Having a baby in the house again reminds me how wonderful asynchronous communication is. @maiki and I have been having a slow conversation, and it's great.

I would prefer to be able to reply right away of course, but I just reply when I can, they reply when they can. It all works out. :)

@timotheus Yeah, we don't really I in IM. And I wish other folks saw the value of that.

There are only two notifications I pay attention to: jabber from Susan, and anything my bots tell me. Because they don't bother me like Stark's armbots, they just let me know when a website is broken.

Everyone else, all you beautiful people, you can take a number and get in line. Fortunately, you can also get along with your life at the same time!
