Can We Rollback The Last Directory Import?

I just pointed calibre at the top dir of dir tree that I knew had some epub and pdf books in it I wanted. Big mistake. It is currently importing some 4000 'books' it tells me. Don't know what they are yet but for sure they're not books. Maybe 'inf' files and maybe files without extension... I don't know. But I'd say at least 3900 of them are a mistake. That's going to be a hell of a job identifying them from the file list in Calibre and deleting them. Is there any way I can 'rollback' this t...

Bright and Beautiful Flower Lady

I just LOVE her! I don’t use purple very much in my artwork, but a few years ago I got a BIG bag of fabric scraps from someone who makes beautiful cashmere coats. There were beautiful rich jewel tones that I probably wouldn’t buy but once I had them in my hands, I got inspired. She has little yellow slippers. The weather has been nice enough that we brought the chairs out onto the porch. Let Spring begin!

Book: Generation X

Generation X: Tales for an Accelerated Culture is weekend reading for anyone who wants to understand me and my generation. I was born in 1965 – right at the beginning of the transition from “Boomers” to “Xers.” I’m glad my parents had me in 1965 instead of 1964, where I’d spend my life arguing (maybe with myself) that I’m not a boomer. A millennial friend of mine didn’t know anything about Generation X, so I sent her a copy of the book. I suppose I was teasing her too much about being a mi...

Taiwan-based Mao Shen Chiang considers himself “a concrete connoisseur and an architect/artist,” as well as an ardent admirer of Scandinavian furniture, which he sells at his Mori/Casa showrooms.
