abg: I like the idea.
However, the biggest problem that I've seen is the one you list as #1:
the words aren't ideal for speaking.
I, personally, speak with somewhat of a drawl. "and" and "ant" aren't
going to be very distinguishable. I agree somewhat with
jbucata, in that the number of letters seems less
important than the speakability of the resulting words.
Also, what happens when IPv6 takes over? I really don't want to
rattle off sixteen words...
Carter is highly respected. He may not have been an effective
President (and I don't think anyone disputes that, even him) but he's
been one of the most effective former Presidents we've ever had.
(Am I the only one who finds it strange that the same people lambast
Carter for 'lusting in his heart' but support Clinton, who acted on
it? (Don't get me wrong, Clinton was a great President, and what he
did with Ms. Lewinsky was his business, but geez, get rid of the
double standards already...))
When will I ever learn to stop feeding trolls?
OK... in the last week I've turned in the three assignments that have
weighed the most on my mind. (UI Design website and paper, and
Communications for Engineers group directions assignment)
Got the UI design paper back on Monday, got a 95. I'm happy.
One more final and I'll be done with this term.
However, registration for next term's classes has been a
problem. Since I haven't been able to get my transcript from North Georgia Tech, USF won't let me register.
I just hope the courses are still open when all is said and done.
Just got a CD binder. It holds 208 CDs. I have every CD-ROM I have
in it. They come up to 160 CDs.
Audio CDs aren't in the binder, because I'd prefer to be able to keep
them in my car, or in my bookbag, or wherever else they're needed.
I'm heading up to visit my mom and brother in Georgia again. I'll
probably be leaving around 18 Dec.
screw your courage to the sticking-place
