Thunderbird 2.0.0.0

When I saw that Thunderbird 2.0.0.0 had finally been released, at first I wasn't going to upgrade to it. Was gonna wait for the 2.0.0.1 version....except that I at work I have been plagued with 1.5.0.x version crashing.

So, I upgraded the work desktop to this version to see if it would solve the crashing problems. It didn't. Worse, my theme wasn't compatible and many of my extensions didn't work.

Searching around, I found places where some of the extensions had been hacked to work...and the next day most of the other ones started appearing. And, I was mostly back in business.

One change between 1.5 and 2.0 is labels versus tags. Which impacted my message filters....largely in the import/export to synchronize between my other Thunderbird instances in accessing my work IMAP account. (perhaps somebody'll write an extension to sync the filter via the IMAP account :P )

Since it didn't solve my main issue, and not all extensions had updated....I held off updating my work laptop or my home desktop (I don't bother updating my home laptop anymore...it just runs BOINC now &#59;D )

But, I started getting emails that I wanted to update filters for, and then joined another mailing list....and I'm going on a business trip soon, so I took the plunge and updated my work laptop (Mac OS X, both desktops are Windows XP). Then last night I updated my home computer.

Now if only it would stop crashing at work..... :**:

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
