Entertaining Games for Winter Nights

My friends, how are you doing? I hope you’re not feeling too much stress because of the holiday season and virus situation. I’ve shifted my mindset and decided for the next six weeks to just stay indoors and keep things cozy while we ride out this cold weather and the pandemic. I’m planning on spending those winter nights hanging with my family and a few close friends by the fireplace. In those moments when we’re not staring at our phones, we like to connect with games or puzzles. A family favor...

Hey there friends, this season is a tough one for many. I’m so sorry if you are going through hard times right now.

PW4 Using one kindle for two different countries?

I have recently jail broken my PW4. I was wondering if I could use it for my US amazon account and my Japanese account. I also have a permanently uncharged non jailbroken 2016 kindle. That DeDRM should work on. What is the best way to go about this? I do have some experience programming and reversing engineering. So I would be willing to work on it myself assuming it's not a huge permaban risk.

SB Tactical’s Response To The ATF Potential Pistol Brace Ruling

When it comes to 2020 and firearms regulations 2020 has been quite the roller coaster ride. Actually, that is not accurate; a roller coaster is fun and ATF regulations are not.

FDR’s ‘Second Bill of Rights’ and UN Declaration Show How ‘Progressives’ View You

Don't settle for inferior imitations and fall for the swindle that governments have legitimate authority to grant rights., iStock-1006474816 U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- Tuesday was Bill of Rights Day, December 15, celebrating the ratification of the first 10 amendments to the Constitution. It’s a day I commemorate every year, either with a column or a post on my The War on Guns blog, sometimes with unexpected results. Case in point: Two years ago I invited readers to “Have a Contemplative Bill ...

Recovering Calibre preferences from a dead computer?

My laptop died, so I was unable to backup my Calibre library via the export option before switching to a new computer. I have access to my whole library, because it was stored on an external drive, so the books themselves aren't an issue. I do have access to my laptop's hard drive so I was hoping I could copy the preferences over from the applicable folder, but I haven't figured out how yet. I searched older threads but the methods suggested don't seem to be working for me. Any recommendations...

Doubt about Calibre directory location

Hi :) I have just done a backup of my Calibre setup and i see that i have actually two folders: 1. %userprofile%\documents\Calibre, that contains my books and two files: "metadata.db" and "metadata_db_prefs_backup.json" 2. %userprofile%\Calibre Library, that contains only the two files i mentioned before. What is the use of this last folder? I see the last modification done to the two files in it are from march and november 2020. I need it?

Magpul D60 Review – 60 Rounds of Glorious Freedom! ~VIDEO

U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Most drum magazines are garbage – thankfully the Magpul D60 isn't most drum mags. When I first saw Magpul announce the D60 a few years back, I was optimistic but still skeptical. While it's true that Magpul set the gold standard for reliability with their PMags, drums are a completely different beast. Plus, my personal experience with drum mags has been less than reassuring, with the majority of the models tested experiencing multiple malfunctions every time they're lo...

Virtual Hard Disks: potential workaround for cloud storage limitations?

Just something I thought of. On Windows, there's this little feature called a Virtual Hard Disk. Which is.... a disk image. You can mount it, and it works pretty much the same as a physical mounted drive. They are usable with cloud storage. Some people use it as an additional layer of encryption. Which makes me wonder: What would happen if you put a copy of Calibre Portable on a virtual hard drive and then put the VHD onto the cloud storage? But since the cloud is only handling the container f...

Any way to decrease the page margin when viewed in iBooks?

I like to view ePubs in the iBooks app on my iPhone. One thing that bothers me is the left and right page margin is quite big, which means a considerable amount of precious space on iPhone's narrow screen is wasted. I tried to change the css for the html body by something like this: .calibre1 { margin: 0 -10pt; } (.calibre1 is the html body) And it does work in calibre's built-in reader, but it seems to have no effect when I open the epub in iBooks. Any ideas?

Mystery and Crime Kabel, Walther: Harald Harst (096) - Der tote Kanarienvogel. V1.0 [German] 18.12.2020

Der tote Kanarienvogel. »Dort hängt schon einer der Steckbriefe,« sagte Harald Harst am Morgen des 11. Mai früh sieben Uhr zu mir, als wir uns auf dem Wege zur Alfströmschen Villa befanden, wo uns in der vergangenen Nacht Doktor Berthold Finster entwischt war. »Die Polizei arbeitet fabelhaft schnell.
