TFB Review: Zaffiri Precision Glock 43 Slide and SRC Micro Red Dot

Thanks to my friend Jason for clueing me into Zaffiri Precision. They have been making their own custom slides and barrels for Glocks and last year branched out to SIG slides. Well, I got their ZPS.2-G43 slide and barrel to upgrade my Glock 43.

Best way to auto-download high-res images? Plugin?

Hi, I have several books that need proper covers and metadata. I'd rather not have to do it manually. When I pull metadata one-by-one, I get high-res photos. When I do a multi-file metadata pull, I get small, low-res photos. The other data seems almost identical. What can I do to get the high-res photos in a bulk metadata pull? I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. I've had this issue for awhile now. Is there a particular plugin that would help with this? I'm looking over several but don't...

The Swampfox Trihawk – Small Optic With A Wide FOV

The Swampfox Trihawk – Small Optic With A Wide FOV U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- I have a thing for prism optics. Is it a bias from my days as a Marine? Likely so, but I think prism optics get a bad rap on the modern carbine. LPVOs rule, I get it, but you have to give prisms consideration. There are lots out there, and one worthy of your attention is the Swampfox TriHawk. Swampfox is relatively new to the optics realm but seems to be doing an outstanding job producing optics that fulfill a wide va...

Winchester 1886 Highly Finished Pattern Gun – VIDEO

USA – -(Ammoland.com)- Engraved, inlaid, carved, and embellished arms are some of the most eye-catching and highly collectible pieces on the market, regardless of maker. That said, Winchester rifles exhibiting these qualities always seem to rise to the top, making them the blue-chip investments of the collectible gun world. It’s been that way for decades, and contemporary sales prices indicate that this isn’t going to change any time soon. Winchester catalog from 1897 Collectors and engra...

Android via USB file times

Something might possibly be up with Calibre's mtp driver... I'm using Calibre v5.15 on a Win10 PC and connect to my Android devices via USB. (Regional formats and system codepage of the PC are set to german, in case it makes any difference. Win10 and all Android devices' firmwares are up to date.) I'm connecting my Android devices via USB for calibre's 'send to device' function. I had problems with all three them not showing the Date in Device View for quite some time, an issue that was disc...

And Then There Were ?… The future of the book club here

A time of reckoning has come. The lit club will celebrate ten years (!) of existence in May 2021, and that may also be our last month. There is the question of participation; while we have several who still post their thoughts or contribute here and there, we currently only have two who regularly nominate, vote, read and discuss selections each month. While some may think an even higher number is necessary, I feel that at least three regulars who nominate, vote and discuss each month seem to be ...

CALIBRE TO IPAD - WITHOUT "SEND TO DEVICE"

Hi, So I have a very big library of books (currently 1.744), which I have in calibre, changed the titles (all in capitalize), authors (first name then last name), genre (in a custom genre column) and tags (same as in genre column because for some reason they won't show when converting) and covers... all to my liking... and it's perfect and beautiful... The thing is since I have an old ipad (2012 Ipad 3rd Gen) which doesn't allow for any software updates anymore (last iOS is 9.3.6) and my cable...

5 Surprisingly Creative Ideas for Using Alcohol Inks

Alcohol inks are dye-based paints with bright colors that are often used to create free-flowing textures. They can be used on their own in mixed media projects like printing and stamping, jewelry design, fabric dyeing, and brightening up everyday products. Since many markers use dye-based alcohol inks, you can be familiar with the tones and colors after using them. Alcohol inks, on the other hand, are more versatile than markers because they can be used to cover a variety of surfaces ot...

Literary The Readers' Room by Antoine Laurain

'When the manuscript of a debut crime novel arrives at a Parisian publishing house, everyone in the readers’ room is convinced it’s something special. And the committee for France’s highest literary honour, the Prix Goncourt, agrees. But when the shortlist is announced, there’s a problem for editor Violaine Lepage: she has no idea of the author’s identity. As the police begin to investigate a series of murders strangely reminiscent of those recounted in the book, Violaine is not the only one lo...

Tolino partitions

Can someone enlighten me as to how the partitions on a Tolino work? I sideload apps (love it!) and the space available is very small (dang), but I can see there are still over 5 GB free on it when I connect it to the computer. I'd love to make room for more apps. Is it possible to get rid of some stuff or change the partitions without installing everything again?
