Quick Review of Asus EEE Pad Transformer

Well, I've not long opened my new Asus EEE Pad Transformer and so far everything is really sweet with it! My major gripe at the moment is the lag between the docked keyboard and the browser - it's shockingly slow!

That aside, the tablet iteself is really nice and the on-sreen keyboard works with no lag :) The docked keyboard randomly makes you go somewhere else on the screen (especially in the browser) and I keep end up typing something in the address bar - well annoying!

I can pretty much second what everybody else has said on their reviews of this device - and honestly - it is really nice. I purchased it to use it as a work tool as well an internet browser. So TeamViewer is on and working a treat on the nice 10.1" screen.

I'll no doubt put more details with how I get on with this as time goes by...but for now, it's play time!

Sending Email using VBScript via Google Apps Mail / GMail

Following on from my previous post Sending Email using ASP.NET via Google Apps Mail / GMail, I have needed to send an email via GMail / Google Apps using VBScript. So here it is...

Dim objMessage

Set objMessage = CreateObject("CDO.Message")
objMessage.Subject = "MY_SUBJECT"
objMessage.From = "FROM_ADDRESS_SAME_AS_USER_NAME"
objMessage.To = "TO_ADDRESS"
objMessage.TextBody = "MY_MESSAGE"

objMessage.Configuration.Fields.Item( _
"http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusing") = 2
objMessage.Configuration.Fields.Item( _
"http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserver") = "smtp.gmail.com"
objMessage.Configuration.Fields.Item( _
"http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserverport") = 465
objMessage.Configuration.Fields.Item( _
"http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpauthenticate") = 1
objMessage.Configuration.Fields.Item( _
"http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpusessl") = true
objMessage.Configuration.Fields.Item( _
"http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusername") = "MY_USER_NAME"
objMessage.Configuration.Fields.Item( _
"http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendpassword") = "MY_PASSWORD"
objMessage.Configuration.Fields.Update

out = objMessage.Send
Set objMessage = Nothing
