vacation autoreply

This year one of our sysadmins set up the possibility for our people to have a vacation autoreply for their mail.

Is it just me, or are vacation autoreplies worse than the problem they solve ? I’ve never agreed with the need for them – to me, email is a more convenient letter in the post, but with the same obligation of speed of response, so it’s fine to be away for a week and not reply yet.

But it’s just really annoying for the people that aren’t on holiday to continuously receive double the email. And it’s doubly worse when those people on holiday still send out mails, causing you to reply. It’s like a honey trap!

Maybe I’m just getting old and grumpy on the last day of the year.

  1. Hey,

    I am trying to figure out few camera applications that can sit on top of gstreamer. Do you have any info on that?

    Thanks,
    Joe

  2. Joe,

    not sure what you’ re asking exactly. Are you asking for camera applications that use GStreamer ? Flumotion is one, Cheezy is another.
