Craptastic

As you may or may not know. I read and send e-mail through a web-based tool which I wrote in PHP. It sucks the mail from various servers and dumps them into the iWalt.com database. Then I can sort them and mailbox them as I see fit.

The problem with this little system of mine is that when I make a mistake in the code, things get screwed up. Today, after a little searching, I discovered that my software was doing a terrible job sending e-mails to people who have quotes in their reply-to strings. This includes my Dad who probably thinks that I’ve been ignoring his e-mail for the past year or so. =-)

Anyway, I’ll be going through the e-mail I’ve recieved over the past year soon and appologizing to everyone who may not have been getting my e-mails. iWalt.com is a learning process, and sometimes it blows up in my face. Someday it will be perfect. =-)

One more note: My walt@mac.com address has been very sluggish recently and I’m fairly certain that this is not my software’s fault. If you’ve been writing to me recently and I haven’t gotten back try me again. Or try walt@iwalt.com, I check them both regularly.
