Cleaning. (Which I first wrote "Cleaming.")

Online spaces need cleaning, too. I had a LOT of e-mails that I didn't really need anymore. Now I have a lot fewer e-mails that I don't really need anymore.

"717 conversations in the Trash," my Gmail said a few minutes ago. Now that's at 0. Mostly notifications about comments in my journal, some library hold and "materials due soon" notices that were far out-of-date (I'd already gotten and returned those materials! None of that "What do I do? What do I do? This library book is 42 years overdue" stuff for me!), and Facebook and Twitter notices that I hadn't gotten around to erasing. Several hundred are erased now.

In other news, I need to clean physical places. *looks at stuff he could get rid of* Workin' on it, workin' on it...

Still! In the process of "not needing something, so getting rid of it," and that's good.

Random ad comment

I'm finding one benefit of Comcast re-branding itself as, let's see if I spell this right on the first try, Exfinity...

...forgetting that such corporate rebrandings often don't work (remember Allegis, anybody?) and often backfire...that said...

...the music in the Exfinity ads is actually kind of pretty.

How often do I remember ad music? Not often. So in that way, it's a good ad.

I'm not going to go to Comcast/Exfinity/whatever, though, so in that, it's not a good ad.

Still. Nice music.
