If you are interested send me an email. You will need to either have or install outlook or outlook express.

I will be happy to help you test it...
I am just getting started on using GBPVR and already have outlook installed...

why outlook ? why not just do a standard POP client, outlook is a very bad email program, it is full of security holes.

I choose outlook since I have a pocket pc that integrates with outlook. The code can easily be extended to use your own choice for PIM.

fair enough http://gbpvr.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif

What PPC do you have by the way ? I am going to try and optimise the web interface so that it works better on a PPC, it is currently far too wide to be of any real use, constant scrolling.

Is that your house in the background? If so, I expect a bigger donation http://gbpvr.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif

This old thing, it is my vacation home. http://gbpvr.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif

Actually that was my attempt at writting a picture skin, I wrote a plugin that would allow you to set the background picture, but could not get it to update without restarting gbpvr.

Yeah, unfortunately thats not an easy change. Most of the screen and plugins load and cache their background the first time they need to display it.

Nice pile of bricks you got there jorm...

sub,

no worries. Was just something I wanted to try. I wrote an abstract class called pim connector which can be overloaded to return data from any pim. So if anyone else is ambitious! http://gbpvr.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif

If I had that kind of money I would buy you one of those PVR500 cards. http://gbpvr.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif

sandie,
I send the plugin. It bounced back (which happened a lot when I email from hotmail to gmail, most of the time they get it though) please let me know if you did not receive it.

One thought is to do OSD displays when a task or appointment is scheduled or if a new email is received.

Huw,
Thank you! http://gbpvr.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif

Now when gmail gives free pop3 access I will never have to leave my Lazyboy again. http://gbpvr.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif

sandie

I sent it to the alternate email. Checkout the pim.txt for the keys.

So we found that programming with outlook 2003 is not so nice. Works great on outlook 2000. Outlook 2003 contains a security feature that prevents you from accessing its contents without getting permission from the user which last a maximum duration of 10 minutes. You can download the plugin on the wiki page called PIM.
