Larger e-ink reader for my dad

My dad is looking into getting an e-reader and I will be sharing some of the e-books I have on my computer with him, some of which are epub and others of which are pdf. These are the features he knows he wants for sure: e-ink (not tablet) - he wants the great battery and easy-on-eyes aspects good pdf handling (I spotted one 177 mb pdf on my hard drive, for instance - an extreme case, but it'd be nice if it could handle that) decently large size (at least 10-inch) frontlight some kind of SD car...

Weekend Range Time

Spent Saturday with friends and neighbors in the field.  It was nice to bang steel (12″ diameter) at 100 yards and 200 yards with 5.56mm, and nice to hit steel at 340 yards with 6.5 Creedmoor (Ruger Precision).  That Ruger is a nice gun, but heavy as a load of bricks. It was also nice to bang steel at 100 yards with a Marlin 30-30 lever-gun using iron sights.  And it was especially nice to hit the same steel at 100 yards with my CMMG PSB .45 ACP, using only an EOTech 1X red dot holographic sight...

Review Of Holosun 507c Pistol Red Dot Sight

John appears to like the Holosun, and it’s cheaper than the competitors. I did a little time with a pistol red dot sight on Saturday for the first time, and reflexively looked for the front post and tried to co-witness it with the dot.  That’s wrong, but breaking that habit will be tough if I get a pistol red dot sight.  I’ll need to spend some time turning training time into muscle memory.

Another Cop Screw-up With Weapons-Mounted Lights

News from Colorado: A Denver police officer will be suspended for 10 days without pay for almost shooting a man in the head by accident. The Denver Post reports Asher Rose will begin his suspension later this month for the Dec. 15, 2017 incident. The officer joined the department in January 2017 and did not have any previous disciplinary issues. Investigators say Rose and another officer were responding to a report of a drunk man trying to stop traffic in south Denver. The man ran away and hid u...

Are Great Deer Rifles Fading Into History?

Opinion by Rick Windham: I have picked up several classic rifles at gun shows. They are rifles I read about as I grew up dreaming of big game hunts. They are chambered in calibers that may not be totally forgotten, but they are off the radar of most younger hunters. For example, I was in an antelope camp a couple of years ago and there was a younger hunter (early 30s) in the group. Most of the other rifles in camp were calibers like .243, .308, 7mm Mag, but I had a .264 Winchester Magnum. The gu...

My Voyage losing battery power?

Hello good people, I have had my Voyage since it first came out (wifi + 3G). Love everything about it. However I am noticing that the battery is going down faster than it used to. Is that possible? Other than a few very shiny pixels in a couple of places, I am otherwise still happy with it. Is it better to replace the battery (and where does one find it)? Or is it better to find an old Voyage? I don't feel yet like upgrading to a Paperwhite but that might be the best solution. Grateful for a...

ePub > mobi both - Settings

Hi, My computer died and I had to install everything on a new one. I have an issue though, I don't find a way to convert my ebooks to mobi in order to have a dual mobi I can send to Amazon cloud. I remember vaguely I found years ago some settings that were allowing me to do the conversion correctly. I've tried to do some conversion, removing the PDOC prefix and choosing the mobi dual, but when I send it to my Cloud, my Kindle seems to get only an old mobi (with cover) Can someone help me wi...

K4 Kindle 4 +++ Auto Changing Screensaver's PNG Quotes

:hatsoff: Hi, My name's Dmitry. Dmitry from Russia. A couple of days ago I thought if I could use my old :rolleyes: Kindle 4 as a screen on my table, while I’m doing my daily work at the :bam: computer, so it could :bulb2: show me a new quote which I :blink: don’t know, and doing it with an interval say 5 minutes for a little pause to :chinscratch: think about every read quote.

How to disable tap to turn page in Koreader

Hi all! I've been using Koreader for a while and I'm reading this ebook with lots of footnotes, where each footnote is a link to the end of the book. The problem is when I click on a link and the link is on either side of the page, Koreader doesn't always follow the link. But instead it goes the previous or the next page. So, is there a way to disable the tap to go to next page feature in Koreader so that this won't be a problem? Thanks.

‘It’ Making-Of Book Coming this September, in Time for ‘It Chapter Two’

I don’t know about you, but I’m a big fan of those coffee table books that delve into the making of a movie. Usually loaded with concept art, interviews, and behind-the-scenes photos, they’re a great way to gain insight into a movie’s production. After I saw Andy Muschietti‘s adaptation of Stephen King’s It, I hoped a making-of book would be released showcasing the production design that went into bringing the tale of terror to life. Sadly, it didn’t happen. But it looks like I’m finally going ...

Top progress bar customization

Hi, All, does anybody know, how to customize the size (and font type and size) of top progress bar (highlighted it in attachment). The main reason I switched to KOReader - it has option to completely disable bottom bar! Hurray for this! :thumbsup: But top bar looks a bit too big a font.

In old versions there was cr3.ini settings (crengine.page.header.font.size=10), but now they do not work at all.. :wall: Does anybody know how to manag...

collect editings in a memcache before saving them alltogether

Dear Sirs, I wonder if there is an option mechanism in the current release of Calibre so that one can collect somewhere in a memory cache several editings within one library and then eventually save all them in one click. In facts in my library it is a pain to wait for every saving of library (it lasts minutes each). I am aware that is not save in case of power outage, but it would be a nice thing if developer could let user to take his/her own risk.
