Gammu hit 1 MiB of sources

I just noticed that Gammu compressed tarball for first time reached 1 MiB. Well most of recent additions were caused by inclusion of gnapplet (I tried to find some page dedicated to this, but it seems to be tightly integrated with Gnokii), but it still indicates that code is alive :-).

GoogleBot getting crazy?

I just noticed that GoogleBot already downloaded 1 GiB from archzoom. As there is nothing new on this server, it might be quite conservative about downloading. Maybe they decided there must be something really important :-)

I often heard complains about MSNBot, but this time it got just 160 MiB, so it looks like we have another evil bot.

Wammu on Windows

It looks that the code basically works. At least I already got information from several users, who managed to run it. However there are still some things broken:

  • Phone searching doesn't work. There is some Unix only code and I'm going to fix it during weekend.
  • setup.py is somewhat wrong. Maybe I missed something while writing it, but you don't need to invoke this script to run Wammu - just execute wammu script in top level directory and it should work.

python-gammu being used

In recent days I got two announcement about starting projects using python-gammu. Both of them are GUI applications, so it looks like Wammu will have competitors.

It's good to see that, because I seriously don't have much time for writing Wammu and this will bring users other possibility. And maybe it will push me harder to finally make PyGTK rewrite of Wammu :-).

Let's see how will these projects evolve, but I hope they will be successful.

Wammu in testing

Good news everyone, Wammu has just entered Debian testing:

Subject: wammu 0.13-1 MIGRATED to testing
From: Debian testing watch <noreply@henning.makholm.net>
To: wammu@packages.debian.org
Date: Sun, 14 May 2006 15:08:41 -0600

FYI: The status of the wammu source package
in Debian's testing distribution has changed.

  Previous version: (not in testing)
  Current version:  0.13-1

Website transfered and cleaned up

Main website has been finally transfered to new server. Please be patient while things settle down, as something might be missing. If you miss something or something is broken, please contact me ASAP.

On this occassion I also removed obsolete stuff. This mostly consists of various stuff from my university studies and some photos.

PackTest lives

When I recently found one of forgotten old childs living in dark side of internet hidden under tons of advertisements, I decided to move it back to my server. This step doesn't mean revival of that testing, I just don't want to be connected with that site full of ads :-). So it doesn't really live.

Now I decided that it maybe deserves own domain. So if you want to see what I did more than six years ago, visit packtest.cihar.com.
