My Thinkpad burned out, so I am working off an EEE with Debian at the moment.

Comment on Claws Mail setup by Mark http://writtenandread.net/claws-mail-setup/comment-page-1/#comment-44100 Mark Tue, 17 Jul 2012 02:15:34 +0000 http://writtenandread.net/?p=440#comment-44100 Claws is great, but can drive a person crazy. I’m in the 3-pane layout that you use. Even with Clawsker, I can’t determine how to adjust pixel height for the message list pane. Clawsker doesn’t even use the term “message list” in its windows tab. Have you any ideas?

I am keeping an eye on Geary, another nice lightweight mail client intended for Elementary; but for the time being, Claws does what I need it to.

I am disappointed that I have not discovered this MUA earlier… especially since it is cross-platform. I could have been using this years ago.

In any case, its mid 2012 and all these tips are still relevant and entirely correct in version 3.8.0.

Now if only I could figure out a decent way to set up a unified inbox…

Comment on Conceptual layers of society by Nathan Smith http://writtenandread.net/conceptual-layers-of-society/comment-page-1/#comment-36100 Nathan Smith Sat, 31 Mar 2012 22:20:07 +0000 http://writtenandread.net/?p=638#comment-36100 I have experienced this to a certain degree myself. People have often asked me, “how do you know so much?” But once at a baseball game, where I was rifling off information about who-knows-what, a nearby fan asked, “wow, what’s it like being right all the time?” It was a big helping of humble pie.
