it's about creating solutions
Please be aware that I use a
naive bayesian filter
to decide whether your email might be important to me.
I might also be: sick, on leave, without an internet
connection, sleeping, ignoring you, thinking about my
reply, trying to find the info you asked for, talking to other
people in real life, speed skating, cycling, playing
chess, petting my cats or having other things to do that are more
important for me. So yes, it can really take some time before you get a
reply, if it can not wait that long you should not have used email
in the first place.
If you really need a quick response you should use the phone. But than
again I might be i.e.: sick, on leave, out of cell tower range,
driving in a tunnel, speed skating, cycling, playing chess,
sleeping, showering, calling with someone, talking to
people in real life, not hearing my phone, letting my phone
ignore you, or just having an empty battery.
