Calibre ePubs in Books (Catalina) I use calibre to manage my library (edit metadata, update covers etc..) and to convert my books into epubs which I then load into the Books app on my Mac and then onto my iPad. Convoluted but the system works for the time being.
Since upgrading to Catalina I can no longer import the books I have converted into the Books app. The files initially appear without covers and when clicked say the cannot be opened because the book is corrupted. I can categorically say the files are not corrupted. Apple support said something about them trying to download a 32 bit application...
I am using the latest version of calibre.

Convert epup3 pages to consecutive image file(JPG,PNG...) I'm been digging around the web for sometime now trying to figure out a way to do this. Basically, I just need to dump all the pages of a Japanese novel into image files. I stumbled upon 2 problems, most converter online and offline including Calibre only extract the image folder in the Epub file I'm using and leave the rest as it is. The 2nd problem is when there's a program that actually worked, the result images are in horizontal reading mode which messed up the book really bad (The stylesheet in the original epub did have vertical reading mode right to left command). In some epub3 reader, I can read the book just fine so I just need the ouput result to be unchange.
In short, dump epub pages into images and in vertical reading mode.
Can anyone please help me with this!? Thank you.]]>

Seasons Change After ninety degree temperatures just last week, we had a few days of perfect convertible weather for a breather, and then yesterday's cold front brought the first frost of the season and the lowest overnight temperatures since April.
Woobie weather has arrived, and it's almost time to swap out the cotton socks for the wool ones and the short-sleeved tees for long-sleeve pullovers. Next thing you know it'll be long johns and warm boots weather for walking to Twenty Tap.

Buckeye Firearms Association to Raffle Off AR-15 in Response to Beto’s Gun Grab Buckeye Firearms Association to Raffle Off AR-15 in Response to Beto's Gun Grab

Ohio – -( At a recent debate, Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke responded to a question about gun control by saying, “Hell, yes, we're going to take your AR-15.”

Gun rights advocates have known for decades that bans and confiscation is the ultimate goal of gun control efforts. However, it has only been recently that it has been discussed publicly in such clear and honest terms.

“I'd like to say that the cat is out of the bag,” said Dean Rieck, Executive Director of Buckeye Firearms Association. “But we've known all along where all gun control efforts lead.

“Gun control advocates in the U.S. look to other countries where firearms have been heavily regulated, and in many cases banned. They want the same here in America despite the fact that we have a unique, enumerated right set down in the Constitution meant to defend the personal right to keep and bear arms.”

Buckeye Firearms Association intends to raffle off an AR-15 in response to Beto's provocative statement.

The raffle will go live at on Monday, Oct. 14 at 6 a.m., the day before candidates descend on Westerville, OH for the CNN / New York Times Democratic presidential debate.

The rifle is manufactured by Faxon Firearms in Cincinnati, OH, and will go through Black Wing Shooting Center in Delaware, OH, a federally-licenced firearms dealer.

“The raffle is a political statement,” said Rieck. “And it's a little tongue in cheek too. We're including things in the raffle that we know will irritate gun control advocates, but which are perfectly legal. Things like a modern sporting rifle, the most popular rifle in America with well over 8 million owned by law-abiding men and women.

“We're also including a binary trigger and so-called hi-cap magazines, also perfectly ordinary and legal. It's just our way of saying ‘Hell no' to Beto and others who don't respect our Second Amendment rights.”

Buckeye Firearms Association recently won lawsuits against the cities of Columbus, OH and Cincinnati, OH over trigger enhancers and have participated in successful legal cases that have gone to the Ohio Supreme Court and the U.S. Supreme Court.

They are also credited with bringing legal concealed carry to Ohio as well as helping to introduce Castle Doctrine, establish statewide preemption of home rule on gun regulation, and much more. They work closely with the NRA and with many Ohio sportsman organizations and the Ohio Department of Natural Resources on issues such as public range upgrades and hunting issues.

