POTD: L’opération Sentinelle à Dijon – FAMAS & HK416F

Boox Max HDMI mode not crisp

(This is about the Max Lumi, but probably applies to the other Max devices as well.) I received my eagerly awaited Boox Max Lumi two days ago, and I had high hopes for the HDMI monitor mode. Unfortunately, I am facing troubles. It can connect to my Linux laptop (a Thinkpad), xrandr shows the 2200×1650 resolution for the HDMI1 device, and I can show my screen there. But it doesn't look right: The fonts are frazzeled, and one-pixel-wide solid black lines turn out to to be dotted. This is in „F...

Real Avid Lets You Clean Your AK Rifle Like a Gun Boss

While very durable, high-end AKs like this Arsenal SGL-21 still need a thorough cleaning on occasion. Why not spend the extra dough on a weapon-specific kit? IMG Jim Grant U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Over the past few years, a new breed of firearms owners has emerged. It is difficult to pinpoint an exact time, whether it was when the AR or AK-platform rifles were introduced or with the advent of the polymer frame pistols.

Is there a way to create reflowable ebooks without using Amazon technology?

Hi, I am trying to create reflowable ebooks. The ebooks are in epub format and are in Arabic language. That being said, epub is not supported on Kindle on iPhone. Also, I do not want to publish them on Amazon to be able to get the ebooks to reflowable. Is it possible to convert epubs into a format using Calibre or Sigil that is reflowable on Kindle apps? Thank you.

How to protect yourself during winter pruning tasks in the garden

Now that springtime planting season is approaching, many of us gardening types are performing our winter pruning tasks and thinking about how we can justify another round of nursery purchases. Sawing, digging, and weeding are not quite as tough when the outdoor temperatures aren’t in the 90s, but there may still be some hazards lurking in your garden. The recent trend toward water-wise or drought-tolerant landscaping has increased the popularity of succulents and other hardy plants. These plants...

Windcliff: A book for passionate and playful gardeners

The very best books on my shelves suffer scribbles in their margins.  Future book sellers will either be amused or dismayed by my vandalism, but I cannot stop myself (and I always use pencil). A good book speaks to you and prompts you to answer back.  It is a long and involved conversation over many nights filled with questions, observations, exclamations, counterpoints, wine stains, and opinion. When you finish, you have consumed, and that book is set apart from those you have merely fondled or...

In Praise of Low-Cost Synths

Sometimes I try to put a moratorium on buying new gear. It lasts for 12 or maybe 16 months and then something pops up and I'm like a weight-watcher walking into a pie shop. Lately, I've become intrigued by low-cost portable synthesizers. It all began with a Christmas gift of a Teenage Engineering Pocket Operator. This was like receiving a puppy as a gift; it's a gateway into more gear. If you've already got a fancy Prophet 5 or a bunch of Eurorack equipment, this blog post is not...

Bad Numbers

Like I've said, statistically speaking, you already know the person you're most likely to have to pepper spray. There's a darker side to that statistic, and Kathy Jackson takes a closer look at it, and what it implies for some of the statistics often tossed around by anti-self-defense types in gun control discussions. "At the Rangemaster Tactical Conference several years ago, Massad Ayoob gave a presentation titled, “Lessons from Recent Cases.” It was an eye-opening look at three self-defense...

Short Horizons

Shannon Stirone is a freelance writer based out of the Bay Area who apparently covers the Science/Space/NASA beat for a fair number of pubs and also has her own Medium page. Recently she felt the need to go off on Musk for his ideas regarding colonizing Mars. "Musk is not from Mars, but he and Sagan do seem to come from different worlds. Like Sagan, Musk exhibits a religious-like devotion to space, a fervent desire to go there, but their purposes are entirely divergent. Sagan inspired generation...

Fight for Fifteen, or Fight the Future?

Fast Food Workers of the World, Unite! You have nothing to lose but your jobs!"At a McDonald's drive-thru in a Chicago suburb, customers may notice something different about the voice that takes their orders for Big Macs and fries. "Welcome to McDonald's, what can I get for you?" it asks in a welcoming, unmistakably feminine tone. While the voice sounds helpful, it's also stilted and monotonous enough for the average customer to figure out they're being served by a computer, not a human. It's a ...

Revisiting an old theory about the medicinal properties of plants and flowers

Reverend Edward Stone was sick with fever and chills when he took it upon himself to take a stroll into a meadow in the English countryside. Spotting a willow tree, he detached a piece of its bark and chewed on it. Its bitter taste reminded him of what he knew about the cinchona (quinine comes from it), a tropical tree whose bark was similarly bitter and was used in treating fever associated with malaria. Stone hypothesized that since the cinchona inhabited a wet environment, the water needy wil...

Suggestion: work in RTL mode

I mainly work with Hebrew text, and I wish there was a way of adjusting Sigil for it. I'm not referring to producing right-to-left books, that can easily be accomplished with the code, but to the code view itself. Specifically 2 things: - Upon selecting "rtl mode", right-align everything (at least everything inside ). That is, visually align right, do not add "text-align" properties. This should also fix the placement of punctuation. - Have the cursor move predictably: currently, pressing the ...

How to Easily Remove Leftover Candle Wax

If you listen to our podcast you might already know that I am a bit of a candle fanatic. I am almost always burning a candle in my home (except when I sleep, duh). When I have a candle that has been packaged in an especially pretty vessel, I always mean to clean it out after and either reuse it for a homemade candle or repurpose it in my home. I must admit, I don’t always get around to it though because it seems like kind of a hassle. I’ve tried a few methods for how to easily remove leftover ca...

SIG SAUER P365XL, Romeo Zero, Best EDC? – Video Review

U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- The term “game-changer” gets overused, in fact, there may not be a term that is more overused. However,   the SIG P365 was, and is a game-changer; other companies, for better or worse, will copy the P365 and it is a new segment in the pistol market. Sig continues to offer new variations, like the XL, which, as the name states is a little larger than the original. The P365XL measures in at about a half an inch longer and taller than the original P365.   SIG SAUER P3...
