Does libprs500 support the Sony Reader dock?

I think it would be nice to be able to just drop it on there at night have the New York Times waiting in the morning. Along those lines, is there any way to schedule libprs500's new fetching? I'd gladly pay $100 to have the feature added, if not.

Seems like something that could easily be done with whatever the Windows equivalents are for bash scripts and crontabs....but I've been proven to ruin things with Windows before ;-)

Thing is I have no idea what those equivalents might be.

The Cradle, if that's what you mean by "dock" is just a port replicator, essentially. it connects to the PC via USB and to AC power via wall-wart -- I don't think that electrically, it's any different from using the USB and AC cables, so it should work with libPRS500 just fine, and I wouldn't think that it would matter what OS you were using either. It's not like it does anything itself, it's just a quicker/easier connection method than the individual cables.

.bat files and the Windows scheduling service (translated the name of the service from french, might be named in a different way).

There's windows scheduler under the Program Menu/Accessories tab, and batch files for simple stuff (and complex.)

If you want to get crazy, I think that there is at least one tool from MS, and maybe others that will let you run bash, ls, etc.

Hmm well a simple script to do this is
Code:
web2lrf nytimes --username abcd --password dcba -o nytimes.lrf
prs500 cp -f nytimes.lrf prs500:/Data/media/books
Just have that run with windows scheduler/cron and you should be good to go provided you remember to drop the reader on its cradle.
