I know how to make a Holy Bartender

I've made a new release of my sift IMAP utility, which now adds a few new types of rules:

  • Match message bodies against regular expressions.
  • Match recipients against regular expressions.

All the "searching" rules now allow negation too, so that "" and "!from:foo@bar" work as you'd expect.

Finally each of the searching rules, which require the download of the complete IMAP message, will use a local disk-cache to avoid undue overhead.

All in all I'm pretty pleased with the way the tool is being used in the wild. Each of these changes were the result of a direct user request, or suggestion.

10 years ago I'd swat furiously at bugs I thought had crawled up my trousers or shirt. Sometimes I was right, but, more often than not, I was painfully wrong. The possible reason for the sensation may be wrong, but 10 years later, I have a new reason to check.

The human body can not feel absolute temperature, but only the difference between the body temperature and the temperature of a touched object. So what you were feeling may have been, that the difference in temperature between your hand and the water decreased, which may have actually been that your hand was getting colder. :-)

I think you're slowly losing that limited stash of things they called marbles. Personally I lost all of mine a long time ago, so welcome to the club. It's very exclusive!
