Day Trip to Calistoga

I used to believe that the harvest season in autumn was the nicest time to visit our Northern California Wine Country but with all the wildfires in the past few years, I now prefer to spend time among the vines in the springtime instead. In late April and May we enjoy the most beautiful weather here, so yesterday I took the day off and spent the afternoon in one of my favorite little towns in Napa County: Calistoga. It was a quiet weekday so less people were around. The wineries and restaurants ...

The Quest For The Low Bore Axis: A Novel Italian Approach

A couple of years ago we had a look at a few different semiautomatic pistols pursuing the reduction of the bore height over the hand. Among several commercial models, we saw a couple of promising prototypes from different periods. While these were highly innovative, they still kept a relatively traditional configuration. What we have here […] Read More … The post The Quest For The Low Bore Axis: A Novel Italian Approach appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

ebook cover lockscreen doesn't work for sideloaded books

Hello, So I have turned on the new function to show the cover of the book I read on the lockscreen. On the lockscreen I can see the "choose something to read to see its cover here" text. All of my books are sideloaded, and the covers are not showing from them at all. I have tried with mobi and azw3 ebook formats as well. Is there any special format and/or resolution for the books and/or covers in order to show on the lockscreen? Thanks, Pete

Concealed Carry Corner: Stock vs Customized Carry Guns

One of the most interesting debates I’ve heard lately is whether to carry a stock handgun or a handgun with upgrades. There’s been more than one occasion the last few weeks where I’ve heard guys arguing the pros and cons of carrying stock or upgraded handguns. Both have their valid arguments and it’s not a […] Read More … The post Concealed Carry Corner: Stock vs Customized Carry Guns appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

PDF to EPUB strips spaces on first line of each chapter

I'm having an odd problem. I've used Calibre for hundreds of ebooks, so I'm fairly comfortable with it. I have a friend using Affinity Publisher, which won't export anything useful except a PDF. So I'm having to export a PDF, bring that PDF into Calibre, and then convert that into an EPUB. I'm having a strange problem with the very first line of every chapter. She's using drop-caps, so the first chapter of every PDF starts like this: I’ve blurred the actual text. That very first line to st...

DIY Southern front porch renovation with curb appeal

When we moved into our current lakefront home, my husband and I were so happy with the glorious windows and view from the back of the house that we kind of forgot all about the front of the house. It was fine, but just so boring. The house was painted a pale yellow color, the front door had completely the wrong look for us, and the huge front porch was a giant blank slate with no charm. This all added up to ZERO curb appeal! So when we were offered an opportunity to work with The Home Depot ...

How to display specific foreign font?

Hi Guys, I'm trying to view a file with two languages, English and Gurmukhi. I've managed to change the English part easy enough but the problem I'm having is that I seem unable to change the font being used for the Gurmukhi. I have tried to edit the book and change the embedded font but it seems to default to the same font. Is there a way I can easily choose the font for the Gurmukhi text. Any help much appreciated. Thanks, Kam
