Thunderbird can now auto config your account

A couple of days ago the first big part of the auto detection of mail accounts landed in Thunderbird. I've blogged about the feature before.

This means that you no longer have to enter all of the technical information to add an account. Just enter your name, email and password and Thunderbird will try to auto detect the rest.

Really really cool. Unfortunately it doesn't support Google Apps :(

All of my domains, both personal and at work, are using Google Apps. But the new auto detection cant detect my setup. Damn. It sounded so cool.

My domain at work is dinnerbooking.com which is hosted by Google Apps. The IMAP is at imap.gmail.com, but Thunderbird doesn't find that since it doesn't do any DNS lookup.

Hopefully this get fixed later...

What 99% uptime means

If your site's uptime is:
99% - it's down 3 days, 15 hours, 36 minutes
99.9% - it's down 8 hours, 45 minutes, 36 seconds
99.99% - it's down 52 minutes, 33 seconds
99.999% - it's down 5 minutes, 15 seconds
99.9999% - it's down 31 seconds
a year. Pretty interesting...
