Nova Pro trying to Send Mail? (calibre companion?)

This mostly occurs when I'm in the Calibre Companion app - so that might be part of the issue, but every once in a while (when I'm wifi connected), my device pops up with a little "send e-mail" box... (It only lists onenote and onedrive... likely that's bc I don't have any e-mail programs installed...) ...Anyone know why this is or how to stop it from trying to do this? Thanks in advance!!

Friday Night Lights: Luna Optics Genesis Revelation – Thermal Laser Rangefinder

Have you used thermal optics while hunting? Know what is a pain in the behind? Ranging with thermal devices especially in the dark. The problem is laser rangefinders only work if you can see through them and unless you have a night vision one you can’t aim it. Thermal scopes and handheld devices for some […] Read More … The post Friday Night Lights: Luna Optics Genesis Revelation – Thermal Laser Rangefinder appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

Quote of the Day - Robert Heinlein Edition ca. 1984

From an interview in the WaPo from September 5, 1984, In the Strange Land Of Robert Heinlein:You can go to a cocktail party on the campus of a major university and be asked three times what sign were you born under. And we've got citizens in this culture who honest to God believe that professional athletes and actors are important people with opinions worth paying attention to!AndI'm not convinced that we're going to make it. I'll bet on the human race. I'm just not sure about the United Sta...

‘Bloomberg-aligned’ Anti-gun Group Targets 13 States to Register Young Voters

Students Demand Action, a group “aligned with” anti-gun billionaire Michael Bloomberg, is mounting a 13-state voter registration campaign. U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- CNN reported that a so-called “gun safety group aligned with former New York Mayor, and failed presidential candidate, Michael Bloomberg” is targeting 13 “battleground states” in an effort to register 100,000 young voters to help determine which party controls the White House and the U.S. Senate in January. The 13 identified states...

Zooming in the Viewer?

So, I somehow got a graphic novel in AZW3 format. Short of converting it to another format, I tried reading it in Calibre, and it's viewable... but I can't seem to zoom in or out. I know we have a font size setting, but that has no effect on the pictures in the graphic novel. Anyone found a trick on Windows to read highly visual things like this in Calibre v4's viewer? Is a better idea to export it to something, like PDF, and read it in a PDF viewer?

Looking for a way to transfer books from an Android device to a Kobo Aura 2

As I'm nearly always on the road without access to a computer, I'm looking for a way to transfer files from my phone (android) to a Kobo Aura 2. I've installed KSM and Koreader. I was hoping this would let me connect with USB-OTG, but if it's possible I can't figure out how. Any help here? I tried connecting with sftp using the ghost commander plugin(an android app), setting Koreader to no password, and having both devices connected to the same wifi network, but no luck. All I can think of n...

FN SCAR 20S, the Best DMR Rifle? – Video Review

U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)-When possible, I always like to review things for as long as possible. It gives me a better idea of how it will perform for you over the duration, and just, in general, gives me a better impression of the product. It doesn’t always work out that way, but it did in the case of the FN SCAR 20S, and I’ve been shooting this rifle on and off for just over a year. In that time, it’s had a couple of different scopes and several different suppressors. Better yet, since FN has ...

So you want to read about the end of the world? (A Book List)

The world is a little scary right now. (As a New Yorker who lives in Queens, I feel this fear acutely at this particular point in time.) If you are a reader of apocalyptic and dystopian fiction, or a lover of horror, you might be familiar with that inexplicable desire to explore that discomfort and fear through films or literature–I certainly do. Maybe it’s because you want to feel like the world we’re living in is a little less scary than the one you’re reading about. Or, maybe it’s because you...

Want More Models With Inverted Text Capability

Currently only the PW4 and the Oasis 2 and 3 have inverted text (white text & black background) capability. I want a firmware update which gives that capability to all Kindles back to the PW3 and Voyage, basically for all Kindles that can be updated to use the current 5.12.4 firmware. Only if there is a hardware limitation preventing it should all the relatively recent models not have this capability IMO.

Stumped with tag browser problem

The user manual does not quite address my specific question. I've also had no luck with searches here in the archives, or perhaps I am using incorrect keywords. (most likely I am the only dummy posting the question) If one has an existing custom column, such as "Finished" for books read, is it possible to edit the column to allow inclusion in the tag browser? I think my problem is due to the "column type" being "date" which does not offer the option of a checkbox to "show in tag browser" as oth...

Gun-Grabber Desperation Showing as More Americans Buy Firearms

Long lines are becoming the norm at gunshops across American during the pandemic. U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “Deeming gun stores essential is unfair — and unsafe,” Everytown President and longtime Bloomberg lackey John Feinblatt declared in a free ad hosted by CNN Tuesday. “Much is still unknown about COVID-19, but one thing is certain: Owning a gun does not make you any safer from it.” He’s pulling the same disingenuous crap the self-appointed media wits are springboarding off of as if it’s t...
