Out of office this week

This post is more than 2 years old.

Since I consider Out of Office email auto responders to be the spawn of the devil (I've gotten maybe 100 this holiday season and frankly I despise them - if you can't at least configure them to respond to a unique email once, then you are no better than most spammers), I thought I'd drop a quick note to let folks know I'll be off this week. As always, the 'rule' is to not find any major bugs in my software while I'm on vacation. ;)

If you send email, most likely I will not respond until later this week, so please keep that in mind.

And to my readers - may your Christmas be at least 1000 times better than this horrible final Saints game I'm watching.

I feel your pain - the Ravens are being shut out by Seattle as I write this as well :(

Even so, a very Merry Christmas to you as well!

I am away from my usual blog reading habits and will return on Jan. 2, 2008. I will read your post at that time.

"if you can't at least configure them to respond to a unique email once, then you are no better than most spammers"

Really? Isn't it a much more efficient use of your time to create one "out of office" rather than a bunch of targeted ones?

You are misreading that line. It means - "only respond one time to a unique address", so if a@a.com emails me twice, he only gets one OOO notice.

As it stands, this blog entry is almost 4 years old. Most OOO settings support this.

That being said - I still hate OOO notices.
