I noticed recently that Local went from being free to $9.99. While I like the app, I'd rather not pay $10 for it - especially when the GPS setting never really worked for me. If it had worked as advertised then I might.
Does anyone know of an alternative to Locale that's free? I just want my ringer shut off and then back on at certain times. GPS interactivity would be ideal, but I can live with just working off of the clock.

It's not in the market yet. You have to download/install directly from the website. That said he's turned off the download link as the forthcoming 0.8b version has some major changes. Should be out this week. AFAIK it works on 1.5 through 2.1. Read through the beta forum for more on the current status/capabilities.

I checked the web site for Tasker and I'm looking forward to him releasing the new Beta. Last I looked it wasn't up yet, but it looks like a must-have kind of app. Thanks!Palm Treo 755 --> Rooted Droid Eris --> Rooted HTC Thunderdud --> 2012 Google Nexus 7 and rooted Samsung Galaxy S4

I'm also disappointed that Locale costs so much now, and after reading some of the reviews lately, it seems like the app has really gone downhill after coming out of Beta. Strange.
I've been using Timeriffic as an alternative and it is very similar to Locale and has been working very well so far. The only drawback is I don't think it works with GPS right now, but that's ok for me because Locale's GPS plugin always seemed to drain my battery really fast.

You did install the Cupcake version? That's for 1.5.
Other than that all I can suggest is register in his forums and ask there. Pent is pretty responsive so I'm sure you'll get a quick reply. Bear in mind he's in the UK so adjust your time expectations accordingly.
It's definitely not an open-and-run app, so I'd like as much time as possible to develop a full understanding of it.

Looking for an app that uses the Show me as: Available / Busy feature in calendar to set my phone ringer off or on.
Everything seems to be time based (i.e. 8am to 5pm M-F) which I find very restrictive and less than ideal for me in particular. I work a rotating days off schedule and often work weekends and have for example Tues Wed off for "my weekend".
Since Available and Busy are two variables available both versions of Google Calendar, it seems it would be easy to do.
Does anybody know if there is such a profile manager out there? Anybody? Bueller?
