My name is Adam Curry and this section will contain info about me in the future, as soon as I get a few other things done.
Clearly it's time for me to start taking this blog roll serious, as it is now at it's own url: blogroll.curry.com
My LinkBlog (updates very frequently)
One of the advantages of my MacBook Air Mountain Goat migration is that I am being exposed to new applications.
Whenever I need an app, I just grab whatever Ubuntu offers as the default before I go looking for an alternative, if needed.
Hallelujah, where have you been all my life!
Of course Thunderbird has been around for a while, but I hadn't tried it out in several years, and had pretty much become a slave to Apple's "Mail" program.
The list is too long to mention, but Thunderbird really ticks all the boxes for me.
Most impressive is how it archives all my email and folders from the server and stores it in a local database that has blazingly fast contextual search. Beautiful.
T-Bird's spam function is also outstanding. It outperforms all programs I've used before and even lets you train it's filters before you enabled the filing/deleting of spam messages.
The only weird thing I've noticed is that the default setup places your repliy to an email at the bottom of the original, which does not seem standard email practice. It is easily changed in the Account Prefrences pane.
Bravo to the Thunderbird team. You are kicking ass on helping simple Human Resources manage the biggest info glut in our digital lives.
