GMail on the move

I’ve been wondering how best to get at my email when I’m elsewhere. I use gmail, and my phone’s poor-quality POP3 client doesn’t do authentication, meaning that I can’t download mail from gmail directly. I don’t want to run my own mailserver, either. Then I came across gmail-mobile which is a WAP front-end to GMail. These blokes score high points for genius. They have a running example of their WAP server at which works perfectly in my phone’s WAP browser. You can also download the code and run your own server if you don’t trust theirs to not remember your password or something. They get high points for this. Well done the gmail-mobile team!

I'm currently available for hire, to help you plan, architect, and build new systems, and for technical writing and articles. You can take a look at some projects I've worked on and some of my writing. If you'd like to talk about your upcoming project, do get in touch.
