Mystery and Crime Anonymous: Spring-Heeled Jack (1867); v1; 20 May 2020

"Spring-Heeled Jack" is the name the press gave to a startling footpad in the 1830s, and a number of newspaper stories reported sightings. The original wave subsided by the end of the 19th century. The text of this story is from Project Gutenberg Australia and although the source is not given, it appears to be that of the serial published in 1867 by the Boy's Standard, one of the "penny dreadful" magazines that flourished briefly in the late 19th century. Many entirely different stories about...

iPad and calibreweb

I have a Calibre server set up in ubuntu and calibreweb in docker. I'm using a reverse proxy so I can access calibre via calibreweb.mydomian.com. I can access it fine, see all the books on any device using the above address. (I have a mix but mostly comics right now) However whenever I try to read a comic (but any book as well) nothing happens. I can select to download but it never downloads. I can't read in the browser. I've been trying on my iPad but it does the same on my desktop Mac. Did...

Two Way Talking: Calibre Moon+ Reader

My current setup is Calibre on my Windows Desktop > COPS on my Linux Server -> Moon+ Reader on my Android(s) I'm mildly frustrated that the integration is pretty one way. I can get to all my books from the Android but no information goes back to Calibre. Is there any better solution to getting the talking between systems to be two directional? For example, I'd love any notes I made in Moon+ to get noted back in Calibre (especially notes to fix problems in a given book) or even just a "Date las...

Indexing all words in an ebook

I have one acquaintance who wants to have a mass of words in his magnum opus to be in an index with the page location of each word and the page location linked back to the word. He also wants this to show in an azw3/kfx Kindle format conversion. You would see a word index (I can't bring myself to call it a concordance) where clicking on the page number e.g. 76 would move to that page in ebook preferably with the cursor on the word aardvark. aardvark pg. 1, pg. 14, pg. 49, pg. 76 syzygy pg. ...

Does jail breaking or no OTA updates prevent me from syncing new kindle content

On my jail broken paper white 4 I added a bunch of content from Blinkist recently and added them into two collections. When after restarting my kindle and tapping the sync content button they don’t seem to appear. Nor can I see them if I do a search for them with the search bar. They do show up fine on my iPhone on the kindle official app Firmware 5.11.1

‘Discovering Griffith Park’ sheds light on trails, curses and history of LA’s largest park

There’s a lot about Griffith Park that remains unknown. The exact size of Los Angeles’ largest park is the subject of debate, though most put it around 4,300 acres. Still a puzzle is identifying actual hiking trails vs. dusty dead ends. And exactly where does P-22 — the resident mountain lion whose picture has graced the cover of National Geographic — hang out? In today’s global coronavirus pandemic, parks and mountainous green spaces are becoming increasingly important for exercise, stress-reli...

POTD: Secret Service in the Augusta National Golf Course Incident

Photo Of The Day – Today we take a look at the Augusta National Golf course incident in 1983.

Daily Prime - Stepping up to Spiritual Leadership Optimus Prime

As promised in the Combiner Wars Thunderclash feature, we'd come back around to the Combiner Wars and the many opportunities there are to build upon the Prime toys in the line.

Chuck's Reviews Cyberverse Ultimate Energon Armor Optimus Prime and Shockwave

There are some figures that rise above their gimmicks, then there are others that are all about the gimmick. Optimus Prime and Shockwave are definitely all about the gimmick. Articulation is virtually non existent since all moving parts are for the transformation. The armor looks cool and the weapons are nice but ultimately these are two Ultimate Class figures you can probably skip.

Forma Kobo Forma - Upgrading storage?
