A tool to help "Get Me Out of Here"
« on: September 02, 2008, 09:32:57 AM »
Have you ever had to go to what you knew would be interminable meeting and found yourself wishing your phone would ring so you'd have an excuse to leave?

Well, why leave it to chance? 8)

Getmooh is an automated call back service. It is designed to help you escape a variety of situations by calling you automatically on your phone at a pre-specified time and playing you a recording which will either instruct you on what to say to elude your tormentor(s), or which will simply give a convincing sense of you being on an important call.

http://www.getmooh.com/index.asp

Notes

1. Caller ID Policy: Getmooh run a very simple Caller ID policy. At the end of every call, the mobile number of the person who placed the called is read out very distinctly by a computer generated voice.

2. Availability of minutes: Getmooh can only make a certain number of calls a day. As people add calls, the minutes available get used up. Select the closest time to when you want a call. If the time you need is completely booked out we apologise...we are working to increase the number of calls we can make all the time.

3. Number of Calls: You can only use the service for a maximum of two calls a day! If you need more than that you should consult a health professional.

4. Prank or Crank Calling: If you are going to set a call for a friend be sure that if they call us and identify themselves as the owner of the number we can happily verify who gave them the call.

5. Why is Getmooh free?: Because Google exists.

So, that explains the cacophony and mass exit from the meeting that I called this morning!
I could do nothing but sit there Poe faced.

Oh, from out the sounding cells,
What a gush of euphony voluminously wells!
How it swells!
How it dwells
On the Future! how it tells
Of the rapture that impels
To the swinging and the ringing
Of the bells, bells, bells,
Of the bells, bells, bells,bells,
Bells, bells, bells...

Ego inflecto ut poeta pro mihi. ;D

Always have an exit plan.

My default exit plan is based on something I learned back when I was in a rock band playing Irish bars in Boston: Keep your mouth shut - and always stand by a door.

Under Parliamentary Rules, the Motion to Adjourn is undebatable; requires no second; and takes precedence over every other motion on the floor.

A Motion to Set a Time to Adjourn is undebatable; requires no second; and takes precedence over every other motion on the floor except for a Motion to Adjourn.

Looks like Gen. Hank Robert was on to something when he penned his famous rules back in 1876.

Well, if you're going to toss dead things around, my bottom line is the tried and true non illegitimi carborundum.

Ego inflecto ut poeta pro mihi.

trans: I bow to the poet before me.

Zen Master Sum Yung Ting sez: "Man who can pen Poe can do anything." ;D


(BTW: That was a riff on The Bells wasn't it?)

Ah, Sum Yung Ting, in salad daze, sez: "Always keep Poe pen mind."

A direct quotation... whole new interpretation of cells, eh?  :)

I always just lit a cigar.  That had the effect of ending the meeting.

In June of  1984 we were 42 % of 1983 in meetings.
