Wow Neal, you going to talk about Laser Vapour technology too? May have to book a bigger room.
I'd have thought John would be OK though as he's not XT compatible. (Even without his foil lined undergarments)

Might even turn up myself nothing like a refresher, coz back in the day when I was Telecom Mobile in Abel smith street and had AMP and DAMPs ... now that was cell technology
I don't want to sit next to Johnr btw

Looking forward to it, I'll have to remember not to sit too close to Johnr so I dont get caught in the traps I'm sure have been set for him.

Gidday Neal, John et al, A silly question for you. Warning: I know enough to be dangerous so look out Will Robinson !! Any ideas where I should look for info about how to pull/copy my text messages from Telecom's servers to the memcard in my Motorolla Defy (MB525; Android 2.2.2 OS) ? Should I be looking for (a) some sort of Telecom public API or (b) java classes that use the cellphone/Telecom infrastructure to do the hard work for me ? I have no idea where to start and would greatly appreciate any assistance anyone could provide. Thanks, Grant.
