If you are trying to use Analog to process your Helix Server Log, then this Log String maybe useful to you:

LOGFORMAT (%S – – [%d/%M/%Y:%h:%n:%j]  “%j %r %j” %c %b [%j] [%j] [%j] %j %j %j %j %j %j)

You can get the details on what that lot means form the Analog Home Page, but the key which kept me stumped for a while is that the Helix Server enteres two spaces after the date enclosed by []’s and just before the GET. A typical line out of a Helix Server Log, with Logging set to 5 looks like:

0.0.0.0 – – [11/Mar/2006:18:46:36 +0000]  “GET ramgen/somepath/tosomefile.rm HTTP/1.0″ 200 397 [Mozilla/5.0 (Windows;U;Windows NT 5.1;en-US;rv:1.8.0.1) Gecko/20060111 Firefox/1.5.0.1] [] [UNKNOWN] 200 0 0 0 0 15785

 

streaming images inline in Mozilla Thunderbird.

have you noticed when you insert html into a a message composition window in Thunderbird, or insert an image as a full url path (eg http://images.site.com/images/picture.jpg) , thunderbird changes your html and attaches the image to the message. – How do you get it to not do this……

Use Insert > Image and select “Advanced Edit”.

For Attibute enter: “moz-do-not-send” (don’t include quotes)
For Value enter: “true” (don’t include quotes).

Now, you will only send the remote image link in your email.
