Guys, I mean, I love ya'll, but -- wtf? In my work email... Ok, don't bring problems, bring solutions:

The presence of ads makes it hard to ignore the email experience...

As a project manager, I want the experience of 'checking my email' to be as emotionally neutral as possible.

So that, I don't feel as if I can't control one of my most frequently used communication channels.

I have enough trouble herding cats all day long, I don't need another constant reminder that I'm sitting behind a computer screen instead of out climbing a mountain.

Thank you for your time.

This makes me smile =)

Some things in life must be experienced first-hand before they can be understood...Trying to explain climbing, without ever having experienced climbing, is a fool's errand. 
Since January 4, when the New York Times ran a story about Kevin Jorgenson and Tommy Caldwell's Dawn Wall climb in Yosemite, commenters have lined up in droves to dump on the climbers' attempt. (See AJ's coverage, Why Is Climbing the Dawn Wall Such a Big Deal?) ...

This indoor Japanese farm uses LED lights and hydroponics to produce lettuce 2.5 times faster, with just 1% of the water, when compared to an outdoor farm.

Helpful, friendly, and very accommodating towards non-pros. Some lumber yards are only good at interacting with carpenters, not this place. I'm new to woodworking and they helped me pick exactly what I needed. I will be back. Thanks!

The closest thing to a NJ bagel store you'll find in Austin. Get the Taylor-egg-and cheese on an everything bagel.
