Now you too can enjoy my Inbox without the annoying spam. Every week I get some amazing e-mail. Some amazing because of the sheer cluelessness of the sender, some because of the time and energy that went into crafting them and some are just simply amazing.
It's been a while since we've had a BBeliever in this story, but it's snagged quite a few over the years...

I never expected this story to have a BBeliever...

Subject: One Space for Smart People; a request for You
I visit your site quite regular for some years now and think it's very
funny. However there is something that troubles me every time I read an
article and (well, I don't know the english phrase for it without using
swear-words so let's say) I "have strong feelings about it":
Two spaces after a period.
Please google for "two spaces", read about how stupid this is and
consider using only one space.
Unfortunately, I learned to type on a typewriter, so the two spaces after a period is deeply ingrained in me. Does this topic aggravate anybody else this much?
I asked in the BBlog for replacements for Winzip. Many people recommended the open source 7-zip, but I decided on this suggestion for now...

Subject: Winzip replacement
I am a big fan of the free IZArc product. It does everything that Winzip does plus handles a bunch of other formats and has a tree-view interface. Google for IZArc review and they will all be positive. I tried a lot of free zip utilities to replace WinZip and it was the best of the lot. I transitioned the company I work for away from Winzip to IZArc because I like it so much.

cut prices on PS3,
But it still doesn't matter to me.
Even five hundred bucks
Seems a price point that sucks,
When it costs twice as much as the Wii.
