Currently, the only way to contact me is by e-mail. I know not having an instant messenger effectively makes me a social paria, but without continuous Internet and the desire to lose my spare time to the seas of inania, it's an easily resisted temptation. (Update August 2006: I've had IM and broadband for about five years now, but I still don't care much for it.) So by all means drop me a line through that old trusty e-mail, but being a notorious slack-ass, I make no guarantees as to replies. I do, however, guarantee that all e-mail to the address below gets read.
I categorize incoming e-mail in two practical categories: junk and non-junk. Junk to me are self-obvious or trivial questions (RTFM!), unsolicited business offers, homework questions (you'd be surprised; people asking me for an in-depth report on some camera they saw on eBay), questions that could have been solved by actually reading my site, or mail that commands me to do something.
Otherwise I'm the happy smiley guy. I appreciate and enjoy feedback, and also don't mind being corrected. Additional information – bring it on. Corrections – bring them on. Scans, books or manuals – always welcome.
I'm not so tough. Just give it a try.
Note: please, please, please, for the sake of my spam filter, give your mail a clear, unambiguous, non-spammy subject line. Not good is stuff like "Hi" or "About your site". Better is "About Alfred's Camera Page" or "Looking for Horizon-202 production data", that has much more chance of making it past my trash bin.
