When I use Tapatalk app, email notifications stop coming.

Hello there. When I am a laptop or desktop computer I just use a web browser to view threads and to reply to them. But when I'm on my Android phone, I find it hard to view mobileread forum and write in a browser app, like Firefox. So I would install the Tapatalk app. But I noticed when I have the Tapatalk app installed, I no longer get the email notifications. I noticed that when I uninstalled the Tapatalk app, then I get email notifications again. Now, is there a way to have both the Tapatalk...

Pöpcýcle Fïsh!

Found on Facebook, with help from a friend... Holden approved! Holden doesn't look to be a purebred example of any of the three main cold-weather landraces: Maine Coon, Norwegian Forest Cat, or Siberian, although one or the other of his parents likely was. I've taken to just referring to him as a Northern Floofloaf.He's got the dense multilayered coat and ear tufts, as well as the big furry paws, complete with tufts of fur between his toes that give him often hilariously terribad traction on...

Image search url syntax

I am trying to add a command in MapleRead so that when a word is highlighted, I can select the command which I have named Image strangely enough, and have a search carried out in google images. Can someone tell me what the code should be? I looked at the code for the Maps command comgooglemaps://?q=(text} and made it comgoogleimages://?q={text}, a very good stab in the start if I do so say myself, and needless to say, hmmm, it doesn't work. Thanks in advance.

Unix Hidden Folders Again

Here's an oddity. I've had KoReader installed for some time without problem. Last time I fixed the ereader.conf file with this: [FeatureSettings] ExcludeSyncFolders=\\.(?!kobo|adobe).*? And it worked fine. But I just installed new firmware, the latest as far as I know (4.21.15015) on my Aura One. I reinstalled KoReader using the one-click install, first checking ereader.conf again to be sure it had the needed text. But now I have all the hidden folders again listed as books. I can't figure ...

Exclude timestamp when merging

Hi, I have a question. Is there any option to merge two books in different formats (example: epub and mobi), so i could merge all metadata except timestamp (added to library date)? Example: i have one .mobi ebook with nice metadata added some time ago, and some time later i add same book just in different format (.epub, wrong metadata), but when i marge them it copies everything, even the date when i added the first book. Then I want to save all updated books to my smartphone, but i need to ...

KT2 Stuck in demo mode

Hi! :help: I need some help... I got stuck in demo mode while trying to see what it was like... and something went wrong (something I did of course). It used to have KUAL installed many years ago, but recently the kindle got updated and then I lost KUAL, tried to bring it back and in my desperation I got stuck. It's a Kindle 7th Generation: is touch and it has only one button, the power one. I found many threads with similar situations and I think that the only way to go is the Serial Inter...

Weekend Reading 6.13.20

Hi everyone, hope you are all well! California is slowly opening up again and this week I was able to dine with friends inside a restaurant and allow our teens to ride their bikes to town as long as they continue to follow the safety precautions in place. It feels good to have life slowly returning to what we once knew with more freedom of movement and less restrictions on socialization. This summer will still be sleepy for us. I have one road trip planned, I’m hoping to visit a few towns on the...

New PC won't wirelessly connect with Calibre Companion

I've replaced my laptop. It's Windows 10 and I've installed Calibre and it works fine. I'm using my android tablet from before which always sync'd wirelessly just fine. Now I cannot connect as a wireless device or to the content server. I've checked the IP address and port on both Calibre and CC and they're matched. However when I try to wirelessly sync, it fails and says 'failed to connect' and the content server fails and says 'cannot find content server.' Any suggestions?

PDF selecting text automatically selects half the page

In most PDFs when you try to select a word or a sentence the cursor automatically selects up to the beginning or down to the bottom of the page. It's impossible to select just one word or a few lines. In other PDFs selection works fine just like in reflowable formats. Does anyone know what causes it or how to convert PDFs so that text can be selected normally? I've had this problem on an older Kindle Touch and now also on the (current?) Paperwhite, and it's a regular annoyance.

The Marlin 70 PSS Papoose Rifle: Rode Hard and Put Up Wet

U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- With my spring out-of-state travel plans postponed, I decided to travel across the great state of Texas to Palo Duro Canyon, the second-largest canyon system in the United States. Even in early May, when it is seething hot elsewhere, Palo Duro is freezing by night, scorching by day, with a dehydrator's humidity level. Plenty of views and plenty of opportunities for accidents. Now was as good of a time as ever to deploy my emergency pack containing the usual fire start...

TX State Rifle Association: Media Bias the New Norm?

Bloomberg standing at a podium speaking to a crowd. IMG MikeBloomberg.com U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- The national public health and public safety emergencies over the last several months mostly silenced gun control groups.

Any way of backporting the new ppw4 "Dark Mode" Quick Access shortcut to previous fw?

It's known that newest kindle fw are aggressive and defeat the fw update blocking methods we currently have available. It never bothered me to stay on lower fw because there aren't worthwhile features on newest updates. The latest official update for ppw4, though, added a very useful shortcut for Dark Mode without having to go into accessibility settings. Is there any way to implement that feature or something similar on a jailbroken ppw4 without updating? Thanks.

The story of Vividh Vaani

How a Gujarati cookbook came to symbolise love and gratitude during the bubonic plague in Bombay As I joined the cricket fans milling out of the Brabourne Stadium on a crisp Mumbai winter evening in December 2009, I could sense its ebullient mood. They had been lucky to witness an innings of a lifetime – an almost-triple century (284 not out) in one day from Virendra Sehwag against a hapless Sri Lankan bowling attack.

Automotif CLXVI...

'86-'89 third generation (A70) Toyota Supra, which is maybe my favorite, appearance-wise. It also remains affordable relative to the increasingly-unobtainium 1990s-vintage A80 Supras.Normally-aspirated ones were reasonably quick for their time, with a DOHC 3-liter straight six putting out 200bhp.The A70s were just a little on the plush side, and just a little too lardy, to be considered sports cars, as though they were constantly reminding you of the "+2" part of "2+2". Think of it as a Japanes...
