Busy earlier, but back home.

Range trip this morning. Got the dot sighted in on SECRET REVIEW GUN and did some jello shots for a speculative article (I've never written an article on spec before, so this is untrodden ground for me.)Also popped a few caps through that little Bond Arms 9x19mm derringer for yuks. More later. . [Author: Tam]

A Fancy Man

I’m do the handwork/finishing on some tattooed men that are already sewn up so it is going to be a bit all over the place. The first fellow is fancy because of his colorful tattoos and blue-green boots! So many skeletons! He has an antique button on his belt.

Overdrive in Kobo — new behavior?

I borrowed a book from the library recently, downloaded the ascm file to my computer, moved that to my Tolino Shine 2 and then it downloaded the book from wherever they come from. (I guess an Adobe server somewhere.) I then went to my Aura Edition 2 to see if I could still download the book there (which I've been able to do in the past). But I didn't have to specifically download it, it was already displayed in the "My Books" section. I didn't do a thing to get it. I don't remember that happeni...

Single EPub not updating in CC when syncing

I use CC for reading fanfic and I use the FanFicFare plugin on Calibre to update when a story is updated. Last week, I synced my CC on two devices (both Android) with my computer’s Calibre library. And a single book didn’t update anything but the date updated metadata on one of the devices. It worked fine and updated the contents of the book on the other device. The EPub shows as updated on Calibre when I open the book to read on my laptop and on my one tablet device. On my other tablet, I can...

Error Parsing attribute name

I can't open an ebook because every section brings up a warning: "This page contains the following errors: error on line 11 at column 312: error parsing attribute name" The above-mentioned "line 11" is a doozy.

Shooting the New Colt Python 4.25″ Revolver in 357 Magnum

Colt Python 4.25″ U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- Back in 1988, Colt Python was my gateway drug to handgun collecting. She had a barrel that was 4″ long, Pachmayr grips, and a polished blue that looked like it was made out of black chrome. That Python was my sidearm for many years. I moved on to other revolvers and of course semi-autos but that Python was special and almost always made a trip with me to the range. Unfortunately, it was stolen from my truck about 12 years ago. She gave me 20 years of...

Clean up Calibre tags on Kobo Clara HD
