I guess I'm just out of step. I thought it was a fairly decent piece
reviewing the basics of procmail in just enough detail that I could get
it running on a BSD box or a Mac OSX box.

My opinion: the main problem was the presentation. It had all the information you need to get started with procmail, but I'd probably take notes before using the information, or highlight passages so I could find things easily.

Of course I may be wrong, but I would suspect that an O'Reilly site with
a name like "BSD Dev" might just be targeted at *nix geeks ;) YMMV

Scary thought. If I could follow the article, that must mean that I'm at least a baby geek - nooooo!

Excuse me - I have to go away and read large chunks of Thomas Hardy to restore my identity.
