Yes, I'm still doing that.
Plugging away at the Learning New Things Every Day initiative, we have:

  • New Thing Learned for 5 January: Another nifty OS X Mail trick is that it can think in smart mailboxes the same way iTunes does smart playlists. Useful to know now that I've ended up doing the newsletter for the knitting guild and need to round up the appropriate mails without having to screw around with a thousand separate filtering rules.

I remember you telling me that story -- I don't generally see them on the ceiling here, but you might want to wear a rain-poncho the next time you come over, just in case... ;)
