TFB Review: Vortex Diamondback Tactical 6-24x50mm Riflescope

One of the things that vaulted Vortex Optics to a household name is the fact that they offer a wide spectrum of optics to meet every budget.  They were kind enough to lend me their 6-24x50mm Diamondback Tactical rifle scope to review.  The Diamondback Tactical 6-24x is one of Vortex’s lower cost options, but Vortex […] Read More … The post TFB Review: Vortex Diamondback Tactical 6-24x50mm Riflescope appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

Shop Small: Personalized Gift Ideas

It’s that time of year when we start thinking about gifts to give.  It’s been a challenging year for so many businesses, but we know Costco and Amazon aren’t hurting. ;) Those are great sources for gifts of course, but this year I decided to spotlight gifts made by small businesses, independent makers, and products that are Made in the USA. Today’s gift ideas are all ones you can personalize for the recipient. Since these take longer it made sense to feature these ideas first. Engraved Handwrit...

This Robot Can Make You Boba Tea Because Of Course That's a Thing

I’ll admit that I wasn’t the biggest fan of boba tea even before the pandemic brought my social life to a grinding halt. Tapioca pearls just taste gross to me, as does bacon, avocado, and a slew of other oft-hyped food that the internet goes crazy over, so I realize I’m very much in the minority here. Though if it…Read more...

Calibre on ReactOS issue converting.

Hello: I don't want to obtain support of Calibre 2.0.0 for ReactOS 32 bits, but I want to know what failed in ReactOS to not behave like it did on Windows XP.

Limiting available shared libraries

It seems that Calibre version 3 and later allow internet-based users to choose from all available libraries that your sever has access to. Is there anyway easy way to limit the viewable libraries to a specific library? I don't want users that I share my books with to be able to access a private library or my backups. Thanks.

POTD: Russian Combat Swimmers with the APS Underwater Rifle

Photo Of The Day – Here’s a look at the Russian APS Underwater Rifle, the Avtomat Podvodny Spetsialnyy “Special Underwater Assault Rifle”.

MI: Grand Rapids 2nd Gun Turn-in Upstaged by Private Buyers

Image from Grand Rapids Police Facebook, Cropped and Scaled by Dean Weingarten U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- The second phase of the great Grand Rapids Police gun turn-in of 2020 has come and gone. On 7 November, at 851 Leonard St. NW, police stopped the turn-in. The program was labeled with the Orwellian term “buyback”. A police department cannot “buyback” what it never owned. The vast majority of the over 450 million privately owned guns in the United States were never owned by any local, state,...

Pocketbook Touch HD - usb device not recognized

Ever since I put an SD card into my pocketbook touch HD I have had problems connecting the Touch HD to my computers. Changing usb cables did not help. Changing usb ports did not help. Removing usb drivers in the device manager and reinstalling them did not help. Other devices like a USB stick, like some external hard disks, like a mobile phone, all worked without problem on these same usb ports. The only thing that sometimes helped, was reformatting the internal memory. But that too, often...
