What if you woke up and had no email? That’s what’s happened to me this morning. Of course, I don’t believe it. And I have emailed my tech guy, but he’s not up yet. And yes, I’ve tried a test mail to me too, and that isn’t showing up in web mail, let alone here on my computer where it belongs
It’s weird. I got my first computer, an Apple II+ in 1978 or ’79, and I must have been online shortly after that. And I haven’t gone a single day from that first log in, whenever it was, without some email.
Not having email is like some sort of silence in the background. I’ve felt this before, when I’ve gone away for a few days and not taken a computer with me. Actually, I kind of like it. Brings me back to the days when we had (snail) mail, and telephones and maybe fax. I never liked fax much and mostly skipped over that era. When someone asks for a fax number I’m stymied… almost.
Am I expecting anything truly important via email today? I can’t remember, although I suspect nothing that’s truly critical.
Something almost similar happened a month or so ago. When I first logged in there was no email. I was just starting to do the stuff one does in cases like this – you know, tear my hair, reboot the computer, etc. when it unplugged itself and a storm of email arrived.
Since today I can’t even see it on the server, it may be gone forever, or maybe not. We shall see.
Meanwhile, I”m going to work.
Time passes… and sure enough, here comes the flood of email. I think I’m grateful?!
