Hi! Do you remember blogs? Well, this used to be one. Now it just serves as an archive for my multiple Twitter accounts.

18 April 2004

Well, it looks like my telco’s WAP gateway doesn’t acecpt <input type=”file”> and I can’t upload directly, and freely, images from my phone. Makes sense: it would allow you to do too much for free.

Still have the MMS option, but that means I’d have to make a server-side script to fetch the pictures, and… I’d pay for each upload. I don’t like the idea of being billed every time I blog.

Not to mention that typing something, even a short post, in a microscopic <input>, without T9 and with a typing system that contradicts the phone’s, is just about unusable.

It’s a pity that the one thing WAP would be good for, text blogging and chatting, is sabotaged by the browser software.

Oh, and, for the paranoids who are interested in the subject:

The Mobile Access Gateway Server always sends the end-user’s subscriber ID in each HTTP request to your Web server. The data (along with some other environment variables) is stored in the HTTP request header.
