Wired Swirl Statement Necklace

How’s this for making a statement?! We love this wrapped swirl design – it is so striking, yet surprisingly so simple to make. We’ve used lovely natural Lapis Lazuli beads, Pyrite beads and crystals. However you can do any colour combination you like! We found that using two contrasting colour groups looks good, but you could even do a completely random rainbow coloured design if you liked! The main thing is we graduate the beads, so you will need beads including 4mm, 6mm and 8mm. [Author: Miche...

I have been using Calibre for years ? now, but since the update previous to the current one, I have been unable to transfer converted books to my Samsung Galaxy Tab. I need to in through File Explorer find the converted book and copy it across. Any ideas. (Device is not being ignored - any more) This also seems to have happened since the update. Cheers

This Week Only: Both Garden Work Areas Tidy!

I am so pleased to get both of these chores done–in the same week, no less–that I just had to share it with you. All done! I didn’t take a “before” picture. My first project was the seed-starting area. This is a corner of the basement outfitted with discarded kitchen cabinets and a homemade seed starting stand. And it’s not just for starting seeds; it’s also the houseplant tending station. In the bottom right corner you can see just a bit of our newspaper stockpile. The ki...

Best Metadata Looker-Upper?

I was hoping to find a way to automatically add more robust meta data than what comes out of the box with Calibre. Specifically with categories of tags. Be great if I could search for keywords involving settings, types of characters and the like. Sometimes this comes through with the default, and sometimes it doesn't. Any suggestions?

Add to favorites Moon+ Reader pro

Hello, I just got a new Kindle for my grandkids. I imported the Boxcar Children (135) books and I want to put them in "My favorites".

I'm a little lost here. Thanks :help:

KOReader: reassign buttons on Libra H2O

Hello! I'm sorry if this came up before - I used the search function, but to no avail. I've been using KOReader on Libra H2O, and it's been great! But I'd like to ask something - is there a way to reassign the physical buttons on Libra to always flip to the next page no matter what? I know you can invert their functions, so that the top button turns the page forward, while the bottom one returns to the previous page, but I want both of them to go forward at the same time, no matter the rotation...

Gun Law Reform in Bolosnaro’s Brazil, Homicides Drop Precipitously

Gun Law Reform in Bolosnaro's Brazil, Homicides Drop Precipitously In December, 2018, in an article published by the Wall Street Journal, this pronouncement was made. From the wsj.com: Now, Brazil is set to embark on an experiment that will determine what happens when you loosen gun restrictions in a country battling an overpowering wave of gun crime. Homicides in Brazil were at historic highs in 2017. They dropped a bit in 2018, as candidate Bolsonaro ran on reform of the gun laws to allow s...

Kindle USA market share

I ran across this on the Wikipedia Kobo entry. The latest info I have seen. "As of August 2018, Amazon's Kindle e-reader had an 83.6% share of the U.S. e-reader market while Kobo had a 13.4% share. Data was not yet available as to how the Walmart deal had begun to affect market share.[40] In June 2019, the Walmart website listed four Kobo models, the Clara, Aura H2O, the conventional Aura and the 8-inch Forma model." This leaves a whole 3% for B&N Nook and all other current Ebook readers in t...

iLiad iRex iLiad for sale

I am selling my iRex iLiad. It is in excellent condition, powers on and works correctly. It has the original power adapter and a aftermarket soft zippered case. I replaced the battery about 4-5 years ago with a higher capacity one, although I do not remember the specs of the new battery. I'm mainly looking to get rid of it and put it in the hands of somebody who has a use for it. I am located in central Iowa, but can ship anywhere, with appropriate reimbursement for shipping costs. I am as...

Custom Screen Saver?

Hi there: I've seen some posts on this, but can't find what might work for me. I have a Kobo Libra H2O. This is exceedingly geeky, but I thought it would be cool to design a bookplate to show when my kobo is asleep. Basically, I just want it to show an image of my choosing when the reader is asleep. Somewhere I saw that this could be done by adding a folder to the root of the kobo device called "screensaver" and adding an image. This didn't work for me, the image just came in as a book. Any s...

Touch Android Folder on my NOOK Glowlight 3

I tried to search for something about this, but, didn't find anything. I have a NOOK Glowlight 3 (not rooted) and all of a sudden I noticed that there is a new folder in the root directory called "Android". There are .png files as thumbnails in there.. why is this folder on my Nook? It didn't seem to need it before. Is it something that Calibre loaded maybe? I did not explicitly create this folder and just want to know why it is there now and if I can delete it. Thanks!

1st generation kindle 3G working again?

I bought a first generation kindle on eBay out of nostalgia and a few weeks later the 3G stopped working. It worked fine on my DX but the explanation at the time was Sprint pulled the plug on the old 3G system and as the DX was connecting elsewhere that still worked. No biggie, but today it’s working again. Not sure if it has something to do with trying to make as much connectivity available during the pandemic or if it was a screwup initially. Anyone have info?
