Battery draining quicker than usual - new kindle

So, my kindle 8th generation is less than a year old, and it's battery used to take a long time before dropping down to 20% (which is when I charge it). However, after my last charge, it has dropped quicker than usual. I'm reading for about an hour nonstop and I find it going down about 5%. I don't know if it's normal. I hadnt used my kindle for a while (however I never forgot to charge it when it reached 20%, because I was always taking care of it) and I can't remember if that was normal to hap...

Adding Languages to Basic Metadata

I'm using calibre to collect my work resources, including several Alaska Native language resources. I'd like to tag these with the corresponding languages, but I noticed Yupik and Dena'Ina are missing from the list. (Inupiaq, Tlinget, and Gwich'in are there, thank you!). It doesn't appear that I can change this list myself, nor did I find any plugins for this. Is there somewhere these choices are discussed, or can I request additions? (I'm a new calibri user and new to this forum, so I apologiz...

Yes, Virgina, There is a Deep State

From Arthur Chrenkoff:The media and the left (but I repeat myself) have spent the past three years ridiculing the concept of the “Deep State” and those who subscribe to its existence. We have been told it’s a crazy right-wing conspiracy theory to believe that some public servants, mostly in the fields of intelligence, law enforcement and diplomacy, might cooperate in informal cabals to pursue their preferred policies regardless of who is in power and to protect their fiefdoms from oversigh...

POTD: German Panzergrenadier with Heckler & Koch HK69A1

Time for another Photo Of The Day. This time we’re in Germany for some training with their soldiers. We take a closer look at a Heckler & Koch that we don’t see too often, namely the HK69A1 or the Bundeswehr designation “AG40 A1“. In German, the grenade launcher is auto-translated into a “grenade pistol“, which […] Read More … The post POTD: German Panzergrenadier with Heckler & Koch HK69A1 appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

Weekend Reading

Hello friends. We’re all on edge today, the wildfires are happening again in Northern California, and a big one is burning in my county just 30 miles north of my home. Evacuations and power shut downs are in effect. It’s a little scary but wildfire season is a thing now, so we’re all on alert, hoping for containment soon but prepared for the worst. Sad but true. Favorite links from the week… Loving the medley of gloss cabinets and matte black fixtures in this kitchen remodel. The pretty combo o...

Setting metadata from ebook files

If I explore an old library, and discover it has no tags or is missing a lot of metadata that would normally show, and it it NOT a restored library, will setting the metadata from ebook files be the same as restoring? Also, is there a way to select which ebook file is being restored? I have a lot of mixed formats in the folders and was wondering if it will always use the .epub or if it will use a specific or all? Anyway of choosing how that goes? If there is a way of setting the files in a h...

Quote of the Day - Angelo Codevilla, Part 3

From Interview with Angelo Codevilla, a two-fer - one from the interviewer, David Samuels:...there is no such thing as America anymore. In place of the America that is described in history books, where Henry Clay forged his compromises, and Walt Whitman wrote poetry, and Herman Melville contemplated the whale, and Ida Tarbell did her muckraking, and Thomas Alva Edison invented movies and the light bulb, and so forth, has arisen something new and vast and yet distinctly un-American that for lack ...

Buy from Kobo in the US?

Hello folks, I'm wondering whether it is still possible to purchase an ereader via the Kobo website from a US address, or will you automatically be sent to WalMart's site. I'd rather have a root canal than buy from WalMart.

What about webp images?

Hello! Today, making an epub (2) from collected html pages, I found that Sigil put all the webp images into the folder... - Of course, webp is a recent format (I have been told that not all servers recognize it as image, zipping it on upload), thus it hardly can been included in the epub2 standard - On the other hand, I should think that it has a 'mime type' to put it together with jpg, png, gif... and, as a matter of fact, 'preview' shows the images without trouble, although in opf they show a...

KT3 5.9.2.0.1 advice

hey all, just a request for some advice. I'm a bit of a cheapskate, I don't want to pay for sponsor offers removal if I can avoid it. I have a Kindle Basic KT3 with the firmware 5.9.2.0.1.

My New Book: ‘Guilty by Reason of Insanity’

Opinion Guilty by Reason of Insanity: Why the Democrats Must Not Win USA – -(Ammoland.com)- While Trump-haters keep obsessing over his tweets and “manners,” we are witnessing the Democrats' ongoing rejection of President Donald Trump's constitutional right to govern and the people's sovereign choice in electing him. Let's check our priorities. You may regard Trump's tweet “#StopTheCoup” as political theater, but it's not, and we need to take notice. Ever since Trump's presidential announcem...

Imperial Capital but America-First Nation

Opinion Middle East USA – -(Ammoland.com)- “Let someone else fight over this long blood-stained sand,” said President Donald Trump in an impassioned defense of his decision to cut ties to the Syrian Kurds, withdraw and end these “endless wars.” Are our troops in Syria, then, on their way home? Well, not exactly. Those leaving northern Syria went into Iraq. Other U.S. soldiers will stay in Syria to guard oil wells that we and the Kurds captured in the war with ISIS. Another 150 U.S. troops wi...
