Marla and I have been using Thunderbird for our e-mail since spam became such a huge problem a few months ago. We suddenly started getting 6-8 spam mails per day after getting none for such a very long time. Thunderbird’s groovy junk-mail-protection is pretty good. (Nowhere near as good as SpamBayes for Outlook, but that’s a different story.)
I mention it as I spotted some new iconography for the Mac version of Thunderbird that’s up on // hicksdesign. I can’t tell you how I lust after Apple’s amazing design asthetics. The fact that this port looks better than the native Windows version hurts me deep inside.
Speaking of new design… we have a new one. What you think? XHTML 1.0 (transitional) compliant with the exception of a few missing ALT tags on images. Not a single table in sight! Except for those pesky old archives. Not sure if I’m up to the challenge of recoding a few hundred picture galleries. Time will tell.
