popular magazines: a unique id and a means to get that data? ISSN is no help.

I have a lot of periodicals (about 400, largely popular magazines) that I have downloaded as "packs": say, Family Handyman, 2016-2018. Typically, these items don't have issue number or month/date of publication appended in the metadata. I was surprised to learn that ISSNs are not unique identifiers of issues, but rather just of a given series--they don't correspond to an issue, with date/volume number, but rather just the title as a whole. What makes them even less useful for my purposes is tha...

language settings on cloud reader

Hello everyone and thank you in advance. I've just reached this forum after venturing myself into the true black hole which is Amazon 'help'. Anyway, I am living in Brazil, and I've been plagued by some unbelievable issue whenever I want to read a kindle edition on their Cloud. I am using a Samsung Chromebook, all set to English as its default language, but his holiness the Kindle Cloud Reader will always turn to Brazilian Portuguese, it doesn't matter what I do. There is absolutely no way to ch...

The two drops of oil

(Standing above the little town of Tarifa is an old fort built by the Moors. I remember sitting here with my wife, Christina, in 1982, and for the first time looking at a continent from across a narrow stretch of water: Africa. At that time I could not dream that such a lazy moment in […]

Thoughts from Team Underland...

I thought we'd stay with Underland for a while longer, especially as Robert Macfarlane is reading it for Book of the Week on Radio 4 at the moment. I made contact with Team Underland, the small group who helped me through those years of doing Port Eliot Festival, and who have all been reading the book. We keep in touch and meet up several times a year and many of you might remember the Knit Angel. Liz made all those wonderful 'knitsuke' that we gave to all the authors who came to the dovegreyre...

Rifle Training at the SIG SAUER Academy – Rifle Fundamentals

Rifle Training at the SIG SAUER Academy – Rifle Fundamentals U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- Walking down range after volleys of fire from various semi-automatic rifles. Laying pieces of tape over bullet holes and turning around to do it over and over again. Spending an entire day like that, to me, is the definition of a day well spent. While going to the range for the day can mean a lot of things there should be a general consensus that you want to leave a better shooter than when you walked in. No...

NRA Show & Conference, 2019, Indianopolis, IN – After Action Report

Opinion S&W Performance Center Optics-Equipped M&P Shield M2.0 Pistol Ft Collins, CO –-(Ammoland.com)- This year’s Annual NRA Conference was fraught with controversy, as we all know now. I didn’t know about any of the high-level wranglings until I arrived, and I still don’t know much. I’ve never met any of those up the food-chain at NRA, and I only hope things at the top level will settle-down quickly. Political leftists hate our guts, but they’re still afraid of us.

Download of Comments Metadata format

I'm wondering if anyone else has seen this behavior when downloading metadata into the comments (book descriptions) field. I've noticed this change when I upgraded somewhere between version 3.40.1 & 3.41.3 (I don't think I downloaded 3.41.0,.1 or .2). In the metadata download configuration I have 'convert comments to plain text' turned ON. When the comments are loaded into Calibre from the update metadata screen the comments that are updated are truncated half way thru the comments box (a is s...

Ereader that lets you read book synopsis/info (like a back cover)?

I have an old kindle at the moment and it just shows a list of books I have and the only info I can see is Title, Author, rough length (via those dots) and percentage read. One thing I miss about physical books is picking one off the bookshelf and reading the back cover so I know what it's about and what genre. My solution at the moment is to add a 'book jacket' page using Calibre, but to view it requires opening the book file on my Kindle and then it says 1% read which I don't like (and also I ...

Maybe it’s the tail

I like to think of myself as some sort of higher-order knitter.  I know, as I type it, that this is quite vain. I can feel that – the little tingle in the back of my mind urging humility and saying “Oh, well now, don’t you think you’re all that and a bag of chips.” Understandably, that voice sounds exactly like my mother, though I don’t think she ever said that to me, I’ve just posthumously assigned her the role of judge and jury. Like I said, I know that it’s vanity, but as a woman who is perfe...

Gun Control… and Three Impossible Things Before Breakfast

I shook my head because their foolishness was so strong. This is the time when legislators need commons sense.. even if we have to give it to them good and hard. Their arguments sound like this: We should protect our students with plastic no-guns signs since you can’t prove that a teacher won’t go crazy and shoot people. Any gun at school ...
