migrate to new computer

I'm going to move from an older Windows 7 computer, to a new Windows 10 computer. Calibre library is on on Dropbox. - Do I need to export the database (all 2000+ books) since they will stay in the same Dropbox location?? - How do I move other preferences, plugins over. I would like to avoid re-installing all of them. I'm sure this isn't a new question. Can someone point me to some directions?? thnx,

Can't Get KSM to Start, Therefore Can't Get KoReader

I had to factory reset my device after it got unplugged abruptly. Prior to that I lived in KoReader, and never used Nickel (I'm including this in case it can simplify my installation process). I have tried just shy of 10 times to get this to work, tediously following the directions (or so I think). Last time (a few years ago) it was a breeze, so I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. This thread provides a nice overview of my process: https://ebooks.stackexchange.com/que...-kobo-aura-one I too h...

Ruger 10/22 Takedown – The Ultimate Survival Rifle?

Ruger 10/22 Takedown U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- In a previous article, we took a look at a pair of classic take-down 22 caliber rifles: the Henry AR-7 and the Marlin Papoose. In that work, I stressed the importance of a lightweight packable rifle for emergency survival use and how the time-proven AR7 and Papoose came along to fit the need. The elephant in the room was the Ruger 10/22 takedown, a rifle that has been out for several years and one that seems like a natural competitor to those othe...

Joe Biden has long been hostile to the Second Amendment

Joe Biden has long been hostile to the Second Amendment Delaware/United States – -(AmmoLand.com)- There are some questions you can easily answer. One of them is Joe Biden’s stance on the Second Amendment. Here’s the quick scoop: He’s been hostile to our rights for over four decades.

Minimalist Fireplace Design

We’re closing in the spaces in my client’s home in San Francisco, and as a new addition, I suggested we add an electric fireplace on her blank family room wall. She didn’t want to go through the hassle of adding a gas line, and since modern electric fireboxes mimic the look of a gas fireplaces, and take up just a few inches of wall space, I had her contractor frame one for her.   Traditional wood burning fireplaces or vented gas versions are often designed with a hearth or a mantel which guarant...

Silliness Life, the Universe and Everything

A Mathematician Just Solved a Deceptively Simple Puzzle That Has Boggled Minds for 64 Years. Quote: But this state of affairs should come as no surprise to fans of Douglas Adams' "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" book series, which says that the number 42 is actually the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe and everything. In Adams' books, it took a supercomputer 7.5 million years of processing time to come up with this answer.

winter bed

Whenever we get a couple days with night temperatures above freezing I open up my winter bed. It's not as full as last year since I planted late in the fall, but there are lots of greens coming along. Spinach, lettuce, bok choy, and cabbage. Some overwintered rosemary. I was impressed with my kalettes that didn't mature last year, but look good now. [Author: kathy]

Bipartisan Do-Goodership

Driving to Kinko's, or FedEx/Kinko's, or FedEx Office, or whatever they're calling themselves this week, I was listening to 1A on the local NPR station. During the first half (about the impact of flooding in the Midwest), they played a blurb pimping the second half of the show, which was going to be about the impact of legalized sports gambling.They played a sound bite from one of the show's guests, saying "If you legalize it, you might as well legalize cocaine or methamphetamine," causing me to...

‘Ghostbusters’ 35th Anniversary One-Shot Comics Kick Off with a Journey into Atlantis

This year marks the 35th anniversary of Ghostbusters. After the kind of celebration there was for the 30th anniversary, this doesn’t feel like quite as thrilling of a milestone, even though we did just get the exciting announcement of a new Ghostbusters sequel following up with the original franchise in the summer of 2020. But the folks at IDW Publishing are celebrating by keeping their outstanding Ghostbusters comic book series going strong, and this time the team is heading to one of the most...

News outlets report 54-year-old Mohamed Fathy Hussein Zayan of Alexandria, Egypt, was arraigned Monday night in Cabell County Magistrate Court on a felony charge of attempted abduction. Well done.
