I have always been subscribed to a ton of different mailing lists, and I’ve enjoyed reading the huge amount of mails. Now, however, I find it increasingly harder and harder to find the needed time to follow the lists, when I do have time I end up pressing ctrl-r (mark entire thread read) most of the time. So enough is enough, I have decided that I’m going to reduce the amount of lists I’m following and unsubscribe from the following lists:
- the EPIC (enhanced programmable irc client) list.
- the pear-general list
- the phpclasses notification list
- the webwork development list
- the audioscrobbler development list
- focus linux
- my old university’s lists
I am currently using the “irssi”:http://www.irssi.org/ IRC client because of lack of time to maintain my own script for epic.
It mostly just contains new version announcements and general questions anyways.
Useful classes are submitted every now and then but I have yet to find one I would use.
Interesting list with good discussions but I just don’t have time to keep up with it.
I’m not even using webwork. I might re-subscribe if I start using it.
Interesting service, but I’m currently not using audioscrobbler.
One of SecurityFocus’ various lists. Quite interesting, but frankly for me the debian-security-announce list is enough.
I’m finally going to cut my connections to the old university in Sweden and see if I can somehow get removed from their lists.
This should hopefully half the amount of mail I get daily.
