The story of my morning: teleconferences, and staring at my computer screen.

If you're in outer space do you have to dial 9 to get an outside line?

gfmorris says:
I know! I got called into a TC before I even left the house this morning. I tied in via my cell phone and just drove to work while I listened.

Is that a special NASA phone? Carbon fiber, weathersealed?

Is that story about us spending billions to develop a pen that would write in space while the Russians just used pencils true, or just commie propaganda?

gfmorris says:
@bigo I have to stretch out the artifacts. I only have so many of them in my office that I can use without getting into trouble with Legal.

orangebeard says:
it looks like you are staring at your photo from yesterday and thinking..."what was I thinking". ha!

gfmorris says:
@pip Yes, yes it did. And now I know how to use it.

@shularbrau Billions, maybe not. But did we spend lots of money on it? yes.

gfmorris says:
@orangebeard Yeah, well. Temporary insanity.

I don't care *whose* career you have to ruin, just GET ME TO JUPITER!!

gfmorris says:
@jnonfiction /2010/ scared me about going to Jupiter. I'm afraid The Monolith will eat the planet but HAL won't fire the engine in time, and Dr. Chandra will have disabled my calculator-based override, and ...

Can you tell I watched the last half-hour of /2010/ on Saturday?

wiseacre says:
Forget Jupiter, get me to Europa!

gfmorris says:
@wiseacre I take that ATTEMPT NO LANDINGS THERE bit damn seriously.

@foreveringreen CLAME to buy one on Amazon, which may not look like mine. Mine I got for the award that's over my right shoulder. You'd, uh, have to work in manned spaceflight and apparently be awesome to get that.

gfmorris says:
@hale I'd rather go over to the USSRC and go get some shots over there. Wonder if they'd let me in the sims ...

hiya gfmorris, how are things your way today?

tedford says:
no way Legal's going to let you show off that death ray. I think you're resourceful enough to find a way though

gfmorris says:
@tedford ... shhhhhhhhh ...

I can guess the random space object.

I believe they are referred to as "telephones" and are used for vocal communication.

ThatGuy says:
your expression says it all. C'mon quitin' time.

gfmorris says:
Sadly, this was pretty early in the day for that face. But today was overall a good day, @thatguy.

gfmorris says:
@keifel -1 for two f's.

@mattyc I think we know the pain.
