  • However, since I could not press the link in my browser to invoke the email client (or right-click+copied it), I had to type it from memory.

    Does not compute. The conclusion does not follow from the premise.

    • Aristotle, for the last time - please stop being so laconic and cryptic. Explain what you want to say in meaningful and understandable English.

      • for the last time

        When was the first time?

        My comment is perfectly meaningful and understandable English. The conclusion (“I had to type it from memory”) does not follow from the premise (“I could not press the link in my browser to invoke the email client (or right-click+copied it)”). Just because it wasn’t a mailto:-link doesn’t mean you couldn’t copy-paste the obfuscated email address and correct it.

        This is a lesson I learned from another programmer long ago (as a fledgling console user, but the lesson applies to many other things): do not typewrite a name (such as a filename) that you see on the screen, as that is too prone to errors – either copy-paste it or use some form of completion.
