About three years ago I did some design work for a major Australian automotive manufacturer - most of the time (12 months) I was on site and they set up an e-mail account on the company server for me. At one point I took two weeks off to go bush. When I arrived back I had 350 e-mails! It took me 5 hours to go through them (no span, get a bigger bleep etc - their filters are good) only three of the e-mails were things I needed to know about, the rest were CCs and "site wide" rubbish!

I remember when it was said computers would bring the "paperless office" about - I'm still waiting....

Don't start me on emails,

I have a bloody Team Leader who sits on a raised dias exactly 2.1 metres behind my workstation. The bleep sends me emails to tell me when to take a rest break. I suppose I shouldn't complain, at least it saves the cost of a phone call.

Hi Ian,
If the bugga had to make phone calls he would probably get a kick inthe pants for spending so much time on the phone and anyway he might get embarrassed as it would constitute harassment perhaps.

Emails arn't that personal, so to speak and so people are more likely to use emails for trivial stuff that they otherwise might think is irrelevant. Like my comments.
Regards,
Bruce.

Bruce,
Nah! A phone call would require a personal interreaction. An email allows him to remain clinically detached and, from his point of view "in control". I've worked out a way to drive the prick nuts.
Every time he emails me he asks for a "read reciept" I get the dialogue box that asks if I wish to send a read reciept and promptly check the "no" box. Now the guy is in a quandary, does he send another email to ask if I got the first email, does he pick up the phone, or does he actaually speak to me as if I were a real person.
Hell, it's bad when I'm reduced to playing these games. I justify it on the grounds that I will play "grown up" games hen I'm supervised by a "grown up".

Ian

Good to hear from you. I've tried a few expensive thing after that, but come to realization that a compass and map will do me fine.

How are you going with your trips up into the High Country?

If you spent more time on your emails and less on analysing you'd be better off...

Seriously I get 70-100 a day
