Re: mail client
pine lives in the nonfree because they aren't allowed to distribute
modified source code. So they distribute pine and a cool wrapper dealie
that does it on your box. Personally, I use mutt at home...it is very nice
and it is configurable to use pine-like keybindings so your fingers don't
freak out on you. It is also super for reading happy mailing list for this
one cuz everything is threaded right there for you, unless you don't want
it to be. Check out mutt.org for dotfiles and lists and stuff.

When Gladstone was British Prime Minister he visited Michael Faraday's
laboratory and asked if some esoteric substance called `Electricity'
would ever have practical significance.
"One day, sir, you will tax it," was the answer.
