Just curious as to where this left off.
Last year I worked on that random sentence generator that took input
from SMS. You sent the SMS to the phone, the phone communicated with the
computer via bluetooth (used gnokii I think). I haven't actually seen
the final product as my computer doesn't want to play .mov files, but
here it is.
Server or phone, you're going to need a phone number.
P.S. Has anyone talked the grad students into sharing/sacrificing office
P.P.S. What kind of horrible person gives a 200 win?
