It is not me :-)

I also install it from the Calibre site, but I know that the packagers here say that there are security issues with the upstream version that you should be aware. That's the only thing I say.

I use calibre extensively and have hunted around and found the plug-ins that
automatically rip out the DRM in all the ebooks I purchase. These then work
perfectly on any device I own.

Note: I've had two ebook providers die/go out of business
on me, and once I buy a book (and I always buy them, authors need money too),
all go through this process.

That's something I need to learn. I also buy the ebooks I read, but I need to learn how to make backups of them so that if the device or the company dies, my books do not die with them.
