Whoah.

So I'm looking at the county map of confirmed Covid-19 case rates per 100k population and it is, for the most part, a population heat map...except the darkest county in Indiana is not Marion, but...Cass county? Three thousand something cases per hundred thousand people? I'm scratching my head and thinking "The biggest city in Cass county is Logansport; I doubt there are a hundred thousand people there."So I hit the Google and discovered the reason:"Pork processing is labor intensive and conduct...

Metadata plugin from multiple different book title formats

Is there a plugin that is able to get metadata from the book titles and import them automatically into custom fields or primary fields? An example is if I have book names like this and I want to add them all in one go with metadata being pulled from their titles: [author (publisher)] book title (series) [language] [author (publisher)] book title [language] [author (publisher)] book title [author] book title (publisher) I've tried using adding book regex but it will only work for one of each...

Daily Prime - Optimus Prime of the Rings

Arguably, Optimus Prime is on a quest to ensure freedom for all sentient beings, no rings required. Sorry if you were expecting something connecting the Transformers with the "Lord of the Rings". Today's Prime shot is simply a silver cast ring of the Transformers (2007) Optimus Prime's head. Just in time for a proposal of marriage if you dare (pun), fashion statement, or self-defense measure.

Flyover!

The 122nd Fighter Wing (Blacksnakes) of the Indiana Air National Guard did a flyover today of most of the major health care institutions in the center of the state. I messed up my timing and didn't get the 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS lens on the camera in time, and so had to use the non-stabilized 70-200mm f/2.8L that was on the camera. The 50.6MP sensor on the 5DS is pretty unforgiving so the images aren't as sharp as I'd like if you zoom in. They've got some stores on the racks; looks like a rep...

POTD: Norma .500 Nitro Express

Say hello to the .500 Nitro Express in Today’s Photo. Some people like hard-kicking calibers. I am not one of them, and I notice that my friends’ firearms in these calibers stay home most of the time. Having said that, there are times where a large caliber is a preference. Hunting in Africa might be […] Read More … The post POTD: Norma .500 Nitro Express appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

Troubleshooting Help with Send to Kindle

Hello! Hope everyone is well and keeping healthy. Was really hoping someone could help me out as I just don't know what to do. I have a Kindle Paperwhite which I received for Christmas, and everything about it is great, except for one thing: I can't seem to make the Send to Kindle function work. I've downloaded Calibre to manage my books, and more importantly, manage my newspaper/magazine subscriptions. It's the only way I've found to avoid having to pay a second time for a Kindle subscript...

Best firmware for kindle PW3?

Libra Perpetual sync = battery drain

I have my Libra set to power off after an hour if I'm not using it in order to save battery drain. Recently I've been noticing that only after a day or so, I'll open up the ereader and find it almost completely drained of battery. I checked my settings and theyre still set to power off, except my ereader is not powering off automatically! I think I found the culprit -- the spinny sync wheel keeps going around and around "checking for updates" and it shows it hasn't synced successfully in nearly ...

Troubleshooting How to restore manual backup from Android Kindle App

Hi there! Personal docs that are .mobi were sent to my Kindle account and then downloaded from the table app. I had to factory reset my tablet for some reasons, and before that I made a backup of the Kindle folders in Android, but after the amateur method of pasting over after resetting didn't bring me back my highlights. I'm sure they are there in my backup but I don't know how to restore it. I also made an export with the specific feature, that generates a html file, but I also don't know how ...

U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- U.S. Senators are warning big banks not to use the recent pandemic recovery funds as a bludgeon against industries they find out of fashion. In other words, don’t use taxpayer funds as a weapon to score political points at the next corporate cocktail party. U.S. Sen. Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.), along with 18 additional senators, authored a ...

Ebook viewer Header cuts font's descenders

When using Calibre e-book viewer with epub books I see that the heading showing author and title uses a font that do not show properly the descenders of some letters (lowercase g, j, p, q and y) under the baseline of the font. How can I fix this? I am using Calibre 14.5 64 bit. PS) Sorry for my English. Attached Thumbnails

Forma When I press Sync, how can I choose to decline "checking for updates"?

When I tap on the Sync button on the Kobo screen, is there a way I can choose what to sync? For example, sometimes I want to sync just Overdrive. Sometimes I want to sync just Pocket articles. I want selective syncing because before, for example, books or articles are synced, I see "Checking for updates..." for a long time. Basically, I wish I could choose to decline checking for updates.

a little bit of a sale on Harry Potter books in the UK

There seems to be a sale of sorts on Harry Potter books in the UK. It doesn't offer much off, but the books rarely go on sale at all. YMMV! The collection of the seven main books is on sale at £31.99 (down from £37-ish), in at least three languages: English, Spanish and French. The individual titles also seem to be down by £1.00, from £5.99 to £4.99, at least for the few I spot-checked. The £31.99 is a bit better price than 7 x £4.99 = £34.93 if you need them all. It is also actually qu...
