@md2perpe: "So... Have you learnt how to access and use a woman?" I would assume so, considering Jeff has a toddler and twin babies. (I might add, so do I: I found out about my twins soon after this post: http://www.codinghorror.com/blog/2011/10/on-parenthood.html *high five*)

I could have lived at a college when studying at university, which by my reading of Wikipedia is the same as a "frat house" in US-speak. http://www.usq.edu.au/accommodation/steelerudd So more examples of different jargon in different places? :)

Wow, the USA cell phone market must suck majorly. I'm on $15 (Australian dollars) per month plan, which includes more than enough "credit" for me (not a 1:1 relationship to "minutes" due to flagfalls, off-peak, SMS, etc; all incoming calls and SMS are free) and even includes 1GB of mobile data. My landline costs me $22/month and has higher call rates than my mobile and no included credit: I really only have it for DSL. These days landlines can receive SMS messages anyway, via a special phone or text-to-speech. My wife is on a pre-paid plan and barely uses the minimum $10 every three months. So we have two mobiles for less than the landline base cost! With calls mobiles are at least an order of magnitude better value, for us at least.
