Automatic mail for tchrist [Re: Re: [perl #95160] Unicode readdir bugs]
Message ID:
    |  This is automatic mail from Tom Christiansen's answering service.  |

    I've got six weeks of work to do in that number of days, so I'll be
    be almost entirely out of email-touch during that time.  From July 25-29th
    I'll be attending OSCON in Portland, and over weekend of August 12-14th
    I'll be attending my high-school reunion in Lake Geneva--and celebrating
    being done with updating Programming Perl.  Cue the fireworks.

    In the meanwhile, I will not in general be reading, let alone answering, 
    any incoming email.  The five exceptions are as follows, with suggested 
    tags to add to the subject line to make sure I notice them:

 #1:  Life-and-death situations -- why are you using email for that?
	(e.g.) Subject: [1=DYING]       blah blah blah

 #2:  Personal family matters of my own relations -- again, try the phone.
	(e.g.) Subject: [2=FAMILY]      blah blah blah

 #3:  Issues @work w/my University textmining job *INVOLVING ME PERSONALLY*.
	(e.g.) Subject: [3=WORK]        blah blah blah

 #4:  Prepping my 4.5h of Unicode talks for next week's conference in Portland.
	(e.g.) Subject: [4=OSCON]       blah blah blah

 #5:  Prepping a kilopage of the Camel Book's 4th ed. for Production by mid-August.
	(e.g.) Subject: [5=BOOK]        blah blah blah

    Because I will *disconnecting my laptop from the Internet* so I can
    actually get something done, I'll be answering mail twice a day *only*:

	1) once              cheerfully between 5-7am MDT (UTC-0600)
	2) once perhaps rather grumpily between 6-8pm MDT (UTC-0600)

    I'm a morning person, so those are the only two choices you're liable to
    get: gleeful or glowering, with little middle ground.  I expect to answer 
    no mail outside those five special categories listed above until well into
    August.  It **might** happen, but never count on it.

    Thank you for your forebearance.
