Email Tip of the Day
The thing about e-mail is that it makes uncommunicative people painfully apparent, much to the chagrin of those of us in technological fields who think that 24 hours is an awfully long time to wait for a reply. If you receive an e-mail that requires some work of you, reply right away and give your co-worker/client a clue as to when you'll get to their request. Even if you reply to say they'll have to wait, that's better than letting them stew about how irresponsible you are for not getting in touch with them. Ignore people and they get grumpy. Go figure.
