"Telephones are error-prone, low-bandwidth and high latency communication media that still require real-time response. I like having a conversation face to face, but using a telephone cuts out almost all the bandwidth from that, so that you can only rely on voice, and not even the full spectrum of that."
Add to which that there isn't a polite way of not talking on the phone -- if I'm discussing something over coffee I can have a drink while I'm thinking about what I'm going to say next...

Well, that's an interesting place to put a blog.

Configuring qemu to work as a Windows screensaver.
Not as silly as it sounds -- we could use this to run RMoX or MIG cluster nodes on lab machines...
