While I was making Mechannibals, I didn’t have much chance to catch up with the wider world online. As a result NetNewsWire faithfully syphoned up a ridiculous number of unread blog posts… most of which I never read.
This morning, it topped well over 4,500 unread. This afternoon, I’ve managed to get it back down to: none. Oh happy, happy day.
Quite how I can avoid that ever happening again, I’ve no idea. And really, I should have been trying to do the same with my email inbox. Maybe next weekend, since I seem to have have a zillion or so open browser tabs, each containing an interesting article. Drat.
[update: Tee-hee. I just tried to command+tab to NetNewsWire, and suffered a moment of confusion. Without the red-flashed ‘unread posts’ count, I didn’t recognise the icon.]
