Humor Macdonell, A G: Autobiography of a Cad (1938), v1 5 March 2019

Outrageously funny novel by A G Macdonell, author of "England, Their Engand"; a literary ancestor of the Flashman stories. Edward Percival Fox-Ingleby (b 1889) traces his rise in wealth and prominence from early days at Eton and Oxford, shameless toadying, war profiteering, and money-making schemes such as building a bungalow housing development on an area of outstanding natural beauty, to devious manipulation of markets and even his own wife and child. The tale ends specifically in 1926, and ...

You're doing it wrong.

Some dude up the road in Marion was walking about with an unholstered pistol stuffed down the front of his trousers. He says he felt the gun starting to slip down into his pants and grabbed to catch it, causing it to discharge... right into his junk.Dude didn't have a toter's permit, either, so there's every chance he's getting charged for it, too.And to rub extra bonus salt into the wound, if you will, dude has made news as far away as Sacramento and DC.To the surprise of absolutely nobody, it ...

Changing my mind, at least a little...

Initially when I stuck my toe back into the film photography world, I was pretty down on late-model Canon EOS cameras with auto everything. I wanted knobs and dials and the full retro experience.I've since softened on that, at least to an extent. At least for the higher-end stuff. Having used the digital full-frame EOS 1Ds Mark II and fallen in love with it, I'm looking at the EOS 1N in a new light. It helps that I've got a few good EF-mount lenses to go with it.Hopefully once the weather turn...

POTD: ”You can feel it in your body”

In Today’s Photo we’re looking at the various flashes the M/86 recoil-less rifle produces as it’s being fired by Swedish soldiers. The weapon is exported under the name AT4 (eighty-four), which also can be read as the caliber “84 mm” or “Anti-Tank”, which is one of many uses. According to Wikipedia, an AT4 CS (AT4 […] Read More … The post POTD: ”You can feel it in your body” appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

Ereader Comparison Chart Help

I'm putting together a massive google spreadsheet to make it easy to compare and find info on current e-readers. Since it's a google sheet you should be able to sort it to find what you're looking for. So what spec categories are missing that should be added?

Aura Lots of ghosting text after only 10 page turns

Hi, i get excessive ghosting after only 10 page turns. I have my kobo aura set to refresh the whole page after only 4 turns, but i've seen some posts of people going all the way up to 99 page turns without problems. Could this be a faulty screen? or maybe i'm missing some specific config parameter to achieve those 99 page turn (i'm happy with less than that hehehe) I'm attaching some sample pictures i took of my reader after 1 and 10 page turns, for comparison.

Swalwell Smear of NRA is a Sign of Things to Come

Anti-gun Congressman Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) California – -(AmmoLand.com)- Last week, Representative Eric Swalwell, who has in the past proposed an Australia-style “buyback” of certain firearms and who threatened to nuke gun owners who wouldn’t turn in their guns, claimed on Twitter that the NRA threatened Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Well, that was a lie and one that was quickly shot down in the wake of his tweet. But Swalwell’s doubled down on his smears and lies, claiming the NRA is taking Russi...

Sphinx SDP Compact Alpha Pistol – Review

If you are looking for something unique, the Sphinx SDP Compact might be the gun for you. Be warned though, this pistol is one of the most regrettable guns buys I have ever made. U.S.A. – If you are either a gun nerd or a gun hipster, there is a solid chance that you have heard of the Sphinx SDP Compact. If you haven't, the pistol has been around a lot longer than you might realize with a US market release back in 2013 for the standard SDP Compact with the SDP Compact Alpha like the one here ...

The Low-Recoil Space-Age MARS Rifle

I learned about the MARS rifle right before the SHOT Show 2019. The video demonstration of this rifle on the company’s website showed that while being chambered in .308 Winchester, the rifle virtually has no recoil. Needless to say that I was curious to find the MARS Inc. at the show and see if the […] Read More … The post The Low-Recoil Space-Age MARS Rifle appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

Converting Footnotes by Section

Hello, I am looking for a way to convert footnotes by section in a word document using Calibre. Basically, my Microsoft Word document has footnotes by section. That means footnote numbering begins at one after each section break. However, when I convert using Calibre, footnote numbering is continuous throughout the document. I considered using separate documents for each section, however, my sections do not begin with heading 1. Thanks.

Apollo 11 IMAX movie, brief review.

The newly found film clips, including the restored 70mm film footage of the first moon landing make a great documentary. Crystal clear footage of parts of the event, from start to finish Sure, all of us know the story. But this is stuff you've not seen before. We've all seen the grainy videos, the yellowed, washed out and degraded 8mm and 16mm film footage. This is not the same old stuff. And not from the same angles either. This is 70mm film footage, carefully restored, in sharp detail. From ...

Native Turf Grasses

I’m starting this post with a picture I’ve previously published in this blog.  At the risk of seeming repetitive, I want to explain why it speaks to me so strongly The most contradictory aspect of the contemporary lawn is its fussy, problematic nature.  The modern American lawn cannot seem to survive without huge and continual inputs of chemicals, fertilizers, and labor. Indeed, gardeners have come to accept as gospel that turfgrass is inherently needy, an impractical fashion foisted on us Amer...

And I have my Authors showing up First Name Last Name.. That's all fine.. What I can't figure out is how to have it output the SERIES name the same as the ti...

Good Idea to Get Kindle Oasis 2?

I'm VERY eager to get a Kindle Oasis 2 but worried about the battery. Considering that it's been more than a year since it was released, should I hold on to my 25% trade-in discount until May 31, 2019 (the expiration of the discount) for a new Oasis with better battery or is the KO 2's battery not as bad as people say it is?
