We are two of a kind, and imap as done by my isp using dovecot, is a 
pita, ignoring fetchmails pop3 commands to delete downloaded mail. So I 
still have to log in at least daily and delete from 250 to north of a 
thousand read emails every day, using firefox.

I suspect he thinks he has found a new advertising medium thats almost 
free, but to me, its spam the instant the price "only x euro's" shows 
up. He can't possible ship such a bulky product across the small pond at 
the quoted price, to me in WV, USA. So its spam to me.

Plus I can make it, if I was of a mind to, for 20% if my labor is free 
and theres no "finish by" deadline.  But I tend to do furniture pieces 
out of prettier, lots more pricy woods. Cherry, mahogany, walnut, white 
ash, ebony etc.  And those except for the ebony, are of the lower cost 
pretty woods. Gabon Ebony is pricy stuff, so you use little bits and 
pieces for trim, as seen in a Green & Green built piece, or even whole 
house.

But I'm guarding my supply of white ash since theres no more of it 
standing, the ash borer beetle has wiped it out in the last 2 decades 
over on this side of the pond. I currently have 5 slabs of it, native 
sized 2x8's about 6 feet long, clamped to a steel frame to make it dry 
without any great twist. Takes about 5 years, in a shed with a good roof 
and just enough heat to stay above the dew point in colder seasons. Air 
dried mahogany has to be searched for, most wood peddlers seem to think 
kiln dried, setting the warpage into it forever is ok. They need beat 
about the brow with a big piss elm club, ruining good wood like that.

However, this rant is now a change of subject and off topic.
