Technology Recommendation for contacting J&P Notes Response Time
1.Email Do use as appropriate. Recommended as first means of communications. Note that we are using many different email addresses. Don’t be confused with ‘Reply-To’ address that differs from From address.

Typical schedule for checking emails are three (3) times per day – Morning, Noon, Afternoon.

1.Minutes, Hours, up to a Day or two or so.
2.Telephony (cell phones) Do use as appropriate. No unsolicited calls!! We are on state- and federal- no-call lists. Calls from unknown numbers are typically not answered and/or handled through filtering service. 0.Instant (known) – minutes or hours (unknown, leaving msg)
3.FaceTime, Skype, … VoIP Friends only. No unsolicited contact requests – we block and report as spam as soon as possible. 0.Instant (known)
4.Social Networks (Facebook, LinkedIn, …) Friends only. We are quite restrictive and when use, only using services with close and current friends.
Also, infrequently use. Don’t expect fast responses. Btw, J *is NOT* on Facebook and will never be. (Social Network Dangers)
5.Mail (regular, e.g. United States Postal Service USPS, Postverket…) Do NOT use. As also noted in press (e.g. Sweden and US), quality of postal services have decreased dramatically over the years, something we very much have experienced first hand (e.g. in both Dallas and Austin, TX), resulting in us decreasingly using mail. We are infrequently and rarely checking mail boxes (goes for addresses in Sweden, Finland, and US). Problems include lost mail, receiving mail intended for neighbors, receiving mail despite being on no-junkmail lists – both companies that disregard requests and postal services delivering to wrong address. Mail is NOT good service.

You can safely expect serious delays of both us receiving and acting on mail, if ever arrive.

Important Note: You can also safely assume that mail sent to us from unknown senders being rather immediately discarded without any attempt to being opened. Too many ‘Urgent’, ‘Open Immediately’, ‘Personal’ et c with only an additional offer for cars, loans, et c. Crying Wolf and all that…

4.Typically 1-2 months. Shorter when sender sends notification via email. (If not lost in the first place…)
6.DHL/FedEx/UPS/… Alternative to Mail If need to send documents and/or you don’t have means to 1) scan and 2) encrypt, DO use courier services. BUT – first make sure to confirm suitable delivery address (must be done before each shipment to coordinate with travel patterns. We may not be in the city you think we are.) 2.Day(s).
7.Telefax No longer available. Since decades of use, we finally stopped last fax line in 2014. After 25 yrs… (1989-2014) 6.N/A
8.Telepathy Attempts NOT allowed! Not really believers but who are we to say it cannot be done… Though, as much wish for as for cellular services being allowed in airplanes while flying. Who – at their right mind – wants to hear the seat neighbor loudly talk about latest gossip?! Nuff’s enough! 6.N/A
