    I don't think electrical tape will ever be discontinued.

    +1. I also think duct tape won't ever be discontinued.

    I have a vintage Western Electric 302 rotary dial phone, circa 1937, with a genuine die cast zinc alloy body, instead of the bakelite bodies which WE had to use just before WWII. I think I need to replace the transmitter and receiver in the handset. Fortunately, the local telephone switch serving me accepts its dial pulses and lets me dial numbers that way. The ringer is really loud and made with brass gongs for that loudness.

    I carry with me at all time a pen and a small pocket note book to write reminder despite always having my BlackBerry with me. Works better for me

    That would be really cool if it could be connected to an alarm clock and used as the ringer. It would be loud enough to wake the dead.

    Not my buddy. He can sleep for twenty minutes through a 120 db Screamin' Beekin' alarm. It could wake up neighbors two doors down

    When my truck AC and alternator failed the same hot, steamy night in Virginia, I found myself streaming sweat trying to get some sleep, as the surrounding motels were too full to get a room. I was dreaming of some way to sleep comfortably. Outside was 90 with 90+ humidity, but it was 105 in the cab. The fan I had just blew hot air.

    After an hour, I got up and went to the restaurant, and asked them for a meat box and a trash bag. I then went to the store and got two bags of ice. Toted it all out to the truck, where I put the bag in the bottom of the box, the ice fit in perfectly to fill the bottom of the box. I then cut small holes in one side of the lid, and a single hole in the other, sized for my turbo fan. I taped the lid in position, and inserted the intake side of the fan.

    When I flipped it on, cold air blasted out and washed over me. I was asleep in minutes, with a satisfaction that was hard to beat.

    I still use an Exacompta planner in which I write everything I put in my phone calendar and more. Each weekly page has a page for notes. And i use sticky page markers for important pages of info I want to find quickly.
