One thing they should be made aware of before jumping on the Betty Blocks wagon.
Looking at the website, it appears they'll need to have someone sitting next to them, staring at what they're doing while using the system. I don't know if that's a safety thing, like a spotter at the weight bench, or if the system itself actualy requires two people doing the work.
If the latter, they may find they'll need to double their workforce.
We won't sit down.
We won't shut up.
We won't go quietly away.
Strangely, I don't.
My mother is still in there - though I removed her address and phone number. If nothing else, it means I still get a reminder on her birthday ... it's probably silly of me, but I just don't want to remove them; it's a bit too "final" if you understand what I mean.
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...

Yes, I understand very well, Griff. It's hard to let go - it's so final. A girl I loved for decades died last year of scleroderma is still alive in my dreams and prayers - her Facecrack site is still alive and well - and I hate to part with her, though I'm still in contact with her kids, who I helped to raise.
Had to read through the entire thread before I realized that your use of the word 'dead' was meant in a literal sense and not metaphorical.
With the increase in inexpensive storage space, I only remove contacts which I can't remember any details about. If a person has passed away, they are still in there. If I look through the list and see their name, it is a reminder of the good times we shared.
Otherwise any contact I made over the course of my life or career might be useful down the line, even if I need to make an effort to track them down. On the other hand if it is a person that I don't wish to associate with any more, I move them to the blocked contact section instead.
