Glacier

by Volker Weber

On June 29, I sent an email to two IBM press persons, one of them I have known for many years. I received an answer from her within two hours. The other person replied 5 minutes ago. 5 months, 5 days, and 25 minutes - that is a record.

I am scheduling a reply for May 9th. ;-)

They were waiting for the budget to send you the reply email to be approved :-)

You should reply in the year 2525 ;-)
Or at least sometime with lots of 5's & 25's ;-)

You are a lucky guy, because you received an answer. Sometimes your message got deleted without being read after a few months ;-)

I think this was an "low priority" mail so the server sends all "low priority" mail every 6 months ;-)

Perhaps their replication schedule was set to every 6 months?

Glacier speeds:
Mean speeds vary; some have speeds so slow that trees can establish themselves among the deposited scourings. In other cases they can move as fast as many meters per day, as is the case of Byrd Glacier, an outlet glacier in Antarctica which moves 750-800 meters per year (some 2 meters or 6 ft per day), according to studies using satellites.

Hey, maybe you are not that important after all ? common, not to take the guy's defense, but who has never had an email fall tru to the cracks ? At least u did get an answer ;-) ,

Gayle always says to me "Your communication is the response you get" :-)
