I kinda feel bad for Yahoo Mail. They do a damned fine job. Their UI is nice (nicer than GMail) and it’s pretty and has every feature you’d ever want. But I use it as my junk throwaway email account, and no one wants to be seen with a @yahoo.com address despite their objectively good product that they seemingly can’t even give away for free. Poor Yahoo Mail.
I still do the “buenos noche amigos” thing that Remy used to do when NESN does the SAP instructions. 🥲 #redsox
@md ofc if you found yourself in need of such a thing, you’d probably be screwed because you’d no longer have access to an App Store to download it. It’s just always seemed weird to me that our super powerful devices in our pocket can’t act as servers or nodes in a mesh more often. They’re all, by and large, dumb clients attached to a server somewhere. They’re capable of so much more than that.
Every once in a while I get this idea in my head to make a mesh-based chat app that works over Bluetooth, taking mobile networks and even wifi out of the picture, end to end encrypted obvs. Something truly peer to peer that couldn’t be spied on with no central server and no metadata to trace. But I’m at best a mediocre programmer with little free time so nothing will ever come of it.
Whoa Piveta coming out in the 9th? I don’t remember the last time I saw a pitcher pitch an entire game. #redsox
