It's fucked up that they make dogs be cops

Aha! You fan configure K9 client to do serverside IMAP searches. It searches only in current folder, but it is much better than what I was using before!

By web standards gmail is ancient. But I don't know if any email client has copied their UI yet. ๐Ÿ˜”

Firefishy, a long time #OpenStreetMap mapper is trying to raise money to buy some scanned in maps of Namibia, to help #OSM mapping. Please consider donating!

Success! If I plug a USB sound card into my 7th Gen , it activates Voice View and will read books to me with a robot voice. ๐Ÿ™‚
The kindle has the text to speech software installed, it's just not clearly displayed.
