Show me the money!

This entry was posted by on Tuesday, 28 December, 2004 at

Thanks to a fairly lucrative christmas, I have been able to buy myself the one thing that I wanted desperately, but could never really justify the expense of (though I still got a phenomenally great deal on):

The Plantronics CS50 900 MHz Wireless Office Headset System


Key Features:
* 8 hours of wireless talk time
* 300 feet roaming distance
* 900MHz for secure conversations
* Features integrated IntelliStand
* Wearing option of over the ear or over the head

So now I can be the high-powered executive type “mover and shaker” when helping sysadmins with their server issues… But more importantly, I simply won’t be tangled in those damn headset wires any more.

Bow to my uber-geekiness, if only for the fact that this damn little headset has got me all twitchy and inexplicably excited. It should be arriving sometime next week. I can’t wait!

  1. well done…

    …and you get extra points for it making sense for you to actually own one of those. The admins on this floor started ordering them with all the consistency of a fashion trend late last year. Every one of them walked around with the thing on their heads, when they weren’t on the phone, all over the floor, for weeks with very self-satisfied appearances. They were cool, and they knew it. But I think the last straw for me was when I saw one of our trainers walking around with that thing on. An admin, I’m willing to believe is on the phone enough to justify it. But a trainer?

    Fi on corporate office supply ordering.

    And congrats on your celebratory geekiness.

    and Happy New Year too.

    Thanks! And a Happy New Year’s to you as well. I hope yours was as fun or relaxing as you wanted it to be.

    I had found the headset previously, but this time I was able to actually buy it for under $150! Plantronics lists it for $299…. having said that, I was still hesitant to spend even that much on a headset.

    Let me tell you, I have no idea how I did my job prior to having a wireless headset! It has made my life so much easier in the 2 and a half days I’ve had it. Not to mention the quality of the call has far surpassed what I had expected. I am a very happy boy indeed.

    Now if it would only stop raining so I can ride my new motorcycle more, I’d be in heaven 🙂

    oooh. Almost forgot:

    As a side note, my boss is now working on getting everyone in our department a set after he saw mine, how much I loved it, what it has done for my work methods, and found out what I paid for it. Which is actually good news for me because that means I’d be reimbursed for the cost! 🙂

    See? They spread like wildfire. Wireless telephones are the new black in the office space apparently. And so is corporate reiumbursement. Although it should always be the new black. Getting your money back never grows old.

    Ha!

    Boss man told me late today that he just got the OK from his executive to get the entire crew these headsets. He also just took a copy of my invoice as well. So we all benefit: I got the wireless headset I wanted, and will be getting my money back (which will go towards paying for my new riding boots and armoured pants, while my co workers will get all new headsets that will provide us all with more flexibility to do our jobs better!

    But most importantly, I will get reimbursed 🙂
