Arguing With a Leftist

The writing bug is starting to bite again, so you may see some new content here, including (eventually) a mega-überpost I started back in October of last year, but for now just this little piece.A few days ago someone at Quora tagged me with the question:If both conservatives and liberals love USA, why there are such hostility and lack of trust towards each others?I left an answer, but someone else left this one:As a former Right turned Left, I assure you all there are smart and well educated pe...

A Garden From a Hundred Packets of Seed ~ James Fenton

I'm sitting here at my desk staring out at this... B The greenhouse swaddled and bandaged up in a valiant attempt to protect it from Storm Erik and any more Big Freezes, us having been a little too late to defend against the ravages of Storm Whatever-The-Last-One-Was. The door shunted ajar and the gale took out several of the back windows, now repaired. It's not so much the repairing, nuisance though it is, it's more the equation of number of pieces of glass x distance travelled across the gra...

Are Amazon's "Kindle Version" mangas low resolution?

So I recently got a 300ppi 7"8 e-reader and compared the same manga, one on the e-reader, and one the paper version. The paper version is 8" so not a huge difference in size. The paper version has much crisper text that is easier to see. It particularly makes a difference for furigana and small but complex kanji. I also tried reading the Kindle version on my PC but it seems the text is not as high-res as the paper format.

Collections

I've recently purchased the forma and uploaded all my epubs. I see I can add them into collections manually, is there a quicker way to do this. I was hoping that I could do via the root folder but nothing shows? I haven't really used Calibre much but the tags look ideal. I've read a few tuts on bookshelves but I'm not clear if thats the same thing I'm trying to achieve?

800 Illuminated Medieval Manuscripts Are Now Online: Browse & Download Them Courtesy of the British Library and Bibliothèque Nationale de France

Kazuo Ishiguro’s novel The Buried Giant begins with an immersive depiction of what it might have been like to live in a European village during the middle ages. Or what it might feel like for us moderns, at least. The couple at the center of the story spends several pages fretting over the loss of a candle, their only one. Without it, their nights are pitch black. In the day, they wander in a fog, unable to remember anything. Though the cause of this turns out to be dark magic, one can’t help t...

Windows 10’s April 2019 Update brings a long-awaited feature: Support for easily accessing, viewing, and even modifying Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) files from File Explorer or via the command line.

Bad News and Hope in Illinois

Bad News and Hope in Illinois Illinois – -(AmmoLand.com)- Illinois is a source of frustration for many Second Amendment supporters, especially those who have to live there. Politically, it has become dominated by Chicago, and many of those who wish to exercise their Second Amendment rights – and who have done so responsibly – find themselves facing more and more onerous legislation. That legislation is largely pushed by Chicago politicians who are either unable or unwilling to address the hig...

History of Landscapes Starts with Stonehenge. Really.

As threatened  promised, I’m blogging the History of Landscape course I’m taking at the University of Maryland, and here’s my first post. The (fabulous) teacher I’ll be quoting is Caren Yglesias. Interestingly to me, when I tell people I’m taking a class in landscape history I get questions like – does it start with Olmsted? English gardens? I love answering that it actually starts with Stonehenge because of the look of bewilderment on their faces. So what IS a landscape, anyway? Wikipedia say...

Still and serene

You’ve just seen beautiful color images of Buffalo gardens in July. Western New York doesn’t quite look like that now. Color is not the first thing I think of when I do that initial glance out the window, to see what it’s like out and check whether the plow guy got to our back alley. When I review the many, many images I have of WNY in winter, I am struck by the pure beauty of white, black, and gray, with occasional flashes of silver. Often, on the way to work, I want to pull over and somehow ca...

Reshaping of American Attitudes Toward Firearms ~ VIDEO

Opinion American Bullet Flag Freedom Second Amendment New York – -(AmmoLand.com)- “What we need to do is change the way in which people think about guns, especially young people, and make it something that's not cool, that it's not acceptable, it's not hip to carry a gun anymore, in the way in which we changed our attitudes about cigarettes. . . .
