New York Times Book review not working

Fetching the NYT Book Review yields the table of contents and the titles of articles, but no actual content. I'm using Calibre version 5.71, but also noticed the problem two weeks ago, before updating to 5.71.

Midwest Industries MI-CBUIS Fixed Combat BUIS Review

Midwest Industries MI-CBUIS BUIS works great on firearms with otherwise fragile irons, like this IWI X95 Tavor equipped with Saker 762 sound suppressor provided by SilencerShop. U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- When I first got into modern sporting rifles like the AR-15 in 2004, the backup iron sight (or BUIS) market was very limited. LMT had a set, so did Knights Armorment, and plenty of people simply cut down detachable carry handles. And while all of these worked, more and more companies entered the...

Buggy multi-touch layer

While testing the diagonal spread gesture with Plato's upcoming Touch Events application on the Glo HD, I noticed that the recognition rate was low, and yet high on the individual swipe gestures. I then tried the diagonal spread gesture within Sketch and the underlying problem came to the surface (cf. first screenshot). My Aura ONE can perform this gesture without the jerky dance but has another multi-touch flaw that the Glo HD hasn't: if I hold the device in portrait mode, put one finger in the...

Best Format for KP4

What is the best eBook format for a newish KP4? I recently transitioned from a Nook Simple Touch to a KP4. The vast majority of my library is in epub format and when I buy books, they are usually downloaded in epub format too. So, using Calibre, what is the best format to convert these epub books into for use on my KP4 - mobi, azw3, kfx, or ???

Identify books needing update on device

This might not be possible but always worth asking. I have a number of different devices all of which have books on that have been loaded via Calibre. A problem I hit from time to time is that I may make an edit to a book in the library (usually correcting spelling but sometimes a bit more drastic surgery). I then upload the book to one of the devices. The problem then is it's easy to loose track of which device is "up to date". Devices are mainly Kobo but there are a couple of Android de...

Holosun 510c Elite Reflex Optic Range Test & Review

John reviews the Holosun 510C Elite reflex optic on his Ruger 556 Rifle.

I have been using just iron sights for quite a while on my AR556. The issue with owning a lot of ARs is that it can get costly to equip each one with either an Aimpoint or an EOTech. I started looking into less expensive alternatives. Vortex Optics is alw...

Weekend Cooking: Xi'an Famous Foods by Jason Wang

Today I’m talking about my final Abrams Dinner Party cookbook for 2020. If you’re into foods from western China or if you’ve been to Xi’an Famous Foods in New York City, then Jason Wang’s new cookbook, named after his restaurant, is for you. I have to be honest. The first time I flipped through the cookbook, I was a little intimidated. Would I be able to find the ingredients? Would it take a ton of time to make the sauces before I started on the main dish? The answers are, fortunately, yes and ...

Idea for developers

Dont know if it has been sugested before, but may be developers could arrange that the Calibre Biblotek keeps the book the user is reading, after you close the app and open it again, every time on top of the screen. If it is possible, I´ve not found how to set it that way. May be someone could tell me?
