Show Books from Only 1 Author

I don't know if I inadvertently changed a view setting, but for the last week I have not been able to click on the author's name and see ONLY the books from that author. Instead, the view will show ALL the books in my library with the author's books in rows of green. Is this new? Is there a way I can go back and only view the books from the author?

Modified date column

Quick question: After a clean install of MacOS Catalina and installing calibre with default setting (I did not migrate old settings), the "modified date" column has become unreliable: the dates of many books is updated even if I have not edited them. I've never experienced that before. Any idea what could be causing this behavior? Thanks.

Book Review

"10 weeks ago a crack mercenary unit was evacuated from Biafra for a war they didn't win. These men promptly scattered back to their homelands or to the Paris underground. Today, still unemployed but looking for a contract, they intend to continue being soldiers of fortune. If you have a coup to launch, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire the Cliché-Team."I just finished re-reading Frederick Forsythe's The Dogs of War, which is, along with The Wild Geese, probab...

Troubleshooting Disable a key

Hello there. I have an old war-beaten Kindle 4 Black that I'm looking to lend it to someone. The problem is, its keys on the left side are being pressed by itself, with this a question came it to my mind, :chinscratch: is it possible to completely disable a key via script or something between the lines? Or I'll have to remove the key physically? I don't really want to get in the trouble of opening it since I don't have experience with that. So I hope my idea can be a thing. :help: Thanks in ...

AZW3 to EPUB Conversion issue

I usually purchase books from Books A Million, but every now and then, I'll purchase books from Amazon, usually because I can't find it elsewhere. I've purchased a few books in the past from Amazon and had no issue getting them converted to EPUB so that they would work on my Sony PRS-T1, but I have one right now, Seveneves, that I haven't been able to get to convert right. When viewed using the Calibre reader, all three formats (AZW3, EPUB and PDF) look fine. But when uploaded to my reader, the...

Quote of the Day - Larry Correia (Again)

This is not a short one.  I'm quoting the whole damned thing: A friend of mine posted about seeing this: "Where are all you gun owners now that the federal government and police are attacking citizens in the streets?? Now that the National Guard is out oppressing citizens? I thought this was the moment you're waiting for? So why aren't you out there fighting them with your guns? You're nothing but a bunch of fucking cowards!" My response was the GIF of Nelson Muntz going HA HA. :-D ...

Power Indicator Light

I’ve got an Aura One LE & a Libra H20, both with latest FW. Both units are set to show the indicator light while charging (in the Energy & Power settings). However, that light is never on while charging. The only time it’s visible is when the Kobo is performing an update to the FW. Anyone else have this issue? Seems this light worked as intended on my old Aura H2O.

Help please - Library management for dummies

I have asked before and garnered enough info to reliably back up Calibre and all my libraries, but I still have questions.

Fireside Chat: An Interview With Pro-2A Artist, Owen York

U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- Guns are not the only thing I am into when it comes to things I collect. I am also into art. One of my favorite living artists is Owen York. The reason why I like Owen’s art is that it has a unique style. Firearms also appear in a lot of his artwork. That in itself doesn’t mean that he is pro-gun. A lot of artists use firearms in their paintings. Usually, it is a generic-looking gun based on a 1911 or Beretta. Owen’s art bucks this trend by using all sorts of accurate...

"I mean, a guy like Sleepy Joe Biden was in there for 43 years, and he says, I think we should do this."

"I saw today, he took his mask off for the first time in a while, I haven't seen his face for a long time. And he said, I think we should do this, or I think we should do that. And actually then he started speaking through the mask again. He feels comfortable with the mask on I think, and -- even though there was nobody anywhere near him, which is interesting, but he made a statement about what he should do. I said, he's been there for 43 years, he was vice president for 8 years, he didn't do a ...
