Calibre Version 1.0 Released After 7 Years of Development

batdragon Re:Does it do custom folders? (193 comments)

So far you had to import all of your files into calibre, it can't reference external files. So it is pretty much unusable for importing larger existing libraries, and you get locked in.

For me, I think this is a feature.

It ensures that no matter what plugins / convertors / bugs calbre has at the time, your original files don't get mucked up. So you can merge records, mess about with meta data, and not have to worry about losing anything.

The copies that are imported into calibre's own library folder are just that: plain copies. I don't get your point about "locked in". You're as locked in as you were with your original files. The directory layout may be different, but nothing gets obfuscated.

If that's all the data anyone was using, it probably wouldn't be enough to be convincing. But there's a much longer history available. For starters, look at ice core drilling...

Technical Specs Released For Aussie Net Filtering

batdragon Re:Voluntary (231 comments)

Ok. Seems that we're in violent agreement. :)

The way I read your comment, "so long as it remains voluntary", it sounded like you thought there were currently plans to *keep* it voluntary.

Just wanted to make sure no-one was in any doubt there are no such plans at the moment.

Apologies for misinterpreting.

Technical Specs Released For Aussie Net Filtering

batdragon Re:Voluntary (231 comments)

Only the *testing* is voluntary.

When (if, hopefully) the real thing goes live, "Filtering will be mandatory in all homes and schools across the country".
