Getting hold of an Onyx Boox Poke 3 - retailer gone dark?

Hi all, Has anyone else tried to purchase an Onyx Boox Poke 3 recently? I placed an order on the Onyx site, and they clearly handed it off to Ectaco, as it was from them that I got an order "confirmation". I don't think there are any other suppliers in the US, otherwise I'd try them. I placed the order with them at the beginning of December 2020 and at that point their website said delivery was 5-8 days. I followed up 10 days later, and was told they'd be in stock the week after. But nothin...

Emulating Nickel + touch input

Hi, I've been working hard these last few days to try to get the Kobo firmware working in a QEMU-system-arm virtual machine (i.e. emulating a Kobo in a x86 PC) I've successfully (and surprisingly) been able to build a cross-compiled Linux kernel, boot the stock filesystem and firmware of a Glo HD (with a disk image formatted in 3 partitions (rootfs, recoveryfs and onboard), and I gasped when I saw the Nickel setup welcome screen with language selection on a QEMU window. This was quite unexpect...

Clara HD How to delete Kobo series / empty series

Hi everyone! I have a Kobo Clara HD which I set up following the "registration bypassing" technique (shown here: https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=217160). I don't know if it matters but at least it's said. I have multiple series which I have not created, everything was there by default. In each of the series there is supposedly 1 book, but when I click on the serie it says "You have no books yet". It also appears in the "authors" tab where there are authors which I don't read wi...

Lava Glass Mosaic Tiles from Island Stone

Lava Glass is a new mosaic tile from Island Stone that will definitely put you in the mood for summer. The collection is comprised of fused-glass tiles, meaning back paint is applied at extremely high temps. This gives the tile a unique aesthetic, “with brilliant, pearlescent color spanning the light and dark tones of each across a single mosaic.” The variation multiplies across installations, creating an effect that reflects and refracts light, not unlike the play of sun on wa...

‘Buckaroo Banzai’ is Finally Getting That Long-Promised Sequel (But as a Novel, Not a Movie)

The 1984 cult classic Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension ended with a promise: “Buckaroo Banzai will return in Buckaroo Banzai Against the World Crime League.” But the first film was a box office flop, and despite its cult status, that sequel never materialized. Until now. (Sort of.) Sadly, Buckaroo and the Hong Kong Cavaliers are not heading back to the big screen any time soon. But their adventures will finally be continued in a new novel written by original screenwriter Earl Mac Rauch....
