    The Science & Theology of Salt in Scripture (STOSS)

    Turns out that the Bible is an advanced and cutting-edge science book. I make the claim that "salt" in Scripture is referring to the salt of DNA. I also make the claim that "dust" is also referring to DNA. DNA is both salt and dust of the earth. In The Science & Theology of Salt in Scripture, I go about proving beyond a reasonable doubt that my interpretation is correct. Furthermore, in Volumes I and II, I reveal 34 mysteries of science (some only recently being uncovered) that have been planted by God in the Bible for millennia. These mysteries concern YOU and how you were physically created ... right down to the molecular and quantum level.

    My books are marketed by my company, STOSS Books. Website is My blog is located at the same website. A universal link is located on the sales page of this site. It will take you to a separate site that lists all of the stores carrying my book. Click on the desired store icon, and you will be taken to that company's sales page for my book.

    Conveting huge PDF to EPUB, what should I expect?

    Hi folks,
    I'm currently running a converting job on 1400 page high-quality PDF with lots of pictures. The file is 260MBs.
    I ran the file before and it went for about 800 minutes before I stopped it because I thought it was bugged or something. Then I read that large files can take hours to convert and as long as I do not get errors the program is working. So I ran it again and it has been 530 minutes so far. Calibre currently takes 15% of my CPU and 2GB of RAM.
    What should I expect? Anyone converted something like that? How long did it take?
    I've been using the program for 2 days now and converted a few 50-80MBs books. All took less than a minute to complete except a 30MB one that took 40 mins. File size doesn't seem to have any direct effect.
    By the way, can I somehow direct CPU power towards Calibre to speed up the process? I'm already using the 64-bit version.

    "Copy to Library" = export & import book?


    I'm using 2 libraries, one for initial import of the book and "fixing" metadata. The other is the "real" "clean" library I use to connect with devices etc.

    At the moment, I do export books into a folder and then import into "real" library in order to make sure all metadata is actually written into the ebook files itself.

    Is "copy to library" doing the same? Or is there another workflow that is more efficient than ex- and then import?

    How to send books to Aura One so font settings always work


    I just converted back to the world of epubs after a foray into Mobi land. Everything is working fine but I still get the same problem I used to have on my old Sony 300. Some side loaded books resist any effort of the Aura to change the font and/or line spacing. Font resizing seems to always work though.

    Is there a setting I should be using in Calibre or Kobo Utilities to send the book a certain way? I'm not sure if there's a "CSS" type file that is getting locked in and setting the font for me and whether there is a way I can override it to ensure I can use all my device's reader settings properly.

    Downloading Amazon Purchases At Once?

    Couldn't find this is search so sorry if it's already been asked.

    I want to download my ebooks from my Amazon account and I was wondering if anyone has found a way to do it at once? Batch download? I've a LOT of bough books because of the freebies and classics and don't feel like taking three hours going through years and years of purchases and clicking one at a time.

    Android app to create Mobipocket(?) file please?

    I plan to repurpose my old Kindle 4 to show lyrics in my band. I'll need to make files for the Kindle, and the most convenient method for me would be on my mobile then email the file to the Kindle.

    Am I correct in thinking the file format I need to make is Mobipocket to be compatible with such an old eReader?

    Can anyone recommend an Android app for this?

    Repurposing old Kindle eReader gen4 ?

    I have an old Kindle eReader model D01100 that I don't really use, and would like to repurpose it for use with my band. I would like to display lyrics on it, and have a foot switch to turn the page.

    Is there any way I could do this?

    The only thing I can come up with would be building something that taps into the switches on the side, soldering onto the board. I'd rather avoid this if I can.

    After update server doesn't show covers?

    Content server doesn't show covers anymore? Anyway to fix this?
    I got a lot of book, and would like to see their covers when on the server.

    Tolino - USB Connection problems


    my Tolino has developed some nasty habbits, most annoying is, that he doesn't want to be connected via USB anymore... I either get 3 nameless USB devices, none of which seems to work, or the windows error message "USB device not recognized".

    I tried switching ports, restarting (Computer/Toline), searching for updates (none there, seems to be current), but currently the Tolino is stubborn. Anyone got an idea there?

    iPad errors connecting to the web-UI

    Current versions of Firefox and Chrome work as expected. When we try to connect to the standard http://<server-ip>:8080/ URL from an iPad, we get two styles of error.

    The first says "TypeError: Attempted to assign to readonly property. Error at <server URL & port>:8844:26".

    The second says "NotFoundError: DOM IDBDatabase Exception 8: An operation failed because the requested database object could not be found. Error at <server URL & port>:9372:44".

    --series= not working


    This is driving me crazy.

    I'm moving my calibre from a Mac mini to a Qnap NAS running QTP 4.3.3. Since there is no calibre for QTP, I'm using a docker for the installation (I tried several containers, but all end up with the same problem).

    The thing is I have a cron job that runs twice a day that checks if new magazines are in the set folder and import them, like this:

    calibredb add --with-library=/library --duplicates --recurse --series="Magazines" --authors="Magazine" /_AutoDownloads/_Magazines/

    This used to work on my old Mac mini. But now I get the files imported, but not tagged. The --series and --author are just ignored.

    As I said, I tried with several docker containers, which run different versions of calibre. As of now my calibredb --version is:

    calibredb (calibre 3.4)

    My container is this one aptalca/docker-rdp-calibre/. But as I said, I tried different containers and get the same result, so I'm guessing it's a linux thing, not a calibre thing.

    Any ideas?


    Can I move books from Marvin on my iPad to Calibre on my Macbook?

    Having trouble with my Calibre Library and just want to know if it all crashes, how can I move my books back from my Marvin iPad to a new install for Calibre on my Macbook? Thanks..

    What is pathway for Calibre Library on Mac

    Getting great suggestions about my Calibre Library thinking it is is DropBox problem. But I am much more basic than that. Many posts I've searched talked about "pointing" to a library. What does that mean for me as a Mac user and how do I find out what my current path is? Thanks...

    Can't run Calibre

    For the past couple days, I have been trying to run Calibre. However, I keep getting an error message. I don't know if I was able to run the latest version of Calibre before, as it has been a while since I last tried to access it. Can anyone help me figure out why I am having problems? Do I need to use an earlier version? Here is the error log I receive: calibre, version 3.4.0 ERROR: Startup error: There was an error during calibre startup. Parts of calibre may not function.
