App Icons for Boox Devices

Hello all, I've owned several e-readers over the past 10 years or so, but just got my hands on a Boox Note Pro, and I'm pretty happy with it so far. I'm a little OCD (figuratively), and couldn't stand that the icons downloaded via the Google Play Store didn't have nice, high-contrast icons like the apps that come pre-loaded on the device. I looked around a little bit and couldn't find what I was looking for, so I ended up making some of my own. It's fairly simple to create them, and all you hav...

Regular Books No Longer Listed after Import

I was trying to add a reference list of book titles (600) to my already robust library of 5000+ ebooks using CSV import. The new titles were just a reference list of books NOT in Calibre-accessible ebook format. But I wanted the titles included so I could sort by author, series, etc. and see what I owned. However, now my library only showss the 600 new titles. For the old books - those truly imported completely into Calibre, the folder structure still exists where all the files are stored. ...

The Artificial Silk Girl ~ Irmgard Keun

At last someone (Penguin) is bringing The Artificial Silk Girl (Das kunstseiden Mädchen) by Irmgard Keun back into print, and I for one couldn't be more delighted. I'm sure I have suggested it hither and yon, especially to publishers of 'forgotten women's fiction', all to no avail down the years. I first read the book in 2006 having acquired this exquisite hardback edition and wrote this about it... .'...but here at last is Irmgard Keun's The Artificial Silk Girl, she who lived for some time...

project gutenberg us formating style/method

Whenever I look at the html of an epub I've downloaded from the US Project Gutenberg I'm always rolling my eyes. Epubs from other free book sites aren't anywhere nearly as contorted and antediluvian. Even recent books are full of weird stuff (to me). Anyhow, I was wondering if anyone knows why they do what they do.

Creating a Post SHTF movie library

I'd like some input on creating a post SHTF movie library. I have hundreds of digital books and music stored in a faraday along with inverters and solar panels. I thought it might be nice to store digital movies as well. Anybody doing this and whats the least expensive route to create this media library. Pretty much any scenario I run through my brain says we will be without power unless it is a slow economic collapse like Venezuela. So should maybe be a laptop that can be charged with solar...

Fight Gun Control With Our Own Emotional Stories

Opinion Fight Gun Control With Our Own Emotional Stories United States – -(AmmoLand.com)- When we discussed the “civil society” gambit to ban modern multi-purpose semi-automatic firearms, we noted that it was being used to set up a one-two combination to get people to not look at the facts surrounding these firearms. The first part of that combination was massive amounts of emotional manipulation. For instance, Kamala Harris used the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting as pa...

When converting epub to mobi, line spacing condenses

Hi, everyone. When I convert from epub to mobi, line spacing decreases so much. The last time I converted was about a couple of years ago and it worked fine at that time. I'm using the latest version of calibre. Tried increasing minimum line height and line height, didn't work at all. Tried on other epub files, same result. If I convert epub to azw3, it works fine. I've attached screenshots of calibre viewer showing the original epub file and the converted mobi file respectively. You can clea...

Managing tags

Is there a way to export the manage tags to a csv file after "managing" them? A csv file that could indicate the tag, then the changes, and whether or not it has been deleted? This would be very helpful in importing to Calibre Spy or other libraries.

“Fatty” Fiberglass Prop Replica (Caveman 1981)

Tomenosuke has teamed up High Bros. Production to release this prop replica model of the dinosaur - named Fatty - from the 1981 film Caveman (starring Ringo Starr - and where he met his wife Barbara Bach). Similar to the Blade Runner blaster, Shinji and Tomenosuke had trouble trying to track down the license holder.
