Starting to enjoy this blogging stuff, although I wish I had more time for it. And for a few thousand other things in my life. Almost done with my speaker’s notes for Automating Email.
Mouse gestures in Opera are cool. The right-mouse-button-down and left maneuver is so easy! (That sends the browser back to the last page.)
Just spent a half-hour writing a thoughtful email, using the built-in Opera email client (the mail started as a link off a web page). Hit the “Send” button when done. Error messages a-plenty. Something wrong in the configuration. But the text is gone. A waste of time. I hate computers.
Of course, given a little time to flail away, I found the mail, buried in the Opera Outbox. Don’t think I need another mail client, just yet. Next time, I’ll stick with Outlook.
Also spent some time with Blat http://www.interlog.com/~tcharron/blat.html and Blat.dll http://www.geocities.com/toby_korn/blat/. Great stuff, and the price is right – free! I’ll have to see if I can implement Blat here – I saw a mention on the Twiki site for it, and I don’t think that the native email logic is working here. I got an email when I became a registered user, but I am not seeing emails for changes to the site.
