Moon+Reader double GoogleDrive folders

Sync hasn't been working for me lately, it's been increasingly irritating. (I have a Pixel-2XL and a GalaxyTab.) I just figured out why! I have *2* GoogleDrive folders created by MoonReader. And it's not like it just switched from 1 to the other. There are books on varying recent days in each folder. (One folder only goes back to Dec26, the other much further back. But both come up to the last couple weeks.) For the *most* part a book's files are only in 1 folder or the other, though there ar...

A disconcerting look at past gardening resolutions

Here’s a post I wrote in April, 2006, with updates in italics. It’s safe to say that I put almost none of the resolutions I made here into practice. Helen Dillon has moved on, into a new home, where’s she’s created a new fabulous show garden. I’m still trying not to put tall things in front of short things.  The image above is from Dillon’s wonderful, Down To Earth (Timber, 2007) In this month’s Horticulture, Irish gardening celebrity Helen Dillon writes “The Great Unclutter,” which starts out ...

Spellcheck dialog shows well-spelled words as misspelled

In code view, word underlining works fine by adding it to misspelled words only. However, the spell check dialog also shows well-written words. I do not know if I am configuring or using something wrong or if it is an problem with Sigil or my current epub. I had understood that adding the xml:lang="X" was enough for it to work properly. In the screenshot "informadas" is well-written. Is a test with only 2 words, but i'm working on a large book with a looooot of false positives, so the Spellchec...

"eTextbooks" on the Kindle and Calibre.

Hello everyone, does anyone in there understands how these "eTextbooks" work? I got one here and they're almost like "pdf files but better" on the kindle, you have some options like "fit to screen" and zooming is faster and more manageable, plus with fit to screen you can basically read everything in this textbook I have. Using calibre I figured out that the book is an azw3 file, which explains the better features a bit, and after removing drm you can convert it to a pdf file, and it then becom...

K4 Kindle 4 (Black) Constantly rebooting

Hi everyone, I have a black Kindle 4 that is constantly rebooting after ~5 mins on standby. I have tried the following: Unregistered. Kubricked. Purchased new battery from ebay and replaced (original battery). Charged for 24 hours straight. Kubricked again. So far nothing helped. Issue is it just reboots, everything else works perfectly fine. What can be the issue here? Faulty power controller? And is there any hope of getting it back online?

‘War Criminal’ Deported as U.S. ‘War on Guns’ Criminals Continue to Evade Justice

Justice, such as it is, has at long last caught up with Friedrich Karl Berger.
