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.

Cool. Thank you. BTW: I was searching for the config file... then I realized it's called `citadel.rc`

You can copy citadel.rc to a file called ".citadelrc" in your home directory.
When this is found by the client it will be used instead of the global citadel.rc file. This gives you the option to customize it for just yourself and not everyone else on the same computer.

A couple of small changes to the text client are coming soon:

1. No more "localhost" wholist entries.
The text client will be smart enough to show the actual location of the user, even when it's running on the localhost and connects to 127.0.0.1 instead of the local socket.

2. A little experiment where we warn users about using '<E>nter Message' when they should be using '<R>eply'. Initially, this is only going to happen in rooms whose default view is "Blog". Today, a site like Uncensored can't have world-writable Blog rooms because many text client users still habitually use <E>nter when they should use <R>eply, and that creates a top-level Blog post instead of a comment. We'll experiment with this and see where it goes.

(Uncoincidentally, this is the same reason we can't easily do a topics-and-threads view ... but it could be argued that this would be somewhat un-Citadelian anyway.)

I'm not sure when Uncensored will receive the new software. I have to upgrade us to 64-bit Linux, which involves a time consuming database conversion. I might just do it at the same time.
