I can get pretty bad at responding to e-mail. This is an experiment to
see whether the negative reinforcement of seeing just how old a
message is will help me be more responsive. Either that, or I can
strive for a Mean Time Between Responses of whatever... ;)
Hmm, maybe I should combine this with my blog and start distinguishing
between E-mail to and Reply to...

(t (format "%d days ago" days)))
