I thought the opening credits to American Gods had a familiar feel. Looking into it, the production house that did them, Elastic, also did the opening for Altered Carbon and (maybe my favorite) the first season of True Detective. . [Author: Tam]

Book error on Samsung Nook but not in Calibre

I downloaded an entire series of books and read the first three without any problems on my Samsung Tab E Nook. The 4th book gives me an error and won't open. I can open the book in the Calibre reader. I have re-downloaded the book, also I have deleted it from both the device and the library and reloaded it all with the same error. Any ideas? Thanks

Concealed Carry Corner: Questioning Whether You Could Take A Human Life

Welcome back to TFB’s Concealed Carry Corner. Most people have heard various statistics about people being killed with their own gun, of which I don’t really pay attention to, since the typical sources are coming from known anti-gunners. However, I won’t deny that people have been killed with their own firearms, which could stem from […] Read More … The post Concealed Carry Corner: Questioning Whether You Could Take A Human Life appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

Winter Wonders

In late February, just as my spirit is beginning to get bogged down with ice and snow, hope appears very low to the ground. So low, in fact, that I usually have to lie on my stomach to capture the moment. Winter aconite, snow crocus, and snowdrops are in flower. These blooms are the first to burst from the ground when the snow begins to melt. The snowdrops often appear even before all the snow is gone. They are a gift. winter aconite (Eranthis hyemalis) snowdrops (Galanthus nivalis) ...

VA Senator Admits To Adding Barriers & Hoops For Gun Owners

RICHMOND VA –-(Ammoland.com)- SB 1430 failed in the Virginia Senate Judiciary. The bill’s point was to eliminate a double background check that the Commonwealth requires when someone sells an NFA item privately. Senator Bill DeSteph introduced the bill because of a poorly written Virginia law. Right now, if someone buys an NFA item from a private seller, the law requires them to go through a background check at the time of sale and an identical background check at the time of the transfer of ...

Beeline/Gradient reader plugin for KOReader?

Sorry if this has already been posted, couldn't find anything on the search. So: I'm a huge fan of Beeline reader (and its FOSS version), and was wondering if anything like it exists/could be made for the KOReader. Maybe different gradient tones for every line?

PRS-300 Deleting Books from PRS-300SC without Calibre

Congressional Legislation 101 – Sponsorship And Co-Sponsorship, iStock-1154438278 Congress – -(AmmoLand.com)- When discussing legislation, like HR 127 or HR 880, there are two terms Second Amendment supporters should be well aware of: Sponsorship and Co-Sponsorship.

‘G.I. Joe’ TV Series Centered on Lady Jaye in Development at Amazon

Hollywood is desperate to squeeze all it can out of G.I. Joe, on both the big and small screens. The latest example: Lady Jaye, an undercover operative within that universe, is now getting her own live-action G.I. Joe TV show, which is in the works at Amazon. Adrianne Palicki (Fright Night Lights) played that character in the 2013 movie G.I. Joe: Retaliation, but it’s unclear if she’ll be back to reprise the role or if someone else will be stepping into Lady Jaye’s…um, fatigues? Leather jacket?...

She is #12 of the ladies and the last one for now. That is a lot of the same pattern for me- I get bored easily! Embroidered leaves/ferns and an owl face button. Also, fancy shoe laces!

My ONE remaining Concern getting an eReader (LIBRA)

So, I guess I found the root of what's making me indecisive about Libra/Forma... or any at all. I'm leaning to the Libra, mainly because I don't like all the negative hardware reviews on the forma. That said --- It's how PDFs are handled. My only worry (since the beginning) is reading PDF on Libra. I've seen plenty of MAnga videos with the Libra, and it's mainly fine. Good. But, PDF..... I mentioned this somewhere but didn't get an answer... Even on my PC, when reading a PDF, you have t...
