How to Ignore a Thread in Mozilla Thunderbird

Wednesday April 16, 2014

The Montgolfier brothers, Joseph-Michel and Jaques-Ιtienne, flew a hot balloon of air. Everybody knows that. Largely ignored are, alas, Joseph-Michel's contributions to the incalculably useful hydraulic ram.
Oh, well. You are not among the ignorers, of course; you have threads instead to ignore in Mozilla Thunderbird:
›› Want to unsubscribe not from entire mailing lists but just from obnoxious threads? Wish you could avoid announcements about conversations on which you are carbon-copied but in which you are not interested (as well as the conversations themselves)? In Mozilla Thunderbird, you can ignore threads and sub-threads without throwing out the messages or lists entirely.

How to Set Up and Rearrange Folder Shortcuts in iOS Mail

Sunday April 13, 2014

The shoots underground to a bird—a finch or some such, I think—are a pasture. Better dig them up right away and swallow quickly with sauce the sparrow-grass.
"Sparrowgrass" is, of course, a neat way to rearrange the sounds and letters in "asparagus" (or "sparagus") to better resemble other words in the language. Sparrowgrass was popular through the 18th century.
Today, in lieu of rearranging "asparagus", how about rearranging the folders in your iOS Mail folder list? You get to pick and dig up those you favor most, too:

How to Have OS X Mail Copy Email Addresses Only (Excluding Names)

Thursday April 10, 2014

Leo Szilard and Albert Einstein imagined coils of wire ablaze with alternating current. They pictured liquid metal propelled by magnetic forces inside. They dreamed of a refrigerator without noisily moving parts.
Do you fantasize about OS X Mail copying email addresses without annoyingly attached names and brackets? Whole the Einstein-Szilard pump and refrigerator are not widely available today, you can get that clean and simple copying behavior quite easily:

How to Archive and Delete (Rather) Swiftly in iOS Mail

Monday April 7, 2014

The rice with its starch, the stone with its weight and, of course, the conditions without any oxygen ruined, as we have seen, the rice and did to the fish what also happens, for instance, to grain under human hands: ferment it. Rather than beer, though, vodka or, indeed, sake, the process produces an early form of sushi: preserved fish. It takes some 1-3 years for that fish to emerge.
If you want to see results faster for your actions, you can preserve messages in iOS Mail —and throw them away, too:

How to Forward Emails as Attachments by Default in Outlook

Friday April 4, 2014

"Bahuvrihi" means "much rice" in Sanskrit, and it means "bahuvrihi" in English.
For that literal meaning of "much rice" is but the beginning. Usually, "bahuvrihi" is used for a rich person in Sanskrit—or that aspect of its grammar of which "bahuvrihi" is an example. In English, it also means that kind of word, a compound that describes an aspect of the thing, person or characteristic while all the compound word's parts (as well as their sum) mean something different than the thing, person or characteristic.
English bahuvrihi include "bluebell" and "bluestocking".
Such compounding is, of course, not the default or most common way for words to work in English. "Forward", for instance, means just "help to advance" or "send on". You can do that in Outlook defaulting to the—certainly, if at all, only slightly highbrow—forwarding by way of attachment:
›› Do you always reach for the "Forward as Attachment" option in Outlook? You can set up Outlook so it does that automatically, and emails will be attached when you use the regular "Forward" button (or keyboard shortcut).

How to Schedule a Message to Be Sent Later in MailMate

Tuesday April 1, 2014

When Alfred Marshall, the foremost and British economist of the late 19th and well into the 20th century, picked up a book or article of mathematics, he always set a mental alarm no more than 15 minutes later—at which time he would pick up the scheduled book of "light literature" (such as Shakespeare or Ζschylus's Agamemnon).
The inspiration Marshall cites for this habit is interesting. Before we get too excited, though, let's schedule emails in MailMate (15 minutes or a day or a month, say, later) so we don't have to set a mental (or calendrical) alarm and can return to Shakespeare and mathematics soundly:

Passover Lamb - Free Email Stationery Download and E-Card

Passover Lamb - Free Email Stationery Download and E-CardThe one sweet thing needs to look like mud on the table for a Passover Seder; it should stick, too, like mortar. For it is as a reminder of the bricks the Jewish people formed (from mud) in Egypt and the mortar they used, of course, that charoset serves and is served.
On this Pesach stationery, I can spot no sweet paste; I see mud color, though, and the/a Passover lamb:

How to Forward an Email as an Attachment in Outlook

Saturday March 29, 2014

Pauli's 2nd exclusion principle precludes Wolfgang Pauli from sharing a room with an experiment conducted successfully. Something would always go wrong, and—legend has it—Pauli's colleagues aimed to prove it one day with a chandelier.
They rigged that chandelier (which hung into a lab room) so one of them could let it fall just as Pauli entered the room. When Pauli did enter the room as predicted, the principle was upheld—as was the chandelier: a pulley got stuck.
So, there you have it: the principle inside, in a way, the principle. How about an email inside, in a way, an email?
