Not so Hasty there! Thunderbirds are go!

You may have read earlier that I had written a funky script to remove email that I’d never ever read from my inbox, and it had all gone horribly wrong when I passed a null string into the function and it deleted the whole inbox along with 700+ messages in it. Disaster to some extent! Then I sat and had a think about how long it would take to import all 700+ headers every time Thunderbird wanted to read my inbox.

I used to be able to switch albums on the iPod at the end of every day, a quick sync and new music or podcasts for tomorrow – holidays are a great time for catching up on podcasts! Alright I know that with the EEE the hard drive probably couldn’t hold all my music, but I’d be willing to invest in a light external USB hard drive (as recommended by), as I only have a 2GB Nano. I’ve read about getting iTunes working under Crossover, or Wine…. Continue reading »
