How to Contact the NetHack Fourk Maintainer
How to contact jonadab:
- Via IRC:
IRC is usually the fastest way to reach me, especially if you are looking for a quick response.
- NetHack Fourk shares an IRC channel with NetHack4 and FIQHack,
#nethack4 on the freenode
I monitor this channel pretty much continuously, so I will very likely see
anything you say in this channel; including the word Fourk makes me even
more likely to notice it quickly. (I don't always read the complete
transcripts of every channel I'm in, but I generally do read this
- My main connection to IRC normally uses the nick
if you are looking for an immediate response, you can nickping me (that is,
mention my nick in connection with whatever you are saying; my client will
take special note of this and hilight it for me). This should work in any
channel that I'm in. You can also send me a private message,
/msg jonadab Your Message Here.
- My client normally stays connected even when I am not personally sitting
in front of a computer. The IRC command
/whois jonadab jonadab
(repeating the nick gives more information) will include an
statistic that will tell you how long it has been since the last time
I said anything. If I am afk
for an extended period of time, there will usually also be an
line in my whois information, which will typically say
meaning that although my IRC client is connected to IRC, I don't have a
visible window on my computer looking at it. This is normal and happens
for instance when I sleep. You can still nickping me, and my client will
show me the messages when I come back.
- If for some reason my main connection is broken (e.g., because a power
outage turned off my computer), I also have an alternate connection, which
normally uses the nick
eady (my surname).
If eady is present, you can nickping me there, and I should get it
eventually (when my connection is restored).
- By email.
If you contact me by email, please use a clear subject line that includes the word
(if the message pertains to NetHack Fourk in any way),
so that my filters can flag and sort it appropriately. (This will cause me to actually see it,
in most cases; whereas, if it lands in my unfiltered inbox, it'll be buried under piles and
piles of rubbish and might not get noticed for many years.)
- By telephone. I can be a little hard to reach this way, but sure.
419-468-1708, ask for Nathan. I'm typically here in the mornings every
weekday except Thursday and most but not all Saturdays. I'm usually
not here in the afternoons (but may still be reachable via IRC, see above).
(This is an American phone number,
so there is no country code as such.)
