Shouldn't be problem Dave! All interface parts are readily available at your local Radio Shack or you could have Black Box custom build the interface! You will however need to purchase the newest version of Nuance's "Naturally Speaking", client seats as required, and a PC certified by Nuance. To help our economy, your client needs to hire at least two additional personnel. One to operate the transcription unit and one to operate the shaving unit, cross-trained, of course. Use Manpower to find these new personnel and tell them to concentrate their search in Florida and Arizona.

Hey, I had to explain what a Telex was to my apprentice class last week. That led to discussions of TTY and Dumb Terminals.

Then I found out that many of them had no idea what Busy Tone was.

Old. I feel old......

I just got an email from the summer internship I did last year:
"We would like to send you something in the mail. Mail? What's mail?"

Of course the punchline is "no, use your fingers like everybody else!"

I believe a Squareknot would be appropriate, or possibly a hangman's noose with the standard 13 turns.


When I was young, I was Liberal. As I aged and wised up, I became Conservative. Now that I'm old, I have settled on Curmudgeon.

We where working this past weekend at a customer site and when they wanted us to track down what POTS line was feeding their elevator we had to go up on a floor that they said nobody had occupied in 40 or 50 years.
It was like 40 or 50 years ago they left that floor and nobody had been back since. There where all kinds of antiques laying around.
I wish I had taken some pics of the elevator, it was the kind that had the ole sliding diamond shaped wire mesh has the door.

I love jobs like this when you can walk back into history.

I had one like that about 15 years ago, Mike. It was in one of the buildings in the Virginia State Capitol Complex. The agency for which we were installing a system only occupied the ground floor, yet there were three other floors that hadn't been occupied in decades. We couldn't resist the temptation and went up there via the stairs (the elevator was way too creepy). What an amazing bunch of items that hadn't been touched in my own lifetime!

This building dates back to Colonial times, so it is very, very old. Even the old stuff in there wasn't as old as the building itself.

Even creepier was when we decided to go down into the basement level. It had been an active tax department office in the early 1970's, so the decor was somewhat 'modern' in comparison to the rest of the building. There were notes tacked on the walls, pens/pencils still on desks, mechanical calculators, even a 1971 calendar on the wall in one office. It was like stepping back in time, since this space hadn't been used for anything since it had been vacated in 1972.

What was most amazing was that the interrupters in the 1A2 equipment were still running away. Amazing, simply amazing.
