The MUF actually got high enough that I made a contact on 15 meters - to South America even! Idk if all hams know about this site but it tells you the highest frequency likely to produce ionospheric propagation at 3000km. Very helpful for seeing which bands are "open"

Topic 1: IM NG

Historically, XMPP messages were routed to only one receiving device. That may be the device with the highest priority, or a particular device identified by the resourcepart of the jid (eg. vanitasvitae@jabberhead.tk/phone is a phone).

To improve the user experience in modern multi client scenarios, extension protocols like Carbon Copies and Message Archive Management were introduced to adjust the message routing to changed user expectations.

I've been screwed by the VC games, as have many of my associates. You can hold a fair percent of a startup, hold on for it to go public, and get less than an annual bonus at one of the Big Boys. The VC's and their fancy lawyering have sucked all the juice out: karma is a bitch.
