Just In Case You Didn't Get The Memo...

Posting a patch to a development mailing list with something like

*** please do not ignore ***

at the top of the email is quite possibly the best way to get me to ignore your email.

News flash people! Open source developers review patches sent to mailing lists when they have the time. They're not going out of their way to ignore anyone, and implying that your patch is somehow special and deserves to be dealt with rightfuckingnowdamnit instead of when the developer has time is just egocentric and rude.

  1. Did you ever manage to locate the Aimee Mann recording of "Shed A Little Light"? This particular episode ("College Kids") re-aired tonight on Bravo and I was intrigued by this song as well. Google led me to you, so I thought I'd ask if you ever managed to locate the song.
