Project 365 Day 115
I’m posting out of order because I almost forgot Monday’s photos. This what parts of my lawn look like right now. I love these flowers.
I don’t have much to say about the flowers or spring though. I am working on a different project right now. I changed my email address on Sunday and I’m still not done updating it with all the various blogs and companies I follow or use. I know many of them are on Facebook now, and I do use Facebook more and more, but I’m still attached to getting updates and notices in my inbox.
My inbox is now Thunderbird and I’m loving it. I finally figured out why I wasn’t able to use it with yahoomail. Yahoo charges a fee to forward email that way! That’s one reason I changed my address. I remembered I can use my internet service provider for email! The other reason I switched is that for a long time I’ve been uneasy relying on the yahoo servers for mail I want to save. Thunderbird makes it much easier to save mail.
I am learning to be more ruthless about what I save though. In my yahoomail I have dozens of folders with all kinds of stuff dating back to 2007. You know, “I might find it useful someday!” However, I rarely go looking for things in those folders, and much of the information is saved elsewhere on the Internet, easily rediscovered. I had hesitated leaving my yahoomail account in the past because it would be such a task to transfer all the information somewhere else. Now I realize the most important things to save are the irreplaceable emails from family and friends. I save the emails I write too. It’s part of being a family historian.
