I’ve been hearing some rumblings that the Mozilla Foundation is moving resources away from Thunderbird, an email client that I’m a fan of. It’ll still be an open-source email client, and it’ll probably still rock, but I figured that I’d have a look around for some alternatives just in case.
I’ve been trying out Geary which bills itself as “a beautiful modern open-source email client”. I must say, it’s kinda cool, lighter than Thunderbird, but there is one feature that is missing that I would kill for right now: encryption.
From a brief glance at IndieGoGo it looks like they’ve raised some tidy funding so PLEASE Yorba – get a GnuPG plug-in on the go!
Apparently it’s coming so I’ve got everything crossed that it’ll happen soon.
Already my mind is awash with reasons I shouldn’t. How will I reach people? How will people reach me? How will I promote the various things I’m involved with that are suitable for public consumption?
That’s just the addiction. I’ve gone through the same thing every time I’ve tried to quit smoking. This time, I call bullshit.
The people who need to find me, will. The people I need to find, I will find. For the promotion side of things there is Twitter and this website. No longer will I sit, alone and drunk, screaming impotent fury into a loo-block-blue website while no-one takes a blind bit of notice.
Fuck Facebook. I’m outta there.
Well, I’ll try to go a week without it and see what happens.
