Most of the article linked above is a very basic list of trouble shooting steps, but it has instructions and a list of prefixes that let you identify the exact version of a Kindle that may occasionally be useful to someone.

Thanks, Claw -- his 'troubleshooting' tips are really basic -- but, as you say, it's not bad to know what kind of kindle you have!  Certainly helps to know that when people come here asking questions! 

If you end up having to contact Kindle CS, of course, they'll know, because they can see your account. :)
