Send TUBMac to a Friend

Category : Commentary/emailfriend.txt

I've got a new feature on the left side-bar. If you feel there's something interesting on the weblog that you would like somebody else to read, you can send over the page via e-mail.

My friend, Hai Hwee, contributed the PHP code that does this. She originally did this in Java. But I thought it'll be great to include this in the weblog package you can download from the right side-bar. That's all PHP, so she obliged with the conversion. Talk about asking for an inch.

The links will all work in the e-mail page. Ironically, it looks best in Outlook in Windows. OS X's has a problem with handling style-sheets. It just ignores them (as far as I know, monitoring other discussions on the web), so the page gets messed up in OS X Mail.

But just imagine another application of the technology. You're the owner of a company and you're looking at your Balance Sheet in a browser. You decide to send the page, via e-mail, to your accountant with a query. It arrives and, since the links all still work, the accountant can click on a link and (after suitable authorisation) drill down to work out how best to answer your query. [See, I can speak the language.]
