Hey all!

It's Alex here saying hello from Mountain View, California.

I arrived here five minutes ago and already have an important question answered by reading a thread

(re: intake forms for iPads)

so this has been great_and I decided to join.

A little about me:

I parent, practice tai chi, garden, eat Paleo

and run a busy massage, bodywork, and fitness practice out here in Silicon Valley

my website is

am easily overwhelmed by paperwork

Hence the ipad thing

my number #1 pet peeve?

is receiving phone calls from clients in the lobby

to tell me that they are "here"

Pet peeve #2 is spending money on stuff that I used to do without just fine

before I started spending money on it

and pretty soon couldn't live without

(I feel like George Carlin is hovering around)

anyway last month I said goodbye to AT&T after 15 years

of being a loyal subject

now I'm phone-free

(as well as Gluten-free)

no radiation

no stupid phone calls

I'm not disconnected mind-you

still reasonably tech-savvy

just strictly using WIFI and VoIP

When I'm not fixing back-pain and chronic stress

or googling for answers to life's most pressing problems

(which hopefully I'll have more time to do now that the paperwork problem is solved)

I blog about life in the spa business at

Warm regards and see you online,

Alex Frigino BA CMT

Hi Alex,


We hope you'll resurrect some old threads and add your two cents to them! We've got a few threads dealing with VoIP, so you may want to start there. :)

Try these to get you going:
May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, leading to the most amazing view. May your rivers flow without end, meandering through valleys tinkling with bells...
