Problems downloading metadata from Amazon (5.7.2 & 4.23.0, Win 10 64-bit)

Hey everybody :) I hope someone can help me. I've recently been unable to download Amazon metadata on any books at all. It shows no results, even for very popular books. For example, this is the log for a 2018 bestseller: Spoiler: Code: Running identify query with parameters: {'title': 'Enlightenment Now', 'authors': ['Steven Pinker'], 'identifiers': {}, 'timeout': 30} Using plugins: Google (1, 0, 1), Amazon.com (1, 2, 14) The log from individual plugins is below *******...

ATF Rules Capricious, Arbitrary, Political, and Stupid

Do you ever get the feeling there’s a shell game going on and you’re the mark? (Photo: Len Savage, used with permission) U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- As gun owners react to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ latest bit of mind-changing nonsense on stabilizing braces, it’s not out of line to recall some acts of capricious rulings from the past. They, too, made no sense other than to show gun owners the agency could impose whatever diktats it wanted and that we were being giv...

Pettengill: The Civil War’s Only Hammerless Revolver

Pettengill revolver actions were easily gummed up by blackpowder residue. (Rock Island Auction Co) U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- Countless revolver variations found their way into the hands of soldiers, both North and South, during the Civil War.

Pettengill so unique. In an era dominated by single-actio...

Wheelgun Wednesday: What Makes a Great Pest Control Revolver?

Viewer fails, as do the suggested fixes

Why? Well, Windows 10 is a crappy, supposedly lowest common denominator that can be idiot-proofed for those among us incapable of running Update any time. That I am now forced to run this because my own software development IDE does not run in Linux makes the problem beyond irritating to debilitating. The viewer rewrite was forced upon the Calibre team, not by Microsoft, but by Python and Qt to a secondary degree. Thus, I am not going to rail about the viewer not working on my computer. Even wh...
