From the fine people who first brought you Geocities comes Goowy mail. Goowy mail is, so far as Aunty knows, the first commercial scale web-based email application built on Flash. This allows Goowy to offer a free webmail service, which you can access from any Internet connection with a web browser, with the look and feel of a desktop mail client. For example Goowy automatically checks for new mail, play sounds upon receiving new mail, sports a real-time spell checker, and offers POP3 support. And like a desktop application, you can send and receive mail in the background while composing or reading your email.

Says the Goowy site:


“What is Goowy Mail?
Gone are the days of slow and boring web-based email! Goowymail’s innovative approach combines the best aspects of desktop software with cutting-edge web technologies to provide you with a dynamic and feature-rich email program. It’s all wrapped up inside a graphical user interface that can only be described as…well..Goowy! It’s vibrant, fun, and FREE!”

In other words, it’s full of goowy goodness.

Aunty signed up for a trial account (remember, it’s free) and it does as it promises, and is certainly interesting.

  1. WordPress generates a default URL from the headline, but you can change it easily if you click on “Advanced Editing.” It’s the field labeled “Post slug.” You can change it at any stage while editing the article (even after publishing, though that would be a bad idea from the standpoint of keeping links accurate), and it won’t reset itself if you change the headline.

    (Oh, incidentally: all those link and meta elements you have at the end of the page? Those should be up at the top of the file inside the <head>…</head> section. They may work in some browsers, but there’s no reason to expect them to work in all of them, even the ones that support those features. It’s kind of like putting the city/state/zip on the back of an envelope. The post office might find it and send the letter to the right place, or they might not see it and send it back to you.)

  2. Hello again. If your blogging software insists on creating URLs based on your headline, would you pulll-LEEZE consider using shorter headlines? Thanks. (Yes, I know about tinyURL, thank you very much.)
