Japanese Gargoyle of Email Destruction
at a craftman's workshop in Otsu, Japan
( email troubles have been part of Japan's cultural lore for centuries )

I've used Emacs as my primary email client since about 1982, and for the first time in those 30+ years it inexplicably deleted my entire queue of unread mail (about 1,400 messages) when I tried to load the last day's worth of new mail this morning. Doh!

The thought of losing 1,400 messages awaiting my attention was both frightening and liberating. Sadly, I keep good automatic backups (in this case with Crashplan), so I was able to recover my mail queue as it stood a few hours ago.

As I mentioned yesterday, I've not been too attentive to email lately so hadn't even tried to load new mail for about the last day, so anything sent to me in the last day or so is lost. Sorry.

Most people who send me email don't read my blog so I suppose this won't do any good, but if you've sent something in the last day or so, please resend.

(The huge gargoyle seen above is the kind that normally adorns a temple roof's peak, such as the one seen in the following photos.)
