Emailing Richard

This page used to say:

You are welcome to email me. I enjoy getting email.
... but i no longer enjoy getting email as I get too much and I feel very guilty about not being able to read it all. So rather than emailing me please just come by at then end of a lecture and chat to me then.

If you feel you must email me then, to increase the chance of it being read, please read the following notes first:

STEP 1: Use the correct subject line

The subject line should describe what the mail is about. Please spend 20 seconds or so and select a thoughful subject line for your email message to me. This is a wonderful habit to get into generally for all your email.

For example:

comp1A Ass #3 - when will the spec be released?

Thanks!

STEP 2: Use the correct address

If you are ... then mail me at the address ...
