In that case, I should contemplate setting up my computer to constantly log in and out.

It'd be a DoS Attack . . . Denial of Sleep Attack. ;)

. . . and then I get banned.

Not a good tradeoff. :-\

Sleep tight.

new feature.
The "off" button is a new feature? ??? ;)

I've always wondered why all phone makers (both cell and land line) don't incorporate a DND feature into phones.

. . An automatic "Do not disturb" for the hours you have preset . . .. with an except [this number] [this number][this number] exempt feature.

Anyone call from a number not on the exempt list would go directly to the answering machine . . or, a message would first play without ringing the phone . . . "The person you are trying to contact does not wish to be disturbed. If this is an emergency, in order to ring the phone, please dial the first name of the person you are trying to contact."
That would prevent middle-of-the-night wrong numbers.

Of course emergency workers and reverse 911 should automatically be exempt.

no. don't turn my phone off ever. for the same reason you don't disconnect your land line.

because if there's an emergency and someone needs me RFN, well... not much good a phone does you if it's off the hook...

it's just for notifications.

Same deal here... If my phone is off, it's because the battery is dead

I've turned my phones off for months at a time. I've left my email with hundreds of unreplied messages as well. Sometimes I just don't give a ****.

This is the first time I've been without a landline. I love it. Who the hell needs a landline? Besides, not having a landline also means my address will not be listed in any public directories. ;D

I got rid of my land line back around 1992-1993 after I got the puppy on the far left . . . (great phone by the way)



It took a while for people to understand that I was in better communication by not having a home phone line.

The owner of the real estate company I was working for at the time as a Relocation Account Manager told me to take my car in so I could have a "car phone" installed and be able to contact the corporate clients from the houses "out in the field" and not have to wait to get back to the office. She couldn't understand why I wouldn't want a free car phone for work, and only have to pay for personal, non-work minutes. I asked her, "why would I want a "mobile phone" bolted down to my car?" She still didn't understand and insisted . . . but I got the AT&T rep to come to the office to display these cute "little" new (not a brick, but still heavy) "cell phones." The owner got each of us one on the spot, and had her car phone yanked the next day. :D

The land line went back in later that year when I needed a line for the modem and home computer so I could do work at home and upload and download information to corporate clients via FTP on "Compuserve" :D.
A few months later I found out there was this thing called the world wide web that I could do other things on with that computer and modem.

That 'new' land line saved me cell phone minutes back when they were quite expensive. I could then chat longer too.

Not having a "home phone" for a year or so confused a lot of people. One friend was actually hesitant to set me up on a blind date because, as she explained it to the date, "He works, but doesn't have a home phone." :D :D

sure it is. just not the PHONE directory.
Are you sure about that? In Canada it's a bit different. Address directories are typically tied to landlines here. Without a home phone number, it's more difficult for joe schmoe to find out where you live.
