Hmmmm... Why did @SignalApp just take almost exactly 24 hours to deliver two messages? I'm glad that was an "I'm on time" and not an "I'm delayed" or "I have to reschedule".

p2p can be subject to little quirks if it's not coded properly. I've noticed similar effects on another app. For instance, if your IP changes, you'll miss some communications, and the other node may lose the data before it tries to resend. Increasing redundancy also increases bandwidth use, for everyone, so that may not be desirable.

I believe Signal has servers, even if they're just used to bounce stuff, but it's annoying if it's supposed to be a drop-in replacement for SMS...

We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation. Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
