Awww shoot. But we can always tell ourselves that Think Different applies to EudoraMac too and maybe my strategy would never have worked anyhow ...?

Yeah, maybe. I didn’t want all those e-mails anyway, just the few that came in before I had the good sense to turn Eudora off for a while.

That's the same with Mail. I don't leave my email on my server, although that is a Pref. It won't delete mail by default.

The telephone was simpler, especially if we go back to when we could expect to miss a call.

I still can miss a call (no cell phone).

Always the wrong one, it turns out. Somehow all the fundraiser calls get through just fine!

I don't call it missing a call if you have voice mail or an answering machine. In the OLD days, the caller was the one who had to make the effort to call again. Nowadays, we are often asked, in an affronted tone, where we were that we couldn't be reached, as if it's our fault the caller couldn't reach us.<G>

We're altogether too much in contact with the world. I haven't noticed it has improved the state of our nation, but I'm so used to it, I feel "lost" without at least having email.

I haven’t heard that — think I would give the caller a piece of my mind in that case.

I agree with the first part for sure. As for e-mail, the jury is still out.

P.S. — I have been thinking about you. Guess you are safely out of reach of the horrendous fires? Wonder how friends (especially Jonathon and Linea) around San Diego are faring. And what’s happening in Claremont?

Exactly. By someone with a private number who failed to leave a message on my answering machine, and couldn't be bothered trying the mobile (I give out the number twice on my message) or fax, or send an e-mail to any of my 10 or so addresses...
