Bug: Spellcheck Editable Count Column

If you double-click here: Attachment 179305 you are able to insert your own numbers in the Count column. I assume this isn't actually supposed to be an editable field. :D Don't think this would really cause a catastrophe, just strange that it's editable at all. (I tested the other two columns: Word + Misspelled, and they send you to the next instance of the word on double-click as intended.) Attached Thumbnails

Question on naming classes

I've seen some style sheets with classes based on usage in the book and some with classes defining the format Other than possibly personal style, are there any recommendations, advantages, or disadvantages to the two approaches? Code: h1.book-title {   margin-top: 10%;   page-break-after: avoid;   text-align: center;   margin-bottom: 2em; } h2.book-subtitle {   page-break-after: avoid;   text-align: center;   margin-bottom: 1em; } h2.book-author {   page-break-after: avoid;   text-align:...

Guardar libros leidos en CALIBRE

Amigos: Cuando uno lee libros de papel impreso, suele hacer anotaciones, observaciones, resaltes o marcaciones, etc, en los bordes de las paginas leidas. Pues bien , en los Ebooks estas prestaciones estan tambien disponibles, asi que subrayamos, marcamos paginas, hacemos anotaciones.

Es decir, ya tengo libro NUEVO ( Digamos "El Tunel"), y quiero cr...

POTD: The JJ Rock Co. Covert Rifle System

Photo Of The Day – As a petrolhead, I was of course instantly attracted by the white Lamborghini Aventador V12. I’ve never really considered a private jet, but I hope I’ll be able to own an Italian V8, V10 or V12 some day. What about the firearm? That turned out to be quite interesting as well. It’s […] Read More … The post POTD: The JJ Rock Co. Covert Rifle System appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

Medal of Honor Monday: Army 1st Lt. Raymond Beaudoin

By Katie Lange Medal of Honor Monday USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Army 1st Lt. Raymond Beaudoin made it through years of battle during World War II, just to be cut down within reach of its end. But the actions he took to save his platoon will always be remembered, and that's why he earned the Medal of Honor. Beaudoin was born on July 15, 1918, in Holyoke, Massachusetts, where he grew up with seven siblings. Few details of his early life are available, but when he got older, he worked as a salesma...

Daily Prime - Pepsi Optimus Prime Rolls Out For All Thirsty Beings!

The Transformers Pepsi promotion (see can below) to get an original Generation Optimus Prime toy with extra stickers for sweetening his trailer is, or was, a sort of grail piece for many collectors. Until G1 based versions were reissued first in 2005 from Takara as "Pepsi Convoy" in Japan. Then again, as the BotCon 2007 exclusive "Pepsi Optimus Prime" in America.

Import duties and warranty when buying from Onyx store?

I am confused on these two points. On shop.boox.com you can select Chine or EU warehouse but in the warranty is mentioned only 1 year and also about custom duties. 1. Any product sold within the EU needs to have 2 years of warranty, it doesn't matter where it's produced. 2. If I buy from the EU warehouse I shouldn't pay any import Can someone please comment on these two points? I would only buy directly from Onyx because they offer a lot of accessories included otherwise I would buy from th...

Extend the Range of .22 Shotshells with Reverse Paradox Tubes

image courtesy Dean Weingarten U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- In a previous article, I commented on the usefulness of .22 LR shotshells and their limited range. Their use is severely hampered by the poor patterns produced by these shotshells out of rifled barrels. The effective range of these shells can be doubled or tripled with the use of a reverse paradox tube. The Ball and Shotgun, more commonly known as the Paradox gun, was invented by Col. George Fosbery, VC, and patented in England in 1885. ...

How to make listlike hanging indents for KFX (example code in post)

Hi all. I am making a prayer book. Many prayers have portions known as "versicle" and "response" (think call-and-response). Traditionally, they are designated with "V." and "R." to the left of the versicle or response text, like so. I am referring to this as a "hanging indent," which may not be the correct term, because in word it is accomplished by setting a hanging indent, typing "V." or "R.", and pressing tab. I'm calling it "listlike" because we most often see it in numbered lists. For exam...

Updateing Metadata on Inkpad X

Hello fellow calibrarians, I group certain books in series named after the exam for which I need them. After changing to that way I updated all the metadata in Calibre and tried to update the copies on my Inkpad X with the "update cached metadata"-function in Calibre. Sadly, the Inkad still shows only the outdated metadata. See log below from trying to update the meta on the reader. It states, that indeed something called metadata has been transferred. But what data is that and how come tha...

Gratuitous Gun Pr0n #182...

The Chiefs Special 9, or "CS9", was produced from 1998 to 2006, with the stainless version entering the catalog in '99.DAO hammer-fired pistols were briefly popular in LE during the Nineties, before striker-fired autos came to dominate. This is because the biggest problem with traditional double-action pistols as duty guns isn't two different trigger pulls, all "crunchenticker" conventional wisdom aside, but rather the fact that undertrained people will not decock the pistol by habit after shoo...

Shot with the Nikon D3 and 24-120mm f/4 combo by available light at ISO 6400 in the office last night. It's routine now, but when the D3 first dropped, being able to shoot at ISO's of 1600 or higher and not have the result come out a noisy mess was a revelation. . [Author: Tam]
