5 business days off (plus almost 2 weekends surrounding it) results in well over 1,000 emails (after sorting spam) and a few thousand items in my RSS reader.
3 power hours of working at it, and I’m down to < 250 email and only about 1,500 items in my RSS reader. Should be able to finish the catch up in the next few days. That’s got to be a record. I don’t think I’ve ever gotten so far in catching up so quickly.
