It's sad to see the result that is this country after so many have fought for what is truly a dream and nothing else. I'm a foreigner having lived in the US for almost my entire life, and seeing the unfortunate direction on so many different levels that this country is speeding towards has me looking elsewhere for relief, meaning moving out of the US. I hope that people one day wake up and take action to correct the country's course, but it doesn't seem to be likely. All empires come to an end.

Submission + - SMS to email or IM (qecept.com)

They would prefer not to have the SMS messages come in directly to a dedicated mobile phone since there will be several reference librarians available per shift, and this would be cumbersome. A dedicated phone number would be ideal that would then forward the SMS to either an email address or IM account. We've discussed using the various solutions where a short code is used followed by a keyword that identifies us as the recipient, but again too cumbersome. The only commercial solution that I could identify is redoxygen.com's TextMe product. Is anyone aware of any other solutions, either turn-key or homegrown?"
