     33 <brendan> so are we thinking about a 1.5.10 soonish, or did my CVS attack scare it away?

     71 <Rado> MuttGuide isn't complete yet, but !/Folders is a core part which _exists_ because of its importance for understanding the folder management.
     72 * Rado . o O ( and me being tired of repeating stuff all over again ;) )
     73 <Tek-69> ohhhh excellent use of thought bubble. :)

     79 * k-god tries to think of the one mutt enhancement he'd like...
     80 <k-god> OK. Two. One:  A backscratcher.
     81 <brendan> I believe muttng has one of those
     82 <k-god> Two:  An implementation of the Internet Face Stab Protocol for MS Outlook lusers.
     83 <brendan> and I think outlook does that on its own :)

     86on mutt-users, markus reichelt:
     87{{{
     88 Even God did not use UTF-8, he made Moses use ASCII.
     89 
     90 !<hint>There was a reason.!</hint>
     91 
     92 If in doubt, use ASCII. If you want to reach as many people as
     93 possible, use ASCII. etc.
     94 
     95 I think God wrote that draft in UTF-8 but he had the brains to
     96 actually apply a send_charset kludge so that Moses understood what he
     97 was to write, so that the vast majority of readers unterstood what he
     98 wrote. By doing that God got all the suckers asking about the special
     99 meaning of those strange ?$B!G characters in his commandments off his
     100 back. Clever guy, isn't he?
     101 
     102 Which leads me to the conclusion that the 10 Commandments as we know
     103 them in fact are only a revision... *cough, Scotty, now would be a
     104 good time*

     108 * Rado hates himself and Myon for picking up nonsense and wasting time on it.
     109 * Rado feels like quoting himself again.

     112{{{
     113 <pdmef> Maybe I should write some more mails to mutt-dev, too. The manual is, hmm, I don't have a non-adult word for it... :/
     114 <init0> pdmef: the word is autogenerated ;)
     115}}}
     116----
     117{{{
     118 <redondos> Everyday I am more convinced that mutt is as powerful as the user can configure it to be.
     119 <redondos> That also means that it is as stupid as the user can be. (me, in this case :)
