The forums now sends a zephyr to -c doomcom whenever anyone posts. Because I know you all use zephyr constantly.

I don't know what any of that means, but does it mean you're getting spammed when we post?

It just reduces my need to compulsively reload the "posts since your last visit" page. Which will obviously make me vastly more productive.

yes.

If the zephyr format were a bit tighter, and more suitable for a single line it would look better in text clients (like vt and owl)

Hmm... I sorta like having the post text in the zephyr for public posts (and didn't really expect people other than me to care). I use Gaim, which is hardly a proper Zephyr client.

I agree it's useful, the format is just kinda loose. The URL could move into the sig, and save some space. The quote could be stripped off. The forum could become the instance...

I'm selfishly inclined to work around Gaim's brokenness and not put anything useful in the sig. This might be a little better, and I might fiddle with making some of the BBCODE into zephyr markup sometime.

I think it's time for an old-fashioned zephyr-off.
