Covered by people already: It's my use for formal conversation to keep a paper trail. I use my gmail for that, my aol for all my crap registering stuff, and my school account was for school contacts but now that I am done, that'll be done away with.


A reflection is just a distorted reality held by glass and your mind.

I use a landline whenever I'm at my computer, as its in the one place in my house when I drop calls, or if I plan to talk for more than a few minutes and its not a free calling time.

 

As for email, I only use it for registration, shopping, newsletters and the occasional emailing a file to myself.

I use it because I have to. :( If I could do all communications with clients through Twitter, I would- It strips away all the formalities (Which I forget all to often) and leaves the essence of the message, making it so much faster and (more importantly) easier to write.

I use email all the time - most people I talk to (formal things, that is) only use email.

No. First of all, because everyone has my @live.com address and Windows Live is the slowest thing ever. They won't let you automatically forward everything to another e-mail, either. I just use facebook for all actual communication, and I only use e-mail when I have no other option.

Camera guy: still laughing

Matt: You want the funny shit that happens here and there, you think it comes out of your [bleep]ing [wagon] pushes garbage can down, don't you? You think it's funny? It comes out of here! running towards Camera guy

Camera guy: runs away still laughing

Matt: You think the funny comes out of your mother[bleep]ing creativity? Comes out of Satan, mother[bleep]er! nn--ngh! pushes Camera guy down

I once met a man named Jesus at a Home Depot. Is this the Messiah returned at last?

 

And i once beat someone named Jesus in a chess game. Does that mean I'm smarter than the messiah?

I receive a lot of emails, mainly just from websites or notifications on forums, but I very rarely SEND emails.

 

Also I always use a landline if possible, I'm not on some BS expensive contract phone, I don't have free calls.

For conversation, I don't use email unless it's formal, as others have said. The last people I emailed were 1)a teacher, in order to get pictures for the yearbook, and 2)an aunt, in order to get addresses of relatives. Otherwise, I do receive newsletters, school things, and most recently my e-tickets for my next vacation, but I use Facebook and texting for as much as I can. I used to keep email to correspond with my online friends, but I've lost them.

As a general form of communication? No, I despise it. Too slow. If I have to for college, business correspondence, etc I will...I'll be kicking and screaming the whole way, but I'll use it. I'd rather speak on the phone/use AIM/use Skype or write a letter if it needs to be recorded.

Pshh. With the new Facebook messaging system, I get all my communications in one with fb messages and my @facebook.com email address being sent to my phone by text message, etc...

 

 

No, but seriously though, I don't do all that. Thought that is all possible. I do have a facebook email address, and I could request them to send me my messages via text message. And I could use my fb email for my email needs and more.

But I really just use my email accounts for school communications and family. With friends, I generally just use facebook, as it has a cleaner, more direct interface.

Isn't @live.com the same as @hotmail.com? If so then I have forwarded all my hotmail messages to my gMail account.


My relaxation method involves a bottle of lotion, beautiful women, and partial nudity. Yes I get massages.

Really? Last time I checked I couldn't.
