OK, I know I'm old and living in the dark ages, but whenever I see this statement (and many people have made it), I wonder how we managed before mobiles.
I was involved in huge logistic operations during my time in MOD. We managed fine. Yes it could take half an hour before somebody came to the phone, but it rarely stopped us. Even well into the Millennium we were managing mainly on land lines, and answer machines. I wonder what can't wait just a little bit longer.
