Tweets like this make me want to switch to T-Mobile
Was going to engage John Chen on Twitter, but turns out he’s not here. I'll check MySpace. Don’t worry @BlackBerry Something in the works!

Email is one of those things that I use all day every day. It isn’t always my favorite method of contact, but it’s easily the one I use most often. Because of this I’m incredibly picky when it comes to my email clients.
The winner? It was pretty neck-and-neck between Dispatch and Boxer, but in the end I went with Boxer. Dispatch has incredible support for getting emails to other services (especially Omnifocus) and that nearly caused it to be the winner, but I just couldn’t get past the lack of folder support. I’ve been sticking emails in folders for way too long now to use an email client that doesn’t show them to me. Plus since Omnifocus has their own solution to quickly getting emails in to their app the lack of built-in Omnifocus support in Boxer isn’t a deal breaker.
If you’re looking for a slick, well-designed email client you could do a lost worse than giving Boxer a try. If the $5.99 price-point makes you leery then check out their free version. It lacks some of the bells and whistles yet gives you access to enough features that you can get a very good sense of whether or not it will work for you.
After dealing with the fun of various WordPress cache plugins (Super Cache, W3 Total Cache, etc) I decide to say screw it and switch to using only Varnish and PHP 5.5′s opcode cache.
This took a little bit to set up (mostly because WordPress sticks cookies on everything!), but after the initial pain I’m left with a rock-solid cache implementation.
I plan to write up some more detailed instructions at some point. If you can’t wait for that you’re welcome to take a look at the various config files over on GitHub.
Of course all of this site tweaking is going to be for not if I don’t actually start writing more…
