Cover Sizes not viewable, what did I do?

So I realize I changed something somewhere to mess this up but just can't seem to figure out what... Problem > When getting covers the sizes always showed up under the the choices so you were aware of what not to pick (real small ones unless you like those for some reason). Now I have no doubt I have changed a setting (fonts?) that does not allow the sizes to fit in the window any more when you are presented with the choices. For the life of me I just can't seem to figure out what controls ...

Friday Night Lights: NightStalker II – Night Vision For Your Camera

About 8 years and 5 months ago our former Editor-In-Chief, Steve Johnson, posted about Tacticool Cameras.

POTD: Viking Themed CZ Shadow 2

The Latin motto DVC which stands for Diligentia, Vis, Celeritas (Accuracy, Power and Speed) was not known to the Vikings. DVC is the somewhat more modern motto from Jeff Cooper to define the essential elements of shooting. That didn’t stop MP Customs to make some advanced custom Cerakote work on a CZ Shadow 2 pistol. Rune language and […] Read More … The post POTD: Viking Themed CZ Shadow 2 appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

CZ P-10S, a More Compact Version of the P-10 – Video Review

U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- I’ve said it before, and I’m going to say it again, CZ firearms can be addictive; getting one will more than likely lead to getting more, which can be detrimental to the health of your bank account. You should probably just stay away. It’ll start off with something small like a P10; next thing you know you’re getting SP01, then that escalates to a scorpion, then a Bren. Next thing you know you’re looking at a shadow, then a tactical sport orange, and at that point the...

Adding physical books from pre-ISBN era

Over the last few years, I've been adding my collection of books to Calibre. Usually I add them by ISBN and then download the metadata. Now I have a stack of older books without ISBNs. So far I've been doing this process: Add a number of empty books with no title or author Manually add the title and author to them (as well as empty PAPERBOOK files) Downloading metadata in bulk However I was wondering if there was a more efficient way that I didn't think of. :thanks:

‘Superman Smashes the Klan’ author says story about racism against Asian Americans still relevant

Back in 1946, the hit radio series “The Adventures of Superman” ran a storyline in which the Man of Steel defends a Chinese-American family against a loosely fictionalized version of the Ku Klux Klan, defeating the racist villains in the process. Cartoonist Gene Luen Yang, who has written for both “Superman” and “New Super-Man” and is the author of the recently released graphic novel “Dragon Hoops,” learned about this groundbreaking story not from comics, but from a mention in the book “Freakano...

Fly Away with Kite

Kite, by Nendo for Stellar Works, resembles nothing so much as a delicate piece of Origami. This is apropos. As that ancient art allows wondrous three-dimensional creatures and creations to emerge from a mere scrap of paper, so too does Kite seem to materialize out of thin air. The chair’s ineffable aspect is very much by design; Kite is tailored to inhabit small spaces: “a compact chair for corridors, elevator lobbies, and entrances… for passersby to rest in for a spell or in ...

Below The Radar: Responsible Body Armor Possession Act U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- People think that the Second Amendment revolves around guns. That is not quite the case. The right to keep and bear arms doesn’t begin and end with guns – in fact, while guns have occupied the centerpiece of the debate over the Second Amendment, the right to keep and bear arms is a lot more encompassing. In the Caetano decision, the Supreme Court ruled that the Second Amendment protected stun guns, but also stated...
