By Ralph Hipp I would say more than 90% of our guests on the daily 4:00 Topeka talk show are booked by e-mails.. we are in almost constant contact in the few days before they come to visit us. So when my e-mails crashed on Tuesday, I wasn't sure if I could write to them.. if they could talk to me.. or if we would just have to go on a 'wing and prayer.' One guest, a Washburn professor, told me she got the instructions from me by e-mail at 5:30.. almost three hours after I sent her a message.. and one full hour after she had already been on!
So say it isn't so.. are e-mails slower than snails?
I have actually called people up on the telephone, or on my station cell phone this week to take a few minutes talking over a news story or their community event. Should I stick with my plan?
Write my blog to let me know if you're having the same problem. Or heck, just call me sometime. Ralph
