An Administrative Note

— compiled by Wombat-socho Silicon Valley delenda est. In The Mailbox is going on hiatus until (at least) April 19. I’m putting in around ten hours a day in the tax mines, which leaves me just enough time to eat, sleep…yeah, that’s about it. See you when the Death March to April 18 is over. […]

The agency said that emails stored on dead drives […]
