Doesn't work at all... As a long time user of Locale, I was happy to find this plug-in for Gtalk. Since my company just recently moved to Google Apps and we use Gtalk to track availability, I thought this would be a great tool to program in my phone to show when I'm in the office, out of the office, or completely inaccessible. If only it worked. I spent 45 minutes trying to get it to push a status update using geographic location and time of day. The Toast response was always "Trouble connecting" or "Cannot log in". I finally gave up. I really wish this worked, because it would mean people could easily find out where I was based on situations like geographic location.

It works BUT... ...you *must* be logged into Chat in the Gmail web interface or it won't work. I was logged out of Chat in Gmail because I use a separate chat client, and it stopped working. As soon as I signed back in, my Tasker actions started working again.

Doesn't work - please update Any tasker actions just pop up 'Login problem'. Could be because I'm on an Apps account, but still.
