Relax, it’s just weather

Where would we be if we couldn’t complain incessantly about the weather? Such whining is harmless, as it has zero effect, and it’s fun. I do it all the time. I love the four seasons, but I don’t like being cold. I was taken aback recently, however, by the major weather-related freakouts that occurred when Western New York experienced an April snowfall. This is a regular occurrence. Indeed, May snowfalls are not unheard of. Well. Gardeners throughout the region took to social media, where they e...

Issues with touch screen on a KOA3, jailbroken with firmware 5.13.3

Hi everyone! I received a kindle oasis two days ago. And for these couple of days I've notificied issues with the touch screen. One time I tried to change pages and it kept moving more than one page, at one time I tried to open the light settings and it didn't respond when I tapped in the icon, and just now I wanted to open a definition and it changed page instead, I had to try like 5 times for it to work correctly. I was thinking that maybe it's a bug on that firmware? Thanks in advance for all...

Why I Never Finished My Dissertation

I love poetry. When it’s well done, it distills life down to its clearest essence–the quality of the afternoon light, the taste of cold plums, the sound of a wood duck on a pond. It pulls us out of our hectic, clamoring lives for a minute, and gives us a view onto what’s important. In […]

"huge" book

I have an epub that I can read on my desktop using the Calibre reader, but I can't read it on either my e-reader (kobo) or on my desktop via the ADE reader. In both those cases, it opens and just freezes. I looked at the epub contents using the Calibre editor and I see the entire book is in one html file, whereas normally there would be a seperate html file for each chapter. I'm guessing that the reader is freezing because the file is just too large. I was thinking the only way to fix this w...

Possibility to download from Kobo Plus

Hi there, Not sure if this thread can be made here, please ignore if not possible. Kobo Plus has just been launched in my country, so now we have the possibility to subscribe ebooks from Kobo; it also seems to work offline, that is, after selecting the book, wifi doesn't need to be on. My question is: has anyone successfully tried to "download" those books? So a sort of "sideload" from Kobo to the PC? If wifi is not required after fetching the book from kobo store, I guess the ebook must be st...
