What I've been Up to Lately

  • Those kids have instruments... and they're gigglingNew Orleans for a Week for NTEN's Nonprofit Technology Conference
  • hitotoki dcGathering Hitotoki Submissions
  • Still hitting the gym every AM.
  • Trying to get rid of some of my 13 projects at work as I'm totally overloaded - making use of in the process and a handy dandy video Inbox Zero on how to keep my inbox empty presented by 43folders author Merlin Mann.
  • Working on some freelance stuff to keep my mind busy.
  • Resigning as Condo President - feels great.
  • Twittering like mad
  • Being sad that the person who might have helped revive the twittermeter over at terraminds appears to have been shut down as the site is not responding.

Tough Call

I just tried to unsubscribe my email address from some spam coming from "" and this is the message that comes up after clicking "I wish to unsubscribe from all NewsMax e-mails.":

Would you like to continue to receive NewsMax News Alerts and no longer get 3rd party advertisements?

And the choices are "Yes" and "No."

If I say "Yes", I'll continue to receive these annoying emails from Newsmax, but I won't receive 3rd party emails... not that I knew I was getting those anyway.

If I say "No", I'll stop receive the ones I'm unsubscribing from, but there's a logical opportunity for me to start receiving 3rd party emails. What to do...

I clicked "No". And I hate whatever the heck NewsMax is. Shame on them.

Here's the confirmation text: We will process your subscription change request in the next 24-48 business hours and send you a confirmation of your selections.

48 business hours = 6 business days. Assholes!
