Thunderbird mark message as read after reply

Thursday, October 14th, 2010

Well it appears I am not the only person having a problem with thunderbirds marking emails as read.

This is how I use thunderbird

I have disabled the “Automatically mark message as read” functionality so that I have to set messages as read.  If I don’t do this many emails were being marked as read when I hadn’t really finished reading them or replied to them.

In my case I classify an email as read when I have replied to it or clicked the read button (they require no reply)

I just want Thunderbird to set the read flag when I reply to the email.

Also I normally view the email in the “Message pane (F8)”

After installing

I get exactly what I want.   Thunderbird now sets emails as read, when I reply to the email.

Horizon dumbing down

Friday, June 5th, 2009

I used to love Horizon, it was one of my favourite programs on TV.    Something strange has happened over the last few years though.   They have stopped presenting both sides of the arguments and simply try to sensationalise the topics they cover..

There seems to be a trend of so called ‘scientific’ programs dumbing down.   Horizon has also started to do dramatisations about natural events where it appears to be full of ‘what ifs’ and ‘could occurs’.

It does appear that I’m not the only one who feels this way.

If the BBC is funded by tax payers shouldnt we have a say on how we want the programs made.

I like what this says

cj7 download,3117,The-Presidents-Guide-to-Science,BBC-Two–Horizon

If this is anything like the recent crop of Horizon programmes it will have been dumbed down to sub moron level so probably just right for an American President (although I doubt he will ever see it). Horizon used to be the BBCs flagship science programme but not any more.

Simply google for Horizon dumbing down and read what everyone thinks, well everyone outside the BBC and BBC America by the looks of it.

Even wikipedia has entries about the dumbing down.
