Retro Chic

I came across this in the regular advert email from Expansys.

Doesn’t it look cool!

The specification is frankly wierd, including:

  • Incoming calls: Up to 20

  • Outgoing calls: Up to 20

  • I’m just not sure what that’s trying to tell me. Twenty simultaneous calls is a lot to deal with, so I don’t think it’s that, but only being able to make and receive twenty phone calls before you have to throw it out sucks.

    You can see it in its natural environment at Expansys here.

    And no, I don’t plan to buy one, but it is cool.

    Another year older, which is never any fun.

    And it’s even worse when the age gets to a round number again.

    But some things came to cheer me up.

    Exhibit A – a T-shirt found by my sister, one so fabulous that it almost hurts to look at:

    Exhibit B – a remote controlled dinosaur. Yes, you read that correctly. When I rule the world, I’ll be sure to get some geneticists to make me some real dinosaurs, but in the meantime, what could be better? I’m calling him Rory, since he’s got a roar button.

    Rory the dinosaur

    Isn’t he gorgeous?

    I have to admit that I’m also very tempted by an EEE PC.  I had a bit of a play with one in PC World this afternoon, and it’s completely loveable.
