Douche Move

An old school 4473 I think I've explained the way the firearms tracing system works here in the U.S. before, but just in case you weren't here for that post, I'll do it again.Say the po-po encounter a "crime gun", either discarded at the scene of the crime or in the possession of a criminal suspect. What they do is contact the National Tracing Center at the BATFE, and initiate a trace on the gun and that goes something like this:At the scene of a messy and very ballistic turf dispute be...

The ammo crunch drags on...

It's funny 'cause it's true! With the need to conserve my own stash of nine, plus needing to ration out 9mm ammo for testing guns for work, my personal .40S&W and .45ACP pistols are fixing to get the cobwebs dusted off for bowling pin games and such. . [Author: Tam]

how do you get rid of white background

I copied and pasted a long text into Sigil and it somehow ended up with white background for the text. (Looks like white highlight when I try to read on a e-reader app). How do you get rid of it?

Possible header content?

While there are no "standards" for what page headers should contain in printed books, there are some common practices. One is that, particularly in books of a technical nature, left-hand pages display the Chapter Title (left-aligned) and the Chapter Number (right-aligned). Right-hand pages then similarly display the Section Number (left-alighed) and the Section Title (right-aligned). What would be required to accomplish this in converting an Epub to PDF in Calibre?

Import comments from file to record

Hi, There is a way to replace the pdf, cbr... file of a book entry in calibre. I plan to add annotation on files (pdf as a start) using my reader and then reimport the modified file. I can achieve this with "add books /add files to selected book records". Fowolling this, I will create a text file with comments for a particular record. Is there a way to import text from a file in the comments section of an record ? This would really be useful. Thank you for your advices.

Template tweaking to remove unused parameter

This template works great when all the fields are populated with data: Code: {author_sort}/{series}/{series_index:0>2|| - } {title} ({#sub_series}, Book {#sub_series_index:0>2||}) When there isn't a sub-series, I still get "(, Book )" in my results. That's the part I want to get rid of if there is no sub-series. Is that possible? Code: ({#sub_series}, Book {#sub_series_index:0>2||})

*TINY TOWNS* City Building Family Game

Kids are builders. It’s just in their busy, curious blood, and I think this is why they love games like Tiny Towns, a game for 1-6 players ages 10+ (box says 14 but I play with my kids ages 6-13 just fine) in about 45 minutes.  The goal of Tiny Towns is to build a […]

Calibre adds margins

Ok basically I used Kindle Comic Converter to modify a Manga I purchased on kobo store, so after modifying two images I by converted the images of the original file to epub, then I got the epub on Calibre and used it to convert the file to kepub and send it to my kobo Clara hd. Long story short, the final result is terrible, because it has moderately big white margins over and under the images, which were not present on the original ebook. So I tried to just convert the images to epub with KC...

Editor Saved Searches Lost

Hi All After an HDD failure I decided it was time for a new PC. I've now reinstalled Calibre and, as I'd backed up my Calibre libraries to a flash drive, I was able to import all of my books without any problems - so far so good. On my old PC I had a lot (say about 20) Editor saved searches. Some of these searches took quite a lot of time and effort to write so I would like to recover them if possible. I hadn't exported them so unfortunately there wasn't a back up. I can see all of the files...

Calibre editor GUI shows extra color bar

Using calibre Preferences > Look & Feel > User interface style = calibre style produces the left picture on using the Book Editor. However using calibre Preferences > Look & Feel > User interface style = system style produces the right picture when using the Book Editor.

Color removal in conversion to PDF

I'm not sure that this ultimately matters to me, but it is (to me) unexpected behavior. My Epub3 book contains several colored images. In addition, links are displayed in the traditional blue and underlined. This includes links for endnote numbers. For (Amazon) print format purposes, I would like to generate a PDF that is color-free. That version of the Epub3 source uses grayscale versions of the images: no problem, of course. I have a CSS class (.isDisabled) referenced in each of my links whi...

The Time Taurus Tried to Replace the HK MK23 SOCOM

In 2005 the US Military went looking for a new handgun, and Taurus answered the call with the PT24/7 OSS Tactical.

Mexico Proves More Gun Control Does Not Mean Less Crime

There is no question that the crime and violence fueled by drug cartels in our southern neighbor are major problems for Mexico, the United States, and for the global community. However, the authors make a mistake typical of the gun control crowd; they blame the firear...
