Kiki's Delivery Service Stationary

Ok, long story short one of my coworkers is leaving the cvs I work at to move higher up in the company and this coworker is a really good friend of mine who I will miss dearly, so I decided to make her a going away gift. Like me she has cats (one of them looked like one of my cats, like alternate twin from another litter identical) and one day I saw she had merchandise from Kiki's delivery service aka the first Japanese anime movie I ever saw. And as I got to know her she said she watched anime ...

Glowlight Plus BNRV510 Not Showing Sideloaded Books

I have seen a lot of threads on this with the GL3 and not real solution, but hoping someone has one for the Glowlight Plus. I have 277 epubs that were on my device. I always loaded them through Calibre. I did an update and it only showed 53 books. I checked in Windows and there were 277 files. I tried deleting and reinstalling. I tried deregistering and reregistering. I tried uploading books through Calibre and then deregistered and tried through Windows with dragging and dropping. The weird ...

KV How to diagnose brick?

I got my hands on a "broken" KV that does not boot but only displays a battery with an "!". Connected to a PC it shows up as "SE Blank MEGREZ" and no drive. I want to fix it. To find out what is broken I want to boot into diagnostic mode. I tried MfgTool from KindleSelectBoot.zip but it does not detect the KV. According to some post here the MfgTool in KindleSelectBoot is too old for the KV. So I searched for a newer version but only found uuu. uuu detects the KV: Code: Connected Kn...

Saved Searches: Recursing hierarchical searches

I've been starting to split up my monstrous "Cleanup" saved search. However, I just wanted to make sure this wouldn't cause any issues. Example: If I have this hierarchy: Cleanup Cleanup.Missing Metadata Cleanup.Missing Metadata.Missing Page Count Cleanup.Missing Metadata.Missing Language Cleanup.Fanfiction Cleanup.Fanfiction.Fanfics with Errors Would there be any problem if I nested these? Cleanup would be search:"=Cleanup.Missing Metadata" OR search:"=Cleanup.Fanfiction" While Cleanup.Missi...

Hacks Creating a Reading Plan

Hi all, not sure why I didn't think of this feature before, but I just realized how in some situations, having an option to create a "reading plan" from a book might be helpful, if you, let's say need to finish a book by next Friday. So, I'm wondering, is this really not that helpful (I wouldn't think you would use it for fiction) for no one at Amazon to make such a feature. If not genuinely done by Kindle...is there any way to hack a Kindle into selecting a book and telling Kindle you wish t...

CONVERSION - Request for function

I often change the covers on books when I am editing the metadata. Changes to covers don't change the book until you exit from editing and run the CONVERT BOOKS function. Would it be possible to put a CONVERT or UPDATE button on the EDIT page so it could be a choice during editing? Thank you, jp91306

Also, unlike previous red dots intended for subcompacts and single stacks, the RMRcc isn't any less rugged or resistant to the elements than the full-size RMR. . [Author: Tam]

Here’s why this gardening guide will spice up your garden

One of the discoveries I made while perusing Tasha Greer’s “Grow Your Own Spices” (Cool Springs Press, 2021) is that the licorice plant is suitable as a garden selection throughout Southern California. As long as winter temperatures do not dip below 15 degrees Fahrenheit, you can grow this vigorous perennial that develops into a five-foot-tall shrub with highly ornamental flowers. (Note: this is the confectioner’s licorice and bears no relation to Helichrysum petiolare, an attractive ground cove...

Weekend Cooking: The Instant Pot Bible: The Next Generation by BruceWeinstein and Mark Scarbrough

I had every intention to write and post this review last week. But after all the events that happened at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, I really just didn't have it in me to post a cookbook review. No worries, though, because Bruce Weinstein and Mark Scarbrough's Instant Pot Bible: The Next Generation (thanks to Voracious Books and the Voracious Ambassador Program for the review copy) can be used all year round. Let me start with a little background. I've been a pressure cooker fan since the 1...
