Mouseguns, Then and Now

A frequently-encountered fixture at the gun store is the crusty old dude leaning on the counter...it doesn't matter if he's leaning on the employee side or the customer side, he's there somewhere...and intoning that all these new-fangled nine millimeter pistols are silly and calibers don't count for self defense unless they start with "four". Given the persistence of this hoary myth, where did all those .38, .32, and even .25 handguns come from back in the good ol' days? For starters, dispe...

Forma/Libra: Any comparison photos of Same book on BOTH these readers?

Hi again all. As to my trying to decide Forma vs Libra, if the $110 extra is worth it for little more viewing space.... I'm trying to find a photo or vid (so far no luck) showing the SAME book displayed on a Forma beside a Libra I know I can turn a Libra landscape and basically get the same viewing width as the Forma (yes?) but I'm trying to get a sense of comparable difference. I've given up trying to compare a Mass Market book to the display on a forma or libra. --- boiled down, I'm tryin...

Forma or Libra -- Current State of these units? (I want one)

Hi everyone, thanks for the add. The short.., I've had a few older Kobos, never really used much. My fault, not the Kobo (I actually really like the product & the idea.) I want to really embrace the idea of the ereader environment now. Especially since I saw the Forma and Libra. Where I am, it would cost me around $235 for a Libra and $345 for an 8gb Forma. It's the upper upper end of where I want to be, but willing to make the commitment. I've been back and forth on which one... HOWEVER.....

Mystery and Crime Footner, Hulbert: The Dark Ships (1937); v1, 22 Feb 2020

Not a series novel. Racket-busting lawyer returns home in triumph after a big case to find his girl friend associating with a man he instinctively distrusts.

United in Condemnation & Tonic: A Letter to the Midwest

21 February 2020 Lovettsville, VA Dear Scott, It is Sunday morning, everyone is fed, and there is still six inches of crusty, icy snow upon the ground. The will to put my boots back on and be upthrusting and productive outside dwindles with each contented sigh of little Mungo here at my feet.  It is a good time to answer your letter. I had thought of answering it last Sunday, regardless of the momentous date, but couldn’t trust you to leave the easy joke alone. It appears we are finally in agre...

How national parks, cultural artifacts and the wilds of the West inspired a crime romp

“I wanted to try something I hadn’t seen before, but more than anything I just wanted people to read a crime novel they can have fun with,” says Todd Robert Petersen, referring to his new book, “Picnic in the Ruins” out now from Counterpoint Press.  The book is a romp populated with a cast of eccentric characters and marked by extreme moments of dark humor, delicious irony and bizarre scenes. It all takes place in the surreal red-rock backcountry and small towns of Utah and Arizona, and in na...

Looking for basic, Calibre-compatible, e-ink reader

My old Kindle is getting a little long in the tooth, so I was hoping to get a suggestion for a replacement. I don't want anything fancy, just a simple e-ink reader that works well with Calibre. My needs are pretty simpleE-Ink only Decent Battery life Works well with Calibre - I was hoping for something that would automatically use the calibre categories, if that exists. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Troubleshooting Kindle PW3 Accidental Update

Hello all, Apologies in advance if this has been asked already. I searched for an answer before registering but found no useful threads. I've got a PW3 that I jailbroke a few years back, and I've been using KUAL and KOreader for EPUBs and the occasional PDF. Yesterday I took the Kindle off of airplane mode for the first time in a long time to browse books on the store. I accidentally left airplane mode off as I ran some errands and the device automatically updated to 5.13.4. As such I can no l...
