Just logged onto At&T Wireless to activate my celphone's free voicemail. I'll probably disable it again after the conference because, quite frankly, I'm happier without it. (And if any of you leave me "I was just saying hi, so no need to call me back" messages, I will beat you to death with a rolled up newpaper)

I have to say, I like the fact that "incoming calls only" is an option I can select from the website. If I ever lose my phone again, that's the first thing I'll reach for.

But more than that, I like the fact that "outgoing calls only" can be selected right alongside it. Check 'em both, and your phone either does or does not allow incoming and outgoing calls. I think it's a glass-half-full/glass-half-empty situation, and we can see if AT&T is generally positive or negative by their response to this test.

Bouncing Celphones (like Dueling Banjos, only not)
Mine actually clatters across the floor. It used to bounce, before I got a considerably-heavier battery.

Re: my title up there...
If my phone let me program ringtones, I would drop everything this moment and devote my life to making duet ringtones to be activated on two seperate phones in tandem. Dualing Banjos, Heart and Souls, Chopsticks... Synchronizing that would be hell, but the (admittedly pointless) effort would be worth it.

one step at a time
I was thinking more along the lines of a fully-scored Nutcracker Suite or 1812 Overture. But you have to start small. If you can get four people to start "Row Row Row Your Boat" or "Frere Jacques" at the right time, you're off to a good start.

From there, you punch in some of Bartok's etudes, then move from Bach's two-part inventions through a fugue or two. When you've got 16 people playing Pachelbel's Canon on their celphones, it's time to hit the talk-show circuit!

barber set quat peoples?

No, it wouldn't.

I've seen barbershop quartets where they actually sing, and been bored out of my skull by them. Picture one where, instead of singing, they just hold up their celphones and stand there silently. I mean, imagine a band who just holds their instruments still while a CD plays, not interacting, not even bothering to pretend. Or a manaquin display from your favorite clothing store, but with music.

It would neither be interesting nor a show.
