GNN Blazer Football Rules
I checked my voice mail tonight (which is a big task for me) and was pleasantly surprised to receive a hilarious message from one of my best friends from high school. He was impersonating our high school football coach. I never played football or lacrosse in high school so I don’t have a good Coach Greene imitation in me. I can say I once got chewed out by Coach Greene (nose-to-nose, spit in your face style) after I (maybe-accidentally) pegged a disabled student in the head playing European Handball. Let’s just say that Coach Greene would do great coaching football in the south in the 1950’s.
I cracked up when I heard the message and then saved it. Not sure why though, because all my saved messages end up expiring in a few weeks. The message was just to good to delete.
I’ve been trying to figure out a good way to save voice messages. It would be great if I can forward them to an email account. This should be pretty easy to do on a blackberry but it isn’t. Luckily, I happened to be reading my friend Charlie’s blog tonight and he mentioned a website called gotvoice that sends your cell phone voice mail to your email. Perfecto!
It took me about five minutes to set up my free account and I tested it out by sending myself Greg’s message. It works great. I’m geeked. Gotvoice should help me track all my voice mails. Currently, I only check a few times a week and inevitable I miss a bunch of messages each week. The service should also let me save those classic messages to listen to on a rainy day.
