After reading my wife's blog that contained an apologetic post about not writing in a while, I thought I'd catch up as well. It's been a busy, busy week at the office, and I'm just now getting to the past three days of email.
I will have to say, if you haven't picked up a copy of ThunderBird lately, you don't know what you are missing. It's up to version 1.05, and the minor improvements keep coming. I've even been following a thread for the ThunderBird 2.0 Roadmap that states that an OpenOffice-like Real Time Spell Checker is on the way.
