I suppose there might be people who want to get a hold of me in person instead of waiting around for me to say something on this here site. I am happy to oblige, and there are a few ways you might run into me, at least in the virtual sense.
My email address is email@example.com, and I’m decent about replying to email. I do use a spam filter so make sure you don’t use subject lines like “GET FREE VIAGRA NOW” though. I also support and encourage encryption, especially for sensitive communications. My GPG public key appears below. If for whatever reason you suspect that my email is down my backup address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you want to chat with me on IM, I have accounts with most of the major services. I prefer AIM for personal communication (my Yahoo! account is flooded with work contacts as you might expect), and my handle there is
phamilton162. On Yahoo! Messenger I am
ironsoap; on MSN Messenger I go by
email@example.com. I’m familiar with Jabber and have several accounts for various services (like GTalk) but I don’t use them by default so they’re more of a by-request communication method.
I idle on IRC quite a bit, so if that is your preferred method of communication, let me know where you hang out or drop me an email if you want to know some of my channel-haunts. I’ll clue you in if you promise to take the secret oath and undergo a rigorous and painful hazing process.
I also have a few social networks you can use to contact me or see stuff I’m pumping into the ether: I’m on Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr. Please note though that I check these on average once a day depending on circumstances while I’m available on IM and check my email much more frequently so if you need to get in touch with me quickly, avoid these methods.
I also play on XBox Live, under the gamertag
ironsoap, so if you have a Live account you can look for me to play some games or voice chat. If you want to make me a friend, I’m probably down with that, but you might want to send me an email first explaining who you are so I don’t think you’re some psycho stalker or something. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
