PHP-GTK.eu End of Life and GDPR

If you're reading the PHP-GTK.eu community site these days, you certainly noticed that not a single piece of significant content was created since 2015, and not much since 2013.

Whatever this may mean for PHP-GTK itself is another issue, but for the site itself, it means it ceased to be relevant about 5 years ago, and it's time to move on for the site members. Since the site contains non-anonymous user, it will fall under the new EU GDPR regulations entering into force on 2018-05-25, and there is no point for me to spend time on evolving the site towards compliance when no one is actually using it.

So here is the EOL announcement: the site will be shutting down on 2018-05-24 and its data will taken offline.

A static version of the articles may be published again at some point here or elsewhere, but I wouldn't hold my breath on it. So if you have even some interest in the site content, be sure to copy/paste the pages of interest before it goes dark on 2018-05-24. Or contact me if you want a copy of the files and content, or check my blog for newer content.

Thanks all for participating, it's been a pleasure while it lasted.

knj SMS

screenshot for KNJ SMSThis application is another SMS-sender. It works via either Gnokii, a knj SMS gateway or the two danish providers CBB (www.cbb.dk) or Bibob (www.bibob.dk). It has a phonebook, groups of contacts, logs sent messages and have a quick-search-function.

Its default language is english - but I have also translated it into danish. If you want to translate it into other languages, it can easily be done via "poedit" (aptitude install poedit) - since it works via locales.
