    I've been playing with the calendar and have some feedback for ya'.
    • The "Notes for day" message isn't tracking with the current day when there are notes entered for a previous day. That's a bit confusing.

      For example, I entered a note for the 9th. When the 10th came around, the highlighted day (in red) was the 10th, but the notes section still said "Notes for day 9". It isn't just a labeling problem... I entered a note while it still said "Day 9", then picked day 10, enetered a note, then went back to Day 9. BOTH notes from Day 9 were still there. (and the note from Day 10 stayed with Day 10)

    • Do you have plans for the top half of the "Notes for Day" section? If not, maybe you can get rid of the label altogether and let the inferrence be that the panel is showing notes for the day hightlighted on the left.

    • I think it'd be handy to timestamp the notes when you enter them. Just the 5 character HH:MM would be fine. Or, enumerate them - show an index number as a bullet as %02d.

    Still playing with it - love it so far!

    There're so many possibilities with this... You could look over your shoulder, realize you have a network connection and hunt for the user's Outlook calendar on their _home_ pc (so, the siutation would be that the vehicle is in the driveway). Or, import a user's Google calendar! Or, let the user configure a spot on a removable drive where you would look - so I'd plug a thumb drive into my carputer, tell you to update, you'd look for the calendar file and import!

    @djerik: Great, I will defenetly contact you about the Outlook sync.

    @midiwall: Thank you for your feed back. I will look in the first issue regarding "Notes for day" message.
    I don't really understand what did you mean in second paragraph about the label. Are you saying I should remove the note "Notes for day" and only show notes, and highlight the day, that notes belong to?
    About timestamp I think I shouldn't have to much trouble.
    With help of djerik the Outlook sync may come reality.

    Right now I do not have much time but I will try to work on this as much as possible.

    Yeup! That's what I meant. I think having the text "Notes for day" there is redundant.

    ! COOL!

    I'll make a Nexus skin for this plugin. I like it! I will wait till you have a stable release...

    Edit: I meant I will wait till you have the overall structure firmed up, as to not rework.

    Would you just like that when there is new day it also show notes for new day?

    Yeah, I think that would make more sense, ya' know? If it's the 10th, then I don't need to see notes from the 9th. If I did wonder what it was I entered on the 9th, then I can click on the "9", and see them.

    Thanks!

    Here is the link to second Alpha relese.
    I don't take responiblity for any damage that this could make, although it shouldn't do any

    I think that three midiwall's suggestions should be done now.
    Now I will try to make ability for removing notes. I was thinking of check and automatically remove all notes that are older than a month on startup. What do you guys think?

    Setup section still need some work.
