[wp-hackers] PhoneBlogz - blogging by phone, testers needed!

I've knocked up a quick Wordpress plugin that will let you view your
PhoneBlogz and manually post them to your blog.  It's basic at the moment
but I'd really appreciate it if someone could give it a go and let me know
your thoughts.

The plugin is at: http://phoneblogz.com/api/wp-phoneblogz-0.1.zip

To install:

 - unzip the phoneblogz.php file into wp-content/plugins
 - activate the plugin in the admin pages
 - under "PhoneBlogz configuration" enter your access code and pin number
that was e-mailed to you when you registered at phoneblogz.com

To test:

 - call an access number (http://www.phoneblogz.com/help/howcanipost.php)
 - enter your access code and pin number then leave a message
 - go to the PhoneBlogz Configuration page and click "Check for messages"
 - if all goes well your message should appear.  Click "post now" to post to
your blog

Of course there's tons of stuff to add:

 - automatic polling of phoneblogz
 - more configuration (category, post title, MP3 link or Flash player etc)
 - better status information

Let me know!


BTW if this is a dupe I apologize - some messages from me aren't making it
to the list :(
