What's the shortest distance you've sent an email?


#1

I was just standing behind my colleague and looking at his screen, and he asked me to email something, which I did, and I can’t have been more than 20cm away from him.

Can anyone beat this?


#2

Epimer smells


#3

Not sure why your boss needs to know that but ok.


#4

yeah all the time sitting next to someone at work

usually the easiest way to transfer a document


#5

to my self?

“Remember to book a haircut Dave!”


#6

seriously transferring that document.


#7

But it didn’t go to you, did it? It went to a server and then got received on one or more devices. Conceivably it travelled a very great distance!


#8

you have no way of knowing that Theo


#9

theo when you step into the star trek transporter do you die? is the version that appears on the surface of the planet really you?


#10

The server’s actually in the room across


#11

obviously i’ve sent myself an email, so 0cm


#12

I didn’t consider that loophole. This thread is void.


#13

it’s only 0cm if you read it on the same device

have sent an email from my phone to my computer before. must be about 7cm


#14

of course I have!


#15

It still has to travel out to the server and back.


#16

This examines that question in detail


#17

I email someone sitting a few years from me numerous times every day. So that there is a written record of what’s been said.
