    Other Fiction Smith, Francis Hopkinson: The Arm-Chair at the Inn. v1. 1 Aug 2014

    Francis Hopkinson Smith (October 23, 1838 – April 7, 1915) was a United States author, artist and engineer. He built the foundation for the Statue of Liberty, wrote many famous stories and received awards for his paintings.

    Excerpt
    If I have dared to veil under a thin disguise some of the men whose talk and adventures fill these pages it is because of my profound belief that truth is infinitely more strange and infinitely more interesting than fiction. The characters around the table are all my personal friends; the incidents, each and every one, absolutely true, and the setting of the Marmouset, as well as the Inn itself, has been known to many hundreds of my readers, who have enjoyed for years the rare hospitality of its quaint and accomplished landlord.

    Bricked PW1

    Hi there,

    FOAll I know that I am not on the rigth place but I have a briked kindle PW1.
    There are new post so I ask my problem here.

    I do not know the past of it.

    Only via serial port I could reach it.

    I tried to follow this steps from szfisher:

    - attach serial cable
    - boot
    - immediately after restart enter any key to stop autoboot
    - enter "bist" and then "fastboot"
    - via fastboot tool flash data and diags partitions on PC(windows or linux), img files is here: http://snipurl.com/debrick
    - reboot
    - immediately after restart enter any key to stop autoboot
    - enter "run bootargs_diags ; bootm 0xE41000" to boot to diags
    - get login prompy (menu "D) Exit, Reboot or Disable Diags" and then "L) Exit to login prompt")
    - login as root (password:fiona2bc)
    - enter "echo 0 > /var/local/upstart/lab126_gui.restarts"
    - reboot
    - after a while, press Enter to enter Recovery Menu
    - select "E. Export FAT partition" to export U disk
    - copy update_kindle_5.3.1.bin to U disk.
    - press 1 to back Recovery Menu
    - select "U. Update using update*.bin file on FAT partition" to update root partition.
    - select "Q. quit" to boot

    I could go until step:
    enter "run bootargs_diags ; bootm 0xE41000" to boot to diags

    Then I got error message:

    uboot > bootm 0xE41000

    Straingly:

    Difference between these 2 versions of Bible

    Hello
    Is there any difference between these two editions of Bible?

    Custom column date

    I've searched for this, but can't find it. I'm sure I'm just doing something wrong.

    I created a custom column for the date I read a particular book. When I go to add the date, however, I encounter a strange problem.

    It shows "undefined" before I add a date (this is fine). If I click the arrow to bring up the calendar to add the date, I get "January 101" as the calendar heading.

    This is not a HUGE problem, I can just hit the "Set 'ReadDate' to today" button, then modify it from there. However, hitting that button is not yet automatic. What am I doing, or not doing, to make this happen? I tried changing the date format just in case, but that doesn't seem to change anything (although I did just try one alternative).

    Thanks for any insight!

     
    Edit Books: unable to enter text

    I've been using Calibre for converting books into ebooks for about a month now. Both I and my colleagues have encountered a problem that's annoying but not devastating. I'm wondering if it's our fault or Calibre's. Occasionally when we open a book for editing, Calibre will not accept any keystrokes—anything from trying to enter text in an .xhtml or .css file, or even a "command + S" keystroke to save.

    Oftentimes closing the file and re-opening it will solve the problem, but not always. Sometimes we have to close Calibre, and when that doesn't work, restart our machine.

    Has anyone else encountered this?

     
    moving calibre from "C" drive

    I originally installed calibre on the c drive on my computer. I have recently installed an NAS drive and want to move calibre to the network to free up disk space. What is the best way to do this? I copied the files to the new drive but when I update calibre it only updates the files on the c drive. I thought that there used to be a button to browse where you wanted to install calibre when you updated but either I imagined it (entirely possible lol) or it's no longer there. System is windows 7, drive is WD my cloud.
    thanks in advance for any help

     
    Helpful suggestions

    I got an email yesterday with a list of ebook suggestions for me. For a change, the suggestions were spot on, I ended up buying 4 of the 13 books suggested. I think they are ebooks that came out recently since I didn't spot those particular books when I would looking up that particular subject (the Eastern Front during WW II) a few months ago.

    I've found that Amazon recommendations can be quite spotty. Sometimes, like this one, they are right on. Other times, they are books that I might be interested in, but paper only, no ebook (I haven't bought a paper book in several years). Still other times, I don't have the slightest interest in any of the books on the list of recommendations and frankly have no idea why Amazon thinks I would be interested in them.

     
    Unnecessary Spontaneous Span Codes

    I haven't found anything on this problem in the forum, but Sigil sometimes creates unnecessary code that makes no difference in how the paragraph is rendered. More than anything, it's annoying because I want clean CSS.

    Example:

    <p>I also couldn’t hide the fact that I was living off of $40.00 per week for food and any other items I needed. Forty dollars is all that I had left each week after paying my monthly minimums on credit cards (used for medical co-pays, fees for diagnostic testing, and prescription co-pays) along with other required bills we all have (like car insurance, gas, rent). It was there, in Guam, that my friends (my budding</span> <i>) would develop the idea of putting together a fundraiser with the hope of paying off a quickly growing mountain of medical debt. The work of this group of educational consultants on my behalf led to new hope in ways I could have never imagined.</span><br /></p>

    These span styles restate the paragraph style from the stylesheet. I thought that span styles are used to interrupt the current applied style for an intentional change, not to simply restate the style for no purpose.

    However, today I found a span style that actually changed the size of the font in a paragraph which was not used anywhere in the previous or following paragraphs.

    These styles seem to appear spontaneously after I have closed and saved and then open. Can anyone shed light on this?

     
    Embedded fonts

    Out of mere curiosity, is it possible to know which fonts are embedded in an ePub/KePub file? I sometimes stumble upon some embedded fonts that I like, but I can't find a way to figure out what they are.

     
    hyperlink outside spine error

    Hello,
    I have a hand coded epub using Sigil where I want to link a set of words to an image. As an example the wording Figure 1 can be clicked to have a image appear large (as if the image was double clicked).
    Its coded as this: <a href=http://www.mobileread.com/forums/"../Images/Figure1.jpg">(Figure 1)</a> and it works as expected on the iPad I am testing. Flightcrew has no issues. When I run it through epub check I get the error - hyperlink to resource outside spine. Do I have to list them as ID's as I have seen in another thread here and if so how to I ensure they open large, I don't want them to just go to the page where they are sitting.

    I am only creating at the time for the Apple store so only worried about getting it loaded there for now. If I left as is does anyone know if it will go through?

    Thanks for guidance.

     
    Free and Bargain Children's/Kids/YA in August 2014

    I hope it's okay if I start the thread this month! :thumbsup:

    ==================================================

    We point out free and bargain Childrens/Kids and YA titles to each other, and recommend certain books that are/were free (or the opposite!).

    Because Kindle freebies are easiest to find, the majority of the books listed are from Amazon, but freebies and bargains from other retailers and in other formats are more than welcome!

    In case no retailer is specifically mentioned in a post, it is safe to assume it's for Amazon US.

    Be aware that many freebies are only free for a day, so grab them fast!
