Not only is my brain about to explode from programming, but so far today I've personally read over 8,000 emails. That seems like a lot, doesn't it? I'm between a third and a quarter of the way through — much of it is spam, but because I get so much spam (about two thousand a day these days, which is a huge reduction from the past at least) there are enough false positives that I have to view them all manually periodically. I figure I can read at about 1,000 wpm (that sounds higher than it is, I'm sure many of you read faster) though so that's not too bad (and I'm just skimming).
Let's take a look in the BME mailbag:
I hate penises! They are so gross! Especially when the balls are bigger than the penis. EW EW EW!!!!!!!
Aaaaanyway…. To keep people in the loop as to my update schedule, I'm not planning on uploading anything from here in the hotel, but I am prepping the update as I write this. We move into our new place on the first, and then it'll probably take me about six hours to write and test the second stage of my update software. Assuming the DSL connection is solid I anticipate starting to update the site again on the third… To those of you sending me hatemail about this, I understand your displeasure, but please try and cut me some slack. I haven't had more than five consecutive days off now in over seven years!
