Repricing Amazon Bots

I’ve been asked lots of times to help with store xml feeds to Amazon. First time I looked it was a nightmare, last time I looked the tools still weren’t there, and this so an area I have explicitly stayed away from because the data processing is really boring and its not what I do.

OS X 10.10 kills send to my kindle for mac. This command downloads a new version and patches it when you paste it into terminal.

After a lot of tearing my hair out, I have now got a connection to the MPD server which doesn’t drop out and a stable, high quality music server pulling the music from my NAS – with a next button for the odd misstep on the playlist. Here is the code for your delectation.

I’ve been playing with the very excellent Volumio.  Having got it all up and running, with a Hifiberry DAC and an LCD from it was pretty good. However, Volumio only allows for one playlist and the occasional song I was not in the mood for crept in.
