Login problems solved!

Thanks to another reader (known only to me by 'First Last') the login issues have been resolved!

It turns out that the problem was much more simple than I originally thought. 'First Last' pointed out that the query string parameter 'service' needed to be passed along with the value of 'grandcentral' (which is the name of the company that Google acquired in order to bring us Google Voice). 

The change has been made, and the latest versions of the various Google Voices script can be downloaded from my github repo.

From now on, my scripts will be available at that location. It is much easier for me to maintain, and for users of github is it much easier for you to keep up with the latest version and contribute back if you wish (which would be nice!).

Login problems

Some of you may have already noticed, but the gvoice scripts I wrote no longer appear to be working. The script will either crash or report that it cannot login.

I am aware of this issue and have looked into it. Google changed the login screen again, and despite my efforts over the last few days I am unable to find out how to authenticate programmatically as I was before.

If any of you have figured out how to do this, I would love to know!

To the rest of you: hang in there. I know that this script has been very important and useful for many people. Once I figure out how to get around this I will put an update up here and in the git repo.

After too long of a is an update!

Big thanks to Mike who helped me by showing me where to get the newly required "tok" variable when downloading the contact list.

I haven't been able to setup py2exe on my current computer yet, so I do not have a standalone .exe version yet (any volunteers?) but the following files are now up to date:
