clevercactus beta 2 tip of the day


I mentioned this on the cc-devlist but didn't make a big fuss about it later--it's very useful though, so here it goes:

If you have installed the latest beta of clevercactus using any of the two Windows installers (from the download section) you can now go to Control Panel > Internet Options > Programs and select "clevercactus" from the list, to set cc as your default email client.

For other operating systems, you can set the default by using the options to load with a mailto: address, run the executable (or the JAR file) with the -mailto parameter, for example:

java -jar clevercactus.jar -mailto joe@doe.com

If clevercactus is loaded, the running copy will launch a new mail window, otherwise it will load, then launch the window. Additionally, if cc is already running, and you run it again, the effect will be to bring the currently running copy to the front.

Nice eh? :-)
