Re: [Evolution] Moving contacts etc between computers

Hi Mark,

many thanks for your suggestion. I should have said, I've already tried
this (Palm IIIc, cradle at work, serial cable at home). However, it has
on two occasions destroyed the Contacts list on one or the other
machine, and seems to always duplicate items in my task list... sorry,
after fixing it up continuously for the past month, I've given up on the
Palm. Pity, it seemed like the ideal solution (well, ideal would be my
trusty old Psion 3a, but you can't have everything <g>).

All the best,

Greetings !

I have SuSE 8.2 systems both at work and at home. I am running Evolution
1.4.4 on both machines. I would like to keep the Calendar, Tasks and
Contacts data in sync between the two systems (but not email - I have
different email addresses at work & at home).

Why not use a Palm device to sync both at home and at work?

If you already have a Palm, the cost of a second cradle is not that
much. If you don't already have a Palm, well, then either you have to
compare the cost of the Palm against the cost of your time to set
something else up, and/or include the efficiencies from having access to
your Contacts, Tasks and Calendar when you are neither in the office or
at home.

I'm not trying to be flip here; I do this myself and it was
straightforward to set up under SuSE 9.0 with Evo 1.4.5.
