If you send me an important email and I don't reply, you should assume I didn't get it. Maybe send it again with return-receipt to make sure. (if you send me a "funny" link and I don't reply, GTFO)
Fucking hell, I swear everyone is fired. How is this so hard. Sometimes I think that the project I should really be working on (something that would actually be important and make a difference in the world to a lot of people) is making a new internet from scratch. Fully encrypted and peer-to-peer so governments can never monitor it, and no corporate overlord controls the backbone, and text-only so fucking flash or whatever can never ruin it. Maybe no advertising either, like the good old days. But even if I built it, no one would come because it wouldn't have porn or lolcats or videos of nut-shots.
