Is The Teplo Worth Buying?

Introduction We have all been inundated with fancy techno-centric tea brewing devices over the past few years. Not your average kettles seem to come out of nowhere to bring the "next best thing" to tea each time. And each time we are forced to evaluate our compunction for the thematic enjoyment of the tea brewing rituals we've come to know and love. It's a wonder then why these brewing devices keep coming out. Why release a product so similar to where others have failed? Why bank, as a startup ...

Is there a way to check the size of a virtual library?

For example, I have a "to export" library to indicate which files I want on my Kindle Dx. My Dx has 3.6 gb of space, and a lot of books can run 50 mb+. I have a lot of space issues between reference books and interesting reading. Also, I currently tag a lot of books "incompatible," "extra," "wait," or "read," to exclude them from "to export." Does anyone have a better solution to swap books in when they want to look at more important/useful works on a given topic and swap them out when they d...

Lanny ~ Max Porter

I seem to recall I made some pronouncement (an observation rather than a criticism) somewhere back in 2016 about how much I struggled with this... Not with the book, though I was so slow to realise that Grief is the Thing With Feathers was a novel and not a memoir, that it took hearing Max Porter talk about the book at Port Eliot Festival for the penny to drop. I had an odd few days afterwards trying to square it all in my head...no it was the paperback cover that I had a bit of an issue wit...

So, cameras that used roll film (as opposed to sheet film, like that used in large format cameras) generally required the user to thread the end of the roll onto a takeup spool. In an attempt to make a more user-friendly volkscamera sort of experience, Kodak launched the 126 film format in the early Sixties.Dubbed the "Instamatic", a name obviously intended to signify ease of use, the film was all spooled up in a little plastic cartridge which you could just drop into the camera and then remove...

Book: Digital Minimalism

Several friends have mentioned that I’d love Cal Newport’s writing. I finally got around to reading his most recent book, Digital Minimalism: Choosing a Focused Life in a Noisy World and my friends were correct. Newport is famous for being a millennial, computer scientist, and a book author who doesn’t have a social media account. Digital Minimalism is complementary to Jaron Lanier‘s book Ten Arguments for Deleting Your Social Media Accounts Right Now, but I found Newport a l...

Troubleshooting Books Transferred from Calibre don't show up on Kindle Voyage book list

I've got a weird problem. When I transfer books from my caliber library they never seem to show up on my Kindle voyage book list. If I plug the Kindle in to my Windows PC, the books are in directories under documents. But they never seem to show up in the book list on my Kindle, nor can I search for them and find them. The only workaround I have found so far is to manually copy the MOBI files from each book's directory into the home path of the documents directory. Then the books show up right a...

Manufactured Drama

Opinion Ft Collins, CO –-(Ammoland.com)- Persistent Gun Myths: “… an eternal ‘song-‘ waves within which reason has drowned.” ~ Friedrich Nietzsche With the aid of left-leaning Hollywood dramatists, who have scant regard for the truth, an entire generation of Americans and Western Europeans have grown-up, believing preposterous myths they’ve seen depicted on the screen more times than anyone can count!

CBS News Wants Guns for Them.. But Not for You ~ VIDEO

The crew was protected by an armed guard. This is interesting because CBS condemned ordinary citizens for being armed. The network said it is unwise for you or me to have a gun for self-defense of our family while CBS protected their camera equipment with armed guards. I love the smell of hypocrisy in ...
