I don't have a direct cite, take a look on google for how cell phones
work. The system has to know the cell you are in so that it can route
calls to you. When your phone is on, the phone is communicating with
the cell you are in.
Ayup. We had our telco security call the office once to find out if I
really had traveled from Rochester NY to Mpls/St. Paul in the 3 hours
between cell calls they saw in their logs. They were able to place me
at both airports and were apparently concerned that my cell may have
been stolen or cloned (or both).
The call came to the office while I was still at the Mpls airport,
their security red-flagged it immediately.

even get off the lumber yards lot with his tires dug into

debunkafications I could cite..
I also have a hard time believing the woman is asleep with all the
commotion going on. I think she's DEAD. And the sacks of concrete in the
back seat are intended to make up a pair o' galoshes for her. While the
guy was at the Borg picking up the quickcrete, he got distracted and a
bit carried away with a Blue Light Special on ply and sticks.

After having seen the way some people load their trucks at the Borg, I *do*
believe it. I once watched a couple load what had to be over a ton of treated
two-bys into the bed of an S-10 (looked like they were planning a deck). They
loaded the short boards first, then the long ones, so the whole stack was
tilted down toward the back of the truck. And of course the whole truck was
tilting that way too, from the weight. They left with the woman driving, and
the man sticking his arm out through the window in the back of the cab to hold
the load down.

The only thing I ever knew of that actually worked, after Kalifornia
cops gave up ticketing bozos who parked in handicapped spaces, was the
tool my paternal grandmother had me make.
She was handicapped, badly. Had trouble operating the _diagonal wire
cutters_ she carried in her car.
I had some long extensions welded on the handles, and that made it a
lot easire for her to snip off >tire stems<.
No one ever gave her any grief, and the various cops had no choice but
ticket the offender because the vehicle was still in the handicapped
slot when they finally showed up.
Couple of hardheads though they'd beat granny up over some $2.00 tire
stems, but a snootful of Mace changed their minds.
Granny was a mean ol' bitch.

According to the text, the driver was off running up and

It blows real good. Trouble is so does the lumber car.
Whenever you use an acronym for the first time within a document, its
proper etiquette to first write out the entire phrase...and then put
the acronym in parentheses next to the phase. From that point on,
only the acronym need be written.

With any subsequent document (newsgroup post) however, the above
procedure should again be followed.
Following such a procedure makes it easy to create your own acronyms
for long phrases that may be unique...and only pertinent...to your

for his inquiry...and for your answer.
And, of course...acronyms and abbreviations are different matters.
