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.
