Help needed to import blogs & magazines

I didn't find anything here through searching, but feel free to point me to existing threads if there are any answering this...

In any case, I have a Kindle 3 that I can import books from into Calibre (DRM removed via plugins). However, I am stuck trying to import a regular blog that I receive from Amazon - The Escapist. (I know I could read it on their website, but I actually prefer the organization of their weekly delivered issues.) The problem is that all of the issues are just titled "The Escapist". If I try to import them from the Kindle, Calibre complains about them all having the same name.

I'm sure there is some fairly simple way to extract the date and use that to list is as a magazine, series, or something else in Calibre. Any suggestions about how to do this would be really appreciated. I also get Time magazine and suspect it will have similar problems.

Thanks

Oops, never mind. I see that it was just a warning that Calibre was giving me about already having a book with that title, not some kind of error. In actuality it does seem to import the blog or magazine with the date set correctly.

This will definitely make replacing the old Kindle easier since I can now move old blogs and magazines to the new one without concern about losing anything.
