you normally don’t have to cc the original sender. At least not me, when I’m writing on list I’m also reading it.
Just a reminder: Tomorrow is Towel Day.
I’ve been writing about the this big German Linux event for quite some time know. It took a long time but they did it. They accepted one of my talks. So I’m going to talk on how to implement IPv6 in your network at this year LinuxTag in Berlin.
I only have 30 minutes so I guess I’ll have to skip the basics. But WTF, according to some people in their program comity everybody knows them anyhow.
I’ll prepare the slide in English. I offered them to give the talk in English or German but at least according to their website they didn’t decide about the language they just used what I entered into their database.
to a mailing list write a new mail and don’t reply to an older posting, change the subject to something completely different and send it. There is this think called references in the mail header which allows decent mail user agents to build a tree structure of all the mails belonging to one subject. This makes it very easy to see which mail is an answer to which previous message.
Yes I know. For those of you who use some group ware client or web mail this is a totally new and revolutionary concept. But it helps reading many high volume mailing lists and even allows time to answer.
An btw: please shorten the the text of the mail your answering to to the relevant parts and put your answers below or inside the quoted text. And only use plain text and not HTML.
… or use another email address for mailing lists. I just got another “out of office” reply after posting to a mailing list. I don’t care whether someone is in the office when reading / posting mailing list.
Some time ago, after my usual talk about IPv6: “We’ll implement IPv6 in 14 years. To be exact at the beginning of July. It’s the date my college is going to retire”
Every now and than I read that people are still using ethereal. Ethereal is dead for more than 3 years (also the website is still up and running). Wireshark is the successor of Ethereal. I urge everybody to stop using Ethereal and start using Wireshark. Besides many new features there were several serious security bugs. (Okay, there are probably several new security bugs, but they’ll hopefully get fixed upon discovery.
To find out why Ethereal died and Wireshark was created check out the Wireshark FAQ
