I am off, done, finished, NOT DOING MUCH OF ANYTHING for the next week and a half. TSP is officially shut down until Wednesday, January 1st, 2014.
What does this mean?
It means I am not working, I not spending time doing much of anything at all related to business or work. It means if you email me a long question, a proposal or much of anything at all during this shutdown you are likely wasting your time. A week long shut down will create a huge back log of such things so MOST of it will just be deleted. If you want to communicate with me on a meaningful level for anything other than an emergency, it will keep until January.
What it does not mean?
It doesn’t mean that actual customer service will be ignored. Once a day when I am deleting a ton of email from people that think I don’t actually mean I am shut down I will also scan for any actual customer service. Like I can’t log in to the MSB or something like that. Or I need to cancel my renewal or I need the Safecastle Discount code or the Service Discount.
That type of thing can be done in a few minutes a day. So I will provide that type of service during the shut down. Everything else, well it will mostly be like it never happened.
We all need time off and this year I really need it. I now belong to my wife, the rest of my family and my close personal friends. I will see you in 2014 and wish you the very best Christmas and New Years possible.
