Yeap, Friday was only 7 hours of vacation by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #1 Mon Jun 28, 2010 at 12:32:01 PM EST
since I had to call into a conference call for a big Midwestern customer, and check email, and keep the devs on their toes.

I noticed a couple by TheophileEscargot (2.00 / 0) #2 Mon Jun 28, 2010 at 01:27:06 PM EST

I have office e-mail available on my phone (and at home, etc), but I usually just reply to the fun stuff (like cake warnings and so on) and leave the boring stuff until I return.

What is this "out of the office" that I keep hearing so much about?
