Rollback RX or Acronis ?

I seemed to have my problem solved 


My problem was the DRM protection, not the format:


I no longer has such problem.

-apologies accepted, of course.
Here is another way of answering:

"Here you are: [attachurl=#]"

Do NOT select "Get plugins to enhance calibre" as this is reserved for 'official' calibre plugins, instead select "Change calibre behavior" to go to Calibre's Preferences page.  Under "Advanced" click on the Plugins button. Use the "Load plugin from file" button to select the plugin's zip file (DeDRM_plugin.zip) and click the "Add" button. Click "Yes" in the the "Are you sure?" dialog. Click OK in the "Success" dialog.

You read a long text. You need to scroll in the text - and then you need to return. But now it seems the line has left the page! Where is it?
You need TextMarker Go!

I have come to like TextMarker Go. Remembering Ctrl+Shift+F9 and F2, makes it so much easier to temporary leave the paragraph you're reading in a long text and later on instantly come back to the very same line.

A short while I have had a similar problem, where Windows' various personal settings kept disappearing, because I didn't reboot Windows. After reboot, everything was okay.

http://filemarker.net/ but a little expensive.
Now there is a free version.

-you're right, I forgot there is a free version. http://filemarker.net/file-marker-free.php. I use Pro.

-thank you, Cuffy, what an excellent link!   Thmbsup  


I re-installed epubor, and successfully removed the DRM-protection!  thumbs up

But I have not yet been able to convert the same, huge .prc file. The ebook converters epubor and Calibre are both using too much RAM in an unpatiently way...; they freeze to death before there is enough memory available. I guess 225MB is quite a job. Do I really have to buy a new computer, in order to convert this ebook into a more useful format?

At http://ebook.online-convert.com/ I can convert the file for a mere $5. Cheaper than a new PC.
111  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Calibre 2 is out on: August 25, 2014, 10:40:37 AM
Calibre version 2 has only been able to convert my small books, not any of my larger but still normal sized books, before failing, due to memory error.

oh, I didn't see this post at first, before posting my above answer.

why not just download the individual titles you actually want to read from Project Gutenberg or other free sources?

-may very well be necessary, but then a hundred will be reduced to a handful...
114  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Calibre 2 is out on: August 24, 2014, 04:18:21 PM
-sorry, I should of course have made it clear that "classics.prc" means "classics = more than 80 years old" => no copyright.


The link (http://bayfiles.net/file/...Z/Nweufd/tools_v6.0.9.zip) leads to an 440KB exe! Is it a downloader of the real thing, or will it destroy my pc and leave me bankrupted? Or does one really have to pay for a Premium account, in order to download the money-saving anti-drm extension? The problem could maybe be my browser not allowing some important popup telling me what I should have done.

Here is what my safety program thinks of the exe file:

The epubor ebook converter is a whopping $46 - it will need a huge discount, before I would jump that wagon!

further modified:
The "buy"-link inside the converter gave these prices: 1 year: $36. Lifetime: $55


Unfortunately I was quick acting, but not quick thinking. At first launch, the epubor converter said something about having found some drm protected files, and asked me something. I couldn't imagine it was asking if I wanted to convert some of them for free, so my finger clicked Yes before I had understood the question - and the converter immediately converted two files. But because I not yet had understood anything, it was the "wrong" two files, the first, small files, not the big one! How stupid I feel right now.

115  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Calibre 2 is out on: August 24, 2014, 02:59:38 AM
but it still won't convert this DRM-protected book of mine :-(

The book (classics.prc) is at least 6 years old by now, but still I need Mobipocket Reader, to read it. This annoys me, because the book's content is 219MB text only, which really should be divided into a hundred booklets. Furthermore,  Mobi seems to never be updated.

How can I convert this dinosaur?

I'm trying to find page-size of PDF's - PDFInfo shows the page size in points** - I found very little info in the Xpdf page - do you know if this can be changed to metric (or anything else) within PDFInfoGUI ?

-meanwhile, "Open with..." > IrfanView > "Ctrl+R" will tell the informations you want. Just treat the pdf file as a picture:


I mean, you don't have to actually resize the file, just read the informations ;-)

Why didn't I know about this application? I'm really surprised I haven't seen it before, it is right up my alley! The simplicity, the spot-on-target, the high quality, the easy use while still very useful. I am impressed!

Well done, Renegade, really well done!  thumbs up

Should there be another version that doesn't rename, but maybe creates a subfolder?  undecided  I know I would go for such a version, because right now I will have to rename the transcoded files.

The normal listed price is $50, so at merely $20 (via sharewareonsale) I think the brand new Ashampoo Photo Commander 12 is well worth the price right now. I use it myself, especially to adjust horizontal misalignments.



-but of course "lifetime" is not the lifetime of the Photo Commander series, but the lifetime of 'your' version 12.

