Tried to frob my mail-summary-displaying script to use Mail::Folder instead of doing it by hand. Of course I tried to do this when I was feeling hideous and not in any condition for programming so I totally fscked up the script. Thank heavens for backups.

Yes, I know there's lots of scripts out there that do this but this one's mine and it does some slightly weirdass stuff like getting my voice synth to announce who's writing me mail, etc. Besides, it's a good easy way of getting back into hacking. I'll fix it tomorrow when I'm feeling better.

Finally fixed my webcounters today. It's nice to have some spare brainpower. They've been broken for months and I hadn't got around to fixing them. Must remember to put it on my code page tomorrow.

Updated gfr (mostly documentation changes) and uploaded that this morning. I'm really getting back into this coding gig.

I love hacking away at scripts. One day I'm going to get my act together and write a cross between slrn and Mutt using Perl and about a zillion Perl modules. It's going to be called PMinor. One day ... *wanders off into dreamland*
