some pics of the pick up (rubbish pick up by river Dodder)

Saturdays from Sat 12 June 11am a group will meet somewhere along Dodder or other places South Dub / Dundrum / Wicklow and pick up rubbish. Very nice way of getting out and experiencing some Nature. :)

Among the Nature experienced this time was nettle stings, briar scratches, wrestling with weeds to extract bigger interesting items of rubbish. We found a ladybird village. Kate liked that. We picked up down towards Clonskeagh and up to some little park up from that pub near the bridge where we met.

A cheeky slogan that came into my head on the way home:
 (after stopping and picking up broken and unbroken bottles at a bus stop just after Dundrum)
 (and picking up a yet unbroken one on the road)

 Picking up the mess
  .. after other people
     .... Green Party

:) It's a haiku because the pauses have to be counted!! :-P

We met on Sat 12 June at Classon's Bridge. In Milltown. (That's the bridge near that pub (Dropping Well) near to under the Luas viaduct over the Dodder.) Meeting Next Sat 19 June at Rathfarnham bridge.

Announce and info:

Any questions contact Kevin at , ring him on or phone

Dublin South Greens are organising a clean up of the river Dodder from the M50 to Clonskeagh.

Saturdays at 11am. We will work until 16.00 so feel free to come for an hour or two, or the whole day if you wish. The clean up will involve litter picking along the footpaths and cycleways along the river. We will be cleaning the river bed and banks in September after the hatching and nesting season are over and we expect to take two Saturdays to do the part of the river mentioned.

We will provide litter pickers, bags and gloves and will have tea, coffee and biscuits as well. Hope to see you there!

How to see what is in multi-part MIME messages your email prog cannot decode: munpack

Pauline has "Got a nokia e63, takes jpegs. I send it via hotmail using 3 as the server" and I could see some of the pictures she sent in Thunderbird, but not others. Same for my Mum using Windows+some version of Outlook.
How to see what is in multi-part MIME messages your email prog cannot decode:

1. From Thunderbird/Evolution/gmail/wherever: Save message (as .eml).
2. $ sudo apt-get install mpack # or equivalent for your OS - install package called "mpack"
3. $ munpack message.eml

# bash, multiple files:
$ for f in *.eml; do munpack $f; done
 How to not see it: open it in Thunderbird/Evolution/Outlook
Upgrade Thunderbird to 3.x (ESET antivirus immediatelyu goes crazy scanning Thunderbird indexing Inbox urgh!). Forward to gmail. Try to open .eml with mutt. Thunderbird attachment for viewing emails. Not sure if it would manage to unpack these messages.
Mutt looking very lovely these days on ubuntu, be careful it will write changes to mail file that it opens!
$ mutt -f ~/.thunderbird/meh.default/ImapMail/meh/INBOX

Where I say "I see same problem." I'm quite wrong :( whoops.
Reverse reverse! Nuns! Pass the retractor please nurse.
I see same problem. 
With latest Thunderbird 3.0 (and previous 2.x versions) MIME boundary
containing commas (and other non-alpha chars) doesn't get decoded. MIME message
just shown inline as text not decoded.

Coming from someone using a nokia E65 phone.

2 messages okay:

5 messages not okay (note the one without the comma in boundary .. a - at end
of boundary is a problem?):

The headers seem to have some corruption.
X-OriginalArrivalTime: and Date: header get inserted in To: line which maybe had some end of line chars in a row in it.

This is probably the REAL problem. "probably is when there is a small chance the thing won't happen" - Kate @ dinner this tea-time.

The problem I see seems to be because the email headers have a blank line inside the To: header line. Email readers Thunderbird/Evolution/Outlook/mutt display the message body starting after the blank line in To: line and MIME message type is not detected. nokia + hotmail
munpack extracts attachments okay.
