Recommending Only Striker-Fired Pistols?

Personal Defense Network: Striker-fired semi-automatics were made popular in the 1980s by Glock. Although the company was not well received in the beginning, it has become one of the most popular defensive pistol brands in the world. The striker firing mechanism uses a spring-loaded firing pin that works more like the launcher in a pinball machine than that of a traditional pistol with a hammer. This spring-loaded pin is partially cocked by the movement of the slide. The trigger then cocks the p...

Is there a Kindle equivalent of the "KoboUtilities" plugin?

Specifically the automated backup/restore of reading position functionality is a big deal to me. Would be great to be able to import all my books from my H2O with read status/position intact, since my H2O has died today and looking into other options for a replacement

Branowelery Update

So sorry (not sorry) to go on about it but a quick Bank Holiday Branwolery update for you. People stop me in town now (waving to Rebecca) and ask 'How are the Wols?' and Rebecca and I had a quick catch-up outside the Edinburgh Woollen Mill on Saturday. As I said it's all quite nerve-wracking in a way. Like having children because you worry about them... Might something happen to one or other of them... Might Mr just not appear one night...or the next night... Might we actually be staring at ...

Gin Bottle Lamp

My mum gave me this lovely gin bottle, we've just moved house and decorated our front room in a lovely teal colour and the bottle went perfectly so I decided to turn it into a lamp. I used a lamp fixing from ebay (it just bushes into the neck of the bottle) and I made the lampshade with some fabric I bought ages ago and a lampshade making kit. [Author: Helen W.]

Unwanted spaces between letters of a word

When converting pdf files through Calibre it sometimes happens that some words receive unwanted spaces between the letters of the words. For instance, the word Although becomes A l t h o u g h in the conversion. In some books that I converted thousands of words become messed-up like this, making it futile to try to correct the errors. :angry: Is it possible to prevent Calibre from wrecking words this way? :bulb2: Most probably the problem originates from the fact that in the original pdf file t...

Kamala Harris & the News Media Don’t Know What They Don’t Know

Opinion Kamala Harris Fairfax, VA – -(Ammoland.com)- By now gun owners have become accustomed to a certain measure of ignorance from anti-gun politicians and their lapdogs in the mainstream press on matters of firearms policy. It’s the flamboyant stridency of that ignorance that remains shocking. Last week, the presidential campaign of Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) announced that if elected president the candidate would ban the importation of AR-15-style “assault weapons.” Characterizing the...

Gun Control, Projection, And Poor Impulse Control

Opinion Gun Control, Projection, And Poor Impulse Control Montana – -(AmmoLand.com)- I am asked why some people fear and hate guns – why others think we shouldn't be allowed to have firearms. One answer has to do with poor impulse control and the psychological phenomenon of projection. We know some people have poor impulse control. They have potent urges to fly off the handle with minimum provocation – perhaps are offended by the smallest thing. They know themselves and also see that they sh...

I've been using Calibre since an early version of Calibre v2 on a dedicated iMac. I share my library on the web with a few family members on v2 I did not have user accounts.
