Read emails in a news reader
Authored by: mjb on Mar 19, '08 01:35:49PM
An MD5 hash would be suitable for an obscure address/URL. Something like the following shell command will generate one:
dd if=/dev/urandom bs=512 count=4 2>/dev/null | md5
The above will use 2kb of random data and hash it using md5. You should end up with something like:
c4748be98c81449efa16c9ed1fa90d0a
Which would become:
c4748be98c81449efa16c9ed1fa90d0a@mailbucket.org
and
http://mailbucket.org/c4748be98c81449efa16c9ed1fa90d0a.xml
I have not tested such a value with mailbucket, but there's no reason it wouldn't work.
