I doubt many people will read this but you never know... I have a simple Palm application need. I want to have a button on a web page for people to download a bunch of calendar entries to go onto users' Palm Pilots.

You'd think it'd be easy but it actually requires a "conduit" program which works on the desktop of the user's machine and does all the sync reconciling -- does the event exist etc. Of course this means your users must download and install this piece of software on their machines, and I need to get someone to write one for every platform I plan to support. Blah!

So what I want is something much simpler. A tiny Palm application that only adds the events (included in the same file) to the date database on the Palm and then removes itself. That way it won't matter so much that users download it every time.

Any ideas? If you're a Palm coder and want to write such an app for a fee (and release under the GPL), get in touch.
