Autoreply: Hello. I may not receive your message until Thursday 6/28/07. Please
phone if it's urgent.
You may think that simple message is not out of the ordinary. But you would be wrong. That auto-reply out-of-office reminder arrived tonight in response to an email I sent last November. What's even funnier is that my email was sent to an email listserve so, it's quite possible that hundreds of mountain bikers from all over western Washington are getting autoreplies tonight to messages they sent eight months ago.
