Y’all Don’t Love Me, Do Ya?

Remember way back in November
when I created something so ridiculously awesome I had to learn two whole new web technologies to do it?


If you don’t, or if you just picked up on my blog, that very incredibly awesome something was
called Google
Voice OMS
– It allows you to send text messages through Outlook using your Google
Voice account, without having to pay a third party company per-message.  Essentially making this
very awesome feature in Outlook 2007 and Outlook 2010 FREE.

At
first, I didn’t want to Open Source it.  I wanted to keep it for awhile and sell it to Google or
something if it caught on – but there seemed to be so tiny of a reaction to the post that I href="http://tech.gtaero.net/2009/11/google-voice-oms-code-on-github.html">published it on Github. 
Do you guys seriously not like it?  I asked for SSL Hosting or Donations three months
ago
and I haven’t received a single cent to pay for the cost (nor an offer to host).


Not that there was really anything left to add to it, but I’ve pretty much just let the project
die.  Nobody’s approached me about funding it, or providing hosting for it, and definitely not
Google although it would be the best thing in the world to kick-start Google Voice for Businesses.


And I was even thinking of doing something cool like seeing if I could create a twitter client
replica of it.  But you know what?  Never
Mind
