mutt query / NT query
Anybody know how to concatenate two emails in mutt so you can reply to both in a single email? (julietk, I'm sure you've told me how to do this before, but I'm a dozy moo and I can't remember & I can't find it in my read-mail.) I could just save one out as a file & read it in when replying to the other one, but then all the quoting would have to be fixed by hand, which is a pain.

Also a quick WinNT query: does anybody know if there's a way to automatically resize a picture for your desktop?

Current Mood: clueless, displacing

reply to both in a single email?

If I tag them with `t' and then reply with `;r' it seems to do the right thing.

Thank you! That does exactly what I wanted it to do.

I feel quite stupid now. I was looking for something like reply-to-many but I really should have worked out that "do the next command to everything tagged" would apply to "reply" as well... D'oh. :-/

resize a picture for your desktop

Doesn't just selecting the picture and setting "Picture Display" to "Stretch" (at least, that's what the options on W2K are -- I know they keep buggering about with the display dialog) DTRT?

Selecting the picture where/how?

Settings -> Display Properties -> Background

Ah. That explains it. They've disabled Settings. :-(

(When I said our machines were locked-down, I wasn't kidding.)

The other way of accessing it is right-click on the desktop, then one of the menu options brings up the Display Settings dialog. I guess that's locked down too, though....

Our PC support people are not known for their tolerance and understanding toward the technically-literate user that would like to do things themselves rather than wait for a school-leaver trainee to find time to come and do it instead.
