Subject: A little RSS+events app


hi all,

It's nice to see such interesting work here, after a long spammy gap
(btw, there is no spam now - so feel free to join the list...)

I've been working on a little app which runs as a little (Java) server
on the desktop and which can download and display RSS+events files,
including encrypted ones if you care to give it your passphrase (but use
a test one - this is alpha software).
There are a bunch of UI issues - I was trying to see whether it would
work or not really.

it looks like (and uses the same servlet code as) the RSS+events demo I
did:

http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/Europe/events/view/

but making it a server means we can do secure stuff with gpg keys. I was
thinking also it can load up Palm Datebook files off my local computer,
which should be easy, but I'm having some MacOsX related difficulties at
the moment.

Someone popped up on the mozilla calendar list talking about RSS and
events

http://groups.google.com/groups?dq=&hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&safe=off&threadm=Pine.GSO.4.44.0208010806570.13022-100000%40mail.ilrt.bris.ac.uk&prev=/groups%3Fhl%3Den%26lr%3D%26ie%3DUTF-8%26safe%3Doff%26group%3Dnetscape.public.mozilla.calendar

so any RSS+events feeds people know of would be useful to try and get
them interested. Mozilla has RDF stuff in it, and can also manage your
gpg passphrase, so this would be ideal, if we can persuade them.

cheers

Libby
