785 unread messages in NetNewsWire

I don’t read blogs for three days, and this is what happens … 785 messages, where 150 probably are worth bookmarking and 50 actually merit closer reading. Damn.

The last time I tried to somehow work through the backlog of messages that had accumulated, I ended up just hitting “Mark all read” on a thousand or so … inducing a feeling of calm and relaxation. Maybe I’ll do it this time, too.

First of all, though, I need to get rid of all the stuff that I should blog about but can’t.
So out with you, half-read and blog-worthy links before you get stale! (Trust me, all are worth following.)
