Happy DBA day 2009! Last year it was Saturday and this year it is Sunday. So, for all of you still working and lucky enough to have a DBA, when you go back to work Monday, please remember to wish your DBA a belated happy DBA day and do something nice for him or her to show your appreciation. Let's keep up the tradition. I know we all appreciate the help we get from our DBA members here on OraFAQ.

Hanging on your wall? I keep my calendar on my computer. I have the Littlefoot gender check on my calendar for May 30th, 2012, as on May 26th, 2011, he said a year after Monday. I have also saved a link to that post.

Yes, I am very analog. My cell phone is from 2001 (probably the oldest in the country) and has no color, camera, funny rings, test messaging, etc. and I LOVE it!

My first cell phone was analog, the next one was some sort of "tri-mode" and the newest that I bought in January of 2008 when the old one broke is all digital. When I bought the newest one, it was the only model that did not have the camera and other features that I don't use and did not want. It does have text messaging but I have disabled that. It is a "senior citizen model" that has big numbers that I can see in the dark without my glasses and I can turn it up nice and loud so I can hear the ring and hear people on the other end. It is also very easy to remove the battery and connect the charger and hands-free headset.

Nowadays most laptops come with a built-in webcam, which I don't use. I don't like the idea of people potentially being able to hack into my system and activate the web-cam. So, I use a very low-tech solution, a piece of black electrical tape across the lense.

I have one of the originals & it too has analog capability.

FWIW - My Significant Other was chief designer of this phone's software which is why I have kept it in service for more than a decade.

Unfortunately, where I live, Sprint PCS has a lot of areas that aren't covered, compared to solid coverage from Verizon Wireless.
