Automotif CXCV...

It was a good weekend for carspotting there at the intersection of 54th & College. When I pedaled over to Fat Dan's for lunch today, I brought the Nikon F5 because it was sunny and I had it loaded with Ektachrome 100 and wanted to get some shots around the neighborhood. But just in case there were cool cars out, I threw the little Nikon 1 J4 wearing the 30-110mm zoom in my jacket pocket.I was glad I did! Cool old Chevrolet! The round lamps in the grill and horizontally ribbed chrome trim above ...

No, My Kitchen Doesn’t Have a Floor (And Other True Stories)

I’ve had bare subfloor in my kitchen since one day back in 2015 when I was definitely not starting my kitchen renovation, but also happened to have a dumpster and my house and was probably drinking beer and decided to indulge in my favorite beer-drinking sport… hitting something with a hammer. Which is how this happened…  All I’m saying is, it has been some years since I’ve had an actual floor in my kitchen. But, interestingly, not enough years that my friends and family have given up...

Transfer books between libraries

As the Calibre (GUI) allows only one library to be opend at the same time, I use the calibre server to oben mulitible libraries to be able to compare and transfer books between libraries. Worked quite nicely, as the server side (showing the contend on Firefox) has the function to copy/move books to another library. When I tried to do this today the transferd book did not show in the library it was transfered to; I found it only after after I restarted calibre GUI. To Calrify: I have calibre GU...

Don't replace dot with underscore in folder name

I've searched here and seen a few posts about this but nothing that resolves the issue. On Linux, a folder name like "Rowling, J. K." is completely legal so there is no reason to replace the final dot with an underscore, is there some way I can turn this off or override it? I think I figured this out years ago but I don't remember the solution. Thanks

Red-Haired Merman

I have had a few requests for a red-haired merman so I hope whoever wanted one, see this! I’ve gone back through comments and messages but can not find what I am looking for. He has silver-y green eyes. Octopus on his chest and arms. Stitching and belt on rick rack- And fabric that looks like it would be excellent water-y camouflage for his fins and tail. Back view of his hair-

Modify web server

Hi there, I am including calibre content server within a larger home web server. I read the doc but right now I don't want to go through the long procedure, I am hoping to do this with a quick fix. On my page I have a link to ip_address:8080 and i wish to be able to come back from calibre web library to the main site page. Is there a way to somehow alter the web pages in order to include a link back to my main web page? For example, a the top, next to the Home button. cheers

Superscript format lost in pdf to epub conversion using Calibre

I've converted a pdf file to epub in Calibre. Everything goes fine, except for the fact that the superscript format of the note numbers is completely lost in the conversion, which makes it next to impossible to find them back in the text of the epub. Is there anything I can do to get Calibre to retain the superscript format of the note numbers?

Oasis 3, Forma, or Libra?

Hi, folks. I've read a couple of hundred of your posts on these, but still torn. I have some ideas and questions. 1. Me : My vision isn't very good. Large text will be nice. I'll probably read in a variety of lighting situations. I'm in the USA. 2. Cost : These are close enough in price that I'm basically setting it aside. Especially because Oasis is on sale right now. 3. Content & sources : Mostly novels, history, and philosophy. Some essays and articles. Court decisions would be nice. Those...

Vortex Spitfire 3x Prism Optic – Review

Vortex Spitfire 3x Prism Optic U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- Vortex has been producing a wide variety of optics, primarily centered around two camps.  The low-cost, high volume buyer, and the discerning shooter willing to shell out thousands of dollars for one of their HD series.  This has left some in the middle feeling underrepresented, but the sheer volume of sales Vortex commands each quarter shows they're doing something right.  This is my final individual optic review that builds towards the...

Heirloom Advent Calendar DIY

I am so so so excited to share today’s post! Our mom had an advent calendar when we were little kids (with one candy per day) and it is such a sweet and special holiday memory for me. I knew I wanted to make an advent for Nova’s second first Christmas (last year we returned home from China the week before Christmas and she doesn’t remember it, so we call this her second first Christmas—kind of fun to get a redo!). Anyway! I knew I wanted to do something we could keep for a long time and use ever...

MacOS Catalina and Adobe Digital Editions

I am not ready for Big Sur and I have put off upgrading to Catalina because it flags Adobe DE 2.0 as unsupported. My workflow is to download my ebooks with Adobe DE 2.0 and then remove DRM. I have hesitated to upgrade Adobe DE for fear of unbreakable (or unbroken) DRM. Is there another way to download my ebooks with Adobe DRM (I typically get my ebooks from Google Play books as ePub) and still be able to remove it? I think I need to upgrade to Catalina to stay somewhat current. --MH

Loading data for Virtual library only

Hi! I hope this is the right place to post this question: I manage a very large Calibre Library and the calibre-server is often crashing because of memory problems. If this is a common problem, I wonder if it would be possible to hack the Virtual library in order to create a metadata.db.subset to be used by calibre-server without having it loading in memory the whole library data. Does this make sense? Thank you for your frank opinions.

Opinion Georgia US Senate Race iStock-Ivan Burchak United States – -(AmmoLand.com)- Things should not have come to runoff elections in Georgia. But they have.

The Midwest Industries Sub2000 mount keeps your Kel-Tec compact, but still just as effective. U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Kel-Tec is a company that makes its money by offering innovative, unique products at an affordable price. A great example of which is the Sub2000.

Help! Editor has stopped opening

I upgraded from win7 to win10 and because many of my ancient programs stopped working, reverted to win7. Before this, however, I had upgraded Calibre and so had to unistall it and install the 3.48 version. While editing a book, changes were slow to update and saving the file took a great deal of time. I exited the editor and calibre and restarted calibre. The editor would not open. I have since done an uninstall, reboot, install and even tried older versions, but am still unable to get the edito...
