Roach motel indeed; sidekick XMLRPC service is no more
I went back to the most recent (2008-03) of my calendar sync items in the DIG breadcrumbs research blog and got hipwsgi.py from palmagent fired up, only to get "Connection refused" from pimapi.prod1.dngr.net.
I thought I could write off the sidekick altogether at that point, but:
- Organizing weekend todo lists works with the sidekick in
a way that I haven't managed to duplicate: lists on paper
don't sort themselves by priority and due date; Google
calendar tasks don't sync with the sidekick (nor with any
usable android app that I could find).
- How do I call my brother from the car? Using a mobile
phone without my contacts would be like using the Web
- Android's crummy appointment notification reminded me how much I rely on a gizmo to beep when I'm supposed to stop coding and go to my appointment with the Doctor. Delegating this to a gizmo goes back to ~1996 when I first got a Psion PDA. (see some python code for psion files)
I'm not sure how I'm going to muddle thru this mix of google calendar/contacts stuff and sidekick phone... maybe I can use SMS reminders for calendar stuff, but you never know how long those things are going to take to be delivered; T-Mobile seems to deliver them 13 hours later in some cases.
For now, I'm going to pickle some state...
