Ah, great, thanks for the help! Haven't had a chance to try it yet, but if it works for you, I'm sure I'll be able to get it to work for me. I use JPluck instead of Plucker Desktop, but I am using Plucker 1.8 on my Palm. I haven't been using sitescooper at all for a little while now, but now I can get back to it. Admittedly I wound up finding less use for it than I expected, as JPluck can pull most of the sites that I want, but there are still a few, like NYTimes, that seem to work best with Sitescooper. (There's been some great strides here in getting NYT to work with a normal parser, but I prefer the control over content that I can get with Sitescooper.) And yah, it's a huge shame that Sitescooper appears to be dead. I'm on the list too, and I get almost nothing. I believe that JPluck has died also, so I'm not sure how much longer that will be viable, though it works great right now. I've never even tried Plucker Desktop because I read that the two sync conduits were mutually exclusive and you needed to use one or the other. I find it interesting that you're happy with it. Might have to look at it again one of these days...
Thanks again for the help. And yes, I hope that MobileRead can become a new center of Sitescooper; if not development (I'm hardly a programmer either), then at least for usage assistance.
