Well, I got a new yacht, a million Euro from a Nigerian prince and a British passport out of it. Not too bad.

Hey guys. I'll use you as my go-to phone experts today.

At work, we have an iPhone that customers sometimes send multimedia messages (MMS) to. We want to automatically forward these to an email address. Is that doable?

* Person A sends an MMS to our iPhone.
* Either our iPhone, through an app or whatever, forwards the MMS to an email address of our choice or we intercept the MMS, through some sort of 3rd party software, and reroute it to the email address

Any ideas?

MMS, was that ever a thing? Can't those customers just e-mail it directly?

The most surprising thing about the snap election in the UK is, they managed to keep it a secret and it not get out until May officially announced it...

I don't think it ever got widespread use, as MMS was a lot more expensive than SMS (sometimes £0.50 for an MMS compared to £0.02 to £0.10 for an SMS). I think these days Whatsapp, Telegram and similar have pretty much wiped out usage of MMS.

That is interesting. MMS was, and still is, widespread in Sweden. It costs the same as SMS, and was therefore very popular before Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp showed up. These days it's not as big, but there is still use for it especially among the less tech savvy people.

It's always annoying when you send somebody a picture over iMessage, but they don't receive it (no signal or whatever) so your phone resends it as an MMS and costs you 40p or whatever. D:

I do remember MMS used to actually be quite good when roaming if you needed to write long messages, as you could send a long text-only MMS for 20p or something (I think this may have been on T-Mobile).

That also reminds me how it used to be cheaper, when I was on pay as you go, to send text messages in Europe anywhere but the UK - it was something like 8p for a text, due to the EU roaming cap, circa 2009, but 10p back in the UK!

These days it is quite rare that I send any standard SMS text messages at all. Almost all of my contacts that I message regularly have iPhones, so everything just goes over iMessage.

Speaking of roaming, the roaming fees in the EU are removed entirely by mid-June this year. That means you will text, browse the web, and call for the same price you do at home!

Of course, courtesy of Brexit, this won't matter to you.

Bathroom wall writing is always an experience. Just the other day as I was leaving a stall in the mall, I noticed some writing on the door. Two pieces of it, in fact. The bottom one, a very confident "service advertisement" that looked sure not to disappoint any customers; above it, an anti-colonialist/imperialist message. Truly a harmonious combination of different literary styles. :)

Usually I'm just baffled people walk around with suitable pens in bars. Wasn't ever tempted to scribble on anything that wasn't mine, but even I were, I wouldn't have had anything to write with me ^^

How was your journey? The people were friendly? The city was beautiful? Could you go again in Romania? Why?
One guy visited Brăila. He told:

Hey, we've not left yet!

And my hope is that we'll manage to greatly increase the Lib Dem membership in Parliament and end up with less of a hard Brexit, although I fear that may be a fantasy. But in that case we (Scotland) will probably end up independent anyway...

According to an online test (and those are always entirely reliable) I mostly side with the SNP anyway so I might just go there myself!

They journey to Galați was a little long, using an airport transfer bus from Bucharest... It was a most enjoyable trip though. I was out as part of a three man team doing some work with an organisation called Word Made Flesh. I am indeed looking to return next spring.

Sweden is so Swedish that weeks after a terrorist attack, our main concern on a national scale in a recently published poll is "increased antibiotics resistance". This is tied with "changes in climate" for first place.

Out of interest, where did Terrorism place on this poll?
