The Magicians' Showrunners Explain That 'Deliberate,' and Very Permanent, Finale Decision

Did my office suddenly fill up with onions, or am I still bawling my eyes out? The season finale of The Magicians pulled one of its biggest, and most shocking, surprises to date. You might think (or hope) it’ll lead to another epic quest, like the one to bring back magic in season three. But according to the…Read more...

PW3 "Destroying Packages" on PW3 firmware 5.10.3

I was caught by a OTA update, totally forgot to block them. Sometimes, screensaver and KUAL randomly stop working, so I could just reinstall its .bin files copying them to mrpackages folder and hitting a ;log mrpi. On 5.10.3, I'm getting "Destroying Packages" everytime I try to reinstall them. So, what are my options? can I downgrade to a previous version? Is there other way to have KUAL and screensaver working?

Clara HD Clara or Glo, replacing the internal SD card, which is best

I've read repeatedly about replacing the internal card on a Glo or Clara. I'm thinking of trying it. I do remember reading that most class 10 cards are optimized for large block storage, but small block storage is more important in an ereader. What specific 32/64GB card would you recommend? Amazon US links are appreciated. (I am well aware that I shouldn't buy from Marketplace sellers for SD cards). My Clara is quite a bit speedier than my Aura. I'm not worried about a speed boost. I just don't ...

Mini Network Error

Hello everyone. I'm new to this forum. I own a Kobo Mini, and I have accidentally bricked it while trying to manually downgrade it a few weeks ago. I have solved it by following Kiwisaurus' Guide on "How to Fix Bricked / Boot Loop Kobo eReader". (https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=311227.) The last method fixed the problem (Micro SD card firmware fix), and thankfully I didn't need a new image or anything like that. But now I have a different problem. So I did a factory reset, an...

Review: Can You Use Birchwood Casey Super Blue to Refinish an AK?

Some time ago, I had a chance to use Birchwood Casey Super Blue to refinish a large amount of AKs (over a hundred, to be more precise). When I was looking for an effective bluing solution, I found a surprisingly little amount of actual reviews featuring different types of cold blue. So if you’re considering using cold […] Read More … The post Review: Can You Use Birchwood Casey Super Blue to Refinish an AK? appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

AIReader: how do I load a book into library?

I have an azw3 book on my computer. I would like that book on my android phone (Samsung Galaxy 5). I know how to move files from the PC to the phone. But is that how I do it? Just copy the file somewhere? If so, where? Does it matter? Or do somehow load the book from inside the app. I find it extremely frustrating that there seems to be no instructions on how to do this most basic function.

So, it had been a while since I'd shot a timed FAST in a class environment. Way back in late 2015, as a matter of fact, in a Langdon class, I shot a 7.62 raw time with the M&P I was carrying at the time. A dropped shot on the 3x5 card made it a 9.62, which still squeaked into "Intermediate". Since then, I had switched to the Glock 19 for carry and gotten to the point where I was pretty comfortable turning in clean mid-to-high sevens, at least by myself or with a friend or two on the range, but ...

Tulips For A Cause

  Botanically speaking, I suppose most horticulturists don’t do much with tulips in their home gardens. Despite a history rife in treacherous explorations which brought a plant from the dry eastern Mediterranean to low-country Holland, most horticulturists are on to other things. They dismiss the anthropologically fascinating story of markets, economies, and logistics. Many are likely ignorant of the sordid tales of obsession that prompted good, stout, Calvinist Dutch to try one or more of seve...

Blond Girl with Bows

I got sick. Such bad timing because I had a million things on my list that I wanted to get finished before I leave for Washington DC next Monday.

This little girl got finished and photographed. Twice actually… I mean I thought I was finished, took photos and then decided I was not happy. I worked on her face, gave her new hair, and...

PW2 Replace japanese PW2 screen on a french-bought PW2?

Hello, I have a PW2 wifi (905A), bought in Japan in 2014. It wasn't jail-broken. Last month, it suddenly showed something like "update failed". After, it has never re-booted. I decided to make serial port, with success, but diagnose leads to: the eMMC is dead. I could have a PW2 bought in France with broken screen. The guy doesn't know exact model, but says it's a 6th gen. So my question about compatibility: could I replace my screen (PW2 905A) on a PW2 2013 motherboard bought in France? ...
