there was once this period when I used to be able to answer my phone at
all times. Now, I'm usually online so I think everyone who used to call
either calls my cell when I've made my # available to them, or... otherwise,
they've just given up.
Don't ask me why, but... I never got into the habit of re-recording over
old answering machine tapes, if I was out, I'd buy some new ones, replace
the old one, and well... save it for posterity. I think I must have about
7 or 8 tapes that I've held onto which, in some cases, date back to the
mid-90's. So... there's been plenty of messages of people I thought were
interesting, funny and odd. Messages from people I don't talk to anymore,
messages from people who... sort of mark a period in time that involved
them and then just... disappeared.
to transfer some of these recordings onto cd. From the first tape recorded,
there have been a few unusual but interesting messages. Some, a bit too
personal at times where, unfortunately, I'd feel very wrong posting them
here. But nonetheless, for what I have found, I am curious as to what is
on the other tapes and how interesting those are. The ones posted here for
this 1st round unfortunately may not the most "exciting" messages,
but for one reason or another, I thought they'd be good for starters.
I'm also looking into if there are any sort of "free voicemail"
sites (sort of like the one lycos or excite had at one point), so that maybe,
I'd set something up where the public can call and leave a message or say
hello. If anyone out there happens to know of any such free service, please
drop me a line...
Now enjoy yet another completely useless section on this site... :)
