cat out of the bag

Well, my SMS project has finally been loosed on an unsuspecting world. And yeah, it's for DCist. Go check out the announcement message here — it's got all the details on what the service does and how to use it.

My dirty little secret? Throughput is an unimpressive 4-6 outbound messages per minute. If things don't crash horribly under the announcement traffic, I'll be very surprised. But there's nothing I can do but dive in and see how it handles load. Once it breaks I'll start sorting it all out.


That's really cool. I especially like the metro function, which I would use a lot if I were still in DC.

Nice job, Tom!

Worked like a charm for me, responded really quickly. This is pretty awesome.

Slick work, Tom. I'm really impressed!

Holy hell, Tom. Your one step closer to eliminating the calls you regularly field from me when I'm lost walking aimlessly or lost on the grid and without the internets.
