    WhatsApp web requires the phone to be online.
    Also only one device can be paired at a time.
    Having a client for any OS is far superior than that .

    I use neither WhatsApp nor Telegramm. I thought, I'd get into IM business with tox, once I've got my hands on a Pyra.
    Corious, why is nobody talking 'bout tox here?

    Here text messages are automatically converted to MMS when they exceed 480 characters. (Or, if they contain even one "foreign" character, they get converted to MMS when they exceed 198 characters). That means almost every text message I've ever sent has been an MMS message because very little that is worth saying can be said with fewer than 480 characters.

    So no one attaches photos when texting anymore? Everyone I've asked around in person does it the same way. Is it a 30s plus thing? It just seems an extra step getting another app when this feature is built into practically every device.

    Tox is terrible at mobile and mobile network providers (where everyone is behind a NAT) which is a big problem. Also the main dev has been busy elsewhere for more than a year. People are still developing it in a fork though, but nothing goes upstream without the main dev’s approval.

    That's a feature of your phone, I think - not your network. I believe it's an android feature, and friends of mine than run android always check their messages are under three messages long (either 466 or 408 characters depending on whether you're 7-bit clean or not by my maths). Also, I think certain emoji will cause it to switch to MMS to deliver the graphical content, although I think the 198 character limit you suggest hints at EMS - I didn't know EMS did colour though!

    Personally, I rarely send any kind of multipart message. If I go over I'll go out and knock out superfluous words, and strictly unnecessary punctuation, then I'll start with switching to abbreviations. I've never needed to go beyond that yet personally.

    That paragraph was 256 characters which would blow the limit. Or, if edited:

    Code:
    Myself, I don't send long texts. If I go over, I take out extra words, extra commas, switch to abbrev. I've never had to go beyond that yet.
    That's 140 characters, so will fit in a single message even if it decides I need 8-bit chars. I even had to add an oxford comma there to add a hint to how the sentence structure worked when compressed like that. It takes a little longer to edit it down to length, but I use a phone with a hardware keyboard still, so I don't have to fight the autocorrect, and knocking out the text in the first place is quicker, and I can thus afford the time for review.

    I've never attached a photo to a text message, and I'm past my thirties. Of course, I probably text more now than I ever have before, but that's not saying much.

    Ed got a phone call from form action claiming the cases will be produced with the new material etc - fingers crossed that form action live up to the 'Action' in their name. Otherwise I guess ED will shift everything to the other more reliable outfit.

    Yes, and they said they'd do that tomorrow (not (TM) ), although I can't see a scenario where ED can find out whether they've done it or not the same day - we'll have to wait until either ED receives packages in the post or if he can get his Greek contact to pay a visit this weekend (if this even warrants that, given we're still waiting on board revisions).

    The only good thing about IRC imo is that it works on legacy OS's

    Why would anyone hand their communication to any nonfree SaaSS. Nothing beats IRC and XMPP.

    I actually prefer IRC myself as well. But it is still 2017, so between @ClockworkCoder, @guacamole and myself there are indeed three of us.
    Somehow, I doubt that I will live until 2051. So XKCD predicts that guacamole will abandon IRC in the coming years :)
