Your One-Stop Shop for the OLCalendar Blogwave Adapter. Usefulness not guaranteed.
For now, an all-in-one version history (topmost is newest, natch), but later- who knows?
PubDate is set to the Start Date of the appointment. I haven't found a good way of representing the end date in RSS yet; I'm messing around with attribution, CDATA sections and similar, but either I'm getting it wrong, or BlogWave/RSS.Net don't care about it :)
Implement optional Body inclusion for appointments (and add more "how to format the separation between calendar data and body text" issues).
Some type of consumer would be nice (wow, a synchronization architecture built from RSS!), but also quite dangerous. So perhaps not...
Updated Outlook Calendar Adapter for Blogwave Beta 1
To celebrate the release of BlogWave Beta 1*, I updated the Outlook Calendar Adapter for the new version!
There haven't been any real enhancements (depending on how you feel about the themed dialog background for XP), but there are now two (relevant) files in the download - the OLCalendar DLL, and an image file used to generate all BlogWave's internal images (tres slick, Addy!) - everything goes in the Adapters folder. Copying the Readme is optional - my advice is to flip a coin and then if you feel you might want to flip again, go with the option you really wanted to choose.
I fixed a couple of Dumb Bugs, nothing really worth mentioning. The previous To Do list largely stands, which I might revisit for newer BlogWave s.

Yell if you have any problems with it (it's been tested (roughly speaking) on my machine, but no others yet...).
Outlook Calendar Adapter 1.1 for Blogwave
Working from the to do list at the original post, and desperately trying to avoid working on my terrible remote desktop switcher, I've updated the pseudo-terrible calendar adapter.
Major New Features:

There are still many rough edges:
But all up, it's fun to play with. For instructions, see the original post.

Fiddling: Outlook Calendar Adapter for Blogwave 0.3
Seeing as Addy was kind enough to include sample adapter code with BlogWave 0.3, my immediate thought was that a Calendar might be cool. Can o' worms, that. I fiddled with this for the last few nights, and I think I've hit the 80/20 point, so I've cleaned up the UI, plastered massive warnings on it, and now it's ready to be seen by anyone not seriously interested in using it.
It's not designed for unattended use; it uses the simplest possible Outlook automation - no profile selection, no mess, no fuss, as long as the logged on user is the calendar source. Um, and it mostly works at night. Mostly.
Disclaimer: I strongly recommend against using this adapter, for any purpose, ever.
Items I thought about but didn't/couldn't/might implement later:
Download: OLCalendar.zip . Unzip into the BlogWave Adapters folder, restart Blogwave if it's running, and it should be good to go.
