Much Learning Occurred.

This was such a well-rounded two-day class. It can be a bit of a drink from the firehose, but there's a lot of material that's not covered by yet another five-round drill from the seven yard line. Identifying and interacting with suspicious-looking (or -acting) strangers. Deselection, avoiding getting entangled in unwanted conversations. How to carry...and when and how to use...pepper spray. There's basic trauma self-care stuff, things like telling the difference between arterial and venous...

Screen Sharing between Kindle Dx and Mac?

I found instructions here: https://tinyapps.org/docs/e-ink-monitor.html But I can't get it to work. I'm not quite sure why. When I type up the commands and connect the Kindle to my computer, there's nothing on either side to show an option for screen sharing. If it depends on shift-VU at some point, I don't know where, and I don't have the coordination for that command. I was trying to MacOS's built-in screen sharing options instead of installing additional screen sharing software for it.

Democrats Working Hard To Shred America’s Social Compact & The U.S. Constitution

USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- We are watching a small group shredding the Social Compact that Americans have with their elected government. In our compact, the U.S. government promises us protection from physical harm, both foreign and domestic, and protection of our inalienable rights. We may have given up some sovereignty to live our rightful lives while attempting to pursue happiness. But remember, the powers of our government are DERIVED FROM OUR CONSENT, and we may, at any time, alter this comp...

Decreased saturation on image only in ebook-viewer

For some reason, on this specific eBook I'm having trouble with the cover rendering with decreased saturation in ebook-viewer and ebook-editor's preview pane. I'm not sure why.

The Latest Unavoidable Editorial Notice

Periodically bloggers call a 30-second time out to step out of their virtual bodies and observe. Here we go again.The consciously-stated guiding principles here (staying on topic, avoiding making myself part of the story, and overall continence in rate of production) have been stetched over the years, and they're being stretched to the breaking point now. Where to go from here? On the topical front, it no longer seems constructive (or even possible) for every post to relate directly/explicitly t...

Calibre not responding

First of all, I really love Calibre. I found an old collection of EBooks and the ease of sorting out, correcting meta, deleting unwanted titles and generally playing librarian really soothes the autistic part of my mind. Since a couple of weeks the program became unresponsive. Please find the steps already taken below. Could you please help me out? I've been at it for days and I don't seem to be making any progress. Calibre really calmed me and I was so happy using it, I would love to fix this...

Weekend Reading 4.25.21

This month I gave myself new gifts in the form of self care: extra sleep and green juice. As often as possible, I’ve allow myself to sleep until I wake up naturally with no alarm and it’s the best feeling. I’ve also added green juice to my diet for the last month and my cells just feel cleaner. I like the Amazing Grass products which you can buy at Sprouts or Whole Foods, and also this powdered green juice. I drink half a packet in the morning with a glass of water and the second half in the aft...

import covers along with text files

I have a large collection of text files that I want to import into Calibre. I have no issues using the RegEx to bring in the files and metadata that I want to capture from the file names. I subsequently convert them all to epub format. My challenge is the covers. I have a file with the cover for each of the books, but I can't find a way to automatically set the cover from a picture. Currently, the picture is the same name as the text file. Is there any way to accomplish this via an impor...

Der Leuchter der Lady Dreabram. Er steht vor mir, der Leuchter der Lady Viktoria Dreabram, die eines so rätselhaften Todes starb. Er steht vor mir und ruft mir alle Einzelheiten unseres damaligen Abenteuers in Allahabad ins Gedächtnis zurück. Es ist ein wundervolles Erzeugnis altindischer Goldschmiedekunst. Die schlanken Linien des in Schleier gehüllten Körpers der indischen Tänzerin, deren hochgereckte Arme die Lichthülle in Form eines goldenen Tellers halten, drücken ein ungezügeltes Temper...

Die Ganges-Piraten. Wir hatten es eng zusammengefaltet in dem Innern eines hohlen Diamantkäfers gefunden, der wieder in einer eiförmigen Öffnung eines altindischen, eine Tänzerin darstellenden Leuchters verborgen gewesen war. Die seltsame Geschichte dieses Unglücksleuchters habe ich im vorigen Band erzählt. Lord Dreabram hatte ihn aus einer kleinen, in den Kaimur-Bergen liegenden Moschee, von deren Existenz nur die Familie Mohammed ben Gondar etwas wußte, geraubt. Jetzt waren Leuchter, Käfer ...

Gardening startups like Neverland want to make every day Earth Day for the home gardener

Vera Kutsenko and Hayley Leibson have incredible tech pedigrees, but their latest venture involves as much digging in dirt as it does digging through lines of code. The two women have founded Neverland, a startup for the home gardener that aims to be a marketplace connecting mom and pop gardening shops with the explosion of amateur horticulturalists that have sprung up since the pandemic began and everyone needed someone (or something) to talk to. Gardening businesses were among the big winners ...

Wir saßen jetzt zu dreien auf dem Achterdeck in bequemen Korbsesseln: Harst, Kapitän Banfy und ich, Haralds Privatsekretär und Freund. Soeben hatte ein Boot einen Brief für Harst gebracht.

How ‘Murderbot Diaries’ author Martha Wells overcame a career in crisis to create the killer series

There was a time before Martha Wells created Murderbot, the character that narrates her award-winning science fiction series “The Murderbot Diaries,” when she thought her career might be dead. After a successful start in the ‘90s, things had cooled down by the mid-2000s. When the final book in her “Fall of Ile-Rien” trilogy was published without fanfare, the soft-spoken Texan wondered if that was it for her. “I was kind of at that point in my career where, you know, women writers my age were sup...

10 science-fiction and fantasy books and authors Murderbot creator Martha Wells recommends

Science fiction and fantasy author Martha Wells, whose “Murderbot Diaries” series has been nominated for multiple Nebula and Hugo awards, says she found her way to these kinds of stories when she was a child wandering through a branch of her local public library. Missing a turn for the children’s section, she ended up in the adult sci-fi and fantasy books. These days, however, no wrong turns are required because there’s so much great work to read and recommend right now. “People have said that t...

CSS not correctly applied after shutdown and reopening

Hi guys, When I shutdown my Kobo Forma, start it again, and reopen the .epub I was reading, line-height property adjusted by the slider isn't properly applied (see by yourselves, two attached pictures showing what happens). I don't find any long-term solution, considering I already removed any line-height property of the book by conversion (double-checked the book stylesheet, no line-height property remaining). I did find a temporary solution, which is touching anything on the Kobo slider, fo...

Die Büchse der Pandora. Black Town, das Eingeborenenviertel Bombays. Enge Gassen, wunderliche Holz- und Steinhäuser, zahllose Kinder aller farbigen Menschenrassen; dazwischen Hunde, zahme Affen, Ziegen, Schafe, hin und wieder ein hochbepacktes Lastkamel. An jeder Straßenecke hockt ein Bettler, ein Schlangenbeschwörer oder ein schmutzstarrender Yogi. In den Basargassen sitzen die Handwerker vor ihren Häusern hinter den Tischen, die ihre fertigen Waren tragen. Bombay ist die nördliche Pforte I...
