The Homely Mutt
Now that Sparrow is effectively dead many of its users will be looking for a new email client. If you’re not afraid of the terminal you may want to give Mutt a try.

Mutt certainly isn’t the prettiest email client around, and its setup/configuration process is one of the ugliest out there. But once you get it set up it’s got a lot of advantages over many other email clients.

In this post I’ll show you how to set up Mutt on OS X like I do.

Alpine and Gmail
After getting my Linux system updated and configured, I decided to install the Alpine mail client so that I could check my e-mail using a standalone client rather than having to use a web browser. While there are many text-based e-mail clients available (like mutt), I chose to use Alpine (developed by the University of Washington) since is an updated version of the classic Pine mail client and is offered under an Apache license. The primary benefit to using Alpine is that it is a light-weight, full-featured text-based mail client that is also easy to use and includes its own text editor (called Pico). The fact that it does not render HTML e-mail is an added bonus.

After looking through several websites on configuring Alpine, here is how I got it to work with Gmail via IMAP...

Backup Google Mail GMail / Home / BaGoMa
BaGoMa backs-up and restores the contents of a GMail account. It can restore all the labels (folder structure), as well as the flags (seen/read, flagged) of a message. It differs from other similar solutions in a few important ways:

It is Open Source Software. You can read the code to make sure your password and email contents remain private.

Some backup solutions force you to use only ASCII characters in your labels. BaGoMa has no such restrictions on label names. Specifically, foreign characters and '/' (the label hierarchy delimiter) are allowed.

BaGoMa is tuned to work specifically with GMail. Each message is only downloaded and saved once. Backup solutions that are designed to work with regular IMAP accounts will download each message multiple times (once per label) when used to back up a GMail account. That can significantly increase the bandwidth requirements and the amount of storage required for backup. Additionally, a faithful restoration of your GMail account might not be possible from such a backup.

BaGoMa requires your GMail account to be IMAP accessible. Check the Mail Settings and make sure "Enable IMAP" is selected under the "Forwarding and POP/IMAP" tab. In the "Folder Size Limits" section on the same tab, make sure the following option is selected: "Do not limit the number of messages in an IMAP folder".

BaGoMa never deletes any email from your account. A restore simply compares the contents of your local backup with the contents of your GMail account, and uploads any messages missing from your GMail account. It never deletes messages from GMail to make it match the local backup.

Google sometimes imposes limits on how much data can be transfered from your account. If you run into such a limitation, just wait a few days and try the backup again. BaGoMa will pick up from where it left off. If the temporary loss of IMAP access is critical to you, think twice before using this script. As far as I'm aware, web access to your email should continue unimpeded even if IMAP access is blocked.

Google Python Style Guide
Parting Words: BE CONSISTENT.

If you're editing code, take a few minutes to look at the code around you and determine its style. If they use spaces around all their arithmetic operators, you should too. If their comments have little boxes of hash marks around them, make your comments have little boxes of hash marks around them too.

The point of having style guidelines is to have a common vocabulary of coding so people can concentrate on what you're saying rather than on how you're saying it. We present global style rules here so people know the vocabulary, but local style is also important. If code you add to a file looks drastically different from the existing code around it, it throws readers out of their rhythm when they go to read it. Avoid this.

Google's Python Class - Google's Python Class - Google Code
Welcome to Google's Python Class -- this is a free class for people with a little bit of programming experience who want to learn Python. The class includes written materials, lecture videos, and lots of code exercises to practice Python coding. These materials are used within Google to introduce Python to people who have just a little programming experience. The first exercises work on basic Python concepts like strings and lists, building up to the later exercises which are full programs dealing with text files, processes, and http connections. The class is geared for people who have a little bit of programming experience in some language, enough to know what a "variable" or "if statement" is. Beyond that, you do not need to be an expert programmer to use this material.

24 ways: Rock Solid HTML Emails
Designing HTML email can be a tough pill for new designers and standardistas to swallow, especially given the fickle and retrospective nature of email clients today. With HTML5 just around the corner we are entering a new, uncertain phase. Will email client developers take the opportunity to repent on past mistakes and bring email clients into the present? The aim of groups such as the Email Standards Project is to make much of the above advice as redundant as the long-forgotten <blink> and <marquee> tags, however, only time will tell if this is to become a reality.

Although not the most compliant (or fashionable) medium, the results speak for themselves – email is, and will continue to be one of the most successful and targeted marketing channels available to you. As a designer with HTML email design skills in your arsenal, you have the opportunity to not only broaden your service offering, but gain a unique appreciation of how vital standards are.

Tesseract (software) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Tesseract is a raw OCR engine. It has no document layout analysis, no output formatting, and no graphical user interface. The sole format it processes is a TIFF image of a single column, from which it creates text. TIFF compression is not supported unless libtiff is installed. It can detect whether text is monospaced or proportional. The engine was in the top 3 in terms of character accuracy in 1995. It compiles and runs on Linux, Windows and Mac OS X, however, due to limited resources only Windows and Ubuntu Linux are rigorously tested by developers.

One of the most popular sports in the linguisitblogosphere (along with decrying coverage of language issues in the mainstream press) is proposing snowclones and then examining their usage using search engines like Google.

2. If I search for it on Google I find the following variants...
3. Of those, here are the few that occur most often...
