Item: the email server at work has not delivered ONE SINGLE email to me in almost 48 hours. Not even spam. There appear to be up to 140,000 queued messages for the faculty sitting on it. The nice man from IT promised on Monday he'd fix me by yesterday. We met today and he explained it would be 48 hours to fix anything and a complete sort-out could take a week.
Item: Gmail, which I am using as a temporary replacement (the interface drives me nuts) decided at some unknown point in the I-hope-recent past that much of my real mail should go to the spam filter, so now I have to search through up to 20413 pages of spam (100 entries per page) looking for the real mail.
Bonus item: I have a cold.
