Who Should Be The Next Executive Vice President of the NRA?

Opinion Editors Note: To be clear AmmoLand News has no knowledge that Wayne Lapierre is about to leave his position as NRA EVP and none of the individuals mentioned in this article have been consulted or expressed any interest in being the next NRA EVP. This series of articles is just a candid discussion of the cold reality that one day we will have a change in leadership. If the pattern we have seen since 1986 holds, Wayne LaPierre could be replaced as Executive Vice President of the NRA by N...

Wierd things connecting to Dropbox

I've been using CC for a long time with no problems. I always connect to my Calibre library on Dropbox, and it has always connected directly. But just now, when I pressed "connect", it had me log on to Dropbox. I entered my login info, and then I got a strange dialog that seems to be from or related to Arkose Labs. It spoke a number, asking me to enter that number. I didn't know what it was, so I dismissed it, and tried logging in using Google instead. But that didn't work, because after t...

Ereaders compatible with USB OTG Keyboard?

I want to see if I can find something to take notes on. After some searching I found stuff like KindleBerry, some older nooks, and onyx. Are there other options that work easily through USB otg? Preferably doesn't need too much effort to make it work with a keyboard, like getting a raspberryPi, or soldering. Cheaper the better. Also does having android as the OS automatically also enable USB otg because it has the right drivers and/or kernels?

Best case for H2O2

Hi everyone, I'm looking for case recommendations for the H2O2. I want something that adds extra protection and is functional. The Kobo-made cases seem to focus more on the auto sleep/wake function and don't mention how much extra protection you get. I dropped my first H2O2 without a cover on it from a small height and that was the end of it. I want to make sure my next case is better protected. Anything outside of protection is a welcome bonus. I am located in Australia, so if you have lo...

copy text in brackets to margins?

I am converting an EPUB to PDF. The text has line numbers within it, enclosed in square brackets. Here is an example: numbers must rather [35] be what Plato used to say, and there must be a first ... the other hand one supposes this, many impossible results, as we have said, follow. But either this or the other must be [1083b1] the case, so that Is it possible, while doing the conversion, to get Calibre to make a copy of the line numbers, and place these numbers in the margins. So to best ap...

Max2 lost USB transfert File

Hello, I lost the transfert file through USB on my Max2 ! It was properly working and I could find the USB options while developing the upper bar. By mistake I clicked on "Charge only" and since then I can't find anymore the USB options (when cable connected or re-connected of course). I restarted the Max2 and my PC ; but when I connect the Max2, only the charge led is lit, the PC does no more detect the Max2, and I have no USB options. Any idea on how to recover these USB options ? Than...

Book covers not loading properly on Kobo Forma

I just bought a Kobo Forma and love it. I use Calibre to side load a lot of my books. The covers do not load properly on a lot of the books. They are either very small or not there at all. This is not a problem when loading them to my nook. I would really love a solution to this problem. Any thoughts?

Clara HD Slippery Clara HD

So I've had my Kobo Clara HD for a couple of weeks now and I'm loving the small form factor and light weight. I'm going without a cover because I want something that will easily slip into a pocket and adding a cover would add half the weight again (at least) of the e-reader. I do find however that the back of the reader is quite slippery, especially in these dry winter months. Any good solutions for this? Maybe some kind of skin on the back or some kind of grip tape?

Socialist Math

Art by Michael Ramirez Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez USA –-(Ammoland.com)- Socialist Math.Ocasio-Cortez who minored in economics tweeted , “$21T in Pentagon accounting errors. Medicare for All costs ~$32T. That means 66% of Medicare for All could have been funded already by the Pentagon.”The comparison is specious. In fact, the data suggests that the Pentagon hasn’t spent $21 trillion in the entire history of the United States.This is what you're left with when the best people no longer run for el...

I want to create a virtual library of books that I have not read yet, including those that are partially read but not those that are finished. I have been playing around with various search expressions but am stuck. I have the Kobo Utilities plugin that I use for my Kobo and when syncing to my reader it fills in the 'Reading Status' and the 'Kobo Read Percentage' columns.

Weekend Cooking: Gift Guide for Food-Loving Readers

As we finish up Hanukkah and head into Christmas (the perils of the dual-religion family), I find myself relying heavily on tried-and-true dinners and less on experimentation. For example, this last week we had beans and rice, chicken parm, quinoa Buddha bowls, and grilled salmon. All tasty and all family favorites, but not necessarily good fodder for blogging or for sharing on Weekend Cooking. I suspect that you too are saving your culinary energy for holiday meals and Christmas cookies, so t...
