Going Gothic in Tavistock

I do the best I can to support our town library. This support can range from a rummage through the online catalogue and a stack of reservations, to popping in each week and borrowing books off the shelves. I'll often test out a book with a library copy before I buy these days too, as well as taking in any spare books of my own for their stock. And then there are the computers and Local Reference section, both of which have been invaluable as I have explored the history of our little corner of th...

iPad Goodbye, Iowan...

Wow, I really loved that font in Apple Books, since it included true small caps and was really easy to read as well, but today I opened up a book and it was GONE. I didn't even see any update for Apple Books, it was just a here today, gone tomorrow deal. I will miss it. Was fun to see proper small caps in books. Wish I could find a copy for my Kobo.

Removing previous Find/Replace choices

I have in the book editor a lot of previous used choices for find/replace. Most of them are book specific and I would like to clean out that drop down menu.

Centering Chapter Headings

I don't like seeing "Chapter One" (or whatever chapter heading there is) along the left side of the page. Short of going into the book and manually centering it, is there some automatic way to set it? This generally applies to books that I have edited that were originally in paper format. I default keep the original page style, but sometimes I set it to left orientation. I like the ragged edges and the natural spacing between words. However I do not like seeing the chapter headings on the l...

Kindle PW1, 3G, 5.4.4.2, Jailbreak and update?

Hi everyone, I've got a Kindle PW1 with 3G running 5.4.4.2. I hadn't used it in a long time, so I guess with 5.4.4.2 the 3G service doesn't work anymore. I recently conducted the 1.14.N jailbreak to use KOReader, and am now wondering how/if I can get 3G working again. Do I need to update firmware? If so, how do I do that and keep the JB? Thanks!

Garden Lady Dog

You can tell she is a gardener because she has a gardening hat and a basket ;-) And her linen jacket with big pockets. The tiny buttons going up the front of her shirt are only for show. The shirt closes with snaps. Not much gardening to be done around here yet.
