During a short break from learning about our SOTA database and whilst getting a machine ready to support the development software, I needed to do something different to let my mind rest. What better way of resting than writing some software. So I’ve written a simple app that makes entering the data to use with my SMSBOT child’s play. I would almost say it’s fool proof but nearly 30 years in the software industry means I know there is no limit to the ingenuity of fools!
I haven’t wrapped it up into an app that can be installed direct to a phone. That’s a bit tricky and I don’t need to do it for my own use. However, if there are enough people who have the right phone and want this then I’ll look into it. What surprised me was that from installing the developer files to having a finished (beta test) piece of code that would send an SMS only took 3hrs and that included cooking the tea and putting clothes into the tumble dryer.
So if you have a Nokia phone running Symbian S60 3rd edition or Symbian S60 5th edition and you use the SMSBOT then you are in luck. If you don’t know if you have the right phone then you can look at this Wikipedia web page and find out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S60_(software_platform)
If your phone is listed against “S60 3rd Edition”, “S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 1”, “S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 2” or “S60 5th Edition” and you would be interested in this then drop me a line to mm0fmf AT hotmail.com (do the obvious). If enough people want this I’ll figure out how to make an installer.
Now, I’m about to take a laptop to bed with the Database source and study that before dropping into the arms of Morpheus. WX looks not too bad so I hope to bag a pair of 4pt summits which means a 7.00am wakeup. And yes, Gerald, I know that’s a lie in for you!
