You just have to wait for the cascade updates to be rolled out to all of the switches. The switches in the cell towers all have to know which ESN to route calls to your phone number to. It's not altogether dissimilar to updating a DNS record, except without the reliability of the Internet.

For the parties, make black-bean salsa and take a bag of crackers.

Don't give me all that logic stuff by Bob Abooey (2.00 / 0) #3 Tue Jun 06, 2006 at 07:13:22 AM EST
I just want the phone to work. Is that too much to ask? Maybe I should start calling their customer service people every fifteen minutes. That'll light a fire under their arses.

Black bean salsa??? Good lord man, there's gonna be girls there, you can't eat something like that in mixed company.

Warmest regards,

dried pineapple chunks then by georgeha (4.00 / 3) #4 Tue Jun 06, 2006 at 07:16:37 AM EST
the girls will really appreciate that, if they work like the pineapple juice (supposedly) does.

if the pineapple is dried by StackyMcRacky (4.00 / 1) #10 Tue Jun 06, 2006 at 08:06:41 AM EST
then it has no juice!

But is it the water? by georgeha (4.00 / 1) #12 Tue Jun 06, 2006 at 08:09:10 AM EST
or all the fructose/sucrose, or something else that makes pineapple juice work?

it's the pineappley goodness by StackyMcRacky (4.00 / 2) #14 Tue Jun 06, 2006 at 08:20:13 AM EST
if it were just sugar, then donuts would do the same thing.

then dried should work fine by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #15 Tue Jun 06, 2006 at 08:23:03 AM EST
Bob and the girls chicks can thank me later.

WIPO: Iridium by georgeha (4.00 / 2) #2 Tue Jun 06, 2006 at 07:09:54 AM EST
when you can never be out of a cell.

So, like, what sort of ringtone have you picked out, and are you going with different ones for all your frieds? I think the Black Eyed Peas are very appropriate for your sort of phone.


All the ring-tones it came with suck by Bob Abooey (2.00 / 0) #5 Tue Jun 06, 2006 at 07:17:27 AM EST
I put it on the vintage one that sounds like an old analog phone. (Ring ring ring etc.) Actually I kinda like that one anyways, vintage is the new cool after all.

I'm not sure I want to drop $2.50 to get a cool one so I'll probably just leave it like this.

Warmest regards,

It's okay by Bob Abooey (4.00 / 2) #8 Tue Jun 06, 2006 at 07:29:16 AM EST
I trust everyone here.

Just so nobody tries to do any advanced hacking stuff on my phone and gets me in trouble with Homestead Security. Course I registered the phone under the name of Elroy Windham III so they'll have a hard time tracking me down.

Side-effects of soy milk by wiredog (4.00 / 4) #7 Tue Jun 06, 2006 at 07:23:18 AM EST
include dry throat, clogged ears, man-boobs, and shrunken testes. But those are all later, delayed, symptoms. The early symptoms include a strong desire to buy hemp products. Oh, and thinking you don't need a shower. If you show any of those early symptoms, stop drinking soy immediately. Before your balls shrink to the size of raisinetts. Or, you can counteract the effect by eating a manly food such as hummos.

But no whey. The cross-reaction between whey and soy is a terrible thing to behold. Among other things, it can cause you to buy French Made Automobiles.

Otherwise I'm thinking you're just making all that up in a sly effort to trick me.

No sir, you have to get up pretttty early in the morning if you want to pull some hi-jinx on this cat.

Bob, are you accusing /me/ of trollerizing? by wiredog (2.00 / 0) #21 Tue Jun 06, 2006 at 09:41:02 AM EST
Me? Bob, you know I would never, ever even attempt to trollerize someone who is an acknowledged master of The Art of the Troll.

Chicken by Breaker (4.00 / 4) #9 Tue Jun 06, 2006 at 07:42:13 AM EST
I prefer mine plucked before cooking, but hey if a Lunctime Legend like Bob fancies his shaved, then who am I to disagree?


HDL or LDL? by Bob Abooey (2.00 / 0) #20 Tue Jun 06, 2006 at 08:37:09 AM EST
My HDL was half what it's supposed to be, which was more concerning to me than my high LDL number.

Actually I'm kind of excited to see what effect changing my diet has on the numbers. It's almost like I'm a human experiment.

Warmest regards,
--Your best pal Bob

What's this got to do with by Breaker (2.00 / 0) #25 Tue Jun 06, 2006 at 11:48:31 PM EST
The preparation of chicken?  Obviously, we can't all be at the edge of the lunch technology curve and I am confused.

You must have missed the special series I ran back in Feb. You'll need to go back and read all the diaries from that month, then it'll all make perfect sense.

it isn't allergies by StackyMcRacky (4.00 / 3) #11 Tue Jun 06, 2006 at 08:08:20 AM EST
Bob, sounds like your cholesterol is so high, your ears are getting clogged.

No ma'am by Bob Abooey (4.00 / 2) #17 Tue Jun 06, 2006 at 08:28:14 AM EST
I'm betting my cholesterol is going to be so low when I get tested next week they'll want to give me cholesterol shots inter-venously in order to bring me up to spec.

Warmest regards,
--Your best pal Bob

they don't do that by StackyMcRacky (4.00 / 1) #19 Tue Jun 06, 2006 at 08:34:21 AM EST
see, i have low cholesterol.  in fact, mine is on the "dangerously low" border.  I'm supposed to be taking fish oil or some such to up it, but I don't because I'm lazy.

Hey Bob, by sasquatchan (4.00 / 2) #13 Tue Jun 06, 2006 at 08:12:29 AM EST
I think your phone number went to Wagner consulting. I got an odd recorded message reminding me to set my clocks right this weekend.

Oh no.. it's mine alright by Bob Abooey (4.00 / 2) #16 Tue Jun 06, 2006 at 08:25:37 AM EST
I think they might put some recorded message there since the phone isn't online yet. That's what I get for going with some cut-rate girly girl outfit.

Warmest regards,
--Your best pal Bob

The Elbonian call centre frippet got my SIM enabled while I was still talking to her on my bakelite wallset.  You probably made the mistake of going with an outfit who employ people who're one notch above the starvation line.  That just gets you sloppy customer service.
