Here's what I think would be very cool. (I use linux). Altme running as
a system tray, with an option feature allowing one to
1)subscribe to a topic
2)have an optional and unobtrusive popup to signal a reply to such a topic
- ubuntu's adept_updater as an example
3)Mirror altme topics to email!
that way us mutt or pine users to can exploit those interfaces'
extreme agility to organize and manage messages and we
can also have altme's modernity and proprietory "rebol-ness"
And shouldn't be OS-specific.....
Be the best of both worlds I think.
I am concerned tho - that having too many "channels" might work to
dilute and disperse the rebol community - which is admittedly pretty
small as it is...
BTW: I won't be able to follow this thread or reply for two weeks.
My ML filter starts in one hour - since I will be traveling, but I
will be able to receive personal email (intermittenly)
