10 years of clawsker!
Today on #claws irc channel some conversation derailed into talking about hidden preferences (of Claws Mail) and clawsker's name, the Perl applet which can help you to edit them.
First name was not clawsker, it was a more like Sylpheed Claws Hidden Preferences Editor, which I of course abbreviated to the unspeakable schpe — unless you know German, I guess… ;-)
Looking for the initial script, it turned out it's still on my hard disc:
├── [ 4096 Sep 3 2006] mock

│ └── [ 315 Sep 3 2006] schpe.gladep.bak
└── [ 1160 Aug 22 2006] schpe
1 directory, 5 files
Notice it's dated just 10 years and 1 day ago, yay!
That version wasn't even functional, was just a skeleton and an attempt to made a GTK+ GUI with Glade, which, by that time wasn't as good as probably is today (although I've never used it again).
Fortunately that idea was abandoned in the following months and the first release in 2007 enjoyed a hand-made GUI, probably more laborious but better suited, IMHO.
