Turns out that the reason our fax has been spewing "no fax" reports for the past several days when we have been out, is that it has been beating our answering machine to the phone and consequently screaming in everyone's ears.
Sorry about that.
I didn't pay much attention to it until today when I came home to a rather profane answering machine message that sounded exactly like someone receiving some unexpected hearing damage.
Oops. My bad.
I would blame it on Drew, as he was here when the fax was re-plugged-in, but we can't really expect him to configure electronics.
That's like asking an ape to crochet you an afghan.
You know he'll use that scratchy bargain yarn, and you'll just have to do it all over again yourself.
