Re: Web Site is Down

I am using 0.3.6 development version -

1. Now this may be taking the long way around - but help deliver you
some shortcuts (or at least shortcuts to your users) have you thought
about plugging conduit into the plaxo API?  Since the plaxo API is
open, it would give users of contuit an enhanced choice on syncing.
Since you can sync contacts and calender info across aol(bleh),
hotmail, yahoo, Mac, outlook, and Macintosh native programs (without
looking I don't know which ones this could be the cheater method to
providing quicker support for all of those platforms.   I'm glad the
calender bug is being looked at, it seems to be working, it's just
annoying that it continue to churns away.   I assume I should just go
back to the two way sync instead of two one way syncs then.

2.  The documentation is vague saying RSS feeds with enclosures, not
stating only the enclosure info.   This is fine and I can accept that
answer.  Since you chose the very easy for grandmothers interface -
would it be possible to add a check for data types that won't work
together?  That way you couldn't sync RSS feeds (or anything else) to
another sync point that is not supported or wouldn't work.

I had been looking for a long time for something that could bring an
RSS feed into a calender, I had found it (kind of) with the gcaldaemon
program.  I run it on a server on my home network and it takes RSS
feeds and converts them to ical - the annoyance is that evolution
handles calenders subscriptions as an overlay calender and not into
the calender directly.   This means I could sync the overlay read only
calender into gmail - but at that point I will have double events on
my local calender.  (I know I'm too picky).   What I do think though
is that you could look at the gcaldaemon's code for the RSS to ical
conversion maybe?  Just figured it would be good to suggest as a
reference point.

3. Thank you - I had some photos uploaded accidentally that weren't
mine because of this bug, took about 1-2 hours of clean up from my
flickr account.

4.   Could it be that since I hadn't uploaded any pictures to flickr
in a couple weeks the data didn't count as new.  I wasn't getting any
pictures to come across?  Also another annoying bug I didn't mention,
every time I reboot facebook needs to re-authenticate even when I
click save password information.

Since I didn't reply to the other e-mail last night.  I'll be happy to
start some documentation, I should have time tomorrow.   You
responding like this is definitely helping me get a better grasp of
intentions and design though.   I wish I was more of a programmer to
be of use on that side of the fence.
