Getting back into the blogging habit has been pleasant, even if my low opinion of bloggers hasn’t changed over the years.
Remy wrote a few weeks ago and said the Datamini is still at work, assisting with household chores, in a manner of speaking. You can ask if you want details. 😉
Remy also has a few tools available on his site, including a rather nifty e-mail local backup tool: NoPriv.py.
The project page has all the information you need to set it up; edit one file for your account information and it will spin away happily and do your bidding.
Be forewarned, if you have a lot of e-mail to sync, it’s going to take a while. I think I had to wait a couple of hours just to back up my Sent messages out of GMail … which says little about the total volume accumulated over the past five or six years. 😯
But it converts everything into simple HTML pages, which means everything is accessible from elinks or another text-only browser.
Clever. This one has my stamp of approval: A big gold smilie for NoPriv.py: 😀
