I have the attention span of a housefly. I had heard and already forgotten about two of them.
But I was assured that DRAM stays readable for minutes after they're removed from the machine?
Not if adjacent rows are being heavily, cyclicly read.
At work, my extension is tied into my email. When someone leaves me a message, it's sent as a wav file to my email, and I can listen to it from my mobile device.
Where I work (Google), telephone calls are all but dead and voicemail is completely dead. Pretty much everyone lists their personal mobile number as their phone number in the directory (or a Google Voice number that forwards to their mobile), because getting business calls at home or whatever is a non-issue because no one makes phone calls for business. Communication is via e-mail (for formal communications, messages that don't seek quick response, or group distribution), instant message (for short, timely discussions) or face to face/video conference (Google Hangout). Some groups, especially SREs (Site Reliability Engineers -- sysadmins, more or less), also use IRC, mostly because it stays up when other stuff breaks.
Further, the etiquette is that nearly all non-email communication starts with an instant message. This is true even if the other party is sitting right next to you, unless you can tell by looking that they aren't deeply focused on something. There are only two times a phone is used, one rare, the other extraordinarily rare, and in neither case would voicemail even be useful.
The rare case is for a (generally informal) meeting when one party for some reason doesn't have access to Hangouts. The extraordinarily rare case is when something is on fire and someone's attention is needed at 2 AM Sunday morning. The latter has never happened to me, though I have called a couple of colleagues. Even then, a phone call is an unusual step; normally you wake people up via the pager system (whose messages are delivered via various means, sometimes including automated phone calls) and proceed to communicate via IM or VC.
It's not just Google, either. Prior to Google I worked at IBM which where communication similarly revolved primarily around IM and e-mail, though meetings were primarily via teleconference, not video conference.
From what I can see, voice is generally declining, and voicemail is leading the charge.
(I know, but whenever I see 'black and white' in a ST context, I reflexively go to Frank Gorshin.)
Historically, that is correct, but the term is still in use, and its meaning has shifted. To whit (sp?):
"B movie noun
: a movie that costs little money to make and that is usually not considered to be very good"
He's probably one of those stupid hackers that will be so scared about dropping the soap that he refuses to take the shower.
C'mon, it's just as likely that he's too fat to bend down that far if he drops the soap.
Maybe call the timelines with names appropriate for them, or at least non-racist terms. I'd hate for them to settle on something as stupid as "Star Trek White" and "Star Trek Black".
Wait, are you asking for a grim and gritty reboot of "Let That Be Your Last Battlefield"?
Wesley Crusher was the best character ever seen on television.
I thought you usually used your "CleverNickName" account?
Then your sister in law says, hey, I've got this stray dog I can't keep because of my MS. But I love it and I want her to go to a good home. So then you get a dog, too, because you like your sister in law and don't mind dogs.
So, there you are, two cats and a dog later. And they're good friends and good pets, and no internet crank is going to make you see the error of your ways, because the pets are furry and happy to see you.
What was I saying? Oh, yeah, Merry Christmas!
Who are the others this time around?
And how is Keith Richards still alive again? Pre-embalming?
As I remember, the "happy ending" in Manna was only available to those whose ancestors had the foresight to invest in the libertarian Australia Project.....
That was my thought. I want to know the location of his sea steading city so that if I'm forced to be a pirate, I know where to raid for supplies.
