Don't keep converted files?

Is there any way to tell Calibre to delete the converted version once it has been sent to a device? I've got lots of .epub files. When I send to a Kindle, they get automatically converted - that's fine, and they look great. But I don't want to keep the converted ones. I just want to keep the originals. I've checked the help file and the settings, but I'm not seeing anything that looks like it will do what I want. (I only want to keep the originals for disk space reasons - and so that I can ta...

Crazy AOC Is No Democrat Outlier

Opinion 2020 Democrats Radicals USA – -(Ammoland.com)- The main problem in American politics is not the obvious polarization but the underlying reasons for it. Partisanship, angst and divisiveness are all preferable to surrendering the culture and fundamentally transforming the republic. The Democratic Party has deceived much of the public into believing that its positions aren't extreme, but the truth is coming out now for all to see. Such veritable crackpots as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cort...

7 Daily Habits for an Organized Home with Free Printable Habit Trackers

Hello, I hope you all are having a great weekend. I’ve written many times about how my organized life is a direct result of daily habits. I have a bit of a squirrel mentality so I’m prone to getting easily distracted. Plus I tend to be on the lazy side. So I have learned over the years that what works for me is implementing daily habitual routines to keep me on track. Basically once these habits are in place I don’t really have to think about them anymore or be worried that I’ll get distracted...

JeJoue Mimi Soft

JeJoue Mimi Soft £69.99 from Toys 4 Naughty Boys Seven years ago, I reviewed the original Mimi in a short, lackluster (both in my writing skill and my opinion of the toy) review. The truth was, I always suspected my original Mimi was defective because people loved it. I mean, almost every review was a rave one, and people discussed the strength of the vibrations favorably. I thought little of mine, and while I didn’t really discuss it in my review, I was also underwhelmed with the buttons,...

Right now, there’s a lot of buzz on the internet about the dangers of smart meters. People claim that, because smart meters utilize radio frequencies, they can cause cancer, anxiety, insomnia, and other complications. These aren’t just harmless internet conspi...

Calibre reverted to freshly installed default

Don't know what happened, but I was working on my library when my computer unexpectedly powered off (didn't know it wasn't charging). When I restarted it my Calibre library had reverted to the original default gui settings. Plus it started on a library that has never been attached to Calibre. I have a synced library in my Dropbox that isn't attached, but synced using outside tools so that I can use it on Calibre Collections. It probably is synced to Calibre because I copy the db file from th...

I'm much pickier when it comes to memoirs and autobiography, though both can be found on my bookshelves.What's your favorite nonfiction?

What Cannot Be Remedied Must Be Endured: Evil Gun Control Spreading Nationwide

Opinion What Cannot Be Remedied Must Be Endured: Evil Gun Control Spreading Nationwide   USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Despite the fact that no new federal gun control legislation is likely to get through the Republican-held Senate in Washington D.C.

Here in New York our Lord and Master Andrew Cuomo has little to stand in the way of his new ...

Congress to Take Up Gun Control This Week

Opinion Congress U S Capital Building Fairfax, VA – -(Ammoland.com)- On January 8th, 2019, two bills were introduced in Congress to impose so-called “universal” background checks. The bills, H.R. 8 and S. 42, are being misleadingly described as simply requiring background checks on all sales of firearms, but this is just a small part of what these overbroad pieces of legislation would do. A hearing on this gun control legislation will take place in the Judiciary Committee of the United State...

How Do You Cut Down a Family Tree?

Monet’s Giverny – our inspiration. Don’t laugh. It’s been more than 30 years since we began converting our eight acres of cow pasture into a mini-arboretum and sculpture garden; the Hoosier Giverny. Our operating philosophy was we pretty much had no idea what the hell we were doing. Most of the stuff we planted lived anyway – even prospered. Now I have to cut some of it down. The cutting-down is painful; well beyond the current tidying-up fad authored by Marie Kondo with her “decl...
