So, how do we get in touch with you?

You can send me email, but only using this contact form unless you know my address, which I have not placed on here in an attempt to foil spammers. If you do know my address, I welcome encrypted mail – my key is on the public key server network.

Other than that, I am often on IRC, usually as EmleyMoor on IRCnet, EFnet, Freenode, OFTC and Coldfront IRC networks.

As instant messenger services go, I use the following:


It should be noted, though, that I may withdraw from some of these services if they effectively merge.


I am on Facebook – though I'd rather I didn't get out of the blue requests, so please make sure you are known to me first – contact me in another way if you can't find me. I am also on Twitter – emley73, but please make sure I can tell who you are or I may not accept you as a follower.


If you are contacting me in any of these ways, please do not be tempted to send junk – whether advertising (spam), messages in languages I have no way of handling or just random strings of characters intended to annoy. I am not happy to receive junk.


As far as instant messenger details go, this page will be kept up to date.
