George Stibitz sat down at the kitchen table and began tinkering with his recipe. He had assembled batteries and flashlight bulbs to go with them, relay switches and a couple of wires, of course.
Now, in late 1936 or '37 perhaps, he put all these together to form a digital circuit that would add up binary numbers: the "Model K" adder. The "K" is, of course, for "kitchen table".
At the kitchen table or elsewhere, you may want to add up an email's text or image and a link. Mozilla Thunderbird has the circuitry:
›› Link to anywhere on the net freely and easily with Mozilla Thunderbird.
Do not water roots and soil. Drizzle the air and leaves instead with water (soft) out of a spraying bottle.
That's the rule, of course, for keeping the amazing tillandsia happy, healthy and—clean. Want to keep your inbox amazing, too, and clean? Outlook.com can help you by using rules to sprinkle categories on messages with precision:
›› If you add a category to all messages with "pepper" in the subject, why not have Outlook.com do it for you? Rules can apply categories to incoming emails automatically (for other criteria, too, including the sender's name and "Cc:" recipients).
He had a mechanical device from the 1900s sound like a computer game crashing in the early 1990s and said: "Ever since I'd been writing music, I was dreaming of getting rid of the performers."
Composing music largely unplayable by human hand and engaging the player piano instead, Conlon Nancarrow achieved that goal and a form of counterpoint not easily heard elsewhere with different tempi heard side by side. (That, of course, was not all he wrote.)
Now, you can engage an automatic player for your emails, too, and have Zoho Mail orchestrate archiving of messages to the tunes of their size and count, for example, — or different age limits side by side:
›› Do Zoho Mail a favor and let it archive old mail automatically to optimize your mail's storage. You can define specific archiving policies — based on message age, number, size, read and flagged status — for folders and define a default.
Bigarade orange seeds were cooked for what I'm eating now.
They went into a big pot together with the oranges' pulp and rind. An hour's cooking later, the seeds (in a small bag) came out and sugar was added to complete bitter orange marmalade from the shores of Italy's lake Garda.
The seeds help the marmalade jelly. In the finished product, they are unseen.
If categories help your emails coagulate into useful chunks in Outlook.com, should they, too, be largely unseen? If you don't think so, you can put them right in the bags:
›› See emails' categories instantly in Outlook.com by adding a column to the message list.
You need to remember when the sun went up in the morning and when it will rise again to tell the time. Babylonian hours divide the day into 24 periods, all the same length. The first hour does not begin at midnight, though, or at a fixed time, say, in the evening — but at sunrise. (Italian hours work just the same, but counting from sunset.)
To tell an email has arrived in Zoho Mail, you need not remember to check it at roughly equal intervals; Windows Phone Mail can let you know just about instantly:
›› Get emails delivered just about instantaneously and get notified, too, with push Zoho Mail in Windows Phone Mail.
Want only the good messages from a mailing list? Mozilla Thunderbird 24 can help a bit by letting you ignore the threads you do not wish to read with email (as you have been able to with NNTP newsgroups).
Want to email somebody with an email address using an internationalized domain name? Mozilla Thunderbird now lets you do it. Speaking of message delivery, replies to tweets are public now and, in IRC, long messages are no longer truncated but delivered in full (in parts).
›› Mozilla Thunderbird is a fully featured, secure and very functional email and chat client plus RSS feed reader. It lets you handle mail efficiently and with style, and Mozilla Thunderbird filters away junk mail too. (Windows, Mac, Linux)
Look not only for knots in the pendant cords and their subsidiaries; look for colors, too.
Black, for instance, stands for time in the khipu writing system used by the Inca people. Other colors, too, put the knots in certain categories.
Outlook.com does not have cords of this sort and colors — but it, too, lets you categorize:
›› Find all emails that belong together in one place, and find every message in all the places where it belongs without duplicating it. Outlook.com categories let you organize mail flexibly.
Poult is the word to use for a young turkey; mice newly born are called pinkies.
Let us now bring them together for an email, mice in depiction and turkeys in metaphor:
›› "Let's celebrate!" said mother mouse as the family gathered around the Thanksgiving table. Come join them and invite your friends, too, with this lovely Thanksgiving stationery. (Windows Mail, Windows Live Mail, Outlook, Outlook Express)
All the air you have is the one you brought. So, Alexander (the Great) did not dive with air and cock alone; he also took with himself into the diving bell and waters a cat.
The cat, the at least one version of the middle ages' Alexander Romance, would breathe in the tattered old air, purify it and exhale a mountain hut's early morning breeze.
Zoho Mail has feline powers, too. It can breathe in any old email, conserve it and still exhale a task (say, a trip to the mountain hut) in Zoho Tasks:
›› Many emails ask for things to be done. Rather than keep the messages themselves in your inbox as to-do items, you can connect them to new tasks — even more than one per message — easily right in Zoho Mail.
It was an experiment when a guest lecturer appeared before a mid-20th century University of Michigan psychology course. The students did not know this — though they were prepared: each had received a short biography of the lecturer.
After a class that included lecture and discussion, the students were asked to rate the lecturer. Opinions were divided, and Harold Kelley went on to publish one likely reason why. Kelley had handed out two kinds of biographies. They were identical except the one kind, for the class's one randomly chosen half, described the guest lecturer as "very warm"; the other, for the other half, had "rather cold" in that very space.
Now, if you set up different buckets for mail in Outlook.com, you'll have to use different descriptions as well. How about an experiment? Let's take little chances, though, and try "A pleasure to tackle", "Answered in an instant" and "From very warm people," perhaps, as folder names:
›› Add custom folders to store messages in Outlook.com. With sub-folders, you can set them up in a hierarchy to boot.
