International Rescue

Well, installing Thunderbird (lots of zeroes) went wrong, with extra toolbars appearing where they shouldn’t be and generally being fucked up.

Then, my ill-advised attempts to fix the problem resulted in Thunderbird refusing to start, an event which caused no small amount of pants-wetting, given that, like all computer “experts”, I don’t regularly back up important files like e-mails (I’m getting around to it soon, OK?!).

Anyway, I rolled back to Thunderbird 1.5.10 and its working OK for now. Anyone who read my screed on switching away from RISC OS is entitled to feel smug right now.

    Hmm. I’ve not had any similar issues with thunderbird, so I have no advices. Just backup your email and don’t be a pillock and everything should go fine.

    So I’ll troll instead! Everyone who reads this will surely understand how important it is that AJW apparently retired at the end of last year. Gone is an icon, gone.

    don’t be a pillock

    That’s the part I’m having trouble with!
