Building sylpheed over and over again today. I think I like it better than evo, since it integrates with jpilot, and takes up a fuckload less resources. Sure, it’s not as slick in some areas, but it works, and seems to work well.

if I can get the dev branch building, I’ll be happy. The default sylpheed tree ssl support only builds on 7.3, not on Phoebe. But th edev branch seems to want aspell >=0.50 which pheobe doesn’t have yet. AQnd as we all know, I need a spellchecker.

off to upgrade aspell!

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.
