send SMS messages using .ie websites

o2sms is a program to send SMS messages using the websites of Irish mobile operators. Despite its name, it supports all four major Irish operators - o2 Ireland, Vodafone Ireland, Meteor Ireland and Three Ireland

The program works by simulating a web browser's interaction with those websites. In essense, the program is really just a stripped-down specialised browser.

At the time of writing, o2 web accounts have 250 free web texts per month, Vodafone 300, Meteor 300 and Three 333. After sending a message, o2sms will tell you how many you have remaining.

The program comes in 4 flavours:

  1. A PERL module.
  2. A CLI script.
  3. A stand-alone Windows GUI application.
  4. An OS X Dashboard widget.

End-users should choose the CLI script (UNIX beardy types) or the GUI application/widget (Windows/Mac types). Developers should look at the module.
