Giving up Phone and Email

Filed under: Uncategorized — Ryan Jones @ 12:00 am

A long time ago I gave up my main email accounts. If I had gotten around to coding an archive for this blog, I’d link it here… One of these days I guess.

Anyway. I disabled every email account that I’d ever publically posted, and replaced all website ones with strict scripts that filter my email and forward it to me only if it contains certain strings that the web forms insert into it. I don’t recieve any spam now, because the only address I have isn’t shared among any companies.

Now, I’m trying it with phone! Whenever a company needs my phone #, I’ve always given them my parents phone number – they’re more likely to answer. So my cell phone is rather private. Now, I’ve just given up my work phone too!!

See, everytime somebody makes a sale they play this stupid rap song over the intercom. The other day it was played 7 times in 20 minutes. Great for the company but annoying for the company’s programmer.

So, no more work phone! If I need to use a call, I use a random phone around the office. If people need to get a hold of me, I give them my MSN. IT’s working great and without phone or email I’m getting so much more done now!
