Just a quick note to say again, for those who might have missed it last time, that I'm trying to keep e-mail from taking over my life and my brain. To that end, I am trying not to check it on weekends and in the evenings, and to confine it to regular 'work hours'. I sometimes fail at that, but that is the plan, and I will likely take an entire week off from it over Christmas as well. So if you're used to a super-fast response time from me�well, it is likely to happen less often. Even if you see me on Facebook, that doesn't mean I've actually checked my e-mail, or intend to anytime soon. And yes, that includes Facebook messages too, which are another form of e-mail.
On the plus side, I'm also trying to keep my e-mail inbox clear, so if all goes well, we should no longer have the e-mails that sit unanswered for months (or, cough, years) on end. I'm aiming to have it all answered by the end of each week. We'll see how it goes.
