Absolutely!  And, techno-friends, you do know that in an Apocalyptic Zombie Emergency, a CD is a fine substitute for a cob and far better than the Sears pages which smear easily so's you can't see the pictures good next time.

We kept a mechanical rotary phone in the house for use during power outages . Pretty much get only the people that care in this situation  .

I still have a dial phone at home. I'll be damned if I will let them Charge me a buck a month more for "touch tone service"

So I ain't pressing nothing for nothing.

Only one button you push at home... Your wives button when your pissing her off...  :wallbanging:

 

DANG and you guys say I am Cheap,, not only do I have touch tone I "splurged" for caller ID,,, jeeze what a money waster I have become :rolling:

No wonder you can't afford the paved driveway..  :D

 

No, it's a Net10 phone. You can buy them at Dollar stores for 10 bucks or so. Works just fine.  I haven't done a jitterbug since 1947.

Please don't start again.. You might blow a hip  :wave:

 

Ahhh Im not into them cell phones,,,, or regular phones for that matter, need the landline for dsl or I wouldnt have that either,,,, course then again if it were just me I wouldnt have the TV either,, heck Id probably toss everything out unhook the power,,, get bad looks from the wife on all this though.

I figured you built the shop to go hide from the ball and chain????? 

 

Sounds like an episode of Breaking Amish, in reverse. :D

He does most stuff backwards from what i understand...

 

I dont think the Twp would let me have a full service outhouse in the backyard though   Come to think of it I dont think they wife would be pleased either. 

When did you start worrying about pleasing others????  :beer:

 

Pine cones!

WHfan said those pull his willknotts...  

 

I don't care for a February draft, or smoke being blown up there. 

keep your knees together ..  No more problem...  :smilewink:

I actually know this one... It would take longer that way.
you'd have to listen to them say it in at least three languages,
(Para cualquier idioma que no sea Inglés, pulse uno
Pour toute autre langue que l'anglais, appuyez sur une
Für jede andere Sprache als Englisch, drücken Sie eine)...
wait for the software to decide you arent' just "slow" and then let you go to english.

If it has any consolation - 1 has no letters , symbols, pictures, stupid caricatures, no nothing but a number . Consider that an indication that altered meanings are not needed .If all the numbers were just numbers well .. it would just be another device to use that even a little training would get you by . A phone is just a phone - the users have to deal with what 's on the other end anyways. Not trying to get modded myself but we put too much meaning into such devices.

What is reallllly annoying is that once you have chosen your language, your not done. Now you must indicate if your a professional, homeowner, medical server, enquiring about your bill, enquiring about non-delivery, wish to speak with someone who's name ends in A through G, or would like to upgrade your tech support for an additional $25 per week. And only then, do you get to listen to elevator music at a high volume until the next available foreigner answers.

Please, please, please...  you are defaming the very idea of World Villageism and Brotherly Love with this evil hate!  So count me in! :D
