in reply to Best way to get in touch with me

Heck, I can't stand cell phones. My company wants to pay for one, and I still don't want it. I feel their very invasive of my personal space. Someone can bother me at any time, and if it's a work phone I can't keep it off. Heck, I sometimes don't answer my home phone if I'm in the middle of things - I don't like being a slave to it.

I have a two-way pager - I need to be contactable for work, but if you don't merit a response during my off hours, you don't get a response. I annoy people when they page me with the message "call me", and I respond "No. Tell me what the issue is." You're the snob assuming I'm near a phone. Anyone I actually work with knows I don't carry a mobile. If I need to call, I have a work calling card they got me because I refused to take the cell, but 99 44/100% of the calls I can answer with a pager or actually need to log on, so a phoen wouldn't help anyway.

Let me get off my soapbox now.

    I have to agree with your comments on this one. Sounds like the two-way pager is a neat little trick. I've got a cell but that still does not help with most of the problems. I generally have to be at my machine, so emailing me would be better in most cases.. but oh well.
