    Other Fiction Bradbury, Osgood: Female Depravity. v1. 27 Sep 2016

    Osgood Bradbury: Born ??: died 1931

    Excerpt
    IT was a bitter cold night, and the December winds swept through the streets of the city, making the watchmen button their overcoats tighter about their bodies and driving them under the shelter of the buildings that stood upon their beats. The heavens were draped in cold grey clouds, and occasionally a flake of snow would be driven by the wind against the face of the pedestrian who was seeking his lodgings after a day of severe toil and labor. The wind increased as the evening wore away, and the flakes of snow came faster and thicker, borne along by the fury of a Northeaster.

    calibre in auto full screen mode

    When I launch Calibre it automatically puts itself in a full screen mode, preventing me from accessing any other apps, my desktop or anything. I can't even access anything else by holding down command etc
    I'm on a Mac, El Capitan. I'm sure this is a simple fix but don't know what to do and I can't use Calibre until it's sorted.
    Anyone have an answer pls?

    Troubleshooting Kindle device download hang / Kindle App download failure

    This is a repost of my reply to an older thread (last post Dec 2015). The Forum software suggested that I begin a new thread because of the age of the previous thread, and I expect that many other people may want to have this information. The other thread has already been viewed over 15K times.

    I have a Kindle Paperwhite and the Kindle App on my Lenovo 10" tablet. I don't know if the problem described below is specific to these devices, but I doubt it.
    What does not work:
    1. Downloading any purchased book, no matter when it was purchased, even if the book cost $0.00. Books appear in the library but the status cycles between Queued and Downloading - 0% on the Kindle. On the Android app, I get an error that the download has failed.
    What does work:
    1. Accessing the Kindle Store (so the network does work!)
    2. Buying a book on the Kindle. I did not try the Android app.
    3. Downloading a PDF document that I have sent to the device by email.
    4. Downloading a book to my PC for transfer to a device via USB.
    5. Transferring to the Kindle or Android via USB. The book is then accessible in the library.
    6. Reading on the PC in online Reader (Chrome browser).
    7. Pinning a book in the online PC Reader for offline reading.

    So my current workaround is to download books to my PC and then transfer them via USB to the Kindle or the Android app. Instructions for how to do this are probably on the Amazon site, or they will send instructions in email.

    The status as described by Amazon in a chat today, after 3 days/5+ hours of phone calls and chats:
    06:28 AM PDT Harinandan: I truly understand your concern. I checked and see that many of our customers are facing the same issue and our technical team is already aware of this issue and they currently working to fix the issue as soon as possible.
    06:31 AM PDT Harinandan: Yes, you are right. It appears to be the problem with our servers and we are actively working to fix the issue as soon as possible.

    I hope this helps.

    Osgood Bradbury: Born ??: died 1931

    Excerpt
    Several years have elapsed since I formed a resolution to write out the most important events, and give to the world some of the scenes in my life; but circumstances have prevented me from carrying out that resolution until the present time. And I would not now begin such a task if I were not fully convinced that the execution of it would benefit my own sex and shed some light on the paths in which they may travel while sojourning on this earth. The great poet of nature hath said, 'The web of our life is of mingled yarn, good and ill together; our virtues would be proud if our faults whipped them not; and our crimes would despair, if they were not cherished by our virtues.' Be that as it may, I have lived out a large proportion of the time allotted me in this world, and must pack up and prepare to leave these earthly scenes ere many moons shall wax and wane.

    Warning Attribute 'lang' is not declared, docx to epub, with FlightCrew

    Hi!

    This is my first post here. I read the stickies, don't think I need to attach files, searched but didn't find a similar case.

    My problem is that when converting with Calibre (2.68 64-bit) from Word 2016 docx (Windows 7 64-bit) to epub, I get warnings on FlightCrew 0.72 of the kind "attribute 'lang' is not declared for element html (or i, or p)".

    The warning does not affect the usability of the epub. However, the two biggest e-bookstores in the Finnish market, Elisa Kirja and iTunes, seem to have a similar validation system, so the warnings have to be fixed. I have been able to do that manually.

    Here is a what the second line of index_split_000.html reads like:

    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" lang="fi" xml:lang="fi">

    Not understanding code very much, I have by trial and error learned that, in Calibre Edit mode, removing the part lang="fi" will make the warning go away.

    Using the Find/Replace tool, in All text files mode, it has been quite easy to remove all the unwished lang="fi". But the recent conversion job had quotes in many other languages, leading to lang="de" etc. causing extra work and human error risk.

    So, my questions and notes are:

    1) Is there a switch or button in Calibre that I have missed, which could fix the mini-problem?

    2) The "blame" probably lies at Microsoft ;) as always, but if someone knows if there is a setting in Word 2016 that "kills" the wrong type of language marking, I'm happy to learn that instead.

    3) Regarding the new multi-language issue vs. just one language (Finnish): I probably should, in Word 2016, select Ctrl-A and force everything to one language. So that's another workaround.

    Finally, a huge thanks to Kovid Goyal and everyone helping with developing Calibre. I made a donation when I started using it, and will make another one if this issue proceeds.
