How can I remember to always put my mobile phone on silent before meetings and turn it back on afterwards?

I'm in the middle of grabbing all the parts to build a new PC for myself.

I've looked at both Intel's and Asus's websites, and of course the Google to no avail. Details on what I'm looking for inside. [more inside]

Was relating a couple mnemonics to a friend, words or common abbreviations that are spelled by using the first letters of a group of things. Those that came to mind: HOMES for the Great Lakes, A PAIL for types of wounds and ETC for people who attend religious services on Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Possibly shoddy Google-fu leaves me unable to find more (not the ROY G BIV variety), but here's hoping the Hive Mind can share some.
