Happy Memorial Day weekend everyone. I hope you are enjoying the extra day off this weekend as we take the day to honor our fallen soldiers.

The three editions of Tao Te King

A Japanese legend tells of a certain monk who was so enraptured by the beauty of the Chinese book “Tao Te King” that he decided to raise money to have those verses translated and published into his language. It took him ten years to raise enough funds. However, a pest swept through the country and […]

Enable Audible for Kindle PW in countries outside USA

Hi, I was wondering if there's a way to make kindle enabled to listen to Audible audio books from those countries (Italy, in my case) that don't have it enabled on their Kindles yet (PW4, to be precise), since it's fully capable to reproduce them and to connect to Bluetooth audio headphones, but it's only made available in some countries. Is there a way to do it?

Springfield Armory Hellcat, Micro-Compact Optic Ready Pistol – Review

Springfield Hellcat U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- It feels like just yesterday that options for deep concealment micro pistols were quite limited. People would debate between Seecamp, Kel-tec, J-frames, and the G26. On occasion the Beretta Tomcat, Colt’s 1903 and 1908 models would enter into the conversation. Later, Kahr came on the scene and broke new ground. Bringing single stack, lightweight, striker-fired options to the table. Though it took time others have followed. I’m no fan of Keltec (or ...

Smart Device App questions

Hi. I'm playing a bit with the API of "smart device app" to improve KOReader wirelessly connection with calibre. So far so good but I have a couple of questions related to free space on disk: 1. It seems that the smart device app ignores reported free space. It does not raise FreeSpaceError as indicated in https://github.com/kovidgoyal/calibr...erface.py#L389 2. I can live with (1) because calibre reports the length in bytes of each file, so I can compare it with device free space. I don't kno...

Calibre upgrade broke all my wireless connections

I made the mistake of finally upgrading v3.48 of Calibre to the latest v4.17 yesterday afternoon and it has rendered all of my CC wireless connections (4 devices) inoperative! Up until the upgrade, CC had always worked flawlessly for years. All four failures to connect have the same setup: wireless device, correct IP as indicated in Calibre, have tried with a port input (9090) and without, firewall off, cleared cache, reset, rechecked and all result in failure to connect. Any idea what Calib...

Duplicating book layout for 'template'

I am just getting started with calibre and ebooks, and have come across a question I have not found yet in the forum. I am trying to create a series of several ebooks that will all have exactly the same layout. The only differences will be their cover images, titles, the text on the pages, and the number of the pages. Otherwise they are the same. It took some time to get the doc to epub conversion to look like I want it, so I would like to use the first one as a 'template' for the others and j...

Adding Comment Column

Is there any way of adding a column to show if a book has a comment or not (book description)? I've been able to do it if it has a book cover or not (mostly), but not sure how to do it for the comments. Thanks!

Disable tracking?

I noticed there was a thread about disabling activity tracking, but it's closed and I don't know which patch I need to at least remove the activity from the menu (I hate that my Kobo is recording it and I can't disable it, but I can at least not see it.) :( Can anyone help with that? Sorry for any spelling/grammar mistake, English is not my first language.

Do you find your front lit Kindle losing brightness over time?

After a couple years, I've increased brightness of my voyage from 14 to 17 during the day. (It was already used when I bought it.) Wonder if the Kindle is losing brightness. Hope it's not my eyes lol. Had my annual eye exam last year but not yet this year because of covid

Virginia: Good News! Outdoor Ranges In National Forests Are Open Again!

Good News! Outdoor Ranges In National Forests Are Open Again! Virginia – -(AmmoLand.com)- The outdoor shooting ranges in Virginia National Forests are now open again! There are two caveats: Only every other lane is open (ridiculous, as the lanes are 8 feet wide and these are outdoor ranges) There are NO restroom facilities (but at least there are lots of trees in a forest). This is a particularly unfortunate situation for the fairer sex. Take care of business before arriving at the range. T...

[Kindle] Book keeps disappearing

Hello everyone, I apologize if this is a duplicate, but I couldn't find anything directly related. I recently have been trying to add a book from Calibre to my Kindle, and it will say on Calibre that it is on the device. When I disconnect, the book is there for a few seconds, and then disappears. It can't be searched, it is not being indexed... it's just gone. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

Justice Kavanaugh: Friend or Foe to the Second Amendment?

Justice Brett Kavanaugh was among the SCOTUS judges that shot down the NY gun case. U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.” ~ Martin Luther King Jr., ; often miscited in abbreviated form as: “Justice delayed is justice denied.” Various renditions of the quotation have come down through the ages, recited by m...

Automotif CLXV...

This 1990's Buick Roadmaster Estate hearse was being used by a landscaper to haul flats of flowers.The final years of the Roadmaster, they all shipped with the Tuned Port Injection LT1 5.7L V8, detuned somewhat to 260bhp from the 300bhp Corvette spec.Even so, 260bhp is 260bhp, and the torque peak came in at lower RPM, too. So when combined with the relatively skinny all-season tires, lack of a limited-slip diff, and the aggressive throttle tip-in typical of domestic sedans*, it was hard for gra...

looking for privacy friendly quality ereader

Heya guys. I have little experience (not ownership) with epaper. Only saw 3 devices: a 10+ year old amazon kindle paperwhite 4 some old pocketbook I liked the pocketbook most and both kindles seemed similar despite the age difference. And since I first learned about this technology I was sure I would buy an ereader some day. However, I have this defect called perfectionism. I wanted the device to be of perfect quality and last for decades. Now as I'm aging I'm realizing that may not be ...

tags all left justified?

All of a sudden, my tags are not following the text-align property for the tag they are in. For example, if I have a paragraph that is right aligned, and I break it thus: "Sincerely yoursJane DoeYour greatest fan, then "Sincerely yours" and "Jane Doe" are right aligned but "Your greatest fan" is left aligned. Same for centered paragraphs. This happens both with kepubs as well as epubs, and for epub2 and epub3. Is this new behavior? Are there any workarounds (that preferably don't involve modif...

I'm trying to write up one wolf story, and another wolf story pops ups. I'm beset by wolves this morning.

I express my frustration out loud like this: "Remember 'Women who Run with the Wolves'? What the hell was that?""I also remember Naomi Wolf," says Meade."May I quote you?""Yes," he answers, adding "I also remember Wolf Blitzer."So the first story I'm trying very hard to process for this blog is: "A Feud in Wolf-Kink Erotica Raises a Deep Legal Question/What do copyright and authorship mean in the crowdsourced realm known as the Omegaverse?" That's in the NYT. I've had the tag open since yesterda...

Customizable Ebook Reader controls and UI

Hello :) Your software is amazing I hope you noticed the money I paypaled you. After trying out the server I think I came across a great usecase which possibly weren't planned for. Hosting calibre through the browser allows one to access a ton of useful software addons, otherwise known as extensions. Sadly the default controls do not allow one to take use of these possibilities. One extension which I really like is the "Diigo Web Collector - Capture and Annotate". It lets you annotate, highligh...
