I think there's a fixed lower bound on the number of email messages I can have in my inbox... 9. Everytime I've gone to clean my inbox in the past two weeks, the minimum messages I've got down to is 9. However, for people that check my inbox on occasion (you losers! you know who you are....), you'll note that I finally removed that message at the top that had been there since march 1st... yes folks, I finally after almost a year made my six-month check-up appointment with an op·tom·e·trist (pronounciation marks provided for your convenience, and because I just copy/pasted it from dictionary.com). So uh.... now I guess I'm going to bring some forms up to Megan and Dana for our housing application stuff, if Erik gets his slow un·de·ci·sive ass down here anytime soon. Then Eli's off to class and I'm going to watch Rain Man on DVD... never seen it before.

Your inbox

Ahem! We're the losers for checking your inbox?! You are the one who decided to publish this on a public page. :-) Mind you, I can't even send you an email without involuntarily publishing my name, email address and subject line to anyone who's interested. (New contacts would also do so unknowingly in addition to involuntarily.)

Don't worry, Brad; I'm just yanking your chain. My personal perspective is that I have enough of a difficult time with hackers that I would never voluntarily open up my servers' private data to the general public.

Re: Your inbox

I have filters setup, not to show some people's names and not other people's subjects.... I can screen you if you want.

Re: Your inbox

Nah... that's ok. You may have missed my point; it's not just my mail. (I was just using first-person because it's clearer.)

Actually, from a personal perspective, it makes for an interesting challenge. Sharp-eye'd viewers are able to figure out exactly what's going on, and that fact alone adds some spark to the whole negotiation process. :-)
