    Hi there!

    I'm writing some simple software for interacting with camera phones,
    and I need to see what the photo sharing emails look like from
    different service providers. If you have a camera phone, please send
    a photo to this email address: [email protected]

    Thanks a bunch!

    I think that before anyone sends you a picture, you should probably go into
    deeper detail on this simple software.

    The software is called "How to get people to flood the email inbox of someone
    you don't like with large binary attachments." Although this idea is not a new
    one, I must admit this is one of the more clever implementations I've seen...

    I agree... not bad... waste of time. Personally I would have dressed up the
    site a bit more:

    http://www.ronin64.com/

    Looks like a joke so must be.

    Not a joke--just a site that is not set up to be a public site. The
    domain is used by the developer doing the testing and resolves to a
    server he has set up. I have posted further information on
    Howardforums.com.

    Re: help me camera phone users test new software

    Hi All,

    I posted a similar message before and was met with some skepticism on
    part of people naturally wary about "generic requests". People were
    skeptical before because the e-mail address did not have any
    accompanying website associated with it. The new e-mail address below
    for submissions should address that issue.

    We are looking to test a feature we are working on here that will take
    a photo sent to an e-mail address from a camera phone (smart phone, or
    PDA) and post that photo into a user's account (similar to a moblog
    except that we are syncing these in an application not just posting
    them).

    So if you have a camera phone and would like to help, please send a
    photo to the following e-mail address:

    [email protected]

    For the skeptical or just plain curious you can see that there is a
    site associated with this domain. You can even sign up for a trial
    account if you want to see the software.

    Thanks for any help with testing,

    Paul