“Don't believe the talking points of gun control advocates when they say we're just a handful of gun nuts,” Rieck said. “Ohio has around 4 million gun owners. That's nearly half the adult population in the state. We're mainstream. We're ordinary people. And for those who legally carry a firearm, we're statistically the most law-abiding group you'll ever meet.

“We'll comply with the law. But we won't lay down and let ambitious politicians use us as a punching bag every time they want to score a headline and advance their career. We number in the millions. We defend our rights. And we vote.”

BATFE Drops 80% Receiver Case in California; Fears Precedent Opinion

BATFE Drops 80% Receiver Case in California; Fears Precedent BATFE Drops 80% Receiver Case in California; Fears Precedent


Arizona -( In 2014, Joseph Roh had a business that dealt in firearms parts. As part of the business, he facilitated the production of lower receivers for AR-15 type firearms, from 80% receivers, in California. In the business, he or his employees would set up the 80% receiver in a Computer Numerical Control (CNC) milling machine. Then, they required the customer to “push the green button”. BATFE believed this made the business one that was manufacturing firearms without a license. Roh was arrested in 2014. From

Through his business, ROHG Industries in La Habra, Roh allegedly started with unfinished lower receivers for AR-15-style firearms. A lower receiver is the frame of a completed firearm that holds the trigger and hammer. An unfinished lower receiver, when machined further, constitutes a firearm. Roh and his employees would finish the lower receivers by machining the devices with a computer-numerically-controlled—or CNC—machine and drill presses that Roh maintained at the La Habra warehouse.

Roh attempted to avoid the licensing requirement by requiring that each customer play a token role in the manufacturing process, which often meant merely pushing a button on a CNC machine, while company employees did the vast majority of the work.

While the sale of unfinished lower receivers is not regulated, the manufacture and sale of completed lower receivers—which are considered firearms under federal law—requires a proper license.

Additionally, Roh would, if the customer wanted, assemble the rest of the firearm by adding an upper receiver, a barrel, and other necessary parts to the lower receiver. Roh has agreed to surrender tomorrow and be arraigned on the indictment tomorrow afternoon in United States District Court.

Joseph Roh had assets. He hired a competent attorney,  Gregory Nicolaysen. reports Nicolaysen grilled ATF officials on what the definition of a firearm is, according to their regulations.

The judge ruled BATFE had not followed proper procedures when they created the regulations, and the definition of what was a firearm was unconstitutionally vague.

According to, BATFE officials agreed to a plea deal to stop the judges ruling from having any legal effect. A plea deal would not require the judge to make a ruling; the tentative ruling would not become a part of the case. From

At issue in Roh’s case was whether the law could fairly be interpreted to apply to just the lower receiver of the AR-15, as the ATF has been doing for decades.

To rule otherwise “would sweep aside more than 50 years of the ATF’s regulation of AR-15s and other semiautomatic firearms,” prosecutors wrote prior to the judge’s order.

Federal law enforcement officials — and members of Congress — have been on notice about a potential problem with the language in federal gun law as applied to AR-15s since at least 2016.

In July of that year, prosecutors in Northern California abandoned a case against a convicted felon named Alejandro Jimenez after a judge found that the AR-15 lower receiver he was accused of purchasing in an ATF undercover sting did not meet the definition of a receiver under the law.

The ruling and subsequent dismissal drew little notice but prompted a letter to Congress from then-US Attorney General Loretta Lynch. She advised lawmakers that the judge’s decision was not suitable for appeal and that if ATF officials believed the definition should be changed, they should pursue regulatory or administrative action.

BATFE's sloppy rule making and lack of oversight may be catching up to them. While they avoided a legally binding ruling in this case, the facts are now widely known. Any attorney or person charged with illegally making an AR-15 would be justified in using the same defense used by Joseph Roh.

The ruling is *not* about the Second Amendment, nor is it about the right to make your own firearms, which logically is part of the Second Amendment. It is about BATFE's sloppy procedures and vague rulings which have not been subject to proper oversight.

