RegExp Help

Hi all. When I click on Authors>F, I get the following in the search bar: author_sort:"~(^[F])|(&\s*[F])" I understand that to the left of the OR, the expression is to "find at the beginning (of the author column) anything that begins with the capital letter F. What does the ampersand symbol mean, please? Thanks in advance.

The future of collaborative digital content consumption

Amazon's recent Watch Party announcement sheds light on what the future holds for digital content consumption. It's primitive, yes, but a step in the right direction. To summarize, Watch Party lets two people watch a movie together even though they're not in the same location. The first version limits interactions to texts and emojis but you can bet a future version will support video on both ends so you can make faces and feel closer together. With Alexa (and Prime) Amazon has built an incredib...

PRS-T3 Library Usage with Reader

I have a T1 and a T3 but have never used the library functions. In fact I have never turned on WiFi. I sideloaded all my books and even sideloaded upgrades. Could anyone give me some instructions about how to download books to the Reader? I have looked at the Wiki and the sticky about Digital Editions and I can't tell if I can download books directly to the Reader. The T3 wasn't sold in the US so maybe I have to use the T1. I am trying to get this set up for my grand-daughter. Any help would b...

Uploading a dual mobi format

Hello, Somewhere on this forum I read that if you upload to KDP a KPF file made with Kindle Create or with Kindle Previewer 3, the customers who have older KF8 devices (which are not enhanced-typesetting enabled) will receive just the old KF7 version and not the better KF8 version. So the workaround would be to instead upload an EPUB, formatted for kf8 and kf7, and tested for enhanced typesetting compatibility. My question is: would that work also if I upload a mobi instead, made with Kindleg...

Umarex Gauntlet PCP Pellet Gun Air Rifle .25 Caliber – Review

Umarex Gauntlet U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- I’m into airguns. And the more I get into them, the more I only like accurate ones. When you’re hunting with an airgun, you’re hunting small animals or birds with small kill zones so if it’s not accurate then you’re just going to wound it. A couple of things greatly affect your accuracy: Quality of the air rifle. Using quality pellets (I will write on this another day). I don’t own any $2,500 airguns and you don’t have to, to obtain good groups. So...

Toolbar button goes off-screen when a plugin needs to be updated?

This is a very confusing issue. I have "Plugin Updater" as a button on my main toolbar: Attachment 180295 Normally all the toolbar buttons fit on-screen. But when one of my plugins needs updating (the icon turns to an exclamation point when this happens), the Preferences button at the end of the toolbar gets pushed off-screen. (Sadly, I didn't think to take a screenshot.) Why does this happen? :blink: Attached Thumbnails
