My friend Pierre blogs that you’re as likely to lose an email as the checked bag on your next flight:
“More email is lost than I thought. The loss rate is at least 0.7%, or 7 messages in 1,000 . If you send ten messages a day, this means 25 will go astray in a year.”
Ten messages a day? Far more than that at the office.
But, if you think that you’ve lost an email that someone says they sent your way, be sure to check your junk mail folder.
Random bit of the day: And of course, there’s fun in watching the video at this link, where Bill Gates teamed up with Napoleon Dynamite from PDC 2005.
