Cool trick and tip of the day:
For those of you who fondly remember the days when there was an IBM 3270 terminal on your desk ... run the Citadel client locally on your machine and put "status_line=1" in your .citadelrc
You'll get an adorable status line on the screen that shows the host, room, etc. you're in, along with encryption status and the number of new emails you have. And for that authentic IBM flavor, you'll notice that on the right side there's a little "X" icon that appears when the client has a transaction in progress with the server.
(Yes, on a real 3270 it was a clock, but text-mode 3270 emulators always used an X instead)
Try it on a slow connection for that authentic "I'm waiting for the machinee" effect.
