AudibleManager Limitations

My internet searches came up fuzzy or empty for these two questions, so here they are, answered:

Does the Windows desktop application (AudibleManager) have the same password limitations as the iTunes authorization does, where a password cannot have special symbols in it?
Yes, yes it does. You have to change your Amazon password to be just alphanumeric for the desktop client to activate.
Does AudibleManager have WhisperSync? I don’t want to have to find where I left off in an audiobook.
No, no it does not.

These are true as of version 5.5.0.5.

I certainly find these two things disappointing, along with the fact that the AudibleManager’s UI is a little… outdated. Maybe I’m the only person in the world who wants to listen on their desktop.

Tons of Videos!

Actually, like 3 videos. But they’re good ones! Plus a few miscellaneous links.

First, a video:

My question: Why can’t he pull out a chair? Turns out, home skillet has a bad back.

To offset that, a bit of cuteness: Maximumble – comic #594 – Ship. Mew.

Weekly Linkage: With a Bit of Politics

This week’s internet cruising:

  • EJ Flavors – Cupid’s Hunt 2012 – Lost And Found: The Lost – An excellent Valentine's Day mix by EJ Flavors. Yeah, I know it's barely even February anymore, but Angela Bofill's "I Try" puts chills up my spine whenever I hear it.
  • Google to Sell Heads-Up Display Glasses by Year’s End – NYTimes.com – I'm totally going to want to be an early adopter of these. If they seem promising, it'd be worth switching to contact lenses for.
  • World population statistics – I always like these types of infographics. ^_^
  • Slavery By Another Name – I heard this on my local NPR station the other night, and was glad to hear the injustices of the prison system be spoken for all to hear, but in a calm and reasonable voice.
  • What’s Wrong with the IGF « The Rotting Cartridge – "Eight (8) judges were assigned to Kale In Dinoland. Of those judges, 1 didn’t install the game or respond to any of our invitations (which we had to send multiple times before judges joined). 3 judges didn’t play the game. Of the remaining 5 judges that played the game, 3 played it very close to the IGF deadline, which was December 5th. […] Excluding the outlier, on average each judge – including the 3 that didn’t play it – played the game for almost 5 minutes’ time. […] So we’re talking almost 4 minutes for each judge of actual game time."

And now for a vibeo:

A little dated at this point, but wonderfully funny. I like Jay Smooth on politics.

Weekly Linkage: Grumpy Heroines, CRUD, and Prison Work

This week’s internet cruising:

Video interlude! This video convinced me to start playing Mass Effect (the first) tonight.

So far, it’s a blast, and not too chock-full of grumpiness. Just enough to be fun.

…I did punch a rambling scientist, though.