This ruling will have little effect on gun owners, at least immediately. However, there are numerous other rulings that may be subject to the same analysis and scrutiny.

I suspect ongoing court cases about what constitutes a suppressor are incentivizing the BATFE to be cautious in prosecuting people on dubious “silencer” cases.

Whether the Gun Control Act of 1968 had a positive or negative effect on crime is controversial.

Immediately after the law was passed, crime and murder rates skyrocketed. In 1968 the murder rate was 7.3 per 100,000 population and rising.  In 1980 it peaked at 10.1.  The murder rate  did not come down to 1968 levels  until 1997 (6.8 per 100,000 population) in the United States. By that time the concealed carry revolution was well underway.

There are over 400 million firearms in private hands in the United States. Prior to 1968, there was very little regulation of firearms. People could order semi-automatic anti-tank guns and anti-aircraft guns and ammunition through the mail.

Prior to 1968, there was very little regulation of firearms. People could order semi-automatic anti-tank guns and anti-aircraft guns and ammunition through the mail.

Only one crime was recorded with these weapons; a pair of them were stolen from a dealer and used to blast a hole in a vault. No one was injured in the crime.

There is no serious evidence gun control laws impact the crime rate. Crime rates in Europe were not affected when European countries enacted their gun control laws.

If the Gun Control Act of 1968 were repealed today, the crime rate would not be affected a measurable amount.

Gun control laws have always been more about political control than about public safety.

The story is set in London, where a vengeful serial killer is at work; not revenge for harm done to himself, but to others, by criminals who seem to be above the law.
Scotland Yard investigates, in an action packed yarn, the Yard pursuing the unknown serial killer, and what happens when they finally unmask him. There is of course a beautiful girl. Oh, and an anaconda...

Alexmisu/Shutterstock

Are you thinking about starting up smarthome? Great! But don’t jump directly in without a plan. That’s how you end up making common smarthome beginner mistakes. Instead, before buying anything, you should ask yourself a few common-sense questions.

What Changes Can You Make to Your Home?

Creating a smarthome involves varying levels of installing new tech. Some gadgets, like smart plugs and voice assistant speakers, are as simple as plugging the device into an outlet. Others entail making a physical change to your home, like changing the locks or doorbells.

But depending on your home situation, you may not be able to make those changes. If you rent, for instance, you may not be allowed to change the locks without permission. In some cases, the answer might always be no.

In other instances, installing tech may call for a particular expertise. Are you comfortable with electrical work? What about working with the plumbing of your home? If you aren’t, that limits you from installing devices that are wired directly into your home or connected to your pipes.  You would have to pay a professional to complete the install, which adds to price.

What Do You Want to Accomplish? A Nest Hub, wireless charger, lamp with smart bulb, and kindle. Do you want smart lights you can control by voice? Josh Hendrickson

Once you know what kind of changes you can make, it’s time to ask yourself what you want to accomplish. These days, manufacturers seem willing to slap a radio on nearly anything just to call it smart and sell it to you. For that reason alone, there are all kinds of smarthome devices you should avoid.

But to figure out which ones are right for you, you should have a good idea of what you want your smarthome to do for you. If your chief concern is cutting back on power usage, then smart bulbs, plugs, and a thermostat is your starting point.

On the other hand, if security is your goal, you’ll want to invest in smart locks, video doorbells, and other cameras. Smarthomes technology can meet a variety of needs and desires, and in most cases, they even solve more than one problem. But start simple. Pick one goal to accomplish and go after that first. Then expand.

Do You Want to Do it Yourself?

We often focus on do-it-yourself smarthome tech at How-To Geek, but you don’t have to do it yourself. Various companies like Control4 and Savant offer customized smarthome systems you can purchase. Typically you’ll buy a centralized hub (sometimes a traditional smarthome hub, but more often a full computer like a Mac Mini) and a series of devices like smart plugs, bulbs, and even smart shades for your home.
