Published on in 💭 Thoughts

This semester I have two lectures each week (not in total obviously), each one of those taking 3 hours from 4pm to 7:15pm on Mondays and Tuesdays.

Email based Messaging (Delta Chat and COI)

Published on in 💭 Thoughts

There are tons of messengers out their, but they all share the same problem.
