Eight steps to building an HP BladeSystem

A Texas cinema with a strict no-mobe policy has demonstrated that it really means business by throwing out a persistent texter, then turning her mini-rant against ejection into a big screen trailer.

Austin's Alamo Drafthouse explains: "Recently, we had a situation where a customer persisted in texting in the theatre despite two warnings to stop. Our policy at that point is to eject the customer without a refund, which is exactly what went down that night. Luckily, this former patron was so incensed at being kicked out, she quickly called the office and left us the raw ingredients for our latest "Don't Talk or Text" PSA [Public Service Announcement]. You can check it out below, or come to the Alamo this weekend where the video will be playing before all of our R-rated movies."

Good stuff. Tim League, the Alamo's CEO and founder, declares on the cinema's blog: "Ma'am, you may be free to text in all the other theaters in the Magnited States of America, but here at our 'little crappy ass theater', you are not. Why you may ask? Well, we actually do give a f*$k."
