Hello James,

Imagine I am just reading a message you left on my FrontlineSMS wall since August 2010 announcing that you will be coming to Abuja. I assume that this response is already super-belated but then I figure it won't hurt to acknowledge your message and let you know that I should be available to meet with you when next you will be (if there's a return) in Abuja.

I read some of your interesting works and I wish to note that it would be nice to offer support wherever it might be required.

Have a good day.

Hi james, somehow I can't reply to the status via the mobile Ning version. The Android port is still in early alpha stage, although already further progress than shown in the screenshots 
I will update you on the status on Sunday when I have a computer again. In fact, I run/develop on Ideos and Nexus One.

Hi James,

I am using FLSMS with my application in JSP. I am able to send an SMS writing via FLSMS using my jsp code. Now, I have set up a keyword, set an auto reply and an http request for it. The auto reply is sent and the http request shows a hit but the jsp page is not executed, browser is not opened. Are there any limitations as to the code written in the web page? Does anyone has any idea about this problem...?

Hi James,

Thanks for the information. Can you guide me about the code I have to write in my application after setting up the http trigger and the keyword. I know about the request object in jsp but I don't know about the functions to be called in my jsp code in order to send receive messages. Could you please guide me with this.

James, I'm trying to get an overview of the state of FrontlineSMS:learn.  Can you point me to a useful link?  Has a whitepaper been developed?

Hi, James

It seems i have been missing out a lot on people's ideas to improving the learning and service provision. Thanks very much for sharing. I'm still going through the discussions and people's ideas.

How are the Nigeria preparations going? Share with me what is it that you will actually be doing on my mail.

Thanks in advace

Hi James,

I noticed you made some FrontlineSMS videos on YouTube. I haven't had a chance to watch them yet, but the descriptions sound awesome.

Do you want to add them here on the Ning group too? You can link them directly from YouTube. If you don't have time, I'll do it myself, but then you might not get comments etc. directly.
