So, the act of God known as Frances has caused me to change MUAs. I used to be a dyed-in-the-wool Pine 3.96 user, but the sysadmin upgraded, and I had to adapt to Pine 4.x. Then, Frances rolled through, and the machine that is the MX for werken.com (where I .forwarded everything) lost power for most of the day. So, I removed my .forward on the codehaus.org box, did an
apt-get for Pine, and discovered that it doesn't support DJB's Maildir stuff which we use at the haus. So, I've now fired up and am trying to learn Mutt (meaning that I'm un-learning a decade of Pine keystrokes). This is also a subtle reminder that it's still polite to send plaintext email wrapped at 72 columns.
Also, it's not much fun climbing upon your 80-year-old house in the driving rain to tie a tarp over the roof the previous owners described as having "no leaks". Sure, depending on the definition of "no".
