Misunderstanding the Job

Jeffrey Sachs is an extremely well-educated dude. Undergrad and grad school at Harvard, faculty gigs at Harvard and Columbia, lots of big-brain consulting work with NGO's and various foreign governments; he's obviously not dumb. Which is what makes this recent opinion piece of his at CNN a head-scratcher: "When it ruled this week against New York state's decision to limit religious gatherings in a few high-incidence parts of New York City, the court proved the dangers of scientifically illitera...

Let us take a look at the problem and […] Read More … The post ATF Apparently Contradicting Themselves About SB Tactical Braces appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

Another Blue Merman

There is going to be 3 blue ones in all, in case you were wondering. That was how many were in my already sewed up pile and need to be finished. When I started working on this fellow, I was thinking he looked like a fancy Miami Beach Merman with his floral tail and coral-patterned ferns. I tried out some pinky-purple hair but it just wasn’t working for me. In the end, I choose some icy-green and it turned him into a much more serious fellow. He is is obviously from the warmer climes! ...

Ready Player Two Attempts, But Fails, to Reach the Next Level

Sequels are hard; any fan of pop culture can tell you that. A sequel can’t just match the success of the original, it has to expand on and deepen it. Recontextualize the whole thing in new and exciting ways. Very few sequels achieve this and no one would know that better than fans of, or characters in, Ernest Cline’s …Read more...

Inyo Seating by Alyssa Coletti for Martin Brattrud

Inyo Seating, by designer Alyssa Coletti for Martin Brattrud, is a new collection that manages to be both spacious and streamlined. The star of the show here is the shapely seat and plush surrounding back, sculpted in a broad semi-circle for maximum room. No less important to the overall effect is the tubular steel base, “giving a wide, stable stance,” while also drawing the eye to all the negative space beneath. The aesthetic makes the line an appealing choice for sma...

Mary Higgins Clark remembered by Alafair Burke, who wrote ‘Under Suspicion’ series with the late star of crime fiction

Crime fiction lost one of its most notable architects with the passing of Mary Higgins Clark at age 92 on Jan. 31. Honored as a Grand Master by the Mystery Writers of America, she was internationally known as the Queen of Suspense, and for good reason: Clark wrote 56 best-selling books, 100 million copies of which are in print in the U.S. alone. Alafair Burke, 51, is the Edgar-nominated, New York Times bestselling author of 16 mystery novels. She graduated at the top of her class from Stanford L...

Multiple Unhandled Exceptions

Greetings, New member here, but I've been using mobile readers and Calibre for quite some time. Admittedly, I'm a bit sporadic with Calibre, but I recently downloaded the update and had a few errors that I could use help with if you would be so kind. If I hit 'Find Duplicates' I get an ERROR:Unhandled Exception. When I attempt 'Library Maintenance' I also get an Unhandled Exception. There may be more functions that would result in errors, but I haven't dived in too deeply. Some details are...

Clock sync without wifi

Hi, For the few latest Kobo firmware releases the time is displayed on the home and various other screens. This feature is quite handy, but the clock accuracy is rather poor and hopefully the reader time is reset on each synchronization. I never use the wifi to directly sync my reader, but I verified that the Kobo Application was also resetting the reader's clock when the it was plugged on USB. So, I was wondering if, for those like me who doesn't use very often the Kobo Application, the timesyn...

Metadata Source Plugin: configuration window

I got a report from a user that with his laptop screen resolution (1366x768) he is unable to select the "Save" button and cannot save the plugin configuration. Part of this is the use of "config_help_message", because then the widget with metadata fields does not want to shrink below a certain value. But even after removing "config_help_message", the height is too high. So I thought about adding the QScrollArea widget, but that didn't help and even made things worse. Or is there any other wa...
