Lee Press On Ammo

I must be getting bored, because this is starting to look like an enjoyable project: A Lee Hand Press and a set of 9mm dies. I've got thousands of small pistol primers, freezer bags full of once-fired brass, and I have no idea how many projectiles of various types. Powder's probably my weak link, but I'm pretty sure I've got a few pounds that'll work with nine loads. I can't really use homemade 9mm stuff for work, and really wouldn't want to load in those kind of volumes anyway. For that I'd...

Automotif CCI...

File this one under "Cars I will definitely circle back around the block to park and photograph." It's an Edsel Ranger! After the disastrously low sales of the 1958 model, the styling of the 1959 Edsels was dramatically toned down. This '59 Ranger almost looks normal, with the giant chrome toilet seat that dominated the prow of the '58 model shrunk down to a styling fillip in the center of an otherwise normal horizontal chrome grille. "In a series of money-saving measures, the Teletouch Driv...

Kindle for PC v1.17 can no longer register?

It's been a few months since I'd bought an ebook from Amazon, but today I bought the next four books in the Discwotld series, and went through my usual process to get them into Calibre. I fired up my Windows 10 VM, and downloaded them in Kindle for PC. Only to find that Amazon had updated my Kindle app to the most current version despite my having turned auto-update off in settings. So I uninstalled, and reinstalled version 1.17. And when I tried to register it good me I had and invalid ema...

Where is the best place to plant a Camellia? If you have purchased a Camellia cultivar then well done, you obviously have good taste. Dark glossy leaves combined with absolutely gorgeous blooms, why wouldn't you want one in your garden? Well there may be a couple of reasons, one being the price of the more fancy varieties. The second, and arguably more pertinent is that once established they can often become pale and stunted! So in order to get the best performance out of your chosen ...

Ubuntu Thin font don't shuw up in list

Hello there I'm new, I got a Kindle basic since 2015 but i started really using it just last year. I both bought books and sideloaded some good ol' public domain titles (that literally and literary open a world for me) So, to the question: I use ubuntu typeface family but since some month ago, i believe, i cannot choose the Thin font no matter what format or from what source the book is except when Ubuntu Thin is the only font present in the custom font folder.

Metadata Download - keying off Series & Series_Index

I'm new to plugin writing (and even somewhat to Python though not to programming generally). I'm trying to write a plugin that uses the series and series_index fields to help locate covers/metadata for items. I've been examining the existing examples of metadata plugins, and I haven't seen any that seem to reference those pieces of metadata. It looks like author and title get passed explicitly, but I'm unclear on how I should reference other metadata fields in my code. Sorry if this is an obvio...

What’s going on with these oranges, roses and camellias in the garden right now

“Some of the fruit on my orange tree are deformed, their skin is bumpy, and the skin and pulp are more of a yellow, as well as being much larger than the good fruit, which is as good as it’s been for years. Otherwise, the tree looks healthy.” — Karl Chulski, La Habra You are describing rootstock fruit, borne on a branch or branches that have grown off the bottom of the trunk.  Nearly all fruit trees, at least those available in the nursery trade, consist of a scion (desired fruit-bearing variety...

From the satellite view, it looks like Brookings, South Dakota has something like twenty or twenty-two softball fields. It's tricky keeping track of them all and I kept losing count. Just at a rough guess, that's enough to let something like ten percent of the town's population play softball all at once. Three baseball diamonds, too. (In general, you can tell them apart because baseball diamonds tend to have grass in the infield.) Bob Shelden Field, home field for Brookings High, is pretty gra...

Pissing Away a Privilege and a Newly Invented Theology; A Letter to VA.

January 27, 2021 Cincinnati, Ohio  Dear Marianne, It was a great relief to receive your most recent letter. I was a bit worried my previous letter to you might have been a little on the harsh side. I apologize for shining so much light on how much you like to complain. It was very generous of you to say that I’m the better person in your last letter, but the fact is–and we both know this–we could squabble all day on the issue of which of us is worse. While it would be terrific fun for us, I fear...

Google Play Books and a CSS-specific error
