I prefer hiring freelancers through upwork. If the work is good (and repeatable) then I hire them directly. Let me know if you have any questions or need help.

How to ruin a good app.-4wd (September 13, 2020, 09:46 AM)
My small contribution here...
I've used Pegasus (not since about 2000, though) and TheBat! and finally settled on Thunderbird.
I still have a license for TheBat! but I didn't go beyond v7 -- I always loved its configurability and its use of FidoNet-style message quoting but I got badly burnt by a massive failure of the encryption mechanism for the Voyager variant and I decided never to trust it again.
Thunderbird's abandonment of its addons infrastructure is an annoyance -- a couple of addons for message management that I used and relied on have either gone away already or are going away as we speak (Nostalgy and QuickFolders being the most important of them) but the newly discovered ability to create virtual folders via the saved search functionality has just stopped me wondering about possible alternatives, which is why I started reading this thread in the first place!
I have tens of thousands of stored emails in Thunderbird and it copes. This is probably A Good Thing.-oblivion (July 03, 2020, 11:35 AM)
Since we've got a solid platform to build on now and people have started using it to create their own alternative clients based on it, I'd like to draw the attention to a donation collection effort that is currently on-going to develop and launch a fully-capable e-mail, usenet news and feed client building on UXP and being based on Thunderbird prior to their descent into the limited realm of WebExtensions and "modern Mozilla".
If the Thunderbird Council will not listen to what its users need, then we will!
Please see here for details about this effort and how to chip in/donate. Tobin, our Communicator specialist and prior contributor to the SeaMonkey project will be spearheading this effort. Of course everything will be Open Source under the MPL, as usual.
This effort will directly replace FossaMail for the gap it has filled in the past. Despite pleas to revive it, I simply don't have the time to do so. Instead, please support this new client!
Thanks for your attention.
Is it possible to make a hotkey for this option? I looked through preferences, but couldn't find it.
I use this feature quite often, and quarduple click is getting boring.-Attronarch (November 20, 2017, 02:22 AM)
I never said anything about Agile boards looking at that statement. I talked about backlogs.-wraith808 (August 21, 2017, 07:55 PM)
... The purpose of an agile board (and trello) is not in the implementation, but the backlog. ...-wraith808 (June 30, 2017, 11:11 PM)
I think there's a problem intrinsic to trying to make OnTask digital. Some things need to be touched, and felt, and simple in order to succeed. What I've found using OnTask is that I'm bad at prioritizing large amounts of anything, and estimating how long something does take or should take, and easily distracted. Backlogs, after working with Agile for 4+ years don't really work, as you're never really trying to clear them, so they become built up with a lot of detritus that distract. There's a whole lot of that on our backlog at work, and we're never going to prioritize them, even if we have nothing to do. They just don't matter. And so the stack rank becomes meaningless.-wraith808 (July 02, 2017, 08:49 AM)
