Well, if you can’t trust the US Army, who can you trust?

i gotta see if i can find the letter from someone i don’t know wanting to know if i’m the jim ****** (he had the wrong last name, but it was close) who served with him in the U.S. Navy back in ?
i told him that yeah, it was me, but i was hopin’ he’d never find me. i told him those nights playing rear admiral on the poop deck were something i’d always remember but experimentation was a whole different story than a lifestyle. i ended with “didya ever think you haven’t heard from or saw him in 20 year for a reason?!”

I received no less than three of these emails in under 10 minutes and now I’m done. My inbox is my to-do list and I have zero patience for hogs coming in to feed.

Mail.app in Yosemite is broken for image attachments

Funny thing happened after I upgrade to Yosemite — clients started telling me to re-attach the image I had just sent them.

After doing a little testing I see that sent images are indeed no longer “attachments” to Yosemite’s Mail.app. Lovely… I spend at least eight hours a day in my email client (sending attachments, images, etc.) and Apple has totally and completely borked the app,borked something so basic.


Screenshots are of emails sent from Yosemite’s Mail.

Below is how regular attachments show up in Gmail (also Thunderbird and Postbox):

casual mystery psd attachment


Below is how image attachments show up in Gmail (also Thunderbird and Postbox):

casual mystery jpg attachment

The image renders as a thumbnail without an option to view or download the full size version. WTF?

The only thing you can do is right-click the image and open the image in a new window. Most people are gonna figure that out right away. Sure.


Further — emails with images don’t get the regular paper clip attachment indicator that other emails do in Mail itself:

mail only one attachment

When scanning emails for particular messages, that little paper clip was a huge time savor — not anymore.


I understand that some users have a hard time figuring out how to send large images over email and Apple was attempting to do something nifty with their whole Mail Drop thingy.

What they’ve really done instead is screwed users over. This implementation is broken and stupid. If you can’t figure out that you’re not supposed to send a 5GB file attachment, then that’s your problem. Apple shouldn’t be “fixing” crap like this for stupid users while also “breaking” non-issues for smart users.

I’ve resorted to sending my images inside PDFs because nobody can see them full size. Sometimes I’ll just upload them and send a link.

Both Thunderbird and Postbox look abandoned otherwise I’d switch back to one of them. I may give Airmail another shot.

i tell people all the time i’m a writer, not a speller. alternately, i tell ‘em i can spell stuff until i have to type it.

i had to take a quiz in a required meeting today. 13 common grammar mistakes. i would have bet that i got 100%. i missed 3 of 13.

i DID know when to use whoever and whomever though.

so i got that going for me.

I flub something in an email at least once a week.

Oh well. This one made me smile which is the first time I had since I’d been at work that day. :-D

Bad UI - Classify as Spam beside the Classify as Not Spam

classify as spam or not

Do you know how many times I’ve sent myself hundreds of spams because of this abomination?

Previously.
