Kindle Fire

I have a Kindle Fire HD8 which I use as my reader. I have Google Play and Moon+ Reader, and FBR reader installed, and I use those rather than the built-in Kindle reader. I transfer my books in epub. I can't use Calibre Companion on this device, or on the previous Fire 8HD that I owned. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, and since CC uses its own records, I can't combine it with cable. Cable connection via USB is really, really slow. It can take up to 5 minutes to make the connection, if...

Italics don't render in NOOK app

Docx to epub conversion... Italics don't render with 'original font option' in the NOOK app for tablets and phones, but ok with other fonts and on other devices. In calibre, I checked 'subset all fonts'. I noticed another epub of this same book that was professionally converted didn't even show the 'original font' option in this Nook app. (This paid-for service obviously knew something that I don't!)...What might i do to resolve this? Using Calibre 3.40.1

spring!!!

The first day of spring - one of my favorite days! I have 8 trays of seedlings planted so far. Some are doing very well. A tray of wild flower seeds I collected are taking their time to sprout. No problem. Sometimes these take 30 days or so.I am working on planting my tomato seeds now. A few days late now for me. I have the pots clean and set in trays.  I’ve pulled out the seed packets I'll plant. Maybe I'll have time to plant tomorrow morning.Tomorrow I'll pick my up mother at the airport marki...

The Future of the ‘Transformers’ Franchise Appears to Be Up in the Air

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen seemingly tested any faith fans had in the franchise following the satisfying 2007 live-action debut of the toy-based franchise. Since then, every sequel in the Transformers franchise has made less and less money, to the point that Transformers: The Last Knight barely made more than half of what the previous sequel, Age of Extinction, earned at the domestic box office. Sadly, that continued disappointment didn’t bode well for Bumblebee, which is currently the...

“Things As They Are”

by Paulo Coelho “Of course things don’t always happen they way we wish they would. There are moments in which we feel we are seeking something that is not meant for us, knocking on doors that don’t open, waiting for miracles that don’t manifest themselves. Fortunately that is the way things are – if everything […]

Time Song - Searching for Doggerland ~ Julia Blackburn

Really first things first, just in case this thing happens before you get to the end of this episode of the scribbles... Should Julia Blackburn knock at your door and suggest that you go for walk together, just stop whatever you are doing.... switch the iron off, plug the Dyson back in to recharge , put your book down, get your boots on and go. That's all I'm saying because I've been for a 'real' walk with Julia and you wouldn't want to miss it. We met in France ten years ago. Julia was there ...

TFB Review: Tyrant Designs T-Comp Glock 9mm Muzzle Brake

One accessory I have never played with on one of my firearms is a pistol muzzle brake. I had always wondered are they kind of for looks only or do they actually serve a valuable purpose without ever knowing the true answer. Well, Tyrant Designs recently reached out to TFB seeing as they debuted their NEW Glock T-Comp […] Read More … The post TFB Review: Tyrant Designs T-Comp Glock 9mm Muzzle Brake appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

10" ereader for note-taking and reading with micro SD

Are there any large ereaders with Wacom capability and micro SD storage? As a primary note-taking device, I'd like the assurance of a backup of any notes on the micro SD card in case something were to happen to the internal memory or device. Anything available or coming?

Three for Three or Four

This year’s self-imposed-sock-club continues to be a big fat win.  I finished January’s on time, as unlikely as that seemed, and then February’s were done before February was too. (Though I didn’t manage either time to post about them within the right month, so I’m giving myself two extra points for this one.) March’s socks have slid along rather quietly under the radar. I didn’t post about them because they were Ken’s Birthday socks – though I’ve only just finished them now. (Two points deducte...

How is this possible?

I wrote a script to sync metadata from Calibre to KyBook3, which works well. I decided it should really be a plugin and downloaded the interface plugin demo and got it working as a plugin. Went to open Calibre the next day and the plugin refused to load (although calibre-debug -g says it has). Thinking I must have changed something, I commented out code until I got it working again and started putting the code back in bit by bit. But it kept loading and working until all the code was back in. (...

I got a new Kindle!

After many, many years I now have a new Kindle. :D I was gifted a Paperwhite 10th generation for my 19th wedding anniversary.

First Impressions: Lighting is seriously improved compared to my PW1, Contrast is much improved. Which is very important to me. I love the bezel design. The flush screen is wonderful.
