This is a program somewhat similar to biff or xbiff for unix boxes. The
difference is that while biff watches a mailbox file (like Sabot on the
Amiga), Artemis connects to your POP3 mailhost via TCP/IP and queries how
many mails you have waiting.
biff was developed a long time ago by the BSD programmers at Berkeley
University in California. They named the program after one of authors' dog
because it had a habit of barking when the mailman came. Continuing this
tradition I named my program after one of our cats, Artemis. :-) No, Artemis
doesn't meow at the mailman. :^)
The biff story is at http://lab.housing.fsu.edu/Pages/didyou_biff.html.
