Gotta have it

The BBC News is currently running an article titled, Loss of e-mail worse than divorce. A study shows that for some people the stress involved with the loss of e-mail is tantamount to marriage, divorce, or moving home.

Electronic mail is playing such a key role in companies that most people start to get annoyed after just 30 minutes without e-mail access, the study found.

And when something goes wrong with e-mail for a week, the experience can be more traumatic than moving home, getting married, or divorce, at least for a third of those taking part in the survey.

As you might expect, the results of this survey don’t surprise me too much.