-did you maybe go without the extension? Of course the site can never be as fast as the much simpler original, but with the extension, I thought it was almost fast. I have removed it, because I like the old look.
120  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / WikiWand=Wikipedia, but with a modern interface on: August 14, 2014, 05:37:44 PM
WikiWand = Wikipedia, But With A Modern Interface

http://www.techsupportale...edia-modern-interface.htm :
Quote from: techsupportalert
Wikiwand (www.wikiwand.com) is a web site which skins the standard Wikipedia content with a much more modern and professional look and feel.  Instead of browsing the online encyclopaedia via the normal wikipedia.org address, use www.wikiwand.com instead.  You get the same content, but with a much better presentation (as you can see from the screen shot below).


There's also a free browser add-in which, the makers claim, allow pages to load around 3 times faster.  But even without the add-in, Wikiwand certainly does do a great job of bringing an internet institution up to date.  And because of all Wikipedia's content is freely licenced, there are no legal issues over copyright.

The extension will per default not install in Pale Moon (=Firefox 24="too old"), but if you force it to install, it will work just fine with PaleMoon as well. We are not too old.


I find it interesting that Wikipedia is not visited - the WikiWand add-on will re-direct the user to the WikiWand site which is simply a mirror of Wikipedia - but with just one click the user can go to the same article in Wikipedia.

modified: Argh, I forgot a central part, didn't I:

An important point of the extension is that every time there is a wikipedia link in Google's search result, the add-on will automatically redirect you to the WikiWand site. Otherwise the procedure would of course be too slow.
121  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Firefox Extensions: Your favorite or most useful on: August 12, 2014, 04:50:07 PM
I am very grateful for the mirror-userscript "site". It is merely a static picture from the beginning of June 2014, but it is so much better than no userscripts at all. I am especially pleased with KarmaDecay "Reverse image search of Reddit".

Back to what this thread is about. Here is my newest list from Pale Moon 24.5 > Add-ons Manager > Extension List Dumper:

((as time is passing, more and more addons are said to be outdated. However, if you begin with installing Nightly Tester Tool (from https://addons.mozilla.or...don/nightly-tester-tools/ ) and click "force compatibility", all will be well; the old addons are not too old! The biggest problem may be the growing number of abandoned homepages that I have not (yet) replaced with the equivalent Mozilla link))

It is working fine, but because Download Statusbar not has been updated for 2½ years, I have now replaced it with been testing the more advanced Download Status Bar, https://addons.mozilla.or...addon/download-status-bar. I'll stay with the abandoned for a while.

is this the same as sigverif?

Quote from: support.microsoft.com/kb/308514
Verify Unsigned Device Drivers

    Click Start, click Run, type sigverif, and then click OK.
    Click Advanced.
    Click Look for other files that are not digitally signed.

    In the Look in this folder box, type x:\Windows\system32\drivers, where x is the letter of the drive where Windows is installed.
    On the Logging tab, make sure the Save the file signature verification results to a log file check box is selected, and then click OK.
    Click Start.

    NOTE: The log file is named Sigverif.txt, and it is saved in the Windows folder. Third-party drivers that are unsigned are displayed as "Not signed." Use the drivers in this list as your troubleshooting starting point.


The article was about XP, but I can confirm that I have sigverif on Win 7 as well.

Quote from: Zen Magnets
Buckyballs settled their lawsuit months ago. And news of Magnicube's settlement comes today. They're both out of the fight.
Quote from: Zen Magnets
We're at a critical crossroads between two options.

Behind Door #1: Shutdown & Stop-sales.
This makes the most sense from a business perspective. We exit the business as soon as possible with as much as possible, at the recommendation of nearly every lawyer and consultant we've talked to. We comply. We recall. The unique "Warnings don't work" argument goes unchallenged in court. Nobody else stands in the way of the magnet ban rule-making. The CPSC sets the precedent of dodging the most public objection the agency has ever received for any single action item. The CPSC wins it's gamble.

Behind Door #2: All-In for the Conscience.
Fight. Because how others treat you is their Karma, but how you react is your Karma. Because the beauty and wonder that magnets generate is worth a rescue effort. Magnet spheres work exactly as they are supposed to, and nearly everybody (over 99.99%) is able to use them safely. Statistical polls show consumers would rather see a ban of tobacco, than an all-ages nation-wide non-consensual market removal of magnet sets used for art and education. We can sleep without regret, knowing that as the last company standing, Zen Magnets fought for what was right: democracy, reason, liberty, and beautiful shiny magnets.

Nothing rational lies in between these two options, as costs and cortisol levels only go up from here on.


Take this as official notice that Zen Magnets LLC is going All-in, and taking "Door #2" as described. We will not settle for any sort of stop-sale of magnets that are perfectly safe when not misused. The hearing is set for December, and we will see that this influential case goes to trial.

We vow to continue this legal, awareness, and lobbying battle, until our very last drop of cash-flow blood. We will combat the CPSC's magnet prohibition until triumph, or until a glorious death of insolvency on the legal battlefield. At the very least, we'll have one more holiday season of availability.
Magnets must be respected, but need not be feared.
