Google service changes

For those of you who feel that you have a good grasp on Google's services such as Gmail: 50 illuminating questions about Google's latest messaging service shakeup If this doesn't confuse you, you can then check into Google's own announcements. At this point, I would say that not only does the right hand not know what the left hand is doing, neither of them know what they are doing.

The Coming Economic Collapse and The Rise Of Digital Coins

This book is for the average person as well as new or seasoned investors. Take a look at the world around you. Financial mania is everywhere. Stocks, crypto coins, real estate. People are in an investing frenzy and think that the party will never end. But it will. Sooner, and more suddenly, than many people realize. The symptoms around us are eerily similar to 2008, 1929, and various other points in history. We all know what's coming. An economic crash and the transition to digital curr...

Max limit problem outta nowhere???

For a couple of days, I had no problem sending news to my kindle. In fact, I had been sending Business Insider and The Economist together for a while. However, although I'm having no problem with the latter, whenever I try to send Business Insider which is much smaller than The Economist and certainly much smaller than any book I can easily send, I get an error message. I tried to remove Business Insider from the auto-send list and added again nothing changed. Any help would so be :help:apprec...

USB connection dead

My brand new Nova 3 Color stopped being recognized by a computer over USB link less than 2 weeks after I received it.

I have found other people having reported USB connection problem with Boox devices, has anybody experienced instability as well, has one found a solution? I have tried factory reset and enabling and disabling USB debugging and changing default USB mode in developer options (using thir...

Weekend Cooking: 9 New Food and Cooking Books

Hello, my friends. Hope that all has been well with you. I'm still cooking and reviewing, but needed a little break. In today's post, I want to share with you a bunch of food-related books I have on my list to examine more closely. I haven't fully read or cooked from any of them yet, so the following thoughts are gleaned from a combination of skimming through the text, marking dishes I'd like to try, reading bits here and there, and (in some cases) actually trying a recipe. I'll let you know wh...

"Get Books" Doesn't Find Books

In Calibre 5.19 (64 bit) on Windows 10 Pro (64 bit), Get Books doesn't necessarily find books where I know they exist. For instance, I just tried looking for a title of "project hail mary" (no quotes) by author "weir" (no quotes). Earlier today, the only match that showed up was for Google. I tried it again just now and at least Amazon is getting a match. But, nowhere else. Here are the existing product pages on: Amazon ebooks Kobo All three of those sites are configured and checked in ...

Bogus Adobe Digital Editions DRM Demand on a Sideloaded Book

I have an epub that I copied to my Kobo using Calibre. At one point I was able to read it, but now when I try to go back and read it again (to access the notes I took while reading it), I get an error message indicating it's encrypted with Adobe Digital Editions DRM when that is most definitely not the case. (It's an epub created from a Google doc). There's no apostrophe in the title so I don't think the problem mentioned on the wiki is the issue here: https://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/Kob...h...

Cybervetting in hiring: the hunt for moral performances

Cybervetting refers to the use of online information such as Facebook posts, LinkedIn profiles, and Google searches to evaluate job candidates. In roughly 7 out of 10 workplaces in the US, human resource (HR) professionals and other individuals involved in hiring use cybervetting to get to “know a person” beyond information provided on a resume. But what are cybervetters really attempting to learn, what inferences do they make, and what does any of this have to do with how a candidate will perfo...

Arch Chair by Douglas and Bec Snelling via Fábrica de Imaginación

The move of this website to the other hosting company took much more time than I anticipated, because I did’nt seem able to get the link structure as it used to be: “chairblog.eu/year/month/day/postname. After migrating the site I got a mere cairblo.eu/postnumber…..very bad for the Google ranking Chairblog has built up over all those years. When I finally succeeded to get it right after more than a week puzzling and partly sleepless nights, you can imagine I was a bit euforic and ready to go...

Cloud readers with support for 9,000+ page PDFs

Hi, I was excited to import my Calibre entry, the ARM reference manual G.a, into a cloud reader so I can sync bookmarks across devices. However, I am unable to open this book on many PDF reader applications. On iPad, the book permanently corrupts Files, preventing closing the book or accessing the rest of my data. https://developer.arm.com/documentation/ddi0487/latest/ The only workaround I have found to fix Files after opening the poison book, is to have the good fortune of other documents avai...

