import-gvhistory: Export Google Voice SMS/Text Messages and Call logs to CSV using Powershell

Here is a script I wrote to parse the thousands of HTML files produced by Google Takeout when exporting Google Voice data.  This script parses the html files to gather the Contact Name, Number, time, type (Placed/received etc), duration, and (text/voicemail) message contents for every phone call and text message, and outputs them as a powershell object which can be further filtered or manipulated and then exported into a csv or other format as needed.

Basic examples of how to use this script are included in the script comments.  If you download the script and have trouble, or if it works perfectly, please leave a comment and let me know.

**Update 12/20/2014** I've just posted step by step instructions for how to use the script..
**Update 11/16/2015** The script has been updated due to a change in how Google Takeout exports the timestamps.
