QotD: Civilization Edition

Civilization is not inherited; it has to be learned and earned by each generation anew; if the transmission should be interrupted for one century, civilization would die, and we should be savages again.  —  Will and Ariel Durant I don't think it takes a century. Just a couple of generations. [Author: [email protected] (Kevin)]

Troubleshooting Kindles bricking in Papua New Guinea

I've got an interesting issue for you all to ponder - 3G / LTE kindles seem to be bricking themselves when taken to Papua New Guinea. My mother in law lives in Port Moresby, is an avid reader and uses her kindles heavily - particularly because getting paper books locally can be a pain. A bit of history: Original kindle is a 3G keyboard - still works but obviously isn't as nice to use as newer ones. This one was sourced from the USA before they are available in Australia. Next kindle was a PW3 3...

PDF Manual link?

I've just upgraded to Calibre 3.40.1. The link to the PDF manual on this page ist kaput. Has the PDF manual been discontinued, or is the link only temporarily broken? Thanks.
