I model stuff all the time. Usually at my desk, often while I’m out walking & nearly every time I’m out on the moto. I think through a problem I’m trying to solve or a thing I want created & mentally interate approaches followed by actual coding. (I’ve actually coded on the bike a couple times using my now-private voice-to-text service… that was wild) The past few days I’ve rapidly progressed through a series of approaches to the user interface (UI) & user experience (UX) that I want for a filesharing service I developed.

Base64-encoding images for use in web pages has been around for a while.
