An open letter to my email inbox

Tuesday, February 17th, 2009

Your days of making me feel overwhelmed are numbered. "1713 messages, 221 unread" doesn't intimidate me any more. I am armed and I know enough to be dangerous.

  • Gigantic todo-list text file: Processed.
  • Desktop: Cleared.
  • Bookmarks toolbar: Reclaimed*.
  • Stacks of snail mail: Dealt with.

Inbox: You're next.

*Thanks to bug 477751 for forcing me to go through dozens of bookmarks one at a time instead of trying to sort them first.
