Action Vance, Louis Joseph: Red Masquerade, v1

Subtitle: "Being the Story of the Lone Wolf's Daughter." Based on the script Louis Joseph Vance wrote for Columbia pictures in 1919, and filmed as "The Lone Wolf's Daughter". Vance later rewrote his script into novel form and it was published in 1921. It opens with a lengthy flashback to the Lone Wolf's younger days, and his encounters with a rival criminal and an aristocratic "adventuress", and then leaps to the present day (ie 1921) to the second encounter with the arch-rival, and his first ...

5 books you must read in December 2018

Winner of the Man Booker Prize, “Milkman” by Anna Burns is a stream-of-consciousness tale of a young protagonist (referred to only as “middle sister”) who attempts to navigate her way through gossip and political intrigue in 1970s Belfast at the height of The Troubles. Milkman of the title is actually a terrorist who stalks the narrator, sparking unfounded rumors. Timely and provocative; not to miss. In the satirical novel “Radiant Shimmering Light,” author Sarah Selecky holds up a mirror to soc...

Programmatically adding custom columns

What is the interface to add custom columns? (stand-alone program run via "calibre-debug") Background: I'm trying to programmatically prepare and populate a full library and I have several non-standard info to handle. If I understand it correctly I can stick arbitrary data to Metadata instances before I call "db.add_books(my_list)", but, in order for this to work the custom columns should already exist. I would like to avoid creating them manually in the UI. TiA!

So, when they gave me a sling in the ER after I broke my collarbone back in May, I figured I was going to be the best sling patient ever. When they gave me a better one at the orthopedics clinic, I strapped that thing down tight and even slept in it.When I finally got to the ortho doc and told him this on my four week visit, all beaming with pride, he looked pained. Nobody had told me that after the first few weeks I was only supposed to wear it when I was out of the house, to keep people from b...

Buy 6"+ Epub Reader with Page Turn Keys

My mom lost her Sony reader and I need to find a replacement. I was going to get her a Forma for Christmas but after reading the reviews, decided to pass. - Must have physical page touch keys as the time I upgraded her to a touch screen she complained that it turned too many pages at a time. - Must be at least 6" as she uses huge fonts - Must be easy to use and problem free. She is in her 80's and not tech savvy (still hasn't learned how to get messages off her cell phone lol). - Decent ...

New To Max 2

I'm new to Max 2. I've tried to learn as much as I can by reading this and other forums. I'd like some advice about buying accessories please. 1. Can I recharge the Max 2 using a powerbank and what kind should I buy? (Ideally I'd like to find a portable UPS that can power a mini PC as well as the Max 2 while on the move but that combination seems very difficult to find.) 2. I'd like to use the internet away from home and thought about buying a mobile wifi device but could I connect the Max 2 t...

Ebook/Audiobook Subscription services

I've noticed that there is little discussion of these services here. That surprises me as I would have thought more would be using them. For me with the poor selection of ebook/audiobooks from my local library, and my reading habits of reading/listening to 10+ books a month, they are very valuable. Here are the ones I've tried or am using. Amazon Prime - One of the benefits is First Reads. Each month they offer a selection of 6 books, you can select one of them for free. Amazon Kindle Unlimi...

Weekend Reading

I’m off to get my Christmas tree today and start decking my halls. I used to go all out with the Christmas decorating and host a big Christmas party, but these days I simply decorate my mantel, the tree, and hang some garland on the staircase. It’s simple and just festive enough, and less work to take down in January. :) The social events of the season have begun. Tomorrow a friend of mine is hosting a wreath making party, and next week I’m hosting an ornament exchange. On top of that there are ...

parse_index for a jpg link as an article url

Hi, I went into a problem when using parse_index. Some website's sections are just pictures, which are .jpg links(like https://www.irishtimes.com/polopoly_fs/1.3520128.1528206115!/image/image.jpg_gen/derivatives/box_620_330/image.jpg ) rather than normal html web pages. So if I still use list of articles dictionary like {'url',jpg_url} will fail because it's not a html tree to parse. How can I work around this issue? Thanks!

How to force shutdown a Kobo?

This is a question, because I have not found an answer. Apparently the only non-violent way to force shutdown a Kobo is to hold down the power button for a long time. However, Vlasovsoft's reader hung up on me and this reader (and/or Kobo Start Menu) somehow prevents force shutdown by holding down the power button. Other than taking the device apart and remove the battery, does someone know a way?

Lrf to AZW3?

I used to use my Sony prs 505 a lot more than I do now. The frontlight on my Paperwhite is necessary for reading in my dimly-lit house. I used to convert to old lrf files to mobi. Can I convert them to AZW3 in order to use custom fonts? Or should I do a work-round via epub? There won't be an issue with DRM. Thanks.

Skeleton CSS

Try as I might, though, I haven't been able to find one. Can anyone point me to such a thing? I'm looking for a minimal approach - maybe a hundred lines of code, max. I don't care if not every eventuality is catered for, in fact I'd see working under the constraints of something so simple to be a good discipline. I would be looking for someth...

Toy makers tap into what kids really want: 'Unrolling is the new unboxing'

Ok, I'm not just sharing these "Cutetitos" for the sake of sharing them. I'm sharing them because I've just learned that toy makers have figured out that young kids really like unboxing videos and they have now found a way to replicate that experience with "mystery toys" (like these plushies wrapped up a burrito).  The Atlantic [emphasis and some links mine]: "Enter the L.O.L. Surprise! doll, a sphere the size of a bocce ball that consists of seven layers of packaging. Kids peel away the layers ...
