Tag Browser sub-catagorization scheme

I thought it was an option to sort by populatity. I can't find the option anywhere. Also, not that I expect anything to change, but I wanted to know if it's just me or does the little circle that moves indicating that a book is opening, the "wait" circle, is it just me, or does it kind of start off by looking like a bug on the screen? LOL!

finding an astrisk in the tag browser

I have some tags from multiple columns that have astrisks in them (obfuscation of naughty words), and I was trying to find them using the search feature in the tag browser. Not the general search, but the little space at the bottom where there is room to type in a search term and then the browser collapses and just shows ONLY what you were searching for. I can't get it to search an astrisk. I know they are there, but I can't find them using that feature. I can find them in general search, bu...

Gratuitous Gun Pr0n #195...

Because Racegun

My initial look at the FN 509 LS Edge is up at RECOILweb: "Developed with input from demanding shooters like Dave Sevigny and Tim Kennedy, the FN 509 LS Edge has a host of details to help it deliver the results. For instance, the suppressor-height irons, solid black in the rear and fiber optic with a bright green light pipe up front, line up for a lower-third co-witness on most miniature red-dot sights. The magazine release, while still ambidextrous, has the right-hand button heavily beveled...

ARFCOM Censored 01-11-2121 U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- In what can only be assumed to be a concerted effort by the technocracy, a new round of conservative purges hit social media platforms. Twitter banned the President of The United States shortly before also banning General Mike Flynn. This move came after protestors entered the Capitol Building on January 6th. President Trump called for calm and asked protestors to go home, yet that wasn’t enough for the social media giants not to take advant...

How will Calibre handle Calibre 5 only plugins?

What happens if a plugin that was written before Calibre 5 ends up no longer working on Calibre 4.23 because of no longer being Python 2 compatible? How will Calibre handle it? As I see it now, Calibre 4.23 or earlier will pull up a notification that there is a new version, the new version will be installed and screw with the existing version. Will Calibre be modified such that it will handle this issue and not show plugins that only work on Calibre 5 to Calibre 423 or earlier versions?

Hi from an alien of the Kobo world!

Hi, I'm the owner of multiple Kobos since 2015. I like to hack them to their core, as I recently got X working on them (https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=336210 and https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=336433) and I made a few other tweaks/mods for those devices.

There with Kobos, it's very easy to just get into the device; type "...

How to increase contrast?

How to increase contrast? Hi there, I recently purchased a Kobo Forma and I’m comparing it to a Kindle Oasis 3 and I find of the Kindle has better contrast. By contrast I mean the grey colour of the e-ink compared to the grey background of the unit when unlit. I find that the more front lighting I use, the more the contrast seems to be reduced. I have tried increasing the weight of text and I find it’s helpful, but the Kindle Oasis 3 still seems to have better contrast with the same weightin...
