10/16   Is there any free tool on soda or in Windoze / Linux that takes a
        bunch of .jpg files (wedding pictures, etc.) and generates
        some good-looking web pages that I can host on soda?  Thanks.
        \_ I know of such a free tool on Windows, but I don't know of any
           for this Windoze thing.  Sorry.  Is Windoze / Linux sort of like
           RMS's GNU / Linux?
           \_ Windows tool please then?
        \_ Why host it on soda when it's reliability is um, non-existent
           and the quota sucks? There are tons of ad-free picture hosting
           sites (e.g. link:picasaweb.google.com with 1G quota,
           auto compression upload, folder management, unlimited
           bandwidth, 99.998% up time, etc.
           \_ Because, really, your wedding photos need four nines of uptime.
              And, in the interest of being pedantic, name *one* photo site
              with four nines of up time?  Hell, name one with three. -dans
              \_ Yahoo's Flickr. You lose.
                 \_ Are they really four 9's? Most of Yahoo certainly is not.
                    \_ they're way better than soda, anyway.
                       \_ What is soda's 9's?
                          \_ two?
                             \_ two 9's would be 3.65 days, so soda has
                                one 9.
                 \_ Flickr has had total outages > 8 hours, and has daily
                    (hourly?) localized outages.  You're just wrong.  And once
                    again, I ask, why do you need even three 9's of uptime for
                    your wedding photos? -dans
                    \_ because it sucks to have any service unavailable at
                       unpredictable times, even if it's only for an hour
                       a month.  Not that soda comes close to three 9's.
           \_ There is still quota on soda?

4/8     What's a good free e-mail provider? I don't want to use Gmail,
        Yahoo, Outlook, or any of those sites with features I never use that
        track my personal info and keep changing their interface. I want just
        simple e-mail without privacy issues or all the baggage these large,
        for-profit companies are adding. I might even be willing to pay.
        Recommendations?

9/4     It looks like there are some issues with wallall at the moment. Any
        plans for it getting fixed? I can run wall, but wallall just gives an
        error.
