Web-page uploading to Kindle(DX)

Hello all. I have some free time now and I just got my Kindle DX Graphite, so here is some questions from a web-developer.
Some times I feel like there is a need to have a software that can save a page that I'm currently reading on my desktop and upload it on my kindle so I can read it later. Currently I'm using web2pdfconvert.com for this purpose, but this one requires to manually download resulting .pdf and upload it to the kindle. So it can be nice to have some sort of bookmarklet or so that can upload a page with a single click via USB or by @kindle.com mail. And here is a questions:
-do you need a software like this?
-what features do you like to see in this software?
-what format do you prefer? .pdf, .jpg (which looks exactly as in your browser) or .mobi (with the webpage's text only)?
-would you pay for this software? for some features?
sorry for my english, I'm not a native

You can set up a web site on your desktop. Set an Static IP for it. Copy files (that you want to copy to your kindle) to a folder.
On your kindle, browsing your own website and download those files.
Currently, I'm using IIS to do it (it's free).

It seems like you're not asking how to do it but you want to do a market research before you write somekind of program to do it. lol.

Yep, I know how to do it, and I really want to know a community's opinion But this post isn't a "market research". I'm just curious if anybody else need a software like this, coz I'm too lazy to make it for myself only
