But what if it's both?

Saw this on social media today. It is, of course, nonsense. It's part of the same artificial American pop culture dichotomy that insisted people are "jocks" or "nerds" or "preps" or whatever in high school.  John Hughes movies are not real life. Erase that nonsense from your mental map and let yourself be a well-rounded human being. I'm interested in hit points and horsepower, photojournalist and parajumper, Special Forces and science fiction. Don't play that divisive game. This ain...

Is Rob Pincus Anti-Gun? Let’s Ask Him! ~ VIDEO

U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- First, let me be clear that I believe that all gun control is an infringement on our God-given rights. The only gun law I think we need is “shall not be infringed.” Some people don’t have a line in the sand that they are not willing to cross. I am not one of those people. I have a very clear line in the sand, and I am right up against it. Not one more inch! Not one more concession! These statements are not just me spewing rhetoric. It is something I believe in with ev...

Made it home!

Wheels down safely in Indianapolis. My email inbox is probably a disaster area, my luggage is still in the car, and my office chair feels like it's doing ten over, but all this can be sorted out. Bobbi and the cats were glad to see me and Holden let me pick him up and cuddle him. I've done a lot of peopleing over the last couple days, and even though it was with my favorite people on the planet, this is still a thing... [Author: Tam]

Always Be Learning

John and Vicki Farnam at TacCon 2021 John and Vicki are legends in the training industry. Defense Training International was one of the first of the traveling training programs and they're still out there doing their thing. All weekend at TacCon I saw John and Vicki either on the line in other instructors' classes or standing back and observing. This is a good sign in my book. . [Author: Tam]

Help with Deciding if I should buy a pocketbook

On some other threads in this forum, I have been trying to find a device which will work well with Sinhala text. With the kindle I got only as far as looking at the text in the pages, but the table of content doesn't show properly as seen on https://ibb.co/pWwd11D. Others tried with the Kobo as mentioned at https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh....php?p=4104409 but also wasn't too successful. I would like to know if the pocketbook (especially Touch Lux 5) is able to show the text in the book a...

Got the feel for it.

An occasional point of disagreement between my ex and I was whether or not it was possible to discern that one particular tire was low or not. I said that of course it was, based on certain handling signals, as well as feedback from bumps that spanned the width of the car's track. He insisted it was not, because he was sure he'd read about some test where NASCAR drivers couldn't.Driving home from Cincy today, the right-hand tires felt a little soft over bumps and handling was a little greasy in ...

Is Freehold New Jersey Withholding Firearms Freedoms? ~ VIDEO

Freehold New Jersey Township Mayor and Council 2021 New Jersey – -(AmmoLand.com)-  Shortly after the 23rd of February 2021 a youtube video with audio-only started to circulate in the New Jersey firearm-related social media pages.  In the video, an impassioned, and a to-the-point speech was delivered to the Freehold New Jersey town council by a citizen that has been waiting on the sidelines for the town to approve his Firearm Identification Card application. In the state of New Jersey, one mus...

No 'sleeping' screen w/ v2021.03 update

Just installed v2021.03 on my Kobo Glo, aka Kobo_kraken. When I put it to sleep with the power switch the screen no longer darkens nor does the 'sleeping' box appear. The Kobo does seem to be in sleep mode since all taps are ignored. Toggling the power switch awakens it. New feature?

Error files on library

I don't know why many "files" keep popping up in my library. If I try to open them they will load forever and not show anything. I haven't sent any file to my cloud, they just appear out of nowhere. If I delete them they quickly reappear. I don't know the technical term for it that's why I couldnt find any related thread. Below is how they look: Attachment 186241 How to get rid of them?

K4 Mac or PC K4Mac and Amazon Drive (Personal documents)

I know this is a common topic but searching the forum, most of the topics are pretty old. I know K4Mac doesn't show personal documents and ALL the books on my Kindle Voyage are emailed as personal docs. However, I googled some old tip about possibly using Amazon drive as a hack. Except (of fvcking course Amazon!) K4Mac creates its own "My Kindle content" folder in whatever folder I point it at instead of using the empty root folder or Amazon drive's "My Send-to-Kindle Docs". Has anyone manag...

Embedded Fonts on DOCX -- Calibre partially fails, any automated fix?

I'm not sure if it's Word's fault or Calibre's, but here's the problem: if you embed a font in Word (only TrueType and OpenType TrueType fonts are embeddable, not PostScript fonts), then save it as a DOCX, then do a DOCX -> EPUB conversion in Calibre, the font name WILL HAVE SPACES (100% of the time), which makes the EPUB unusable through many outlets. Even if the font name and font file don't have any spaces, Calibre or Word adds spaces, a hyphen, and the word Regular (or Bold, Italic, or Bold...

“Back in the Burbs” is self-care in the form of laughter

The world is a little overwhelming these days (understatement of the year, right?) and sometimes we just need to kick back, chill out, and as a wise songwriter once sang, forget about life for a while. Oh, and laugh. More laughing please! PLEASE. One way to do all of the above: grab a copy of […]

The incredible true story that inspired Kaitlyn Greenidge’s new Civil War-era novel ‘Libertie’

When Kaitlyn Greenidge learned about Susan Smith McKinney Steward, the third Black woman to earn a medical degree in America, she was working at a historical site in Brooklyn that seeks to preserve the daily lives of free Blacks in the 19th century. While Greenidge was inspired by McKinney Steward’s incredible life to write a novel, her focus at the museum on honoring ordinary people — rather than history-making trailblazers and pioneers — shaped the book’s attention to the details of everyday l...

Deleted metadata.db; how to quickly restore the library?

I screwed up my library while uninstalling x86 version and installing x64 version. The metadata.db was deleted, but the folder containing all the (many many) subfolders with the books is still there and well sorted. What's the best way to recreate the metadata.db file (so, the Calibre library) without having to manually add all the books contained in the (many many) subfolders?

Issues with Note 3 NeoReader After 3.1 Update

Hi all, I just upgraded to the latest firmware for my Boox Note 3. However, I noticed an issue with the NeoReader. It seems like NeoReader is no longer able to adapt the font family correctly to EPUB files. Before the upgrade, when I choose a font family, it will always display regular texts when it's regular and italics when it's italics no matter which font I chose within a font family. After the upgrade, however, when I choose italics, it will convert the entire book into italics. If I ch...

Which firmware on latest orders from amazon?

Hi there, So my kindle updated to 5.13.4 a couple of weeks ago, and I'm desperate to try kindle break. I ordered a KOA3 from amazon this morning, but have just noticed that the 5.13.4 update was released in December (I thought it had only been a few weeks). I will probably cancel the order - I hate not having the book cover for the screen 'saver', but I like pretty much everything else about my current KOA3. The important bit of my post: Can anyone tell me which firmware was on their recently or...

Autoconverting when copying to device

I have Calibre set up to autoconvert EPUBs to AZW3 when uploading to my Kindle. However, this means that each book I've selected is converted and then uploaded separately. The conversion takes a few seconds, the upload takes less than a second, and then it takes about 30 seconds to upload the metadata. If I have 20 books, it tales about 10 minutes altogether. what I now do is to convert the books (a few seconds each) and then upload (a few seconds for 20 books, followed by about 40 seconds to u...
