Hi all,

If you have a facebook account and would like to update your status when your 
only internet access is through pskmail then there is a way to do that. A 
thunderstorm broke my fiber connection during the night and I had no connection 
today (no phone or tv either as they come through the same fiber). Anyway, I 
did some pskmailing instead but realized I could not update my facebook status 
easily through pskmail. Or so I thought.

The solution for this is to use email to update that status. Facebook has a 
"secret" email address for every user, it can be used to email status messages 
and also images. To find out what the email address is you need to open 
Facebook Mobile Upload here:

Find your Facebook upload email address under Upload via Email.Do not share 
this email address with anybody; it allows them to post to your Facebook 
account... I'd use it only with compressed email. If someone should get it 
anyway then you can reset it at facebook.

Compose a new message and send it to the address above, the status message is 
the subject (body is ignored). If you have a really compressed image you would 
like to show also then just attach that (just keep it really, really, really
