The station of choice for Chinquapin Parish.

Brilliance in

Every now and then, the length of the fields in (Date Received, Subject, etc.) get thrown all out of whack and I have to fix them. I was doing so just now and noticed the most brilliant thing: It changed date format when it needed to use less space.

If I changed the physical size of the field, it would change the date format from “February 9, 2006” to “Feb 9, 2006”. This is a small thing but it prevents the use of ellipses (“February 9,…”). And it keeps getting smaller until it shows you 02/09/06

before resize after resize smaller smaller still smallest

I don’t know if other mail programs do this or not but when it finally clicked in my brain that it was happening, I was just like “Whoa!”
