Loved the tweet this morning from Shane Moorhead, self described as a shoe maker, clock cleaner, puppet master, and shearer of sheep.
Anyone who has recently spent any period of time with a child under the age of five will no doubt be up on the topic of dinosaurs. Amazing creatures, and hard to believe they once roamed the earth. They came both big and small. This got me thinking.
If large email attachments are heading the way of the dinosaurs, could files have a dinosaur equivalent, and what might that look like?
Is a 5MB email attachment equivalent to a Stegosaurus? Would a 10MB attachment be a Tyrannosaurus? 20GB a Diplodocus?
I’m never quite going to be able to view email attachments the same way. In future when I read complaints on twitter regarding email attachments I’m going to substitute the dinosaur equivalents…
“What kind of person sends an email with a Triceratops attached? Three times.”
I could have some fun with this.
