Message in a bottle

Message in a bottle @ wikipedia

A message in a bottle is a form of communication whereby a message is sealed in a container (archetypically a glass bottle, but could be any medium, so long as it floats and remains waterproof) and released into the sea or ocean. Such messages are not intended for a specific person, but to end up wherever the currents carry them. Because of their simplicity they are often associated with people stranded on a deserted island, attempting to be rescued. However, many people release such messages for pleasure, to see how far their message can travel and to make new friends. They are also used for scientific studies of ocean currents. The phrase “message in a bottle” has also come to refer to any message sent without an intended destination.

I agree. This certenly is another medium

so long as it floats and remains waterproof
I’ve never tried if my laptop or the server actually floats…

If you are reading this, the message has at least ended up somewhere

Yes, I do feel a bit like Im stranded on a deserted island sometimes

This message had no intention, nor any destination
