Calibre

Calibre can catalog e-books; convert e-books; view e-books; edit the metadata of e-books; download news articles from hundreds of websites or "custom sources" (i.e. feeds from websites that you must input manually) and convert them to e-books; and "talk" to various e-book readers to easily import/export e-books from/to the devices. You can use it to send a document to Kindle and many other ebook devices, like Sony PRS 300/500/505/600/700/900, Barnes & Noble Nook, Cybook Gen 3/Opus. The input formats supported by Calibre include CBZ, CBR, CBC, CHM, EPUB, FB2, HTML, LIT, LRF, MOBI, ODT, PDF, PRC, PDB, PML, RB, RTF, TCR, TXT. And the output formats provided by Calibre include EPUB, FB2, OEB, LIT, LRF, MOBI, PDB, PML, RB, PDF, TCR, TXT.

One thing Calibre won't do, however, is read DRM protected e-books. And, though Calibre does not explicitly support the iPad (yet), but it does support the ePub format, the e-book format of iPad. Calibre is cross platform, works on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.

Calibre v0.6.47 [09 Apr, 2010] can be downloaded at http://calibre-ebook.com/download

Do note its whopping size, its Windows version is around 28 MB.

  2. Dear Sir,

    I have the pleasure to brief on our Data Visualization software
    "Trend Compass".

    TC is a new concept in viewing statistics and trends in an animated
    way by displaying in one chart 5 axis (X, Y, Time, Bubble size &
    Bubble color) instead of just the traditional X and Y axis. It could
    be used in analysis, research, presentation etc. In the banking
    sector, we have Deutsche Bank New York as our client.

    I hope you could evaluate it and give me your comments. So many ideas
    are there.

    You can download a trial version. It has a feature to export
    EXE,PPS,HTML and AVI files. The most impressive is the AVI since you
    can record Audio/Video for the charts you create.

ASP.NET 3.5 interview questions with answers

The IsReusable property gets a value indicating whether another request can use the IHttpHandler instance. The method ProcessRequest() allows you to process the current request. This is the core place where all your code goes. This method receives a parameter of type HttpContext using which you can access the intrinsic objects such as Request and Response.
