Re: ... welcome to the machine
Hawkwind has an Album based on that novella. Couple of good tracks too.

Hawkwind Sadness Runs Deep for me, but still its like mmmmmmumbledumbledumdmdooodooo <missed cal>l. Stuffed in a coat pocket, or in the Kitchen, can't be heard.
Not DRRRM CRASHH DDOO DUMM DEEE DUPP it used to be with my last non mumblephone (not even sure what it was , Nokia maybe? ). bloody thing would wake the deaf dead.
Around 98 at work someone had ripped the sounds off Dungeonkeeper ( maybe 2 ) and shared them around.
So incoming emails were 'whipcrack! arrggh' or ' heheheheh' or one of the 50 other noises. Quite good actually , short enough and distinctive.
I once changed my shutdown noise to the theme to roobarb.
There was a fad for Father Ted quotes as well.
I think I still have the .wavs floating about on a floppy.
As for phones :
I can't hear my phone ring or vibrate unless its strapped to my ear (Galaxy S5) . Especially if I'm outside, its not noisy or buzzy enough.
The number of missed calls outweighs the number I hear by a factor of 3.
As a phone its terrible at making at notifying you that there is a call.
Your title might actually be the answer
- If you have that god awful IBM Trust software installed (Nat West really really pushes to have it installed) there is a setting that converts some l3tt3rs into numb3rs.
Can't remember what it is precisely, but it caused my wife's work business account no end of problems due to it. Took ages to find that out. Of course there's nothing on the Nat West site to check it.
