Sendmail Enabler Forum
Category : Commentary/sendmailforum.txt
I've created a forum for Sendmail Enabler users. Look here. In case you're interested, these are the messages I've received so far and the answers I've given. It took some work to transfer these messages over to the forum, but I'm hoping that it'll save me from having to repeat myself in future. Also I'm hoping that people who know the answers that I don't will jump in and help me learn a thing or two.
This is also Live Art. Watch how an idea grows.
Another spot for a meet-up?

I'm at the Sandwich Shop at Robinson Centre on Robinson Road, which is parallel to Shenton Way. I'm enjoying its wireless network for the price of a latte. Free muffin for breakfast. It's easy to get on, though the reception feels weak. But they're not too comfortable with me taking a shot of the place. Wonder why? The word on the net flies faster than word of mouth.
Testing the Water
Category : Commentary/trialrun.txt
Over the last two weeks, I've noticed that I'm getting about three to four downloads of Sendmail Enabler each day. Last Sunday, there were about seven. I hope that Sendmail Enabler is doing its job for these people.
I don't really know how it's doing. I've got a couple of pleasant feedback about having done a good thing, and a couple of people who didn't offer any feedback but wanted some more questions answered. But mostly, it's silence, but I guess the number of downloads does say a thing a two.
But Sendmail Enabler is really a trial run for an Open Source project that I'm contemplating doing. After all, the Sendmail Enabler source code is also available for download and I do see it being downloaded.
So I've learnt that you've got to solve a few other problems. How do you keep an archive of your correspondences so you don't have to keep repeating yourself? I guess I could use the bulletin board, but will these Sendmail users be willing to sign in just to get an answer? It's faster for them to just e-mail me. But some of their questions are really interesting. I wish some other users could help answer them for me. Then I would have learnt something new just by doing something good in the first place. Good Karma, as a certain fella woulld say. So, time to think again.
