1) I cannot figure how is it implementable
2) Good idea. Tested but the http client of sms-machine is raw and not
follow meta refresh.

My DIRTY UGLY solution: my IC page sms-send is called with looping unix
command line wget
and inside of this page i test the database for new incoming sms and when
there is a new one
i post to the sms-machine the outgoing sms.
Now i test it better but, for now, seems work.

The problem is my ignorance in perl language, it is not the best solution
use IC tags
or scripting languages triggered from http client to solve these problems.

Thanks to all.
