tiger_spot: Could you remind me to do [thus-and-so] in a few months?It's very convenient for that sort of thing, but also it's just so niftily exactly cross-time communication, even if the choices of available time have to follow laws of causality.
** brooksmoses writes an email in Eudora saying, "Dear tiger_spot-in-a-few-months: Remember to do [thus-and-so]", clicks shift-Send and selects the "On or after this date" option, and enters a date a few months in the future.
brooksmoses: Okay, done.
Apparently the solution with Thunderbird is just to put reminders on one's calendar that send out email when they come up. I find this far less satisfying.
