comment Opening dragged email messages on a Mac
Ironically Thunderbird is capable of dragging out these links that are readable by SeaMonkey, but SeaMonkey cannot drag out these links. So you need both applications.

comment Opening dragged email messages on a Mac
Note, I just experimented with this and it appears that Mozilla SeaMonkey knows exactly what to do with the "mailbox://" protocol and opens the message no problem in it's browser. Now I'm just looking for a way to make that happen in Firefox or Chrome...

Then what's with the "mailbox://" protocol? There must be some way to force the system to let Thunderbird handle items with that protocol. Otherwise why would it export like that on a drag-and-drop?

comment mount external drive in read-only system
worked with the usb stick - thanks for telling me about fdisk -l. I have everything backed up (using cp -a and also made a .tar.gz just in case...). Now ready to wipe the drive. Do you have any recommendations about fixing the drive or will a clean install of Ubuntu where I let it format the drive fix things through reformating?

comment mount external drive in read-only system
Ah - I got it read-only again using "mount /dev/sdc3 /mnt/" (by process of elimination). It gives me "hfs: write access to a jounaled filesystem is not supported, use the force option at your own risk, mounting read-only." (I'm guessing jounaled is "journaled") So this probably means better to go with a USB stick that I can easily reformat. There's stuff on this external drive that I don't want to lose.

comment mount external drive in read-only system
Alright. fdisk -l gives me: "Disk /dev/dd: 250.0 GB .... Disk /dev/sdc doesn't contain a valid partition table" I tried mounting with the above command and that did not work. I have tried several things and at one point, I did manage to get it to mount read-only, but since I'm trying to write to it that was not what I'm trying to do. What do you think the next best option is? I could try a regular usb stick. Do you think it will make a difference?

OK - I just ran mount -n -o remount,rw / and now appear to be in read-write mode. Still could use help mounting the external drive though.
