SIGNS YOU LIVE IN THE USA IN Y2.001K

1. You just tried to enter your password on the microwave.

2. You have a list of 15 phone numbers to reach your family of three.

3. You call your son's beeper to let him know it's time to eat. He emails
(or AIMs) you back from his bedroom, "What's for dinner?"

4. Your daughter sells Girl Scout Cookies via her web site.

5. You chat several times a day with a stranger from South Africa, but you
haven't spoken with your next door neighbor yet this year.

6. You check the ingredients on a can of chicken noodle soup to see if it
contains Echinacea.

7. Your grandmother asks you to send her a JPEG file of your newborn so she
can create a screen saver.

8. You pull up in your own driveway and use your cell phone to see if
anyone is home.

9. Every commercial on television has a web-site address at the bottom of
the screen.

10. You buy a computer and 6 months later it is out of date and now sells
for half the price you paid.

11. Leaving the house without your cell phone, which you didn't have the
first 20 or 30 years of your life, is cause for panic and your turn around
to go get it.

12. Using real money, instead of credit or debit, to make a purchase would
be a hassle and take planning.

13. Cleaning up the dining room means getting the fast food bags out of the
back seat of your car.

14. Your main reason for not staying in touch with family is that some do
not have e-mail addresses. Then you find out that they do and just didn't
tell you.

15. You consider second-day air delivery painfully slow.

16. Your dining room table is now your flat filing cabinet.

17. Your idea of being organized is multiple-colored Post-it notes.

18. You hear most of your jokes via e-mail instead of in person.

19. You get an extra phone line so you can get phone calls.

20. You disconnect from the internet and get this awful feeling, as if
you just pulled the plug on a loved one.

21. You get up in morning and go online before getting your coffee.

22. You wake up at 2am to go to the bathroom and check your E-mail on your
way back to bed.

23. You start tilting your head sideways to smile. :)

24. You're reading this.

25. Even worse; you're going to forward it to someone else.

Sounds daft to me, but they're not allowed to sell them in US
Embassies either

SMS is the text messaging system on cell phones, done similar to email, but goes
between cell phones only. I believe that it is possible to send to it through
email if the cellphone provider has the facility available. It sounds like AIM
is AOL's version using their front end. SMS is generic to almost all the cell
phones on sale in UK, Australia and New Zealand that I know of.

There has already been some sort of virus which sent messages to random cell
phone numbers, and the news community seem to think it will be the next "big
virus thing"(tm) after email viruses.

DISCLAIMER I have no experience with using SMS, so this is my understanding from
what I have gleaned in newspaper reports and adverts. Anyone with more accurate
knowledge please feel free to issue corrections where needed.

I've already been spammed by an e-mail text message (I have not signed up for
any specific text messaging service) for some religious internet web site--
on MY CELL PHONE!!  The first and only text message I've got. A creepy feeling
to have my phone vibrating at me at 2:00 AM to deliver this kind of message.

Best regards,
