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.

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="">published it on Github. 
Do you guys seriously not like it?  I asked for SSL Hosting or Donations three months
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


  1. Sorry, man. I don't even use Outlook at all. And I don't have Google
    Voice, so I didn't really have any use for it. But I really wish it had found a big enough audience
    to take root.

  2. I just don't think the audience has found this yet.

  3. I am somehow just finding out about this, but it doesn't seem to work anymore. It is a
    great idea and thanks for doing it. I just wish it worked!

  4. My brother {suggested|recommended} I might like this {blog|website|web
    site}. He was {totally|entirely} right. This post {actually|truly} made my day. You {cann't|can not} imagine
    {just|simply} how much time I had spent for this {information|info}! ...

    will buy anything that is 'one to a customer.'...

  5. The Scion FRS is just fun to drive, has great steering dynamics and enough space for two people. So for me, FR-S is a good daily routine, it fits my needs. It’s fun, it’s fast enough, it has comfortable seats, air conditioning, a 6-speed Notchy, it’s very stable on the highway, and it looks great.
