Anyone else using the Quick Preferences plugin in the later versions of Calibre?

Below is the text of the error message data.

Encrypted apps and false names: new Taiwan book club takes no chances

Amid Beijing’s crackdown on Hong Kong, publisher says joining clubs to discuss free speech and democracy has again become an act of resistance In the early 1950s in Taiwan, 19-year-old Tsai Kun-lin was arrested and jailed after joining a book club.

How Much Ammunition is Produced for the United States Market?

Image courtesy Dean Weingarten U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- For the second time in a decade, demand for ammunition has outstripped supply in the United States. The first ammunition bubble was from 2012 to 2017. The next started in 2020. Ammunition manufacturers have increased their capacity. In the face of increased demand, it has not been enough. Ammunition plants are running 24/7 to make profits while demand is high. Shortages still exist in the United States. Common calibers have disappeared f...

Kindle Paperwhite nostalgia

Found this video on YouTube of the 2012 Amazon conference that launched the original Paperwhite. I'ts interesting to think how much the devices have matured and evolved, but also to note the essential continuity and, perhaps, lack of radical change. One thing I'll note is that even with my distaste for Bezos personally, he's a good performer in this setting http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1tvvybPV_LQ

Battery drain in suspend mode

So I've recently came across a thread about nova 2 draining battery quickly when not off. Mine does something similar, when it's in suspend mode, it loses ~1.5% every hour. When I went to Battery usage, it shows: Tablet idle - 1% Android OS - 1% even though it lost ~32% since last charge. I did factory reset to see if it persists and it does. Bluetooth/wifi are obviously turned off. I didn't install anything, it's "clean" after factory reset. Any idea how to debug this?

Vortex Razor HD Gen III 1-10×24 Riflescope, Does It Live Up To The Hype? ~ VIDEO

U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- At SHOT Show 2020, the biggest news in the low power variable optic world was the new Vortex Razor HD Gen III 1-10x. It was the first time a major manufacturer jumped out with a 1-10x and the hype has stayed pretty high even with the whole world turning into a dumpster fire shortly after SHOT show. The concept of a 1-10x is really amazing when you think about it, possibly the most versatile optic ever made. This one optic would potentially allow the user to engage tar...

Inbani’s Grate Collection of Vanities and Basins

Inbani’s Grate collection is one of the winners of Archiproducts 2020 Bathroom Design Awards. The collection, from Norm Architects, explores the aesthetic potential of linearity with a design of protruding lines arranged in a grate motif. The theme manifests mostly on the fronts of vanities, but also on basin bowls—with a clever grate detail that provides visual interest as water flows on top of it and down beneath. According to the designers, the look references a cla...

[Icon] Modern Mac theme based on SF Symbols

Hi Calibre community! Long time user finally trying my hands at some design. I've attempted an icon pack to make Calibre look more at home on modern macOS designs, by using glyphs from SF Symbols. I've try to translate the iconography with a lot of inspiration from Nicholas' Highlights theme. Most are monochrome with a dash of colour to consistently indicate states and actions. See examples below: About more than half of the glyphs are directly from SF Symbols and coloured, the remaining I made ...

My tomato looks like an alien, is it safe to eat?

Q: I recently bought tomatoes that were still on the vine and brought them home. After a few days, I noticed what looked like little worms growing out through the skin. Upon closer inspection, I realized that the seeds must have sprouted while still inside the fruit. What causes this? Is the tomato still safe to eat? A: This phenomenon is called vivipary, which translates literally to “live birth.” Seeds will often begin to germinate while still inside ripe fruit. Chemical changes occur within o...
