Dreadful Vacations

Few days scare me more than those when I return from a vacation (as in yesterday). I take certain measures to ease the pressure, e.g.:

  • Mail auto-responder/s are set up to suppress incoming messages
  • Wikis for correspondence (IM equivalent which updates a few times a day) are locked or put on hold
  • Disappearance from Web logs and forums
  • No involvement in newsgroups and mailing lists

Despite all, E-mail, newsgroups, and feeds require catching up upon return. Even worse, additional reasons to worry lurk around the corner:

  • One can forgot what has recently happens in the field of IT
  • Orientation within API‘s gets eroded
  • Breakage of Web sites or pages
  • Shortage in updates, resulting in reduced crawling
  • Electronic moderation, approval, and authorisation are delayed
  • Site spam in its various forms
  • An extensive list of tasks which cannot not be handled remotely
  • Backups which are long-overdue

So, moments after a vacation are perhaps good moments to stay isolated… and catch up.
