RSB on Recently Viewed Mail Smart Folders

Daniel at Red Sweater Blog wrote an interesting post about using Mail’s Smart Folders to create a Recently Viewed Mail Smart Folder — seems like a pretty keen tip to me.

I’m giving it a try, and in addition to his Recently Viewed parameters, I’m also excluding it from a few mail folders that I’m unlikely to refer to as often, such as the folder where “Someone has replied to your topic/blog entry/etc” mail goes, and some mailing list folders.

Depending on how you filter and store email, that might not be necessary — or it might be easier to tell it to only look for Recently Viewed mail in certain folders, as opposed to not in certain folders.

BESM Third Edition and Adam’s 2007 Schedule

I updated my Publication List to include BESM Third Edition, the last book I worked on as a freelancer for Guardians of Order. I finished the book nearly a year ago, and started it nearly two years ago, so it really feels like forever has passed. I haven’t seen my copies yet and long-ago burned the files to DVD — I can barely remember what it looks like.

Mark MacKinnon has been blogging about the game. I hope that BESM/Tri-Stat fans enjoy it, and I’m glad that the WW/Arthaus team picked up the rights to it.

Well, that’s the first of my books out this year — next up are Handbook: House Davion, Classic BattleTech TechManual, Classic BattleTech Tactical Operations, Jihad Hot Spots: 3072 [With a freakin’ awesome cover by Klaus Scherwinski], the Classic BattleTech Box Set [come hell or high water!] and some stuff that’s cool but I can’t talk about yet. Plus, probably a few other things that I’ll get roped into doing … who knows, I might even get to work on some Shadowrun stuff this year!
