You know, it's really not nice to do this sort of thing at the end of a
long, hard week. I have had enough trouble keeping my sanity the past few
day, this sort of thing doesn't help.
I just sat down and saw a message about Volvos in my sun-rescue folder and
said, "Fscking mail client, can't even sort my mail right... Why is it
putting mail from the Volvo 1800 list in with sun-rescue!?"
And then I realized I was witnessing the mailing list cross-over of the
century. Good thing nobody mentioned the 1800 yet or I'd be in a mental
institution right now.
