From a discussion elsewhere...

In answer to the question "Why is the world so goofy?" made in response to one or another of the thousands of weird little fandoms and social groups that dot the digital savanna:"It's always been goofy, it's just that the internet...and specifically social media...lets you see the wackiness and the stupidity in the head of the average person.Essentially, the World Wide Web has given everyone an extra tall flagpole from which they can fly their freak flag.Also, it allows them to spot others whose...

Embracing the World of Remote Work Environments

I spent almost eight years working remotely before joining my current employer in 2016. I learned a lot from that experience including the importance of maintaining a presence when not on site. Much of the world has suddenly been forced to shift to remote working conditions and it's exposed a lot of problems which might never have surfaced if not for the coronavirus. As we work through this unusual period it's important to consider how this experience should affect our work life during and after...

POTD: Stormtrooper White – Heckler & Koch MR308

Photo Of The Day – All it takes to take a great photo is sometimes to be there.

Brady McDonald’s Analogy More Evidence of Desperate Gun-Grabber Lies

Brady McDonald's Analogy More Evidence of Desperate Gun-Grabber Lies U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “Let's be clear, gun stores are NOT McDonald's,” the Brady Campaign asserts in a transparently ridiculous attempt to deceive its low information Facebook followers. “You shouldn't be able to buy an AR-15 like you do a burger and fries.” Let’s be clear: You can’t. Just as first-time gun owners are finding out they can’t just “buy a gun online” and they’re not easier to get than “books” and “vegetable...

Zanotta’s Oliva Chair Offers Sculptural Harmony

There’s definitely a sense of sea life in Zanotta’s Oliva chair by designer Constance Guisset. From the front, it looks like a bi-valve, seat and back resembling the twin shells of a yawning clam. Viewed from the side, however, Oliva has a crustacean aspect. The chair’s innovative design features a continuous front leg that literally pierces the cushion to join the back legs in a geometrical V. In creating Oliva, designer Guisset wanted to highlight the interplay bet...

epub to pdf - page too small

Hi... I'm an inner city teacher, and I'm trying to format some ebooks that my students can read online. The "surest" file format they all seem to be able to access is PDF. So I found several books they'd love in EPUB format, and I'm using calibre to convert them to PDF. The problem is that the generated PDF files are way too small... less than a quarter the size of an actual page. I've looked for solutions for days, and have played around with Base Font Size under "Look & Feel", and Paper Si...

Hi there, When I have the book list, books are sorted alfabeticaly, ignoring the 'the's' and 'a'. But in the column title, these words are still at the beginning of the title. I'd like to show the column 'title sort', instead of 'title'. Is that possible? Greetings from Holland!

Boox Fulfilling Nova 2 Orders Today + Q on Note-taking

In case it saves others from checking the DHL tracking repeatedly: the Nova 2 I pre-ordered March 30 appears to be shipping out today with projected delivery on April 21. One question for current Boox users: If you want to highlight text in an epub document and write notes relating to the highlighted text, can you do that in a way that can later be exported to your PC? If not, do you just create a document for notes and jot down the page numbers?

Highlight problem with newlines in PDF files

When I highlight text in a PDF file, it seems that the break lines are ignored and so the word ending each line and the one starting the next line are recorded as a single word with no blank space between them. This error can be noticed already in the metadata.pdf.lua file within the .sdr directory. The error is also shown when exporting the notes with the Evernote plugin (no matter if you use the option to export as HTML or as a text file, in both cases the error can be seen). At first I tho...
