It was a lovely break from everything. I took my OQO (www.oqo.com) and
only switched it on to archive my photos. Only 1 work call I needed to
deal with, and no MailScanner work at all. Wonderful!
As for this weekend, I always prefer to catch up on most of my
outstanding mail before I go back to work. The first day or 2 back from
holiday is bad enough, without 3000 messages waiting to be read too. So
I catch up first in the undisturbed surroundings of home.
