POTD: Heckler & Koch HK416 A7 with Estonian Special Forces

The HK416 A7 is still not up on the HK website, I can only find the A5 version. That doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. For those who have been around TFB for a few years, may remember that we reported about it back in 2017 in “HK416 A7 to be called G95 by the German […] Read More … The post POTD: Heckler & Koch HK416 A7 with Estonian Special Forces appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

Plugboard destination field series_index

Is there any way to update the series index via the plugboard I see no destination field for it?

howto bring a likebook mars t80d back to life under gnu/linux?

Hi there. I have an "old" likebook mars t80d, and I have the same problem that many people had : one day, after maybe a full discharge of the battery, the e-reader froze on the booting page. Whatever I try (power, reset, etc.), it still stays with the page : Code: likebook starting up... But without any dot moving or what, the screen never refresh. So I tried to bring it back to life.

Clara HD Kobo/iOS issues - Hotspot doesn’t connect, neither does Files.

I got my Clara HD a few days ago after having a Kindle for 18 months, so I’m still working out the differences between the two. On the whole, the Kobo feels vastly better than the Kindle, but I’m damned if I can get it to connect to my iPhone’s hotspot. I’ve looked it up and seen people suggesting that the name shouldn’t have special characters, that the password should be ten characters long, but nothing has worked. The indicator on my phone goes blue for a few moments, then the Kobo fails to c...

Why lemon and citronella grasses may be just the mosquito-fighting balm you need

“About a month ago I read that lemon grass is a great deterrent for mosquitoes. Well, I have checked every big box store, called all the local nurseries and have not been able to find any. I would like to know if this plant really works against mosquitoes since we’ve had such a problem the last two years with these little ankle-biters. The thought of fragrant lemon scent is so appealing to me. Is there any chance of finding lemon grass to your knowledge or is it not in season right now? I sure h...

Mend your clothes and do yourself some good

Care and repair is an invaluable mantra for your wardrobe, your mental health, your wallet and the planetIn today’s society, many of us go through our whole lives without ever working with our hands; we live, we work, we eat, we buy, we repeat.

Ares Note 3.1.0 OTA broke font sizes in non stock apps

So I was on 3.0.4 and everything was fine but the new update came out today and looked nice, fixed a lot of bugs and added a floating nav button if you need it. But then I went to open apps like Moon Plus and all the fonts are screwed up as apparently the way they made their own reader app have more font sizing it seems was to tap into and break the rest of the font scaling in random places including any app that is expecting X font size to not be so large. I had to revert back to 3.0.1 then upd...

‘Fun Home’ author Alison Bechdel flexes new muscles in ‘Secret to Superhuman Strength’ graphic novel

Alison Bechdel was planning to go for a run following this interview, but now she wasn’t so sure that was going to happen. A storm had deposited several inches of snow outside her home in northern Vermont. “I ran in the snow all winter,” says Bechdel by phone. “but, somehow, in April, it just seems like a bit of an insult.” The cartoonist, author and 2014 MacArthur Fellowship winner says her love of physical activity drives this latest graphic memoir, “The Secret to Superhuman Strength,” which i...

Weekend Cooking: Tuesday Nights Mediterranean by Christopher Kimball

I was introduced to Christopher Kimball decades ago through the magazine Cooks Illustrated and America's Test Kitchen. When he took off on his own a few years ago, he founded the Milk Street media company, which produces television and radio shows as well as a magazine and cookbooks. I've never seen the Milk Street shows, but I have cooked out of several of their cookbooks with good success.
