Damnit, damnit, damnit, damnit DAMNIT!


Man, I'm so pissed at myself right now. Get this. For probably more than a year now, I haven't been checking my email. Damnitall. The last time I did an install on my desktop system at home (where I check spiffle mail), I guess I forgot to put the spiffle emails on my Eudora install (I check mail from five domains on that Eudora install; four other domain checks are on my notebook, three on my Mac).

I get so much mail (read: so much spam) that I guess I never really noticed. Only yesterday, when Jean said she sent something from my Mom to me, and I said, I never got it, did I put two and two together and figure out I didn't get the mail cuz My stupid ass didn't have Eudora set up to check Email


So the last five hours I've had the very pleasant task of downloading 8,812 email messages from the server having my filters trash about 90% of them (I'm not kidding), then I manually trashed another 4 or 5%, then I went through all the trashed files to see if I missed any legit emails. All that FUCKING spam.

And then I set to the task of ANSWERING all the emails with an apologetic, "hi, I'm a bonehead" response.

Sorry folks. Grr. No espresso for me. But the mail is moving. I'm also going to kill the mark@spiffle email address soon, and set up mprince@spiffle, due to all the spam the mark@ address gets. the mark@ address is my oldest currently existing email addie, and the volume of spam it gets is staggering. On the order of like 15 or 20 a day.

And if you emailed me in like the last 15 months or so, and didn't get a response, you now know why. My humblest apologies.
