stay! stay! stay! stay! stay!

one more cup of coffee: chug! chug! chug!

(I'd probably call it a night too; good reports will be available (or not ) upon waking)

Annoyingly, I have an important meeting scheduled just when EDL occurs.

I don't do dichotic listening well (I can usually barely deal with one audio channel), but am going to give it another try shortly...

Someone should set-up an ITTT for things like this that plays one of several tones when certain events occur. A simple beep on atmospheric interface. A low beep followed by a high beep for successful parachute deploy (a low then low would be a failure.) Then as the events tick by the first tone raises and the second tone indicates good (high) or bad (low). A triple high beep would close out a fully successful sequence.

It's a good thing I read that after my meeting. Or else they would have seen me fall out of my chair and ROFLMAO (out of frame)...

I did read out the important status reports of the EDL sequence during my meeting.

Almost no one found it funny...

Why is that ROFL worthy? Having an "If This Then That" recipe that provides little audio notices for live events would be useful. An example might be the world cup. Set your favored team. When they play every time a team scores either a low tone sounds with their opponent scores or a high tone when they score. At the end of the game to beeps of the same tone tells the winner. A space launch could have a similar thing with progressing 2 tones. Election results, pick your side and get tones as results roll in. When your SO sends an SMS that they are home safe/their flight got in, what ever, a distinct tone sequence that reveals more than the "hey you got an SMS" noise. These could be useful while driving or in a meeting (a vibration pattern if the phone is on silent).
