With the call logs could the dates be in dd/mm/yy format and not the amercian format.

Thanks

maverick: ...we apprecaite the feedback so far Guys. 

How is the Call Logs looking for you all ?

Brilliant!!!  A great innovation Smile

I showed the main functions to my wife and straight away she said that the Missed Calls Log will be very handy for her.  At present we get this information by scrolling through the Caller ID logs on our cordless phones, but if we are away from the property, it will be much more convenient to be able to do the same thing via the net.

Contrary to what Wmoore said above, the date format is not American it's YYYY-MM-DD which is fine so far as we are concerned; it's quite obvious which is the Day and which is the Month.

BTW, another nice touch that impressed me is the ability to leave it running with just an icon in the System Tray, ready for use at any time.  Is it possible for 2 users to leave this app. running simultaneously i.e. both logged in at once?

Viddy: non obfuscated Python,


Yes I second that, it is also using a webservice in the back end, theoretically anyone could knock up a app to talk to it directly. Nice work I say

When I installed it, I've allowed it to run automatically after the install finished.  On the task bar the tab for the setup program remained there with no window until I eventually exit VFX Manager (not just minimise to system tray).

Like it lots.

I had the same issue (but promptly forgot about it) if that helps

Very handy for those who don't have the advance feature pack. A couple of things that would be great:

1. A "reject call" button to send incoming calls you don't want to answer to VM
2. Click to call on the call logs

Ooh goody it even keeps the login details from the previous install :-)

Looking good Phil.

I appreciate the fact that it isn't adding new services just making existing ones more accessible. I haven't used any of these options through simply being too un-interested to trawl the website to config them, but having a fancy new toy to do the config with means I am enabling some very handy features.

Thanks team, keep up the good work!!

Phil and Team
Great work.
One small thing.  The app registers in Add remove programs as "0.2" but apart from that excellent tool.


Cheers
Steve

Great stuff once again, Xnet!!

Reading your first post maverick, I was getting all huffed up and ready to ask "what about a linux version" - and was pleasantly shocked to see there was one! I'll give it a go and provide feedback - although is it possible to release a tarball of the source code so us non 'buntu *nix users can "roll our own"? If not, I'm happy to workaround a deb install package on Arch.

Cheers!!
