The little things I dig

So I started my new job today. While most people would probably talk about the office, the people, where they had lunch or whatever, I have to talk about the phone.

As my three readers know, I'm a huge 24 fan. Best show ever. And if you watch the show, you know that in the CTU facility that they have these cool Cisco phones with a distinctive ring.

When they showed me to my desk, I recognized the phones. I heard one ring somewhere and I was really disappointed as it didn't have the right ring. I finally got around to playing with mine and found there were a ton of different rings. Most of them sucked, but then I got to the last one... labeled "24." Score!

No Michelle Desslers walking around though. :)

GOD I'm so effing jealous.

I got your picture message today of the phone and was like "NOOOOO WAAAAY!"

That's even cooler you got the ring. I wanted to get that for my cellphone at one point, but the phone we have is gay for that kind of stuff.

I also somewhat looked into the phone that was on the show, but of course they're mad expensive. Can you steal me one?

The phones at Best Buy have the 24 ringer on them.

Probably the ones at Best Buy, not any for sale.

Just wait until the network goes down, or the programming gets fucked up. We have the Cisco IP Phones and although they are pretty neat for features, whenever the network burps either here or in Ann Arbor, they go down.

Mine also has this nasty habit of getting "confused" and won't let me answer a ringing line. I won't go into the voice mail hassles.

Hopefully your company has a much better handle on these phones than the U does.

Depending on your cellphone, there is a good chance you could make the 24 ringer and upload it to your phone yourself.... or let me know the make/model of the phone and I can look into it for you.

CPLady... that's the fun of "IP Only" phones.

The kind I represent run in standard PBX/Key mode as well.

Hooray for Avaya, who oddly enough, had a great product placement on last week's 24!

I looked for a 24 ringtone for my Verizon Motorolla phone and couldn't find one compatible.
