A few weekends ago, while hanging out with several MIT friends, we got to reminiscing about the good old days of athena (which I’m discovering is now debathena — lord knows what a cluster looks like these days or if undergrads have ever heard of a quickstation), and of text-based email clients, such as Pine, Elm, and, my personal favorite, mutt. I was speaking — nay, boasting — of my former mutt prowess, and inquired of folks whether they had every seen an integration of mutt with gmail. We all assumed that, google being google, someone had to have done it at some point; and, lo and behold, a quick search reveals that, yes, someone has.
This is definitely going on my list of things to try. Man! Those keystrokes. Motor memory being what it is, I can only assume it would all come back to me, in the same way and with the same feeling I get when I hear a phrase like blanche yourself onto or Bartholomew Squeak or hope alls well with you or find myself trying to explain cons to someone or remember not to break the abstraction barrier. Oh man. That’s a complicated feeling.
