I always forget to put these lines into mh_profile. So out
they go into the cloud.

mhshow-show-image/jpeg: xv %f
mhshow-show-application/msword: antiword %f | more

And how many of you who used to think I was crazy for never sorting
or throwing away mail, now have gmail accounts which you never
clean out because you don't have to? Hmm?

Hah. I should've figure you still used mh/nmh. =)

I finally gave up on it a couple years back in favor of going (back) to pine for various reasons, but I do miss the command line syntax sometimes.

Haven't had any reason to switch, really, since the nmh switch there is decent mime handling for reading.

Never having to stress out about how much stuff is in my inbox frees up so many cycles I see other people wasting.

Ooh, I knew something like "antiword" existed but never had the motivation to find it. You're totally my hero: I just did "apt-get install antiword" and now I'm happy.


Is there an "antiexcel", too? My life would be complete ... :-)

Not sure on the antiexcel front, my method on that if I need it lately is opening from google spreadsheet in gmail, as a lot of my mail makes a stop through there.

But I have windows crap around so I can run visual studio and customer code anyway.

Damn you for getting me addicted to mh :(
