Again, when nitpicking, make sure **you're** correct:
  you're -> contraction of you are
  your -> possesive pronoun, as in "your two English-major

  One night a few weeks back at work, the radio station went off the air
at about 10 PM.  Not wanting to listen to silence for 5 hours, we came
up with a way to hack music into the PA system.  We called the shop
and put that phone (a speaker phone) on hold to get the hold music.
Then, we put a phone next to it that had the all-page code typed into
it.  The speaker phone blared into the other one, which then sent it
over the PA.  Needless to say, the quality was horible, and the noise
>from  the 6 or so phones in the office could be heard through 2 doors.

  Remembering to hack my post so it actually shows up instead of
disapearing into the bit-bucket.
