I just released a new project on GitHub: https://github.com/cubiclesoft/email_sms_mms_gateways If you aren't a developer, then you probably won't care. Basically, I burned my weekend constructing a JSON array by hand that maps countries and carriers together that provide a free e-mail to SMS/MMS gateway. Well, it is free for software developers. Charges, of course, still apply to the recipient of the SMS/MMS messages. GitHub makes it really easy to keep that mess up-to-date. Other people supply pull requests, I click a button to accept them. Bam! The list is updated. Then everyone using the list pulls the latest list and...Bam! Everyone's software is running with the absolute latest information. It is a nice, clean system. I've got a use for this project but it is going to play a smaller role than I originally dreamed up. Carriers need to get their act together and form a consistent strategy that developers can rely upon. Standards committees exist for
Here you will find all sorts of great information or rants, whichever, about the software industry, products I use, and tips.
If you find a nifty piece of software you think I should be using, forward it to me in the comment of the latest post.
