I knew you were not alright.

But I hope that you get better soon.

Oh, just a wild guess.

Or possibly psychic powers - I'm not quite sure....

Now look, stop playing silly games, OK?

Until this (above) message you were using Shredder which was an *alpha* 
#3 release of Thunderbird way back in *February* *2008*. It is now 
October 2010.

In this response you are now using TB v3.0.9 which is the latest, and 
up-to-date, release. Congratulations! :-)

There is NO need to "fix" Thunderbird. Thunderbird simply does the 
correct threading - without any interference.

I've been using TB since it was knee-high to grasshopper and it has 
always behaved the same; I have never had to "fix" anything.

Is OK.

I didn't know about picpaste until recently when someone mentioned it.

And then there is

where you upload scripts and such for people to review to see where you 
have mistooks in coding.
