Fast Glass

The 7Artisans 35mm f/1.2 arrived yesterday. It's a hefty little thing. The aperture ring is clickless, which isn't my preference, but for the price, I'm not complaining. With the crop factor of the APS-C sensor, this is a 56mm equivalent; a pretty decent general-purpose focal length. Given the slightly retro lines of the M6, I'm braced for plenty of "Is that a film camera?" questions of the kind I don't get asked when using some actual film cameras, like the EOS-1N or F5.

How to connect Kobo Clara HD to Macbook M1

Hi there. I have been using my Clara HD for over a year now. Previously it would connect to my old laptop (Macbook Air 2015), but the new one (M1 Macbook Air) won't recognize it. I have tried using another cable and downloading the Rakuten Kobo app, but the device will not recognize it. I want to transfer some 3rd party books and pdf. Is there a way I can connect my reader to Macbook? Alternatively, is there a way to send books to kobo wirelessly?

Possible to change line spacing?

I've noticed the space between paragraphs is different in some of my books. I'd love to be able to tweak this for easier reading. I'm very much a noob but I know some basics. Is there anything in the style sheet I can change to alter the size of the paragraph breaks?

Concealed Carry Corner: Revolver vs Semi-Auto Debate

Most individuals who are relatively new to the concealed carry market will typically go the way of semi-autos and be done with it.

There are a few advantages to […] Read More … The post Concealed Carry Corner: Revolver vs Semi-Auto Debate appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

Can’t get title sorting to work properly with series that has decimal places

I’m using the following metadata plugboard which I previously found on this forum, as follows: {series}{series_index:0>2s| #| – }{title} On my Kindle, I’m sorting by list view, by Author. And it’s sorting like this Percy Jackson #1.50 - Book 1.5 title Percy Jackson #01 - Book 1 title How do I get it so that #01 appears prior to #1.50 Not crazy about the mixing of formats either, #01 doesn’t go well with #1.50 but not the end of the world, having it appear in the correct order would be the most i...

Calibre interface: Missing German translation for menu item

Hello everybody, I'm using Calibre interface in German (just updated to 5.8.1) and on the whole the translations are pretty good. A couple of updates back there was a missing translation in the "Add books" menu, but that one got fixed. Now, in the "Remove books" menu the entry "Remove files of a specific format from selected books" is missing the German translation, even though earlier it was correctly translated. (This is not new to 5.8.1 - has been the case for some earlier updates.) Is this...

Calm & Bright

Christmas Eve greetings friends! At last… I finally snapped a few photos of my living room, and the theme this year? Extra calm, light and bright. I didn’t deck all the halls as I have in years past because I wanted to keep it oh-so-simple. This year with socializing minimized, the only people I’m decorating for are the ones I live with so there was no need for excess. I’m patting myself on the back that I didn’t buy anything new other than a sweet pair of wood reindeer, you’ll spy them on the m...

What’s safe to put into a compost pile and what to avoid

Q: I enjoy your articles in the Orange County Register and have a question for you. Is it safe to use shredded newspaper as compost in the garden? I have so many earthworms and I am concerned that the newspapers would be unsafe for my earthworms. Thanks for any info! A: Shredded newspaper is a perfectly fine addition to a worm bin or compost pile but use only the non-glossy paper. Your worms have no use for coupons, and the shiny flyers don’t break down gracefully. Keep in mind that newspaper is...
