Not Fidonet, because the world has moved on, but Briar is designed
with a similar store-and-forward architecture as a delay-tolerant
messaging system with strong security guarantees, intended to work
across whatever transport is available in the moment for exactly this
kind of situation. While we're a ways from being ready for use in any
kind of high-risk (or even low-risk-but-real) scenario, we've got an
early alpha out if you want to play with it. We're also looking for
more help, especially from developers (Java; Android, Swing, JDBC,
concurrency, etc.); we're happy to mentor less-experienced developers.

Ideas are my favorite toys.
