PS: I just tried to find my post where I originally proposed to introduce a Wiki for Kindle Touch-related hacking. It was only half a year ago, and yet no search engine (neither mobileread's own, nor Google, nor anything else) would turn up anything. But that just proves my point, which led me to initiate that other Wiki page: there is a lot of information in forum posts, but it tends to get buried quickly. Let's extract and refine the important parts of that information, and let it flow into the more "durable" Wiki pages.
That is why I set up the master index and "prefix index" wiki pages. It took a lot of work on my part to get enough information into them (and a lot of begging others to contribute) before others began contributing to them. It seems that something like this needs the original author to provide a lot of content before others think it is valuable enough to support. This document looks like a great start, but it needs the attention of others who have kindlet development experience to become what it should be. Team efforts provide valuable content that may be outside the experience of the originator or the document.
