I’m putting this up now, before I forget the necessity. If you call me for a phone meeting in August 2013, this is what I will link you to.
I’m writing this a year ahead of your request, so it’s not personal, but no. No phone meetings in August. Whatever you want to say, we can discuss by email. No phone meetings in August. I don’t like phone meetings most of the year, but in August they will necessarily compete with too many other claims on my time and attention, because my kids are out of school. No phone meetings in August. NO PHONE MEETINGS IN AUGUST. I might try to be nice and fit you in, but it will be a bad idea for both of us. Your questions can wait until September. You’ve been warned. No phone meetings in August.
