Internet & Networking I had been an avid user of Pine for almost five years. Recently, I decided to move to a greener posture. I dumped my good old Pine and settled with a graphical client. Although, sometime I miss the simple, fast, text based interface, the new relationship is shaping up to be an exciting one. We have our bad times, but overall I am happy with the switch.

Pine uber alles

Anything for linux with a k in front of it is gay IMHO [except of course for the kernel ;) ]

So that's why everyone looks at me funny when I talk about the "k-ernel"...

As a pine user for going on 10 years now, I can't shake the huge advantage that having my mail available in an identical setup from anywhere (that has ssh) gives me. I tried mutt, but it acted too much like elm. I tried "cone", but never got comfortable with it.

Fetchmail + procmail + spamassassin + pine works pretty well, I only 2-3 pieces of spam a week (filtering rate of 99% or so).
