Wow. Did someone shoot Alan Ralsky? Was there a sudden attack of good
taste that caused the hundred zillion offers to enlorge yr littul weenee

No. Tentacle.net's mailserver was down.
It's back up now. Reconfigured, too. Maildir is dead. (It deserved it.
Gah, one file per spam?). So on the one hand mutt (at least
in default config) doesn't work anymore. And the imap server seems to be being
funny. (I say 'seems to be' because it might be the chaos-side pine config
instead.) On the other hand... mail works now.
(Mail, for the nonunixy, is a command line interface that's only a tiny bit
more user-friendly than telnetting into the IMAP port of your server. It's
beautiful.) It doesn't support MIME. I love it. If it didn't already exist,
I'd have to write it.
