The Famed "T" Letter

I sent my first "T" letter out on Friday as I begin my job search again (my current company has failed to secure more contracts). I really like how it addresses the requirements versus my qualifications, and definitely see how it generates more interviews.

This may be a little too specific but, I really hesitated to send the letters out on Friday afternoon before the long (US) Memorial Day weekend.

When you are submitting applications/resumes/T letters, do you consider the time of day and day of the week which you submit it?

Also, I have been referring to the "T" Letters as a "Letter of Application" (such as the filename). Is there better nomenclature?

My thought process is that when an individual returns from a long weekend, there email may be abundant, so they may dismiss your email quickly. This is similar to the traffic on TechWR-L...there is much more traffic on Thur/Fri than there is early in the week. It seems people have more time to deal with information that is outside of their normal scope later in the week. I think it is more less of a drive to deal with real work later in the week but...

All input appreciated.
