Kunai Pen

I came up with this idea at work and sketched it out. I was at first trying my idea out to see if it would work with other techniques because I doubted my sculpting skills. But then I broke down I used clay after the 2nd failed attempt to make the "blade" out of something other then clay. But once I made it with clay I was very suprised! It actually worked and looks like an actual sized Kunai from "Naruto"/"Boruto"! Look out cosplay world! This is your future! [Author: Kinhime Dragon]

When gaining help means losing control

A guest post by Linda McGivern Here goes—though I really don’t want to admit it because you’ll hate me: I have a gardener. At my winter home in the Caribbean. There. Now that’s out of the way, let the ranting begin. I am sure we who love gardening can agree that when it comes to our landscapes, there is a certain level of, shall we say, control that we like to exert over our plant dominions. Having someone else come in to do one’s garden work not only disrupts the finely tuned supervised coming...

Kobo Nia scard image request

Hi all, I accidentally corrupted the sdcard on my Kobo Nia. Unfortunately I don't have a full backup. I tried reconstructing the partitions with the correct offsets and a copy of the recovery partition I still had but it doesn't restore. Would anyone be willing to share a copy of the rootfs and recovery partitions? (I noted my Serial Number and I can hex edit it back in to location 0x200.) I would really appreciate any help.

Catalog download to Kobo Reader on connect does not overwrite the book on the device

I never noticed this on my Kindle, but it appears that when the catalog is downloaded to the Kobo it doesn't overwrite what's on the device already. I see the job run when the device connects to download it and the job is successful. But when I open the catalog on the device again I'm right in the same place and the data isn't updated. If I manually remove the catalog before connecting, then I get the updated version to the device. I can't see any option anywhere that determines if/when books ge...

Copy unique files from source library into target library

I have two libraries. I'd like to copy files unique to the second library into the first library. The solution I've seen is to add the books from the second library to the first, setting up rules to control the adding process and then using a plug-in to find duplicates. My question is whether a plug-in exists to do something like the inverse: find unique files in the second library, which I can then look over, since errors will be inevitable, and import after that. Thank you, and apologies if ...
