I would like to talk to you, but …

The most precious commodity I have is time.

Much as I would like to personally chat with each and every one of my clients, it is nearly impossible to consider doing that without hiring people, just so I can talk.  That has never made good sense to me.

Nearly all my working (probably could have said “waking” ) hours are consumed by designing and creating applications that are the core of the Link37 business.

Even more of a problem ... five minutes on the phone really means whatever I was deeply engrossed in, has been disrupted.  The five minute conversation may take me another 20 or 30 minutes to get “back into” what I was thinking about and working on.

So ... much as I would like to chat, it is not really possible most of the time when I am working.  The very best communication is by email.

Email, properly configured and used is the digital filing system of the new age.  No more notes in file folders; all incoming email is identified and labeled and can be easily searched by topic, sender, even small detail in the contents of a message can be quickly located.


Mostly I use Google products running on Microsoft operating systems.  Having a solid platform is essential to good time management and over the years I have developed a very workable system ...                   check it out -->

What is great about Email

My master filing and log system!

I keep all client emails ... Forever.

The back-and-forth is kept in threads.

Action/response is accurately dated.

New topic, new thread ...

Easy to retrieve in years later, if needed.

Ambiguity is seldom an issue.

If you must call, the number for my office is 434-218-0261

Most of the time you will be sent to my voice mail, since I can’t program properly with telephone interruptions.


But … leave a message, because the voice mail is attached to an email and immediately is sent to my online, working mailbox.  I will see a small pop-up and an emailed copy of the voice mail will be attached.


Next programing break I will answer.
