Cold Turkey

Sorry, I've reached my saturation point in terms of information flow. My buffer filled up and started overwriting valuable parts of my brain. So first, I deleted all my bloglines subscriptions. 450+ subs daily was starting to get to me, and deleting the bookmark didn't seem to stop me from finding the site and refreshing every 10 minutes. So I wacked it (not before saving the OPML, of course). And as you may have noticed, I took a little break from blogging. This seems to have helped my sanity a bit. I didn't wake up this morning at 6:30 a.m. and immediately fire up my aggregator wondering what minor tech-news item I missed overnight. It took a few days, but it's nice.

Now I need to attend to my bills (I'm months behind), my family (in-laws are here for a visit), my emails (500+! personal emails and at least 200 work emails), and other miscellaneous life tasks.

I'll be back when I've caught up. Hmm. Let me restate that: I'll be back in a short while once I've made a small, tiny little dent in the rest of my life.
