Finally, after something like 2 years of work on my mailserver, It’s 1.0. OrgMail 1.0 that is. Ship date was Feb 14, Valentines Day. I’m looking for cosmic significance here, but the best thing is: It shipped, on what is normally a black day for me.

When I say that it shipped, to be more accurate I should say that it is installed on our deployment machine and customers are using it.

I’m reminded of Phillip Greenspun quoting Winston Churchill:

“Writing a book is an adventure. To begin with, it is a toy and an amusement; then it becomes a mistress, and then it becomes a master, and then a tyrant. The last phase is that just as you are about to be reconciled to your servitude, you kill the monster, and fling him out to the public.”

In other news, I’m going to be demoing this software to the Seattle Frontier User’s group meeting on Tuesday Feb 22. Like they could keep me from talking about it.
