An Email Epiphany

Years ago I came across Mailwasher and used the free version but decided to buy the full version last year. A year later they wanted $30 a year to keep it activated so I told them to stuff it. I only have one major email account anyway.

The change meant that I would no longer have an audible/visible indication that an email had arrived. As soon as ‘ding’ is heard, you have to stop what you’re doing and open the mail, just in case – and it was interrupting the day. Now, I have made a policy only to open mail in the morning. None is that urgent anyway and it frees up the rest of the day for continuous work (or continuous loafing).

The client offers free removal of cataracts and so, with the assumption that those who read it might be sufferers, the font is large Lato. I can recommend Lato if you’re using a font-face kit. I liked it when it first arrived. It’s easy to read, bold is a real bold and it has around a dozen flavours.

The only problem I’ve seen is with Chrome that doesn’t render certain sizes of Lato properly and makes ‘t’s the same size as ‘a’s and truncates some descenders.
