[maemo-community] A rant on 25th-hour hysterics...

In terms of mailing lists: I follow -community in a non-digest way  
(but only since quite recently as the midgard stuff was of little  
interest to me); -developers again in non-digest form; -users as a  
digest (which was quite bad as I missed some useful stuff, I've now  
taken to reading it more carefully).

I scan ITT "New Posts" a few times per day and contribute fairly often  
(and tend to forget threads I've contributed to, so please remind me  
if someone's looking for an answer!); I look at the maemo.org page and  
News every couple of days; I don't often look at the wiki unless  
there's something specific (i.e. I don't tend to track changes on  
anything other than the DSP Programming page, which I still need to  
update.... sorry!).

I do lurk on IRC most days, though how much I see and interact really  
depends on whether I'm in the office or the lab, and whether I'm  
sitting waiting for code to run (and can pay some attention to the  
window) or am hard at work writing code/reports (and it all passes me  
by). I don't tend to look at the IRC logs unless it's something  
specific I'm searching for (and my IRC client thankfully doesn't have  
a very long history ;), I certainly don't look back over the last  
night's log every morning.

I think that pretty much sums it up for me :)
