Re: [LinkStation_General] LinkStation sensitive to cell phone radio waves?
- In the old "Analog" cell phone days (in which the
phones had more powerful transmitters), I could stop a
CD player from playing by calling a cell phone near
the player. Unfortuantlely I found this out when I
was doing some work in a live radio studio!
I guess you need a radiation-hardened LinkStation.

Having another person's trust is more powerful than all other management techniques put together. I have no legal or explicit power. I only have the power of having people's trust -- but that's a lot of power.
