Yes Colm.... errm I might point out, I'm empolyed as quote a 'Junior
1. I have no choice in the mail client I use.... tough.
2. I am trying to get the damned software to work... my ad-hoc approach to
facets of sysadmin ... which I am not officially employed to do.. has in the
past produced results like getting my winmodem to work with linux drivers...
by adding the correct entry to the inf file... and what is the problem with
One of the great things about open systems like linux is that it enables you
to tinker with the internals... or perhaps rewrite them if you see fit..
some people might call this ad hocery.. some might call it freedom.
3. While I appreciate your input on this... like I say I have no way of
controlling the mail client's I use... I'm not senior enough and to be
honest it is the most pedantic irrelevant thing to me right now.... if all
operating systems were run by your criteria..... then it would be the case
that as the standard on the desktop is Windows... everyone would be required
to use windows.
I quote the way that I do, but unless you have a polite constructive
suggestion for me... which in the free world I'm not required to adhere to
as you aren't my mother nor my father and even if you were I still wouldn't
adhere to arbitrarly imposed pedantic egomaniacial constraints on quoting
sytle... we were talking about mailservers... what the hell is how my mail
client formats responses anything to do with anything... if you don't like
it you don't have to read it, you don't find me trying to impose constraints
on you vis-a-vis your own quite rude and self important opinions on others
so kindly extend me the same curtosy.
For future reference when you want someone to do something for you... the
most expeditious way to get it done is not to insult them first... no.... in
fact this actually operate contrary to the supposed goal of getting what you
want... instead live with it or try asking nicely...
Why exactly should I change around the configuration of my mail client to
suit YOU when you can't even say something even remotely curtious to me?
And tell me why should I care if you have opinion one about me, my
sysadministration, my programming skills or the price of cabbage?
You seem to be suffering from the delusion that I care ... correction .. I
Furthermore, you might like it if you and people who used distrobutions you
regard are adequate were the only people who used Linux .... some sort of
Darwinian Operating system pesudo-intellegentsia, but sadly in the real
world.. I could care less, bottom line my box is configured.. it works.. it
has save my company money... so insult my sysadmin skills till the cows come
home.. I can assure you we're laughing all the way to the bank on that one.
