eBook library managers - eLibrary and calibre

If you’re collection of electronic books is growing unmanageable you might want to check out eLibrary or calibre.

My favorite feature of eLibrary is source file renaming after it downloads the book information.  The program is Windows only at this time and is focused on library management and reading on the computer. 

Another option is calibre.  Calibre is also an open source project hosted on  Calibre supports file format conversion for several popular ebook readers as well as a built-in ebook reader.

Install TAP for Wippien on Vista x64

I wanted to try out Wippien on 64-bit Vista.  Had to download the 64-bit TAP driver then run the “hdwwiz.exe” to manually install the TAP driver.

Add TAP-Win32

Add TAP-Win32-2

Unfortunately, Wippien didn't work out the way I hoped it would. Still looking for a VPN solution that I can run on my home network for remote access. Probably will need to look at using a hardware solution like a VPN concentrator.
