Keep fire tablet charging 24/7?

Will it hurt the tablet's long term battery life to keep the fire tablet plugged in 24/7. I've only done this for a few days but I got into the habit of keeping my Fire 10 tablet plugged in while it's streaming classical music.

Calibre stopped downloading News

I'm using Calibre version 4.19, on windows 10. Has been working fine until today. Successfully downloaded a couple of news items, then started on the rest which all say "waiting" in the status column. They stay that way until they time out. Restarting Calibre and restarting the computer makes no difference.

Is there an option that will let me change format icons?

As of current, my tag browser looks like this: Attachment 180031 I have an icon I'd like to use in place of the question-mark for the PAPERBOOK format. Unfortunately, after looking through preferences and even the tweaks I was unable to find any way to actually change the icon. :eek: Is it even possible? :thanks: Attached Thumbnails

POTD: The Carl Gustav M/45 – Swedish K Gun (+ HK MP5 SD)

100% sure – Would not skip class. In today’s Photo Of The Day we’re looking at the Carl Gustav M/45, also called the Swedish K Gun. Kulsprutepistol m/45 (abbreviated Kpist m/45), which can be translated to something like bullet spraying pistol. A pretty accurate name, in fact. The M/45 is fully-automatic only, and the model is still used […] Read More … The post POTD: The Carl Gustav M/45 – Swedish K Gun (+ HK MP5 SD) appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

Download (Download all) Personal documents from Amazon

Hello, as the tittle says, is it possible to download (as in save to Computer) my personal document? I am specifically interested in downloading All of the content to my PC. I have "Enabled document archiving" set in my "manage My Kindle" section. But, seems like I only see option to "deliver" to a device. It is not exactly what I am looking for.

Just a thought

Pinned to the giant pairing. The solstice cloth. Interesting that the black became green with the light coming through. New thoughts. It is sweltering today. Summer has arrived. I am setting up studio in the basement. A little time away to get through it.

Weekend Reading 6.20.2020

I spent most of my week hanging out with a handful of friends since we’ve all been so isolated for months! It was nice to spend a few hours reconnecting with the faces I’ve missed so much. I’ve also been doing a lot of sitting, thinking, and daydreaming in the sunshine. I believe part of achieving healthy balance in life is not always being productive, but also taking time to rest. I love the leisurely pace of summer and it feels even lazier this year because of the impact of the virus on moveme...

What regular expression system does Calibre use?

Mostly for the purposes of finding an online regex tester that returns the same results as Calibre. Occasionally a regex that seems to verify okay returns unexpected results in Calibre (good thing I backup) :smack: :thanks:

Kobo and Mac OS Catalina

Hi Since High Sierra I hadn't synchronized my Kobo with my MacBook and now I wanted to do it to synchronize an epub. My Kobo reader is no longer recognized under Catalina. When I plug in my Kobo, the screen of the reader tells me it's connected to the Macbook, it recharges, but I don't see it on the desktop, the Kobo application or Calibre. The procedure works on another mac with a previous OS (High Sierra). :(

Attempt to add books fails

Hey all, my calibre has been working fine for quite a while. Yesterday the RAID that I store them all was full (I was unaware) and I attempted to add some books, and they failed, and now that I've cleared space on it and attempt to add some books, it goes through the "Adding" sequence, including asking me if I want to add some books that are already there in a different format, but when I select "yes", It throws an error. It says it Failed to add any books, and the "Show Details" looks like this...

Add title="" to h* based on existing TOC -- suggestion for new feature (or plugin?)

How easy / possible would it be to reverse engineer an existing TOC and add the existing titles as they appear, to a title="" in an h* tag at the appropriate point in the book? If the file is really badly made and the chapter titles are in some random tag like p or div it might be necessary to add a blank h* with a display:none to it. I'm not sure whether this is better suited to a feature in the Tools > Table of Contents menu or as a plugin (super subtle WINK to any plugin coders who are bored ...
