Spam in phone database

During regullar review of additions to phone database, I noticed that some people tried to add spam and links to their sites. I'm not going to add any further restrictions on database, but to make spammers life a bit harder, I added logging of IP addresses which I'm going to block if they attempt to add some links.

Fortuntely spam volume is htere low enogh to be still handled manualy.

New python-gammu user

As it already appeared on Gammu wiki, I consider it official. I'm happy to announce that there is another python-gammu based open source application to manipulate your phone. It is called gMobileMedia and it is focused on multimedia data stored in phones.

It's nice to see that somebody else is actually using my Python bindings :-).

Too slow coder

Okay the release I promised will be delayed as I didn't manage to rewrite editor widget fast enough. Right now I have the editor itself working, it only needs some code cleanup and implement returning of value. After this "minor" thing will be implemented, you can expect new version, what will hopefully happen this week.

Ready for new release?

I'm going to fix last remaining bug marked for fixing this evening and release Wammu 0.16 after it. So if you have any problem with Wammu and want to have it fixed in next release, it's best time to report it.

Wammu site split

I decided to split Wammu site to several pages. The one page seemed too large so this was logical step which I wanted to do for a long time. I hope there are no broken links or any other broken stuff.

Thanks for motivating me

This is a bad day. I'm bad guy because I don't have web pages about Wammu in my native language, I hacked absolutely useless CSV import code in phpMyAdmin. What comes next?

I would make bilingual pages if I'd have time for that, but I will rather write new feature in Wammu than spend time on this.

And I know export is not perfect, everything can be improved and you are welcome to do that!

No serious Windows bugs in Wammu?

It looks like Wammu for Windows was deployed quite good. Three days after annoncement and no major complains were reported so far to bug tracker (only one minor which I managed to find just after release). And people are downloading big installer as frequently as source codes (and I hope they actually use this tool :-)).

But if you have a problem, don't affraid of reporting, I will do my best to fix it.
