Facebook mobile is not working from mobile operators not in the US, I suppose.
I can’t even log on to m.facebook.com with my WIndows Mobile SmartPhone.
I can’t send status updates through SMS.
I can’t even send them by mail, or I get the following back:
So, now, I am updating Twitter.
Twitter can be updated with an SMS even from Europe. Or it can be updated with a bot running GTalk. Very easy, can do it from everywhere.
I then wrote a small command line application (based on the same “hack” as the one described before) that runs every five minutes from the scheduler on my server and keeps the two in sync.
I wrote it in C# as a Console application because that’s usually what I do when I want it to run it both on my windows machines and/or on my Linux server (with MONO). I already used this approach in the past and I found it to be successful. As long as you keep the application simple enough and check out the documentation for the implemented classes on mono, it runs without modification both on windows on the “real” .Net framework and on Mono on Linux. i just copy the executable and I am ready to go.
Not this time, though.
I am hitting what seems to be a bug in mono. I might be able to find a workaround, but I haven’t had the time to dig in the issue yet.
I posted some info about this on this forum.
