@rat @alchemist there are lots of good tips and tricks on the plan9-l@sdf.org mailing list. these should also make it into the wiki.sdf.org

@SDF @rat I think I'm gonna make a post about email configurations hopefully I'll also send it to the mailing list


@alchemist @SDF
ty folk there's much info out there & many blogin their experiences & insights. Feel like I've never used computers before :o). Can't get mail in rc to work (how to proceed / abort when composing or replying? Plan9 hates keyboards and CTRL key in particular? ^] ^U seem to be only ones work as advertised) or mail in acme. "right click the 2/ after the msg or in this sentence" does nothing when I try. Notice that vps console says "page: newwindow: '/env/wsys' file does not exist".

@alchemist @SDF

In the spirit of contributing something / anything here's my current go to snarf for pasting in rc to get something I can use to ssh sdf and use com (did I ever mention white backgrounds give me migraine?):

window vt -b -f /lib/font/bit/fixed/unicode.10x20.font

The first thing I do in this new window is use the right click menu to select 24x80.
smj suggested another font somewhere but I found it had problems with text cursor placement because character width stuff was whack.
