All Fixed Up, Sorry 'bout That

All Fixed Up, Sorry 'bout That

Alright,

The javascript blocker that tries to make you listen to the whole thing
is removed, and I brought back the << >> buttons so you can skip ones
people submitted already.

What I'll probably do is track down why the blocker wasn't firing, and
then instead of blocking, I'll just use that as a hidden form submit
field that says how much of the submission you listened to.  That could
be an interesting side stat to collect to see if people make snap
judgements.

Anyway, sorry guys!

Hey all,

I've been out of town and out of sorts for a while, I've only been watching
the list on occasion. Last time I submitted, the body of my email became the
text of the details for my submission. This time it didn't seem to go
through. I use gmail, so I'm guessing I need to adjust the settings, though
I don't believe I've changed anything since last time.

Thanks,

Yeah I saw that, can you send me an email directly (zedshaw@zedshaw.com)
from the same account?  I'll take a look.

Do you have HTML/Rich Formatting turned on?  I don't, and gmail works
fine for me.  Do you handle HTML, Zed?

No, it can't handle only HTML.  It works if the email is a proper
HTML+text email, but if its HTML alone then I ignore it.

I got a buddy who's written a bad ass HTML email to text email
converter, I should probably steal it from him.

Use default text encoding for outgoing messagesUse Unicode (UTF-8) encoding
for outgoing messages

Seems to be my only two choices...it did work last time.

Right in the "compose message" window above where you type, there is a link
switch that changes text / html (which they call "rich formatting")

Ah, so looking at these emails I see:

Content-Type: multipart/alternative;
     boundary="===============1577549277178634666=="

In the headers and then a text and HTML part.  It looks like the
receiver isn't taking out the text part when this mime type is used.

I'll fix that up, until then just go in and disable rich text formatting
like Hank said.

I couldn't find it either ... I had to google it! ... felt like an
idiot then with it staring in my face on every page.   Glad I wasn't
the only one.
