It looks like Pop!_OS is coming to #Raspberry Pi?
Also, the new functionality to add images with drag & drop also works with iOS' new between-app drag & drop support!
Introducing bookmark folders and better popup menus in #Lagrange v1.7:
See the release announcement for all the details. Just uploaded v1.7.0 to git.skyjake.fi and GitHub, download while it's hot! 🔥
What was once a simple workflow of getting a book's highlights in a simple text file, now requires using something like #Calibre I guess.
It's not impossible but it's unnecessarily more cumbersome and potentially much more fragile.
The other option might be to install a different reader on my device, something like #KOReader. Doable but again, a new source of potential instabilities.
I'm so pissed off right now.
So, the latest #Kobo firmware update intentionally crippled the hidden "export annotations" feature.
A hidden, disabled by default functionality, that has to be manually enabled by editing a .config file, is now intentionally broken.

the fall 2021 tape is out now! apologies this one took so long, life is busy & life with a newborn baby is triple-busy.
as mentioned in the liner notes, cover art has been added to all the mp3 files so, if that's your thing, snag the files again or grab the archives!
please be well. 💕
Review of "Lilith's brood" (4 stars): Wraps its tentacle around your neck https://bookwyrm.social/user/lamnatos/review/53207
I'm a bit worried that discussions I've seen up to now do not mention an officially sanctioned method to upgrade in-place from #Buster to Bullseye.
I'm not very keen in performing a fresh install and re-configuring everything 😕
I absolutely adore Calibre, I think it's a modern miracle of a tool when it comes to ebooks. But the combination of a complex tool with the often black-box implementation of #ereaders often leads to unforeseen instabilities.
I'll try it with a small subset of books and see how it goes. If nothing breaks, I might introduce my old library archives again.
I was hesitant because:
A) it's 2 major versions behind the current one, missing a lot of improvements, changes and ereader-specific fixes.
B) I've gotten used to manually prepare and manage #ebooks and annotations on my #Kobo reader. Sure, it's more of a hassle to do it by hand but I've been bitten twice by the increased complexity, losing books & annotations.
Still, I've installed it and I'll see how it goes. 🤞 🤞 🤞
