4,294,967,295 new Thunderbird messages?!


Today’s Wait, What Screenshot? (hey, that rhymes) comes to us from my installation of Mozilla Thunderbird, taken around lunchtime. According to Thunderbird, it downloaded 4,294,967,295 new messages during that session. There’s a bad pun about the sound a crazy bird makes in there somewhere.

Must be all my hate mail, or all my date rejection letters.
