SMS reminders for Remember The Milk in Australia

I've just managed to set up SMS reminders for Remember The Milk - something not currently available in Australia:

To do this you will need one extra (but free) service - twitter. Now, the instructions:
  1. Get yourself a twitter account if you don't already have one.
  2. Go to and set up twitter direct messages for reminders.
  3. Then go to and set up your mobile - making sure you chose "Direct messages" under "Device updates".
Whenever and RTM scheduled reminder is direct messaged to you twitter account, you will get it on your mobile via SMS. Obviously you will also get any other direct messages sent to you via SMS so you could use the "Sleep" settings on the twitter devices page to filter the messages to a window of time that matches when your RTM reminders are sent.
