Warning: This post was published more than 12 years ago.
I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!
But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:
- My views might have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post.
- This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
- Factual information might be outdated.
- Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.
Many thanks for your understanding.
My archive of emails I’ve sent and received in the fourteen or so months I’ve been studying medicine has just surpassed 12,000. That’s nearly 1,000 emails per month. I only know this because I’ve given up with Outlook now, because it’s running at such a slow pace, probably precisely because it has so much to think about. Thunderbird, by comparison, whizzes along at the speed of light. And it’s a much, much smaller programme. The only reason I didn’t use t before was because Google Desktop didn’t support it… but now it does! Hurrah!
