@skquinn @ajroach42 Oh, yeah, I spaced that completely. I never did anything with that. I wish I had a use case. I'm reminded now of point-at-infinity.org/ssss/ which is different but related.

@ajroach42 @skquinn I worked with the folks at uucp.dataforge.tk to set up a tier 1 uucp node. It was an interesting exercise with lots of potential applications. In re NNTP, I played with the netnews setup at tildeverse; potential there, too. In both cases, you have an older, crankier, and less secure technology competing with modern methods that are more accessible. They are fun, but best suited to life in a secure bubble.

@maiki I love "implicit". You could also use some form of "suggest" or "include", but they don't do exactly the same job. You could also change perspective and use "infer" which might be a bit more accurate, really; I know what I infer, but I'm making a guess about what someone else implies.

@Cat I'm digging this SDF gopher archaeology you're doing.

@Cat @epl692 There's a bit about that on That Mitchell and Webb Look, iirc.
