The same thing that gave me the power to quit the addiction that was RSS… 😉 I envy you, as I’m not able to do it. 1774 unread items. And counting. Nooooo, we’ve lost another to the will of Satan. Oh yeah… best time to do it is at the return from a long holiday. Here here. I recently let go of over 9 month’s worth of unread feeds totalling over 4,500 posts in Bloglines. Huh? 🙂 It is a beautiful thing for those in bondage to unread email. Be free, Matt, be free. Congratulations! No such thing in Google Reader 🙁 Congratulations! For some of us it has become as much a daily ritual as drinking coffee and scratching ourselves in intimate places 🙂 Good. You’re now ready to get married. You will need this valuable freedom after 6 hours of complaints regarding farting while watching the t.v. show, “House.” Simply “mark all as read,” in your mind, and the “cloud of no hearing” will slowly descend. once you have tasted that freedom, you will very quickly graduate to the keyboard shortcut to mark all as read…. HaHa Good on ya, Matt! Command-K (NetNewsWire) is great. The other one is File->Unsubscribe. Absolutely refreshing! Me too, just this evening I cleared out the 200 or so real, not spam, actually need a response emails I had lying around. It feels good. I do that sort of thing every 6 months on my inbox. Move all old mails to a INBOX – 2006 folder and forget about it. Works wonders. You’ve inspired me! 🙂 […] The thing about being away is that stuff collects.. My bloglines aggregator is now chock a block with feeds containing 20 or more posts. A few sites such as /. and el register have hit the max of 200. I shall probably do the equivalent of mark all as read for many of them. I already did that several times in Thunderbird! […] Comments are closed.
