Half of today, I've been trying to debug thunderbird. I can't read my mail with it. I have a bunch of unread mails on foss.in lists which fail to show up on the listing. This server is not available to the outside world and therefore I cannot actually get anybody else really interested in this. Here's as far as I've got today - any IMAP4v1 gurus are welcome to jump in and help.

* OK IMAP4rev1 server ready (1.48.6)
1 login "gopalxx" "my-password-is-not-for-you-h4x0rs"
1 OK LOGIN completed
2 select "foss.in"
* 1089 EXISTS
* OK [UNSEEN 1072] Message 1072 is first unseen

2 OK [READ-WRITE] SELECT  completed; now in selected state
3 UID fetch 1:* (FLAGS)
* 1 FETCH (FLAGS (\Seen) UID 29427)
* 2 FETCH (FLAGS (\Seen) UID 29428)

* 1072 FETCH (FLAGS (\Recent) UID 34095)
* 1073 FETCH (FLAGS (\Seen) UID 34119)
* 1075 FETCH (FLAGS () UID 34159)
* 1089 FETCH (FLAGS () UID 34357)

Till here it all looks perfectly ok. Then it starts going bad.

4 UID fetch 34095:34357 (UID RFC822.SIZE.....)
* 1072 NO  message error; can't fetch that message

5 logout
* 1073 FETCH (FLAGS (\Seen) RFC822.SIZE 7658 ...)

And thunderbird, refuses to work at all...

The code - nsImapService.cpp, ain't pretty at all... But I can try debugging - devel-power !!!.

Check out the following mail header, I just noticed while debugging Thunderbird.

Coincidence ? ... I think, yes.

Felt like reading something while on the way home. Result, bought two new books for slumber reading.

And of course having read Guards! Guards! earlier influenced this purchase quite a bit. The night when I read that, I had dreams of a wall glowing with four shadows in the soot (ala Shrek) and the sound of wall crumbling, only to be held together by a thin sheet of vitreous melt on the surface.

Jingo! so far is AWESOME. And btw, before anyone asks me - my books invariably end up being owned by my sis. This one's prolly going the same way :)

Added static rendering support for the tags plugin for pyblosxom. Changeset is (-77, +113) and you can get the modified code from here.

Maybe next, I'll build a tag cloud in Javascript ?

Tag ! you're it.