Kibano reader

https://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/Kibano_digireader I couldn't find a place to talk about it. I bought it because I initially liked it. It is very light in weight. It is a pleasure to read the screen. It has a card slot, I put a 32GB card on it, I have books, audio,.... It has an internet browser that I tested with a searck on Google and it worked perfectly. But when I got home I searched Wikipedia and I was disappointed. Unable to access Wikipedia.. My older Kindel 3G Keyboard could do th...

Extremely Long Conversion PDF -> EPUB

I'm in the process of adding a trilogy to Calibre for conversion to EPUB. The problem is no single site had all 3 books: I got #3 from Project Gutenberg, #1 is from Kindle, and #2 is from Google Play. The Project Gutenberg PDF converted just fine, the Kindle one should convert without a problem, but I'm having a problem with the Google Play PDF. First I had to delete about 25 blank and other unnecessary pages from the PDF, then I imported it into Calibre and started conversion. After about 20 m...

Great e-Ink optimized browser, EinkBro

Just found this really nice browser to use with my Max 3. I was using Firefox Lite, but this looks even better from the POV of being lightweight and has the advantage that it's optimized for e-Ink devices. https://github.com/plateaukao/browser Normally, it should be available from the app store, but it was just suspended recently according to the author: "Google suspended my release this weekend, saying that the App should not ask users to download app from unknown resource.

Exquisite Watercolors of Demons, Magic & Signs: Behold the Compendium Of Demonology and Magic from 1775

Noli me tangere, says the title page of the Compendium of Demonology and Magic: “Do not touch me.” For the book’s target audience, one suspects, this was more enticement than warning. Written in Latin (its full title is Compendium rarissimum totius Artis Magicae sistematisatae per celeberrimos Artis hujus Magistros) and German, the book purports to come from the year 1057. In fact it’s been dated as more than 700 years younger, though to most 21st-century beholders a book from around 1775 carri...

Taking stock of the future of work, mid-pandemic

This past month marked an anniversary like no other. On 11 March 2020, the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a pandemic and with it, normal life of eating out, commuting to work, and seeing grandparents came to a sudden halt. One year later, my new book about the intersection of psychology and the workplace was published. With wide-scale vaccinations on the rise, I thought it would be a good time to take stock of where we are and just how much has changed.Even before the pandemic, majo...

The Power of Names: Why generic labels disrespect horticulture and the plant-buying public

By C.L. Fornari Sparky, a Sato, wonders why he’s being asked to sit next to a Hydrangea, tentatively identified as a H. macrophylla ‘Sandy Summer’  I went to the grocery store recently, and when I checked out, my cart contained the food I needed and a Hydrangea that I didn’t. The store was filled with living plants and cut flowers before Easter, and this particular shrub called to me. I justified the purchase by saying that it would be nice in the background for an upcoming virtual talk I was ...

Safe places for Russian and Ukrainian ebooks?

I don't speak either language, and can only read a little of either. But sources in both languages can be important for my research. In the past, I've ordered some books in hard copy, and ordered others via Google Books. But a lot of potentially useful sources appear elsewhere but not on Google Books. Anyone had good or bad experiences with direct orders from Litres? How about bookclub.ua?

Rolling Legos

Someone sent me an IM this morning wondering if I'd be able to identify a particular Volkswagen. It wasn't a Volkswagen, though, but rather one of the innumerable kit cars based on the Beetle platform. Like the Beetle, the Citroen 2CV was based on a chassis that was basically a self-contained motive platform and the bodywork can be easily replaced with whatever. This caused me to wonder if the Deux Chevaux is as popular for kit cars as the Beetle. A trip to Google did not leave me empty-handed...

Endnotes are not working even though they are working on iOS & macOS

So, I made an epub, validated it and everything works fine. Now, I sent it to my Google Play Books to make sure it works, and it does. However, the endnotes links are broken on the endnote page. So, when I click a superscript, it shows a popup (the direction is wrong in the popup.) If I click on "Show on the page" it takes me to the endnotes page. Which is correct. However, when I click on the same superscript to take me back to where I was, it does not do anything. Any idea how different Goog...
