I just got back from 4 days in Washington D.C. participating in a Human-Machine Interface experiment using Swarthmore’s Urban Search & Rescue robots. More on that later.
As it happens, we didn’t have Internet access while we were down there, so I now have a metric ton of e-mail to wade through. Here’s a quick break down:
- Inbox: 42 messages
- Reserved Students: 30 messages
- Prof. Maxwell: 3 messages
- Computer Science department: 3 messages
- SCCS (Swarthmore College Computer Society) Staff: 64 messages
- SCDC (Swarthmore Coalition for the Digital Commons): 4 messages
- SLUG (Swarthmore Linux Users Group): 83 messages
- SWIL (Swarthmore Warders of Imaginative Literature) Chat: 190 messages
- SWIL Debate: 100 messages
- SWIL Fun: 13 messages
- SWIL Geek Chat: 3 messages
- SWIL Presidents: 3 messages
- SWIL Webmaster: 17 messages
- My parental units: 2 messages
That’s a grand total of 558 e-mails, in only a 4 day period. Admittedly, I haven’t sorted out the spam yet; the new style of spam, with large blocks of random text, is very good at defeating Apple Mail’s Bayesian filters. In fact, not a single one of those messages got marked as Junk; I wonder how many of them actually are junk. ::sigh:: Stupid spammers!
Anyway, I’d better get to work reading all of this. I also have a SWAPAzine to write before SWIL Inauguration starts. Tonight at midnight I pass the mantle of the co-presidency.
So tired. So very, very tired…
