Old kindle - can't reset to factory settings?

Hi everyone - this is my first post. :) I apologize if this has been asked before. I have an old kindle (running version 4.1.3) - I took it on a trip and since I've taken it off airplane mode it will no longer connect to wifi. I tried all the google stuff, I've done a soft reset a few times but it doesn't work, so I (took a deep breath) and tried to reset to factory settings. I understand how to do it, and I'm clicking the right things ... settings then menu then Reset to factory defaults, and I...

Just curious--fingerprints

I was reading a review, or a comparison of the new basic Kindle and the Paperwhite 4, and read, "Unlike the Paperwhite, the basic Kindle’s display does not sit flush with the surface. Depending on who you ask, this could be a real advantage. Yes, dust and lint does get caught in the corners, but this is less aggravating than having to constantly wipe fingerprints off the plastic display as on the Paperwhite." I have seen this complaint about constantly needing to wipe fingers off the screen of ...

Aretha Franklin's Amazing Grace

You'll be forgiven for not having heard of the film "Amazing Grace." After all, it was shot 47 years ago and until recently never available due to a combination of technical difficulties and legal issues. However, it is now available and showing in theaters and definitely worth seeing.  The film was originally shot in 16mm by Sydney Pollack at the behest of Warner Brothers. The occasion was to be a live recording of the Queen of Soul's return to her gospel roots at the New Temple Missio...

POTD: Aerial Door gunner in Übung Heli Dust – FN M3M (GAU-21)

This is one of the best pictures I’ve seen in a while, perfect for TFB’s Photo Of The Day. In 2017 we did a similar one, the Aerial Door Gunning with .50 BMG. Übung means exercise in German, and the picture is from “Heli Dust”. The picture is taken out of a Sikorsky transport helicopter CH-53 […] Read More … The post POTD: Aerial Door gunner in Übung Heli Dust – FN M3M (GAU-21) appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

Poor Reasoning

By this logic, I can throw out my smoke detectors and fire extinguishers, yank the seatbelts and airbags out of my car, and cancel all my insurance policies.

Here’s Why I Think A Revolver In 10mm Is A Great Idea (Return Of The S&W 610)

The 610 is back! I’m a huge fan of The Centimeter and I also have a soft spot for Smith & Wesson revolvers. So I was excited when I found out that Smith & Wesson was bringing back the 610. The Model 610 is an N frame revolver chambered in 10mm Auto but it can […] Read More … The post Here’s Why I Think A Revolver In 10mm Is A Great Idea (Return Of The S&W 610) appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

32bit vs 64 bit

So I have upgraded to a newer faster cooler computer. Win7 to Win 10. Files moved across, Calibre seems to work fine. I installed Calibre 32 bit on the new system, mostly to match what was on the old system and to have one less variable in the move. Now the question is should I download the 64bit and install (presumably over the 32bit) Are the advantages important enough to go through the effort?? thnx, .

If you might add these two it would be great Babylon English-Turkish dictionary: https://www.babylon-software.co...

Server Error In Firefox

When I open a tab to the calibre server in Firefox, I get the error message "TypeError: can't redefine non-configurable property "userAgent" Error at http://127.0.0.1:8080/:1:321 Traceback (most recent call last):" It keeps popping up intermittently when I x it out. It's very annoying. How do I get rid of it? This just started happening after upgrading to calibre 3.41.2 64 bit.

Schadenfreude is a tasty dish indeed, lol. These people live in a pretend world of their own creation— and they acknowledge nothing beyond its borders.

Glo Device died after running out of battery

Hi, I have a Kobo Glo, which was working perfectly until a few weeks ago. I was using it, noticed that the battery was running low, but kept using it, until it shut off. Then I recharged it (many many times since that happened), but it never worked again. I'm able to turn on the light (so battery is still working), but nothing shows in the screen. I can see something very faded there, but I can't even identify what's written. I tried soft reset, hard reset, ran fsck on all its partitions, spo...

Sell Two (2) Likebook Mars - Sell/Trade.

I've got two Likebook Mars devices we opened on Christmas. One is mine, most current firmware. The other belongs to my wife, 1.05 firmware.
