I have new template-driven database-backed project and category page generators for kvance.com. My perl grows stronger! Little things are missing. It generates thumbnails automatically! I can't wait to get this done, so I can post little scripts and patches to kvance.com, and have linkable pages for them.

There has been some really good television on. Doctor Who 28x03 (School Reunion) was amazing. I mean, Rupert Giles Anthony Stewart Head as an evil schoolmaster was just icing on how good that was. Also, Veronica Mars 2x21 (Happy Go Lucky) was a high point this season. They have the mystery stuff working well in season 2, but I've really missed that angsty paranoia that was so plentiful in the first season. It was back. I can't imagine what the cliffhanger is going to be next week.

Don't get me started, it's IMAP servers that keep all your email! Most clients are configured to delete mail off POP servers, and if Keith had his password and email address, he wouldn't have needed access to Woody's computer anyway.

Aside from that, it was a great episode. :)

Re: Whoops

If he had several computers all accessing a single POP account, then no single computer would be able to pull the messages off the server. And while I've never met an ISP that just *deletes* your messages after time elapses, maybe they exist.

For the whole already having the password thing, you have to stretch a lot more. The account may not be directly accessible from the internet. It could be behind a VPN, or otherwise need a piece of information like a private key that is only stored on Woody's computers.

I had already stricken the whole thing from my memory. I expect non-technobabble from a show that previously had a reasonable argument about whether Ubuntu or OS X is better.
