My Reviews

Night and Day Dynamic

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I would classify the plugin as more cute than necessary. First off, it does work as advertised; however, the 20:00-08:00 night time theme shift doesn't take into account Daylight savings time in your local area. This means the theme shift may be off by an hour.

The source code is available for anyone willing to try their hand at writing a plugin. This is the real purpose of the plugin.
If you are looking for a starting point to write plugins; overall, this is a good tool to start learning with.


Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have multiple accounts, some of which I've had for more than 20 years and thus tend to collect a lot of spam. I have a lot of rules defined to dump the spam into a spam folder, but clean up used to be a pain. Xpunge is a great way to quickly and easily clean out spam, empty the trash, and compress my folders all at the click of a single button.

I highly recommend this plugin as a great way to easily manage your email complexity.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I would like to have this plugin, but isn't compatible with my version of TB. Any chance of an update for the 60.* crowd?


Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Is there a way to give this plugin more than 5 stars? This should be in every user's installation.

I'm in the middle of a job search. I'm looking in a specific city and for a specific job and I make this clear to all of the recruiters I deal with. I get all kinds of referrals for positions well outside of my search area, or for positions that don't fit my skill set. I also get inappropriate requests (I.e. I have a job, how much do you want to be paid?) . To save time, I've created some template responses that I could copy and paste when sending responses for these recurring messages. The problem was that it took time to copy and paste, and I still have to customize the message salutation or date.

With Quicktext, I can select the appropriate template with a very few key strokes, the salutation is set from the recruiter's email and it has even been set based on "Good morning", or "Good afternoon" time, dates in the body of the message are set from the scripting as well. Lastly, my resume is automatically attached (soo no more forgetting it).
This has been a big help in answering messages, whether I'm letting the recruiter know the position is a bad skills fit, in the wrong location (or both), a request for additional information, or any other message.
