After this debarcle I've had to spend some serious time extending and fixing the FolderDump utility that can re-build badly broken folders. This tool scans the folders.mail2 file and extract all the usable information out of it and writes a "good" version of it to export.mail2. This is a somewhat difficult thing to do depending on the type of damage the file has received. In this case, every object had lost it's hierarchy and had to be re-connection to the tree in some meaningful way. Some other folders have millions of false positive objects and duplicate object pointers. Other have random corruptions and broken links.

So anyway if you've been wondering where I'd disappeared to, well thats where.

Oh and writing/recording music. I do more than code apps.
