It's not a bug, it's a feature: Carolin Horn has designed Anymails, which represents your email messages and folders as micro-organisms. The morphology of the individual organisms and their behaviour within colonies imparts information about the state of your email. You can view QT movies of the application in action (1, 2), download her thesis, and download the Anymails code itself. See some of her other work here (predominantly in German). via Madame Martin, the "French Metafilter".

The Little Graphics App That Could! If you like vector illustraction programs, you should definitely check this out! Xara is a zillion times better than Illustrator, which is major bloatware. The last version of Xara, version 2, was only 7 megs. I've used it for years now. It's lean, fast, and never crashes. Now Xara Ltd. is about to release a new version. You can download the public beta for free at their website. If you buy a copy, it's only $145!!!
