Inspiration Arbor

The LAWN Art with Neighbors project came at an opportune time. I had been thinking about the old arbor in our side yard ever since the COVID-19 Stay At Home orders came down — how nice it would be turn it into an open air art gallery. LAWN Art with Neighbors is a community public … Continue reading Inspiration Arbor [Author: PaMdora]

Barbie Dairies Spin Off Diary!

Hey guys! I never thought I’d do this but this is my version of a Barbie diary from 2006. It was a diary with secret compartments and though it was like your everyday Electric password diary, this one opened with a charm bracelet! While I couldn’t figure out how to do that, I did know how to make a diary with a matching charm bracelet. So basiclly I Made a similar diary to what I had wanted back in 2006 [Author: Kinhime Dragon]

Airbase Peeping...

Thanks to the way air forces work, the ramps of most airbases are pretty dull to peep at from orbit. Take, for example, Barksdale AFB in Louisiana. It's the HQ of Global Strike Command and hosts the 2nd Bomb Wing. A B-52 is impressive, but scrolling past rows of identical ones parked on the ramp gets old.However, if you look off the northeast corner of the base, you'll spot the Global Power Museum, which has some cool aircraft. All the usual bomber suspects from the USAAF & USAF, plus an Avro Vu...

TitleCase shortcut and TOC

I had a epub with all the headings in UPPER CASE (drives me nuts) Q1. Is there a way to convert all words in a to Title Case using some kind of Find and Replace? The few LC exceptions ('the', 'a', etc. I can do manually) Q2. I have Title Case on a shortcut key, but if I highlight text that has a tag in it, nothing happens. E.g. TOMDICKHARRY. Q3. In a heading like TOMDICKHARRY, the tags are ignored when making a TOC, so that the TOC entry looks like TOMDICKHARRY As a work-around, if I use T...

You-Book.com

(title is supposed to be you-books.com). Just wondering if anyone has created a metadata source/plugin for you-books.com. It is a pretty good repo for books. Thanks!

Metadata changes logged?

Does calibre log changes to metadata at all? Especially when renaming a tag via the tag browser or batch renaming? I know there is no undo function, but is there a log somewhere, or maybe a flag in debug mode that would save that information? An example would be: If I batch edit 10 books and add a tag, a custom #subject, and another custom column like #for_school, in the log it would show the book names and that those things were added. or if I rename a tag in the tag editor and it renames ...

Cheap, e-ink, most compatible w/ Calibre books/plugins or can jailbreak

Finally decided to replace my ancient Paperwhite 2. It had been auto "upgraded" with the firmware that, according to what I've read in the Calibre forums, makes it more or less totally incompatible with the Kindle plug-in for Calibre, and totally un-rootable. The problem is that most of my books are from non-Amazon sources--I want to be able to organize them into groups (e.g., genres or form etc.). It looks like the Calibre plug-in would be perfect, and I am not opposed to getting another Kind...

Midwest Industries KelTec Sub2k Optics Mount Review

The Midwest Industries Sub2000 mount keeps your Kel-Tec compact, but still just as effective. U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Kel-Tec is a company that makes its money by offering innovative, unique products at an affordable price. A great example of which is the Sub2000. It's a polymer-framed, semi-automatic carbine that folds in half for easy storage. The gun is incredibly simple, reliable, and lightweight – but it does have one Achillie's Heel: the gun can't be folded with an optic mounted on it. T...

Daily Prime - Diaclone Car Robots No. 17 Battle Convoy

With it being Mother's day, it only seems fitting to take a shot of the original toy that gave birth, figuratively speaking, to one of the most iconic Transformers of all time, the Generation 1 Optimus Prime. There is a long evolution behind the toys that would become Transformers. Ironically, what was Takara's response to the then-popular Mech (human-powered) robots was the Diaclone Car Robots series in1982.

Honesty and Purple Rain, Podcast No.4

I love Allium time of year. Daffodils and tulips, having riotously heralded spring, are nearly over, and now these purple explosions are starting to take centre stage. This is Allium ‘Purple Rain’ which is a glorious cross between A. cristophii and A. ‘Purple Sensation’. It’s a bit wilder than Purple Sensation, but it still has […]

Onyx Boox T68 Lynx - brightness way too high on the lowest level

I know this is probably an ancient device, but that's what I've got and it works pretty well apart from one flaw - it's way too bright, even on the lowest level, making it really uncomfortable to use in the dark. I've seen some folks talk about this issue here but haven't found any solutions. Are there any? Like a custom ROM or maybe I should root the device and then do something? My device is running on Android 4.0.4 (why are ereaders android versions so old btw?), 2015-01-10_19-50_1.6.3_675c...

PB740 aus Russland

Moin miteinander, ich hab da ne Frage. Ich habe hier im Forum an mehreren Stellen 2018 gelesen, dass der PB740 in RU erhältliche Reader quasi baugleich dem Inkpad 3 wäre. Nun ist mir durch eine russische Bekannte ein PB 740 zugelaufen, der wirklich haargenau so aussieht wie der Inkpad 3, es gibt aber zwei deutliche Unterschiede, nämlich keine Text-to-speech-Funktion und keine mp3-Unterstützung. Aktuelle Firmware ist drauf, ein Versuch mit der deutschen Frmware upzudaten hat auch nix verändert, ...

Location of Calibre libraries

When I first started using Calibre, when I would create a custom library it would appear as a sub-library of the main calibre library. More recently, Calibre has started dropping all these custom libraries in my (Liinux) home directory. two questioins: 1. how can I get it to stop doing that? 2. How can I move all those misplaced libraries to where I want them? Thanks in advance! PS: BTW I'm still using Calibre 3.x because 4.x won't run on my Centos-7 desktop. :(

These are the big blooming surprises at South Coast Botanic Garden

A visit to the South Coast Botanic Garden on the Palos Verdes Peninsula serves as an antidote to cabin fever brought on by the coronavirus, which has confined Southern Californians to their homes over the past six weeks.

Recommend e-reader that allows me to export highlights and notes easily

I've just bought my first e-reader - pocketbook touch lux 4, and I'm very disappointed with it's inability to export book highlights. When I used tablet to read, I highlighted as I read and then saved my notes in Evernote for quick reference. It was an important part of my reading process and I'm considering returning the e-reader because of it :( Do other e-reader brands have same issue with highlight export or is it just Pocketbook? Any help is welcome.
