Automotif CCIV...

Nikon 1 V2, 1 Nikkor 18.5mm f/1.8 When you drive over to the local BBQ joint and, while you're waiting on your takeout, you glance in the rearview mirror and notice lighting that makes you glad you brought a camera...I saw this light and had to hop out of the car to take a shot.If that's the regular lighting over there, I'll be returning some evening to make use of that building as a backdrop. .

Kobo Libra: Screenshot only works in book?

I wanted to take a screenshot of the Calendar View of the Reading Stats, but no matter how many times I swiped diagonally, nothing happened. I tried in a book, and straight away, I got screenshots, so went back to Calendar View and tried again. Once again, no screenshot. Is there a way to take screenshots of screens other than the book being read?

Re-Downloading when library on SD card

I am using CC demo, on Android. My entire Calibre library including all the books is stored on an SD card in the tablet. I am able to connect to the library using the "Cloud" option. However, the CC wants to "re-download" the book file and puts them into "storage/emulated/0/kindle" folder. How can I force CC to simply open the book file from my SD card instead of "downloading" it ?

Yes/No and Rating Toggles

I find the yes/no and rating toggles a lot easier-to-see and a bit easier-to-edit than text. But I still often have to try each toggle 2x, sometimes 3x times to get them to stay where I've selected them. Step one, click, Step 2, select desired value, Step 3, unclick, Step 4, move mouse to next. Step 5, see that it's switched since I unclicked, Step 6, move back... Is there some trick I'm missing here? I got a new mouse, but still have the same problem.

Metadata Download Plugin - Bulk Downloads

I'm working on a metadata download plugin for LibraryThing, which has been "educational" and somewhat successful. I based it on the Smashwords plugin, so it uses the goodreads-style Worker thread model. My first question concerns the frequency at which the bulk downloads are initiated (i.e. select multiple books then Ctrl+D). Is this impacted by the "sleep" after worker.start()? The reason I ask is that after three or four isbn lookups librarything blocks me and everything returns a 404 error a...

News Sources Missing for English-US

I recently upgraded from Calibre V4 to the latest V5 and have noticed that all but one of the news sources for English-US are not visible. The only one there is Journal of Accountancy. There may be others missing in the non-US English categories but I can't assess that because I don't know how many to expect there. I am pretty sure that there should be tens of English-US sources showing and I don't understand why they're not there. The last time I looked at these was many versions ago so I c...

Do you think I have an audiobook voice?

Hello, I've always wanted to narrate audiobooks but I don't know if I have the voice for it. So I thought I'd ask audiobook enthusiasts. I recorded and attached a short clip of Ender's Game, which is what I want to start with to practice. I am wondering if my voice is something comfortably listenable, or would you just turn it off right away? One thing I'm worried about is I'm not great at doing voices or actual voice acting. Some of the dialogue at the end has a couple of other voices, a...

POTD: Laugo Arms, CZ and Microtech

Two really great 9mm handguns and a large out-the-front automatic knife – that’s the subject for our Photo Of The Day. It’s interesting to study these Czech handguns and the difference in design. About a month ago, I had the Laugo Arms Alien in my hands and we decided to disassemble it to learn more […] Read More … The post POTD: Laugo Arms, CZ and Microtech appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

SVG images don't display in table cells in Sigil

Just when I thought everything was working smoothly, I discovered that my SVG images won't display in table cells. To test it, I simply inserted a .jpg image in a table cell, and it works fine. But none of my SVG images will display in a table cell, even though I can display them inside div's (or not inside anything at all). Does anyone have a clue what's going on here? Thanks.

PW Source for PaperWhite uboot?

Does anyone know where I can get a copy of the source code (or even a precompiled uboot.imx) for the PaperWhite? Context: I have a defunct PaperWhite which is showing signs of a dead eMMC. On bootup, I get the dreaded "Invalid board ID!" message. It'll enter recovery mode, although it's rather unwilling to do so and will typically require multiple reboots, and I have the tooling to download and run an image (imx_usb_loader). However, I have no uboot image to run, and the various links I've foun...

Couple Qs about ARES devices

Just wondering what the track record is for this model? I know people report the Sun Spot effect if outside in direct sun. I just read about issues with the KOBO APP ? is that still a thing (because most of my books are from Kobo) There's been complaints about the Mars touch screen just dying, but how is the Ares? Really thinking about getting an Ares as my go-to eReader and Hand-written note taking (not going with an Alita word processing set up any more). So: Any Common and/or Known Issues/Bug...

Kobo Forma -vs- Likebook Ares (Mars as a runner up)

I see plenty of Forma vs Mars comparisons, but notmuch for Forma vs Ares. Having decided not to go 10" Android Tablet, I'm simply looking at upgrading my new (yup new) Kobo Libra. I think I'd like the 8 (or 7.8") size. What's keeping me from going Likebook Mars and it's cheaper price tag, is that if I'm paying more for the upgrade, and paying more than a Forma, I'd like to have the Note-taking ability found in the Ares, which besides extra onboard storage, is pretty much the only thing separatin...

Count words in whole book

Hello is there any software for epubs, where I can count words of the whole book, maybe even per chapter? A feature to count occurences? E.g. search with RegEx (then I could count spaces)? Sometimes I need to know how long I would read in a chapter or in a page. I have Moon+ and FBReader (both pro) on my Smartphone, where I normally read, but no way to do any near there, no statistics per book :( Thank,frank

How to highlight faster

I almost wrote a Feature Request thread, then I found out Windows already has it. I share it here in case you Calibre users don't know. If you feel highlighting is slow because text selection is slow, then do this when selecting text: Double click on a word, but don't release your mouse yet With your mouse still down, drag it to any direction to select the text, like you normally do You will notice it's faster, b/c you're selecting word by word, not character by character. You don't need to s...

The Internet Was A Mistake

In the never ending war against dumbass ideas, I was looking for MSDS information on oven cleaner because some yahoo in a grammarily-challenged corner of social media was recommending using it instead of pepper spray for self defense. Don't. It's a dumb idea for several reasons. People generally want to use sprays when deadly force is not obviously warranted, or in attempt to avert the necessity of using deadly force. Deadly force is defined as force that is likely to cause death or serious...

Losing a Garden

Some close friends of ours have sold their house. Well, yes, of course, they are entitled to, it’s theirs. But we are finding it very sad. How many gardeners are brave enough to create something as joyful as this? (It’s Crocosmia Lucifer) We’ve spent many happy hours in that house with them, so that it will be a sad loss to never be there again. And I love the whole thing – the furniture choices, the decoration, the details, all of it. As we’ve sat there talking, drinking, eating and so...

Nostalgic Saturday Morning...

MeTV has started playing cartoons on Saturday morning, and when I say "cartoons", I mean the original gangsta Chuck Jones Looney Tunes good stuff.  The real thing.  You don't even need to pay for it; it's beamed straight through the air to an antenna on your TV for free, paid for by commercials just like the good ol' days. They just ran The Scarlet Pumpernickel... This is what made Saturday mornings the absolute highlight of my week when I was little, the way Meet the Press and This Week...
