Boox Max Carta Navigation > More Settings bug?

I got a used Boox Max Carta. I read a lot of two column PDFs. In the max carta, when I use Navigation > More Settings and choose any options, none of them work. It doesn't zoom out to the right regions. Is this a known bug? Is there a way around this? I couldn't find any reference on this forum. This is using Neo Reader v2.0. If I use Onyx Neo Reader, the app just crashes. Zoom, crop etc all work but the navigating columns is important. I can post video if that would be helpful.

POTD: Janson EM-2 – Experimental British assault rifle

Today’s Picture Of The Day is the British “EM-2“, in the rain. It is also known under the names as the “Janson rifle (EM2)” or the “Rifle No.9 Mk1”, and almost looks like it has a pump action. The EM-2 was an experimental rifle, briefly adopted by British forces in 1951. Due to NATO standardization […] Read More … The post POTD: Janson EM-2 – Experimental British assault rifle appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

Recently I scored a Canon EOS Elan II body from KEH for, like, $29 during one or another of their recent sales. This was Canon's "prosumer" film body from '95 until it was superseded by the Elan 7 in last half of 2000. Since they still sell Fujicolor 400 at the local Meijer, as well as CVS & Wallgreens, that's what I use for testing cameras for light-tightness.I just got the photos back from Roberts yesterday. I'd say the camera still works great! [Author: Tam]

Problems with Cloud Collection synching

I’m discovering some issues. Seems like server issue to me, as it is affecting every device linked to my account. Collections added or removed with the iOS app have no effect on other devices registered to my account, including another iOS device. I discovered this when I deleted my ‘To Read’ and ‘Previously Read’ collections on my iPhone (now that this is more elegantly handled by the ability to tag books as ‘Read’). These were by far the largest I was using, and they had become painfully slow...

Dropbox limits free accounts to 3 devices

I just got a notice from Dropbox that they're now, as of March, limiting us to only 3 devices. I read on a lot of devices and keep ebooks there and I use it to sync between devices with Moon+. They've just made Dropbox useless to me. I checked and it seems that I have 53 devices registered on Dropbox. They aren't removing devices but till I get it down below 3 I can't add any more. I don't own 53 devices and most of the ones I do own don't have Dropbox installed, so I'm guessing they're cou...

Tandoori Tofu Skewers

This is a great midweek meal, full of the good stuff, really fresh, a little bit spicy and got loads of colour. You can add whatever sides you like, served mine on a chapatti that I girdled, so it was a sort of Indian taco/burrito. But you could have naan for a treat and change the grain to quinoa or pilau rice. Avocado is also nice served with it. [Author: natalie p.]

On Gun Violence, Real Solutions Require Courage & Leadership ~ VIDEO

Opinion By Steve Sanetti Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence struck out at the firearms industry to push an agenda of half-truths, omissions of fact and obfuscation. Connecticut, USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Gun control groups praising Connecticut’s Supreme Court decision to allow the Soto v. Bushmaster case to move forward are, ironically, using the court decision as an opportunity to perpetuate false narratives, the same misdeeds of which they accuse the firearms industry.

How Much Is Heath Care Really Worth? Patients, Not Bureaucrats, Should Decide

Opinion How Much Is Heath Care Really Worth? Patients, Not Bureaucrats, Should Decide. USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- When I met with several Republican senators this week, it was clear that they recognize Americans’ desire to have practical solutions for the cost of health care. The combination of pressure from constituents and a direct challenge from President Trump is focusing their attention on immediate reforms which could be enacted – even with a Democratic House. Republicans also realize thei...

Weekend Cooking: Pescan by Abbie Cornish and Jacqueline King

When best friends Abbie Cornish and Jacqueline King Schiller started cooking together, they weren't thinking about sharing their recipes with the world. After friends began asking them for tips on how to cook more nutritious foods, however, they got the idea of putting together a cookbook. More than two years later, we can thank Cornish and Schiller for Pescan (Abrams, March 26), a book that fits the diets of many modern-day cooks. Their recipes rely mostly on plants and are completely dairy fr...
