So, this morning I got a mail from Avid. I demo’d their editing software some time ago and evidently gave up my address for the privilege. It wasn’t just any address, though, it was one of those plussed addresses I’ve been moping around about, which was very odd because, as I’ve moped, Dreamhost doesn’t support them even though they’re nice and everyone should.

So I sent myself a plussed mail because, you know, hope springs eternal and I was procrastinating about sending a real mail to someone more than a level above me in the food chain, and it worked, too.

So that emboldened me to write Dreamhost and ask, and lo! They implemented plussed addresses just today. Evidently the newsletter coming out later today will have all the details.

Probably doesn’t seem like such a big deal, but they’re really useful for all sorts of little things, from chasing down spam wrongdoers to writing useful filters.

gMail and fastmail already do it, by the way.
