Signal to Noise

[ #33530 ]

Email used to be a simple text* channel for the exchange of ideas. Of course, over time, like many channels the signal to noise ratio approaches zero.

I think the email I just received is a sign of impending doom. A simple message, just three short paragraphs containing 201 words. Unfortunately the alternative HTML rendering with leaf motif stationary increased this 1,222 byte message to 33,547-- 96.35% of the message was fluff.

* I remember the joys of UUDECODE.
