• Need to inform my visitors and clients when I'm unavailable or hard(er) to reach, be it for vacations, business/traveling, etc.
  • Don't want to write an entire post about it; it's a short status info only.


  • Make it apparent to visitors when I'm temporarily unavailable or hard(er) to reach.


  • Provide a block that (permanently?) shows very short, tweet-alike status messages.
  • Only expose the block if there are any messages currently.
  • Each message gets up to 255 chars, a publishing date, and a unpublish/obsolete date.
