New Install with MOBI Files Only....How Do I Do It??

Hey all. I had a bad crash of my drive and had to install a new one. The only thing I have is a folder with all the MOBI files for the books I had on my previous drive. I never did export any data or anything else, just a folder with a bunch of MOBI files. I haven’t installed Calibre yet as I am waiting to find out how to get my books back and in place. Can you all tell me how to get all my MOBI files into Calibre like I had them before the hard drive failure where all the covers and i...

Saved by the Bag

When we arrived back at John's place at 0mygawd30 in the morning on Tuesday, I went to move my car in the driveway in case anyone needed to go someplace in the morning before I came up for air. Problem was, the keys to the Zed Drei were in my suitcase in the cargo compartment of the SUV. So we opened the tailgate with the remote switch... (You know how airline pilots have a canned warning about how the luggage in the overhead bins may have shifted during flight? Yeah, this is going to be li...

Fake Night mode

This is a little KUAL extension that leverages the method on this thread to allow a sort of fake night mode on non-PW Kindles (i.e. ones where night mode is not supported). As it uses fbdepth and fbink, it requires USBNet installed. Caveats:I've tested this only on my KT4, I'm not really sure how it'll behave on other models - worse case scenario, if it breaks horribly, like the screen blanks out, freezes, or doesn't seem to respond to touches, you may need to force reboot your Kindle; When in n...

TFB Review: Pulsar Helion 2 XP50 PRO Thermal Monocular

A friend of mine has a thermal spotter which he bought a few years ago. He was looking for an upgrade, and as he heard I had Pulsar’s brand new Helion 2 XP50 PRO he came by to have a look.

PW3 possessed

My PW3 has been acting up lately. It is running firmware 5.8.9.0.1 and I jailbroke it as soon as I got it. I've been running KUAL and KOReader on it for a few years and suddenly one day I started it up and all my EPUBs disappeared. After a bit of fussing, I managed to reload KUAL and Koreader and everything worked for a few days but I was noticing that the battery was running low. It turns out that it was turning on randomly with full backlight and the power button had sudddenly become super se...

Tennessee on the Brink of Strong Constitutional Carry

Tennessee on the Brink of Strong Constitutional Carry, iStock-884202954 U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- Tennessee is on the brink of passing a strong Constitutional Carry bill. HB0786 originally relied on the requirements needed for an advanced carry permit in Tennessee. The requirement made the bill somewhat unclear. The Tennessee Senate amended the bill to change the “advanced carry permit” section to a requirement the person be 21 years of age or more, with exceptions for people who served in the...

Gun Control Fails Violently – Democrats Call for More Gun Control

Gun Control Fails Violently – Democrats Call for More Gun Control IMG: iStock-496689884 U.S.A.– -(AmmoLand.com)- We saw two horrific examples of mass murder in the last few weeks. As usual, the initial news reports were wildly wrong. The initial reports claimed the attacks were by racist white men using assault weapons. They were wrong, but the false report served the political ends of the mass media and the politicians. The news reports deliberately failed to mention how the existing 20 thou...

How to get TUN driver working on Kobo Clara HD?

Hey everyone. I would like to use a wireguard VPN on my Kobo Clara HD using wireguard-go. Running wireguard-go gives the following error: Code: Failed to create TUN device: no such file or directory My understanding is that the tun kernel module is missing and now I'm wondering how to get it.

Paying Homage to Collard Greens

As much as I’ve written and talked about my beloved kales, I recently realized how much I’ve slighted the equally delicious and possibly even more talented collard greens. Maybe collards can’t deliver the same pizzazz as those beautiful kales, but they are by no means a homely or undeserving plant. They also deserve more respect in the garden just because they are so nutritious and healthful. Collards are considered to be nutrient dense, which means that you’ll be ...

Kobo Forma keeps going to start of book every time I open it.

I'm reading a book and I'm on page 50, but every time I turn off my Kobo and come back later, it goes back to the beginning of the book. This is the second book that happened. I finished one which I had to keep remembering which page to return. I convert my books on Calibre so they're all kepub formats. My Kobo had an update recently but it was fine, I use an older version of Calibre because the latest one make duplicates of every book I download, so I wonder what could be the problem with it.

Leafy Greens take Center Stage in the Fall Garden

There’s often a fashion show of sorts here to highlight my fall gardens because it is such a special time when things are lush and green with very little effort required to be spent on tasks such as weeding, watering, or even issues related to insect control. In the past I’ve posted an Autumn Photo Line-Up, Fall Garden Revue, and even an Extreme Makeover post to showcase the joys of a fall vegetable garden. This time around the stage is set to spotlight the leafy g...

micro usb is a pain in the posterior

So I bought this brand new computer for $14 but it only has a micro usb connector (which I was going to plug a keyboard into but later ended up not needing to). I did buy a cable with usb c on one end and micro usb on the other but I also bought a 4 pack of usb c to micro usb adapters. They're fairly handy; I have a charger next to my bed and the cable has a usb c connector on its end and now I can just keep a c to micro adapter nearby and use the same cable for the kobo as well.

When smart phones can do that as well? I can understand when readers prefer the dedicated ebook reader eliminate distractions because of the unavailability of email and the internet.:chinscratch: However the dedicated ebook reader is something additional to carry and something to worry about getting smashed or lost.

Hello, I'd like to buy a Bookeen Diva HD, but I want to restrict Internet access (for children).
