Is it relatively safe to put calibre portable in Dropbox and launch in 2 computers?

I'm not trying to set up some fancy workflow, what I do is very basic - I put my portable calibre folder (containing the Library folder) in my Dropbox, then I may launch it from either my laptop PC or my desktop PC, which will show the same library. My use of calibre is also very basic - drag books in, convert, edit metadata, etc. My question is, do I need to be very careful and always make sure calibre is closed on one computer before launching on another computer? My optimistic assumption is...

Lowered Expectations

The arc of my expectations for Rand over the last ten years is a saga of disappointment that's hard to go back and read.I once thought he'd bring some libertarianish sensibilities to the Senate. Now I'm relieved that he doesn't actually fling poo in a *literal* fashion.— Tamara K. (@TamSlick) December 17, 2020 [Author: Tam]

Can not connect my H2O to new MacBook Pro with Apple M1 chip.

Have just purchased a new Apple MacBook Pro which has the M1 chip. This new MacBook Pro will not recognise my Kobo ereader. Apple are no help and I have not as yet received a response from Kobo.

160,000+ Medieval Manuscripts Online: Where to Find Them

“Manuscripts are the most important medium writing has ever had,” declares the Centre for the Study of Manuscript Cultures at the Universität Hamburg. Under the influence of a certain presentist bias, this can be hard to believe. We are conditioned by what Marshall McLuhan described as The Gutenberg Galaxy: each of us is in some way what he called (in gendered language) a “Gutenberg Man.” From this point of view, “manuscript technology,” as he wrote in 1962, does “not have the intensity or powe...

Forma Large Database Question

I have what seems to be an incredibly large Kobo database (800+MB for approximately 6,500 kepubs). All of my books are sideloaded. If I log out of my Kobo account and log back in, will I have to resend everything back to my Forma? Or will the login/logout just rebuild the database while maintaining my books on the device? :thanks:

Help get rid of that cottony stuff on your tree by eliminating ants

Q: I need your help in identifying what is attacking our large ficus hedge that surrounds three sides of our property. I have taken samples of the white cottony disease to three local nurseries and have gotten different answers each time. This is a recurring problem but has gotten worse this past year. I have used Spinosad previously so not sure if it helped or not. We live near the ocean in South Laguna Beach so moisture could be an issue. The hedge is very tall (12 feet) and is the main barrie...
