There's a big holaboloo because Amazon apparently deleted somebody's account and all their books.
And now un-did it. But it still shows that you don't Own your books in the eyes of these [deleted], so I'd like to un-DRM my Kindle books for archival purposes (And perhaps convert them to ePub, but that's less important). But the instructions I have found for in (on Mac) sounds like Albanian spoken by a broken robot. Can anybody help? (Man, geeks often write the most horrible "instructions".) I have found what I think is the correct plugin for Calibre, but I still can't import Kindle/Amazon books into it.
I managed to get one book into Calibre, but nowhere in the horrible jungle which is the C interface do I see anything about de-DRMing, and convert seems to be greyed out.

Oh durnit. It was pretty much the same, and the same plugin. Did it all again, including rebooting Calibre. But it still doesn't work, now I get "this is DRM protected, sorry", basically.
