The best way is, and probably always will be, is to email me. I respond much quicker to an email than I will any other form of communication … but yes, even an email reply can take a couple of weeks. Because of spam – I no longer give out my email address (so freely).
Your best bet is to create an account on the forums and then you can send me a Private Message OR you can the link below or on the menu to “Email Carl?” and send me a message right from the website. After that, I may be more than willing to hand over that email address you came looking for.
Phone calls are reserved for my trusted friends. Actually, a couple months ago, I just unplugged my land line completely and now pretty much only use my cell phone (and most likely I’ve got it muted or in the other room anyway).
As for the IM services, I do have have them … AOL, MSN, Yahoo, ICQ, Google. And, just like my email, once we chat through the services on my site I’m sure I’ll be happy to share my alias with you (maybe … it’s probably harder to get my IM aliases then my email).
So what are you waiting for? Click and ask that question you forgot cause you sat and read this whole dribble.
