Small Organized Spaces: How to Organize a Kitchen Drink Station

The following is a guest post about how to organize a kitchen drink station from regular contributor, Morgan from Morganize with Me . In our current season, raising three teens, our front door and garage door both feel like revolving doors. We often have kids (or young adults) lined up at our kitchen island chatting, eating, and drinking. I love hosting and welcoming these amazing kids into our home and I’m savoring this season. One of my mom hacks (or survival tips) is to create an organ...

Aura E2 WiFi does not reconnect after interruption

Hi, I originally posted a question on this forum because thought I had a WiFi timeout problem. Unfortunately it occurs when there is any disturbance in the connection. I am running XCSoar (6.8.11 stable) connected to a T-Beam SoftRF T-Beam device. The Kobo (Aura 2) only needs to communicate with the IOT T-Beam device sitting near to it in the cockpit of a sailplane. It appears that slight changes in the data from the T-beam are causing the wifi to disconnect (a test Android device listening to...

POTD: Adjusting the Trigger

Have you ever been to the shooting range and been forced to modify a firearm? When the custom trigger on my Vepr Molot 12 gauge shotgun failed me after years of use, it was time to change to a new one. Big competition ahead, no time to waste.

The Fast Twist 22 Creedmoor

Continuing with the conversation we were having a few days ago on new cartridges that answer questions nobody has asked, this new cartridge may be the next in line to fail. Nosler was the first company to launch a new super .22 with the release of the 22 Nosler. It boasted “close to .22-250 velocities” in a short case that could fit into a standard AR magazine. This cartridge was soon followed by Federal’s release of the .224 Valkyrie, which took on a bit of a different appeal. You see, the 22 N...

Send to Kindle iOS extension not working

I recently discovered that the Kindle app on iOS adds a SendToKindle share extension, so I gave it a try. I am able to share from Safari and other apps, choose "Send to Kindle". From there I can edit the title and author fields, which are pre-filled with the page title and site name, and leave the "Save to Kindle Library" option checked, and then hit send. It appears to do something (spinning progress indicator), followed by a modal pop-up dialog saying "Success; Your document has been uploa...

Politicizing the ATF

From David Codrea: During the briefing, the Chief Counsels Office provided a written brief and a PowerPoint presentation, which discussed automatically and single function of a trigger. The brief and PowerPoint presentation, based on the intent of Congress and the statutory text, detailed how even the Akins Accelerator was not a machinegun. However, Acting Director Sullivan decided, against the advice of the Chief Counsels Office, to declare the Akins Accelerator a machinegun. It was political.
