Few questions regarding root

Just got down doing the soft root and I have a few questions:

1. using trook, I typed in the rss feed url for the local paper. Is there anyway to save this or do I need to type it each time.

2. I seem to recall when I first finished, there was an icon to make the nook launcher menu the default, as well as one for B&N Home. I seem to have misplaced them Is there away to restore them or find them?

3. I use Calibre on my Mac for reading material such as Time, Newsweek, American Spectator, etc. Is there a way to get these to automatically get sent to my nook without being physically connected.

Thanks

1.) You can set your entries as favorites.
2.) Should be available in "launcher settings".
3.) You can link Trook to your calibre server and access it via WiFi. Doesn't have to be on the same network, can be done remotely.

Press (and keep pressing) on the icon to the top right of the screen (second from right) - a menu shows up that says add to fav. the feed will be saved to Myfeeds section (you may need to restart the app or the nook for the myfeeds to show up for the first time)
