Recommend a keyboard? (Nova Pro)

Anyone have a keyboard recommendation for Onyx Boox devices, especially the Nova Pro? I have tried a couple of ZaggKeys models and had severe problems with keystrokes missing or repeating (e.g. "msssingg oor epeaating") on the Nova Pro and other Android devices even though it works fine with my laptop (Lenovo Thinkpad running Linux). What bluetooth keyboards have you used that work well on your Boox? (Or, come to think of it, has anyone checked whether you can plug a USB keyboard in with ...

TFB Review: Griffin Armament CAM-LOK – One Can, Multiple Caliber Hosts

Griffin Armament came out with a new pistol suppressor piston that they call CAM-LOK. This is a piston for tilt-lock barrels. The CAM-LOK system converts your suppressor into a sort of 3-lug style design. I bought a CAM-LOK piston for my SilencerCo Osprey45 and three CAM-LOK barrel adapters for three different calibers. Why hasn’t anyone […] Read More … The post TFB Review: Griffin Armament CAM-LOK – One Can, Multiple Caliber Hosts appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

Clay Leaf Ornaments + Gift Tags

I finished my last creative holiday craft project! I like to play with different materials and tools and this time it was air dry clay. I made these clay leaf ornaments and gift tags and finished them in different styles of paint. I love how they turned out! I made them with clay I found at Michaels and silicone leaf molds I bought on Amazon. Slice the clay into wedges then roll out the clay with a rolling pin to a size slightly larger than a leaf mold. Press the mold into the clay then flip i...

Thanks to kwiatek69 i became a owner of an Aura One. It is a broken one, but no matter was pretty happy to get it and im very grateful to the guy.

KOreader doesn't see most PDFs and EPUBs on reMarkable tablet

Hi, I just installed KOreader on both my Kobo and my reMarkable tablet (rM1) and I seem to have three doubts: 1. On the Kobo KOreader works perfectly, but on the rM it isn't recognizing any of the EPUBs and PDFs which were on the device before it was installed. (It does recognize one PDF I transferred over at the same time that I transferred the KOreader zip file.) 2. Maybe relatedly, I tried to download a Wikipedia page as EPUB from KOreader and it said it had no place to put the EPUB file...

Sending Metadata to Device appears slow

I've got 2400 books on my Kindle (a Paperwhite Basic 2 (2016) KT3). It's now taking on average 1 minute 30 seconds to send metadata to the device after adding / deleting books. The Kindle's about 2/3 full. The transfer time seems to have slowed down quite a bit over the last year. Is this time in fact typical, or is there anything I could do to speed it up? Note - in order to carry on using Kindle Collections, the Kindle is in permanent Airplane mode, and the firmware version is 5.9.5.1. I...

Just how much current dare you charge your Onyx with?

With my Note 2, if I put my super Xiaomi charger on it, it can suck up about 2.6 amps (@5v) and speed charge at 120% an hour. However, that is faster than my phone which was designed to be paired with that charger. I swapped the high speed charger for a low speed one to cut the current to 1 amp, it's not like it needs charging quickly anyway. I just don't trust Onyx power electronics... Does anyone know what the ratings are for these devices? As I've had an original Note lose its capability to ...

Deputies and emergency personnel performed CPR, but Bradly Smith, of Clovis, died a short time later, the Fresno Be...

Android app that can scan barcodes and produce a list of ISBNs?

This is more "physical book management," so if this is the wrong section sorry. I've been using Calibre to catalog my physical books. For now, I've just been carrying over a pile of books to my desk and manually typing in the ISBNs. Painfully slow process. I just realized that I have an Android phone, so I could probably just use that to scan the barcodes and get a list of ISBNs. Then either I dump them into Add from ISBN or use the Import List plugin. Does anybody have a suggestion for an app t...
