Export Pinboard to Instapaper?

I am not that great with tags and Instapaper has full text searching now. So, how can I move my Pinboard bookmarks to Instapaper, where I have a subscription? I don't think I can do directly, but perhaps there's an indirect way?

Read-It-Later Services and Archiving - Help

I have about 1500 articles "archived" on Instapaper. I thought it always retrieved the local cached copy from my app or Instapaper. However, whenever there is an internet connection on my iPad, it will attempt to get the article from the original URL and if it's not there, tell me it's not available. >>>details inside [more inside]

What kind of e-reader do I want?

I want a cheap e-reader for reading longform articles in bed. It must work with Readability or InstaPaper or the like. It does not need to do anything else like games or surfing the intertubes. I have an iPhone for that. Do I want a Kindle?

A kindle/instapaper/readability/calibre question for you, gentle (electronic) reader

I'm having no luck transferring the *complete* web page of 197 responses to this question posed by edge.org (previously on the blue, I think) to my little friend, a Kindle Keyboard (aka Kindle 3). I've tried using both Instapaper and Readability, but I think there's code in the webpage to disable a complete scraping. I'm also attempting to use calibre, and if anybody has a recipe that downloads a plain web page (probably using something called "web2disk") in calibre, I'm all ears.

iPod/iTunes Weirdness, Instapaper AWOL, and Safari Reading List Options

A few days ago syncing my iPod Touch with iTunes deleted all but its original apps (My fault for not noticing that the list of apps in iTunes had, for some reason, reverted to the factory defaults). While slowly restoring my purchased apps via the App Store App>Updates>Purchased, I noticed that ad-supported Instapaper was no longer listed. Googling 'Instapaper Free' told me that the ad-supported version was removed from iTunes and support discontinued sometime in April of this year. This has led me to several questions: [more inside]

How to transfer Instapaper to Kindle 3

I cannot figure out how to transfer articles I've saved at Instapaper to my new Kindle 3. From what I read it ought to be possible, but after two days I can't set it up. If I understand correctly, Instapaper will email to my kindle email address the articles I select to be sent, and the Kindle is somehow supposed to receive them via my Wi-Fi. Need I admit I'm a bit clueless? I need very specific step-by-step directions and or suggestions for finding / hiring somebody to set this up for me. I bought the Kindle mainly to be able to do this. I work on Mac Book Pro.
