email blip

hey yall.

if you sent me email between the 10th of October and yesterday (the 27th), I did not get it. I realize there's not much chance that people who sent me email in that time period are reading this, but this is the best way I have of reaching the plural unknown "You" out there, so there you have it. My apologies if I never respond to your inquiry.

Apparently, exactly as I was moving from Santa Cruz to Oakland, (which came up very suddenly, and took up way too much of my October), my email inbox overflowed*. Unaware, I decided that it would be a good time for me to take a bit of a break from the web, and I delayed setting up broadband in my new location. I thought I would be coming back to an inbox full of news and things I needed to respond to, but instead, I came back to an inbox that looked identical to when I left it. After a couple of test messages from other accounts, I've discovered that most people who emailed me probably did not get any message saying "message not received". So, this is that message.

*the thunderbird setting that orders my email to be "deleted from server when I delete a message or move it from my (Local) inbox" apparently does not work reliably, which resulted in my inbox eventually getting filled. 100Mb!
