    Cool Auto dimmer (with GPS or LON/LAT position)

    NEW: Dimmer now supports GPS-Receivers with NMEA protocols.

    remember that this is a beta version, cause i don't had much time to test, so please give me feedback!

    I just coded a program that automatically dims your monitor gamma.
    It locates at your position (lonitude & latitude) where the sun is and dim the monitor if its dark.
    Also you have a manual mode any MANY more really nice features.
    If you set the COM port to "none", the manual lat and long settings are used!

    sounds like what my plugin AutoDimmerControl does for CF. Wonder if you had as much trouble converting the lat/lon values to adjusted time values lol. Good work. Put it up on AutoAppMart and i bet it'll receive some love!

    Got it. Works great. Just one question, is it possible to get the LAT and LON from the GPS as the current location?
