QotD: Danger Is My Middle Name

When was the last time you did something dangerous?

That depends on what you consider dangerous.  Many people consider white water rafting dangerous – but for the most it's just exhilerating.  No, to be really dangerous, you have to do something stupid.

When I was in High School I (driving an old van), I raced another high school senior down a local street.  About half way down the street we encountered a car facing away from us turning left.  Without room to do anything else, I passed the car on the left and my competitor passed them on the right.  Fortunately for all of us, the driver did not turn.

Stupid or dangerous – or both.  Both.

Cool Voice Technology Services

I ran across a few cool services I want to share with everyone. 

The first is Jott and it allows you to send email messages to yourself and others.  The process is very painless:

  1. Set up your account including your cell phone number and your e-mail address.
  2. Call the Jott toll free number.
  3. Indicate who you want to send a message to by saying their name (“me” or “myself” for yourself).
  4. If you sent the message to yourself then you have an e-mail with the text of the voice message and the actual voice message.  If you sent it to someone else – they have both.

The second service is called CallWave.  It’s even more impressive.  With it, you can have all of your voice mail forwarded to your own email account.  The only downside is that you have to switch your carrier’s voice mail to CallWave’s.  Again, you aren’t paying for the service.
