Calibre Lite

Hi, I'm Peter Shikli CEO of Access2online Inc. We make EPUBs accessible to the disabled. I'm here to find Calibre developers for our Calibre Lite project. Calibre Lite will have a small subset of Calibre's feature set, basically just to display EPUBs, but all those few features will be accessible to the disabled. After I find my way around here, I'll post the job opportunity. First off, has anyone been using the word "Calibre Lite" for your custom dev activities. If so, we'll come up with a dif...

General Connection Error

This happens at different points when transferring books from Calibre via Wireless Device Connection. Sometimes it takes 10-30 min, sometimes a few hours, but it ends up happening eventually. This is the error log from Calibre itself: Spoiler: calibre, version 5.8.1 ERROR: Error: Error communicating with device [WinError 10054] An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host Traceback (most recent call last): File "calibre\gui2\device.py", line 89, in run File "cal...

Just in time to miss the holiday gift giving rush.

    During the pandemic, some people binge watch TV. Some read more, some drink more, some shower more. Me, I wrote another paperback book. Now, it is not actually what you might call a “book.” Sure, it has a title, (Everything good about 2020) and more than 100 pages. But every page is blank because, as we all know, there was absolutely nothing good about 2020. Rien. Zero. Zilch. Zippo. Which makes this book the perfect gag gift, providing some much-needed humor to help lower the stre...

Short Fiction Various: Past Masters Eighteen (2020); v1; 27 Dec 2020

Only 9 stories, but three are novelettes adding up to about 75,000 words, and six short stories brings it up to 95,000. After the mammoth C S Montanye collection I posted earlier, ("This murder's On Me"), I found another handful of Montanye hard-boiled yarns and a light romantic story; which are in here. Wadsworth Camp's yarn is an adventure/crime story dating from 1915, which reappeared in Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine after WW2, a tribute to its timelessness. Charles G Booth was another h...

Glowlight 3 - OOBE Unable to Update

Hello all, I've recently purchased a Nook Glowlight 3 from ebay. After finally receiving it, I have been unable to actually use it. The first time setup begins when I power it on, and I select my timezone and connect to my wi-fi setup. After connecting to wi-fi, it says that it needs to update to continue. It hangs on this screen; has been this way for upwards of three hours. I can press the top power button to put it into sleep mode and press it again to return to the same "downloading" screen...

Removing blank pages and page breaks added in a converted Epub

I did a docx to Epub conversion, and I found many blank pages and page jumps in the converted file. The docx source had been cleaned of all page and section breaks. Could anyone tell me how to get rid of these unwanted pages and page breaks? Thanks.

Change dictionary in kindle?

The dictionary that comes with my kindle paperwhite is not very complete. For example I like to read classics. Classical books have many words that are not currently used or are little known today, and every time I translate, the meanings of many complex words do not appear. Is there a way to change from the default dictionary? I have logged into my Amazon account and went to the dictionaries part of the kindle and there is only one option for my language (Spanish). I feel that this dictionary ...

Palmetto State Armory AKV 9mm Pistol Upgrade Guide

The PSA AKV is one handsome little AK. U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- I love the PSA AKV because it reminds me of the Vityaz and the PP-19 Bizon. Both 9mm versions of the AKM. The allure of a 9mm AK is tough to nail down. Objectively, it’s less effective and versatile than a standard 7.62x39mm version, and yet, it’s endearing for several reasons. Light recoil, inexpensive ammunition, and Spetsnaz cool-factor chief among them. The problem with both of these guns is that they are essentially unobtain...

Self-strumming guitar

Behold the "Circle Guitar", an invention of Anthony Dickens, which has a motor-driven disk that spins and strums the strings. You can place pick-pegs in the disk to represent different strumming patterns, so it's sort of like a MIDI sequencer for strumming — the guitar self-strums the patterns with machined precision, at up to 250 picks-per-second. — Read the rest

Susanna Clarke's new book PIRANESI is a contemplative thriller about solitude

Susanna Clarke's debut novel, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, took the world by storm when it came out in 2004. The 900-page magical Victorian epic was swiftly followed by a short story collection, The Ladies of Grace Adieu, which was set in the same universe. — Read the rest

PW2 Unbricking w/ USB and Serial

Hello, I have been trying to unbrick a PW2 (S/N starts with 90D4). I was given this already bricked.

Have Solved a Problem

I use Calibre plus a Kobo Aura One. I had a dreadful shock today when I realised that the Kobo was telling me that all my recent downloads couldn't be opened because they were DRM'd. I went back to the Calibre advice page, updated Calibre, then updated my DRM removal. Everything now works. I'm not a hi-tech person, and therefore I feel a tremendous sense of achievement. But it's Kovid that really deserves the thanks: thank you for supplying really clear instructions that even an idiot with a...

Bukowski auctioned this Samspel Sofa by Carl Malmsten Estimate: 20 000 – 25 000 SEK 1 929 – 2 411 EUR Hammer price: 50 000 SEK I may be wrong, but I believe Samspel means “play together”, a nice name for a sofa. The post Samspel Sofa by Carl Malmsten appeared first on Chairblog.eu.

Missing spaces after coverting epub to kepub

When I converted from epub to kepub after words in italics,bold or words in a - but not in all cases- spaces were missing after such words. it seems to be random. When I open the epub in the calibre editor I find that in every case where the space is missing, the or is at the end of a line. But the space isn't missing every time the or is at the end of a line. For example, for the abundance of milk that they shall give Epub displays "for the abundance of milk that they shall g...

5.11 Tactical ABR PRO Pant and Why I Love Rip-Stop Fabric

5.11 Tactical ABR PRO Pant Idaho – -(AmmoLand.com)- I’ve noticed over time that sportsmen are observant. Here’s what I mean by that. They notice what works well in other factions of their lives and adapt it to their outdoor world. Or maybe they just happen to notice gear used in another field that would work in their outdoor world. All you have to do is to think about it for a second and you’ll realize that what I’m saying is true. To my understanding some of the employees at Swab-Its! were h...
