I'm sitting here doing some multi-tasking this morning, babysitting the running of some build scripts remotely (through VPN and PCAnywhere) on a client's dev server and catching up on my blog reading. Remember that I was offline for about 10 days so there were a bunch piled up. To be fair there were a bunch piled up before I left, but that's insignificant :)
Things were going well on the blog reading front, I was moving along at a good pace and I had everything read except for The Daily Grind, Scott Guthrie, and Jason Haley. I usually try not to read those daily because I know I will want to read their posts in depth and/or follow a bunch of links to read other things. I tend to let those build up over the week and read them all over the weekend. Sometimes I let too much time slip by and they really pile up! Anyway, back to the story. I was knocking them off left and right and I had just finished up about 10 old posts from Scott Hanselman, when all of a sudden...
A whole bunch of "jerks" decided that lunch time was as good as any to take care of posting to their "neglected blogs". Now I have even more folders taunting me with their evil boldness, letting me know that it's nothing but a big neverending un-winnable game.
BTW, the offenders in no significant order describing my current hatred level for their inconsideration to my spring-cleaning activities: Jason Follas talking about adolescent arcade game fantasies, Jim Holmes and some nonsense about food and agile development, James Higgs with two posts - one about Google and one about Amazon, a new CS tip from Jaxon, and some more unintelligible gibberish from Sam Gentile. Thanks gents, I hope your day is going as productively as mine :)
BTW, if you work with or are interested in Subversion or NAnt and don't follow James Higgs, you should. Sam Gentile will be speaking about Web Services at the Dayton .NET Developer's Group on June 28th - so don't miss it.
