Thunderbird gets Twitter support via TweeQuilla proof-of-concept add-on

Use Thunderbird? Well, now you can use it with Twitter, too! At least if you're using it on Windows that is. The new add-on is called TweeQuilla, and it's just at version 0.1. TweeQuilla shows the tweets as messages in the message pane, and if a tweet includes a URL, it uses the preview pane to show that URL. It's a clever add-on since it's actually written in JavaScript, and Thunderbird...

The right tool for the job: LetterMeLater vs. FollowUpThen -- keep track of important email!

I send out lots of emails. I can't possibly remember them all, but in some cases, a forgotten email can come back and bite you. Your boss suddenly asks about that thing you promised to have done, and it's delayed because someone didn't reply to an email which you forgot you sent, and then the finger-pointing begins and it's all great fun (nothing I've ever personally experienced, of...

Take back disk space from your e-mail

While more and more people (including most of the staff at DLS) are starting to keep all of their e-mail online, using services like GMail, Windows Live Mail or an Exchange hosted account, there are still plenty of people who prefer using an offline mail client.

Gmails adds Spreadsheets option for Excel attachments

One of Gmail's handiest features has long been its ability to open a large variety of attachments with its "View as HTML" option. Now Google has taken it one logical step futher with an "Open in Google Spreadsheets" option when you receive an Excel file as an attachment. I checked it out and found it to be pretty convenient.
