Contact Info - Email
For business inquiries: firstname.lastname@example.org
For anything: email@example.com or send me a message via Launchpad. Launchpad messages go to that email address, but messages through Launchpad may be a better way to get my attention if I'm not anticipating your message and we haven't talked before.
Contact Info - Chat
The Stack Exchange site I'm most active on (by far) is Ask Ubuntu, followed by Unix & Linux. I don't use SE's chat system as often as I used to, but if I chat anywhere on SE then I'll probably drop into the Ask Ubuntu General Room too. If you have enough rep to chat (20 network-wide), you can ping me there. If I've been there in the last three days then I'll be notified, though I may not see or reply immediately. To do this, include @EliahKagan in your message. Or feel free to invite me to another room.
I use some of the popular general-purpose chat systems:
- Google Talk (XMPP): firstname.lastname@example.org
Sir Griswold of MacElwain#7549(Feel free to add me as a friend even if we've never interacted. I'll probably accept the request. Then Discord will let you send me DMs even if we're not in any of the same servers.)
- Steam: EkWingburn / Sir Griswold of MacElwain
- Skype: eliah.kagan / Eliah Kagan
Feel free to IM me on any of those, but if you do and I don't reply, please don't assume I received your message.
"Canned comments" for use with the pro-format user script
I haven't maintained these in a few years. Some of them may not reflect changes that have been made to Stack Exchange's user interface or other factors (for example, we no longer think it's a good idea to bother people about their overall "accept rate," a metric the system no longer shows).
Also, I don't claim personal authorship of them. Many are derived from defaults or those shared here. Some are even identical to those.
