Fantasy Smyth, Clifford: The Gilded Man (1918); v1; 22 Jun 2020

Clifford Smyth (1866-1943) wrote but one novel, and it is based on the legend of the Gilded Man: El Dorado. The legend centred around Guatavita in Colombia, and this novel tells of a small expedition seeking out the legendary city, a expedition which leads them to a wondrous underground civilisation. The book contained illustrated endpapers, but the artist's work is still in copyright, so they have been omitted. Attached Thumbnails   ...

How do I change device driver?

This will be a long post. Sorry. I have two Nooks, a 2015 Glowlight Plus and the follow-up model, the Glowlight 3. When I plug in the Plus, Calibre displays the black icon that looks like the Nook ST. The Plus works as expected. When I add books to the Nook, the home screen actually updates in real time. The new books appear in the 'Most Recent bar at the top. In Calibre, the Glowlight 3 displays the white icon that looks like the original Nook model. Every time I connect the 3 to Calibre and th...

Books Report

Last week I sat down and tore through Marko's latest novel, Ballistic, mostly in two marathon sessions.The story is moving along, Aden is integrating well with the crew of the Zephyr and wondering if he should come clean with his ersatz family, and at the same time finally sees his sister and we get some backstory about the origins of his bad blood with his Captain of Industry dad. (Now we know why there aren't many Fathers Day cards sent in the Ragnar household.)There's a bit intrigue and shady...

calibredb very slow after large metadata edit

Hi All, I've found lately that when I edit a large number (thousands, possibly hundreds) of titles in my library, the next add I do via calibredb can take a long time. Usually adding a new title (which consists of adding the book with one calibredb call and updating a bunch of metadata fields with a second) takes about 10-12 seconds on a 30,000-title library. After a large edit, I've seen it take about five minutes to add the first title after this, then go back to the 10-12 seconds per title. T...

Cleaning the screen

I've had my Kobo Aura HD for several years now, and the edges of the screen are starting to get a little grimy. A microfiber cloth alone doesn't really clean it. I have some cleaner meant for LCD monitors and cell phones. Is it safe to use on an eInk screen? :thanks:

Unable to Open Previously or Newly Sideloaded Books on Glowlight Plus 3

Greetings. I just had an update and now none of my sideloaded books will open. When I click on them it takes me to a page with a menu that reads: Details/Customer Reviews/Editorial Reviews/More Like This. There is a "read" button next to an image of the cover of the book. When I tap on that I get the message: "Could not launch reader." Additionally, I got a book from Kobo today and have made several attempts to sideload it both from within Calibre and directly from my PC. I've put the book in bo...

Annoying Epub markup

Currently reading a series of murders ("A Birder Murder Mystery") borrowed from the library and fulfilled by Kobo on my Libra The first book had a psuedo drop cap on the first word in each chapter, and the way it's been coded and the way the Kobo access renderer works results in at certain font sizes a large blank space, or a series of short horizontal lines. Books 2 and 3 have the same drop cap issue, however they've also hard coded right alignment on that first paragraph, while leaving no alig...

Ebook filename conversion at import - suggestions

I know this has been talked about many times because I researched the forums here. But I have possibly a couple new comments/insights on the issue. Like many people, my concern is the shortening of filenames upon import, which impacts the ability to find files via external search tools. 1. To the argument that the search capabilities within Calibre are already very good - undeniable. But myself and others often have favored system-wide search tools - in my case the excellent tool Everything...

M96 best stable firmware?

Hello, I have an Onyx Boox M96 originally bought from ereader-store.eu (currently ereader.store) running Android 4.0.4 Version: dev (8378 - f9bebbc) Build: 2015-05-06_17-56_dev_31241db Is there a better (faster, more stable, more compatible, less buggy, ...) firmware to upgrade it to? If so, where do I get it from? Also, are there applications that are significantly more user-friendly that the built-in ones? Thank you.

This Day in History: William B. Ruger is Born

William B. Ruger U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- On June 21, 1916, William Batterman Ruger was born in Brooklyn. He would go on to lend his name to one of the iconic arms companies of the 20th century. We’ll fast-forward through the first 30-odd years of Ruger’s life (he attended – but did not graduate – college; got married; had a son; dabbled in machine gun designs at Springfield Armory) and pick up the story in January 1949. The timing couldn’t have been better for William Ruger when he and Alexa...

Time for Universal Background Checks for Abortions, Voting & Car Buying

Opinion Time for Universal Background Checks for Abortions, Voting & Car Buying, iStock-924058482 USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- We’ve all heard, and probably used or argued against various analogies about regulating guns like we regulate cars, or comparing the ID requirements for buying a gun to the ID requirements for voting. Still, maybe it’s time to take these analogies out of the hypothetical realm of the debate platform, and into the real world of legislation. What if pro-rights politicians we...

Das blinde Hindumädchen. »Es ist heute morgen nach dem Regen etwas kühler. Wir könnten einen Spaziergang unternehmen,« sagte Harald Harst zu mir, als wir uns vom Frühstücktisch erhoben. Wir weilten damals seit Tagen in dem wundervollen Prachtbau von Burg eines der eigenartigsten Menschen, dem wir je begegnet waren, eines Mannes von seltener Energie, kaufmännischem Scharfblick und abenteuerlichem Unternehmungsgeist. Leider waren ja die Charaktermerkmale Hektor Olgerdyns mit diesen vorzüglichen...
