There have been a few people coming to Artifacting.com looking for the ringtones of the little whistling sound that is made when you go through the turnstile at Disneyland so I thought I would post free downloads of it for anyone that wanted them as ringtones for their phone or alerts for their computer. I have also posted the sound that you here when they scan your ticket while entering Disneyland. Enjoy.
Yesterday the IT person here at work deleted the entire list of my personal contacts from my computer. They weren’t on the network so they were irretrievable. Gone for good. Dooced. Six years of collected phone numbers and addresses: distant family, old girlfriends, close friends who have moved away, christmas card crap, long forgotten email addresses, everything. No more. Funny thing is, I’m really not too pissed about it. Something inside me says I should be mad, but I’m not. I guess I feel like if it was someone I haven’t talked to in years, well then, it’s probably not that important to talk to them again. Or is it? Some of the more essential info, important people, I have in other places. And somehow, for reasons that don’t have a logic behind them, I feel like I’m getting a little bit of a clean slate. Just a little. Maybe it’s just one broad swipe with a big, spongy, eraser on this messy chalkboard of mine. But in some way it actually feels good. To some extent it’s relieving, Somewhere a load has been lifted.
1. Do you like talking on the phone? Why or why not?
I don’t mind talking on the phone. Most of my phone conversations are pretty to the point. I’d much rather talk in person, body language and non-verbal cues play a large part in conversations.
2. Who is the last person you talked to on the phone?
3. About how many telephones do you have at home?
The only phone I have is my cell phone. Ask nicely and I might give you the number.
4. Have you encountered anyone who has really bad phone manners? What happened?
Not really. I’ve hung up on people in anger and had the same done to me but that is about the extent of it.
5. Would you rather pick up the phone and call someone or write them an e-mail or a letter? Why or why not?
It depends on how quickly I need to communicate, what information I’m communicating, and how important that information is.
