It's not just you that doesn't get it, Tim.
I've run it. Set up my own world for a play. Nice toy.
I can't list or join any other worlds though. So far it looks like a
nifty toy but I'm really just not getting why on earth it's a good
idea to have moved the mailing list discussion onto this - especially
when there's no actual procedure to 'join' and participate.
Looks like a nice demonstration of Rebol but pretty much useless to
actually serve as an interactive forum in my view. Unless there's
loads of hidden complexity that I'm just not seeing, not to mention an
explanation on REBOL.com of how you get on this thing and how you get
a user/pass for the Rebol world...
On a more general note; regarding my earlier query about SMTP
authorization with Rebol, a few were good enough to point out the
esmtp scheme and so on. I've just got around to trying it out and,
well, it basically doesn't work. Cryptic error messages about some
problem in the AUTHing. It's talking to a Sendmail server as far as I
know. If it was just normal Rebol code I'm sure I could hack it but
it's written as a scheme and I really just don't 'get' how it works.
Isn't SMTP with auth really quite a useful thing these days? Has no
one else tackled this? I really don't want to have to write an SMTP
sending function just to do this.
