How to contact me (or not)

My phone is a bit broken, and even when it's having a good day I'm often without a data connection and dependent on wifi to be online. This affects the mechanism by which it is easiest to reach me. You may also look at where I am to infer the options. Good luck.

Signal

Signal is an encrypted direct messaging app for mobile and desktop. It's like WhatsApp, but not owned by Facebook, and works when my phone is dead. This is generally the most reliable way to reach me. You need a mobile number of mine to contact me; if you don't have [the right] one, and you would like to send me a Signal message, send me an encrypted email to ask for my number.

  • push notifications: yes
  • desktop: yes
  • phone: yes
  • will I eventually reply even if I don't see it straight away: yes.

IRC

I'm rhiaro on IRC and sit on Freenode, irc.imaginarynet.org.uk, and irc.w3.org. I usually have a client open, definitely during the work day. This is a pretty reliable way to reach me.

  • push notifications: no
  • desktop: yes
  • phone: yes
  • will I eventually reply even if I don't see it straight away: yes.

Email

My email address is amy@rhiaro.co.uk and here is my PGP key. This is a good way to reach me if you don't need a fast response (you might get one, but don't count on it). My emails are poorly filtered and organised, and my spam filter is overly aggressive. If I don't reply within a week and it's important, email me again or ping me some other way.

  • push notifications: no
  • desktop: yes
  • phone: no
  • will I eventually reply even if I don't see it straight away: probably not.

Mastodon

I check my account at @rhiaro@toot.cat every couple of days at least. You can send me public or private messages there. If I have the tab open, I'll get a push notification. I do not have a mobile app.

  • push notifications: sometimes
  • desktop: yes
  • phone: maybe
  • will I eventually reply even if I don't see it straight away: very likely

Twitter

I am @rhiaro on Twitter and I check it at least every couple of days. Sometimes Twitter suspends my account for no reason though. Consider getting a Mastodon account on a server you trust. I do not have a mobile app.

  • push notifications: no
  • desktop: yes
  • phone: maybe
  • will I eventually reply even if I don't see it straight away: very likely

WhatsApp

I still have WhatsApp installed because its frustratingly more popular than Signal. If you talk to me regularly on WhatsApp, please consider switching to Signal. WhatsApp deskop does not work if my phone is dead or disconnected, as it often is. One day, I will no longer have a phone, and then what are you going to do?

  • push notifications: yes
  • desktop: if phone is connected
  • phone: yes
  • will I eventually reply even if I don't see it straight away: probably.

Slack and Gitter

In the past you may have interacted with me on Slack or Gitter. Don't expect to do so any more. They both crash my browser and I hate them.

SMS

If you have a phone number of mine, you could send me an SMS. I will almost certainly never see it though, and I definitely won't reply. My SIM cards are usually not in my phone, or switched off. I do not pay for a phone contract or texts.

  • push notifications: no
  • desktop: no
  • phone: unlikely
  • will I eventually reply even if I don't see it straight away: no.

Phone call

If you have a phone number of mine, you could call me. You probably won't get through. My SIM cards are likely not in my phone, or switched off. If my phone does ring, I probably won't answer it. Do not leave a voicemail, I will never ever listen to it.

  • push notifications: technically yes I guess
  • desktop: no
  • phone: yes
  • will I eventually reply even if I don't answer: no.

Snail mail

I do not have a fixed address. You cannot send me phyiscal things.

In person

I'm pretty public about what events or cities I'm going to be in and when. If we might overlap IRL, we can probably hang out, depending on who you are. Send me a message using one of the above ways to find out.
