Howto: Remove Roku from Amazon account (or other devices) No comments yet

Amazon and Roku seem to make it hard to delete a Roku or other device from your Amazon account and most people say to go to the My Digital library and remove the device. However at time of writing (March 2012) this advice is incorrect.
Instead sign into your amazon account and then go to https://www.amazon.com/gp/video/ontv/pin
You will have your roku or other device listed, select delete and then confirm the deletion. Seconds later you will be able to register your roku with Amazon again. Of course if you don’t have access to the original Amazon account then you will need to factory reset the Roku first.

CML Library lookup bookmarklet again. No comments yet

Several years ago I had a bookmarklet that would let me jump from an Amazon book page to the catalog page on the Columbus Metropolitan Library website. It was then a simple matter of clicking the reserve button to add the book to my reserve list.  A while back the library changed their system and I never got round to updating the bookmark,but drag this CML Link to your favourites bar and you too can have the same functionality.  If you are not using CML’s system the link is pretty easy to change so you may be able to work it out yourself. Alternatively try using Jon Udell’s Library Bookmark Generator page that got me started in rebuilding this link.

How to get mobi files into the Android Kindle app 6 comments

I got a free .mobi file today and it took a couple of minutes to get the file working in the Kindle app on the android. First of all, download the mobi file to the android. By default it will save it in the download file on the SD card. Then using your application of choice, move the file to the kindle directory. If you have the kindle application running, you will need to kill it and then relaunch it so that the kindle app restarts and realizes the file has been loaded.
I use the OI File Manager app for moving files on the android, and Advanced Task Killer to kill applications when required. The other android apps I use can be seen at my Absoblogginlutely appbrain page

Book Reading list using wordpress 1 comment

I think I can hack together a reading list using WordPress and a plugin. My preferred solution would be to use MT and a plugin but the only plugin that seems to do that requires a new version.
So I’ve installed the Amazon Media Manager into WordPress and made the following changes.
