Better than old school pagers from the 80's which just had an earth shattering sound.

I remember being on call for Telecom Gold (uk version of Tymnet) got home from London late pager fell down the side of my bed and I didn't notice.

Later that night at 3am it went off like a small nuke and it literally took me 20 mins and a coffee to gather myself to be able to call the Operators and then logon (dial up to a x.25 PAD)
