Are there millions of people paging other people? (On their cellphones that have caller ID and TELL YOU THAT YOU HAVE MISSED CALLS.) And how many people press 1 for more options? Would you say there are more, or less, that press '1', than press the secret key (usually '#') to skip the operator messages?
The messages, while not swindling, are an annoyance to anybody that has operated a phone in the last 20 years.
I say get rid of them. For my sanity, at least.
Obviously, it's not going to sound wonderful, anymore, but it's a fun experiment in lossy compression in the audio domain. (Albeit a wholly inefficient and crappy one, but fun!)
Anyone else know what I'm talking about?
I could be wrong.
"We are only requesting the original source code for the graphics engine to these games, not anything more."
Don't you want the audio engine, utility code, and logic, too?
Wake me when we have a legitimate source.
But the real kicker is: not much more than a year ago, the county purchased the infrastructure from none other than TimeWarner Cable. TWC didn't think it was such a bad idea for government to run an ISP when they pulled out of my region not more than 14 months ago...
