numb with cold
Here's a funny thing that many may not know:
When you see the 7N notice on your front page, that means you have seven UNREAD notes in your received folder. Why haven't you read them? Once you do, that notice goes away.
I was under the impression that some folks read them, then mark them as unread so that the little notice stays up as a reminder to reply to that note or reference it, if they haven't already.
