Oh shit, didn't it work? Sorry! Try these instead...
So you tried to email me by clicking that link, and it didn't work?
Sorry. That genuinely distresses me. It works when I try it myself,
and plenty of other people find it works, so I have no idea why it
didn't work for you. It doesn't use any fancy tricks, so it ought to
work for everyone, but there's no accounting for Microshite...
I do sometimes worry that it doesn't work. The server logs do quite often show that
someone has looked at the front page of my site, then looked at the contact page,
and then not sent me anything. Since it's a bit pointless doing that, it makes me
think they did try to send me something but it didn't work. This worries me
intensely. So I feel that it is essential to
provide some alternatives.
Or if for some undeclared reason you simply want to leave anonymous
untraceable messages scattered round the internet where I will find
them, these links will enable you to do that as well.
Accordingly, here are some other ways to contact me. Please don't use
them if the email link does work, I'm only posting them for emergency
- You can post a message on the RatBike Zone
with a subject of "FAO Pigeon". You don't need to register or any shit
like that, anyone can post on it. You don't need to supply an email
address, and a glance at the forum index will make it obvious that if
you were to post your name as "Dept. of Quantum Teleparadigmography"
it would not be regarded as particularly unusual.
I usually look at it several times a day.
Best to include something like "Tell me more about your MZ"
so there's some bike content to keep the admin happy :-)
And I know I go on about the disadvantages of the method of chasing
down through off-topic forum threads on the previous page... so bear
that in mind! :-)
- You can post a message in The Pie and Piston
on Pistonheads, again with a subject of "FAO Pigeon". For this one you
do need to register, but it's safe, it doesn't send you loads of shit or otherwise abuse the information you give
it. Again, I usually look at it every day. But there's loads of
traffic on it, so it's not unlikely that the message would get buried
so deep I never saw it. And if I'm away from home and don't have
access to a broadband connection I generally don't look at it much.
The same applies to registering on the Chew-The-Fat forum
and sending me a private message on there. Possible, and safe for the sender, but
again, not really recommended.
- You can email me via
my profile on Pistonheads.
Same as with posting on the forum, you need to register. Emails via this route come into my normal email inbox.
- You can send me a private message via
my profile on the Barclay James Harvest forum.
Again, you need to register, but again, it's safe. When you use this method, I have to log into the forum to read the
message itself, but I also get an email telling me I've got a message. The same applies to the similar option of sending
me a message via
my profile on the Volvo Owners Club forum.
- DO NOT EVEN THINK OF TRYING to send me a message via my myspace profile.
I can't stand that site and I never log on any more so I'll never get it. (And if you're not already registered
on myspace then stay that way, because myspace is a hotbed of evil code that fucks up people's
computers. I'm safe on it because I don't use Windows, I run Debian GNU/Linux -
and even so I still get occasional browser crashes.
People who do have the misfortune to have to use Windows are constantly getting their machines screwed by
shite on myspace.
