Closing Some Tabs

I'm closing out some 2014 tabs, so have a few useful links.

Want to make a game, but don't know how to get started? Sortingh.at is a great step-by-step resource.

Using Google Apps-for-business and group mail is bouncing? Follow these instructions to switch to "proper" groups.

Think you can recognize your developers from their commit messages? git-game turns it into a neat game where you try to figure out whose entire message was just "fuck" the most often.

Want a machine that make tortillas at the press of a button? I DO. flatev is the answer.

just added a quick little hack over on my code site for finding out which imap folders are using up your quota

postbox seems interesting. a thunderbird fork with some gmail-like features. anyone using it? [update] it insists on downloading my entire (IMAP) inbox before it lets me look at any mail. my inbox is huge. not going to wait. fail

i've been going back and forth with dominic sayers for the last couple of weeks on RFC-based email validation. we both have php functions (mine, his) that pass a huge (and esoteric) test suite. who says RFCs are dull? (hint: they are)

i meant to link to this forever ago - why we need standards in html email. good stuff

one names spells entertainment! my mailbox is so dull in comparison

i've coded an experimental version of an RFC 2822 address parser to update the RFC 822 version.

cvsspam looks pretty cool. we're currently using a perl-based cvs logger at flickr, which is workign well for us - viewcvs links instead of inline diffs. otherwise the mails would be huge.

i present a short lession in turning RFC BNF into perl regular expressions: Parsing Email Adresses in PHP

outlook express has been forever broken for multipart/signed messages (the text portion is never inlined, so the message appears blank). is there a way to fix this?

1st April, 9:26 am

gmail goes to infinite storage. but once april 1st is over, they'll be back to 2GB.

just came across this brilliant piece of zefrank advice which i haven't seen for a while. bite me, jackass.

3rd March, 2:13 pm

i've been looking for this forever - oe-quotefix makes outlook express stop top-quoting, put a proper attribution line and indent without wrapping everything. perfect!

sometimes i think microsoft is trying to spite me. i mean, wtf? what was mime invented for?

4th October, 5:46 pm

i'm going to give spamnet a try and see if it'll work with my setup. hmm
