‘Safety’ Tips from Gun Prohibitionists Have Hidden Agenda

The NSSF promotes programs like First Shots which helps introduce new young shooters to the basic safety protocols of firearms. IMG NSSF.org U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “Gun sales are way up, in Pennsylvania and across the country. And many are first-time owners,” The Philadelphia Inquirer notes in a “Philly Tips” column. “Here’s what you need to know about gun safety.” Gun owners can be forgiven if that assertion causes their antennae to go up. The mainstream press, what I call the DSM ( ), ha...

Importing annotations from the same book located in another library

Hi everybody ! ;) I need to import in the selected epub book located in the current library the annotations which have been made on the same ebook (exactly the same epub book, this latter being an export from the former) located in another library. I don't know how to do, because the plugin "Annotations" doesn't seem to give me this possibility, a library being not an external device. Perhaps I missed something... Do you have the solution ? Thanks ! Jacques

AI recognition in Onyx kNote app - how do you use it?

Hi all, One thing with the kNote app that I find strange is that it doesn't seem to have an easy way to use (what seems pretty good to me) text recognition. You can recognise the text in your note, save it out as a PDF.. but not really do much else?? The manual seems a bit vague on this point. Is there some way of selecting it and copying it back into the original note as text, or a new note as text so you can reuse it? thanks!

Deleting Duplicate Formats

Calibre 5.5 (on Kubuntu), with a library over 23k books in size. I'd like to delete duplicate formats of individual books, on a priority basis. For example, I'd like to specify that formats be kept in this order: 1. azw 2. mobi 3. epub 4. lit 5. pdf 6. doc/docx 7. html Because not every format exists in every book, or is convertible, I'd like to use the above priority for deciding what to fry and what to keep. Is there a decent way to do this? Is there a particular search term I should...

Illegal 3D Printed Guns in Europe by Popular Front (Video)

U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- The 26-minute video is an interview by Jake Hanrahan of the Popular Front, and a demonstration of the FGC-9. The video is on the way to becoming one of his more popular productions. As of November 23, 2020, it had over 70,000 views, basically on the first day. The video starts with commentators obsessing over “ghost guns” in the United States. This may be clever editing to keep Youtube censors off the track.  The concern over untraceable guns in the United States is l...

Libra Kobo Libra factory reset itself?

Well, I've just had my very first forced restore on a Kobo in... 7 years I think? Latest firmware installed, patches applied, Windows 10 64-bit laptop with Calibre 5.5. I wasn't doing anything unusual - I had the reader connected to Calibre so I could send over a couple of books, and while I was at it I copied over a couple of .otf fonts (acquired normally, no shady sources). Something I've done dozens of times and never had a problem with. Made sure to eject and disconnect the device properlym...

The Only Thing You Have to Pump on a Gas Engine-Powered Nerf Blaster Is Fuel

Since they’re primarily designed for kids Nerf’s dart blasters, even the battery-powered ones, aren’t actually very powerful. It’s why there are entire communities of Nerf modders out there, but Peter Sripol might be the first to upgrade a Nerf blaster with an internal combustion engine.

mobi not updating from edited epub

I'm an indie author and build my own ebooks. I encountered a strange problem in converting an epub to mobi. After conversion, I realized a couple html links were incorrect. I edited the epub w/ editor and put in the correct links, saved the changes in editor, and then converted it to mobi. When I preview the files, the epub shows the updated links, but the mobi still shows the old links. I've gone into the calibre library and removed the earlier mobi version, and done the epub -> mobi convers...

Georgia Senate Runoffs Will Decide The Fate Of These Bills

Georgia Senate Runoffs Will Decide The Fate Of These Bills Georgia/United States Senate – -(AmmoLand.com)- What sort of stakes are we facing with the Georgia Senate runoffs?

So, we will look at some legislation that could get a potential boost – or which could languish unpassed – should Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue lose their bids. So wha...

Forma Is it normal for the Forma to be rather slow when reading PDFs?

I often use it to read RPG pdfs and it takes more than 2 seconds to turn the page sometimes. This happens even with PDFs that are only 25 MB. Generally academic papers in the 2 MB range or less do fine. Is this normal behavior? I guess I expected a little more from such an expensive device. edit: worth mentioning that I read PDFs through Dropbox if it makes a difference
