Aura ONE Connect Aura to Pixel Slate?

I have an Aura ONE, which I've had trouble connecting to a powered USB port. Usually that's been fine, I can use an adapter and somehow that lets it both charge and connect. Now I have a Pixel Slate and I can't get the Aura to connect or charge. A Kindle Voyage plugged into the same port both charges and connects, so I don't think it's the port, cable, or USB-C to USB-A adapter. Is there something I'm missing to let the Aura ONE connect to the Pixel Slate?

Find Your Decluttering Style and Make It Work For You

The following is a guest post about finding your decluttering style from regular contributor, Kristin at The Gold Project. Spring is officially in the air, or it is where I live in the south. After a long and gloomy winter, some sunshine and warmer days always help my mood. And, it always puts me in the decluttering mood. Does anyone else get the decluttering bug when the weather turns nicer? It is almost like I want to feel lighter and owning less helps with that goal. You might think I...

Seriousness are you a finisher or a forsaker?

You can put people into two camps, those who finish a book that they've started and those who will put a book down if the book "doesn't work" for them. Which are you? Can things change your usual behavior? For example, if your a forsaker are you less likely to put the book down if you bought it? Or if you're a finisher can a book be so truly awful that you can't finish it?

EpubSplit plugin Freezes Calibre

I've used this plugin somewhat in the past, although possibly not with the current version of Calibre--never had a problem. Now, whenever I click the EpubSplit icon, Calibre simply freezes. I've tried it on various sized books, thinking maybe the whopper I wanted to split was the problem, but no, it just freezes. Tried re-installing the plugin also. I've waited up to half an hour, but all I can do is force quit. Tried debug mode, but the log doesn't seem to say anything relevant, except the th...

Three New Gun Control Laws Go into Effect in Pittsburgh

Red Flag Laws – Should Constitutional Rights be so easily infringed? Pittsburgh, Penn. –-(Ammoland.com)- Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto signed three new bills that restrict the use of some semi-automatic such as the AR15 within the city limits, limit magazine size, and enacts a “Red Flag Law” this past Tuesday. The city deems these laws necessary after the Tree of Life Shooting. In that shooting, a Nazi walked into a synagogue and killed eleven unarmed people. Investigators determined that the ...

The Impracticality of Hardwood Flooring

My absolute hands down favorite flooring choice for a home is real wood, even more than engineered hardwood. I love the look and feel of real wood in a home, in family rooms, bedrooms, anywhere. Real wood has the warmest look and a softness underfoot that tile and vinyl can’t really compete with. But today I’m sharing my tale of woe regarding my hardwood floors, specifically in my kitchen. My kitchen addition was eleven years ago and I at the time I chose more traditional style cabinetry. If I w...

3 Practical Reasons David Chose Jerusalem—and 1 That Trumps Them All

Thirty-three miles east of the Mediterranean Sea on a limestone plateau in the Judaean Hills rests one of the oldest cities in the world: Jerusalem. Jerusalem is mentioned 660 times in the Old Testament and 141 in the New—more if you count all its synonyms like Zion, city of God, and Salem. 1 No city has been written and sung about as much as Jerusalem. 2 Or fought over. It’s been conquered more than 40 times including by the Persians, the Romans, the Ottoman Turks, and the British Em...
