Sending/Testing MMS using XMPP
Recently I've been helping out with a fork of
mmsd (located here) since MMS is, unfortunately, a crucial thing I need working on a phone in 2021. Anyways, one of the painful things about hacking on
mmsd is that receiving a MMS for testing is a manual process. The simplest way to get an MMS is to ask a friend to send you one. Or perhaps purchase a second SIM to use in a second phone to send yourself one. After a while, your friends, family, people you just met, etc will stop responding to your requests to have them send you a MMS. Before you know it, you're sneaking off with your partner's phone while they are sleeping so you can get some work done. This is rock bottom.
