The telephone landed its own gallery show first, way back in 1968. People on one end of the curly-corded land line carried out instructions in art-making issued by folks at the other end. Later - much later - came a retrospective devoted to the graph- ics and snapshots created by the gadget's annoying, chirpy little cousin, the cell phone. Both types of talking machine are still, God help us, very much in use in modern society. But a national traveling show opening this weekend at the Contemporary Museum celebrates another communication device that is on its way out: the fax machine.

New Orleans. -- You can fax your prayers to the Wailing Wall now,which proves what I've been suspecting for years, namely that there are no more people.All there is now is God and technology, which may be one and the same thing. I mean, if you take away the journey, which has to be undertaken by a real physical being in a body, and that body's physical experience of place, all you have left is the ideas.There is the idea of ''prayer,'' and the idea that you can send it off to God. All you need is a fax and a god, two things that most people seem to have these days.

Technology is invariably a mixed blessing, especially along the new information highway.The telephone exposed us to the unwelcome aural intrusions of salesmen and solicitors; the automatic dialer and recorded message cranked up the insult level several more notches.Now comes the growing popularity of the fax machine, which miraculously allows the printed word to quickly travel over those same lines; it avoids the nuisance of instant interruption but pushes the entire message in the face of the recipient, who's denied even the scant consolation of slamming down the receiver.

HAGERSTOWN -- He's a college professor who has never held public office and eschews party politics. Yet Don Allensworth considers himself to be a serious Democratic contender for governor.Don who? Mr. Allensworth, 59, concedes that his is not a household name among Maryland voters. But he contends that he can change that as he wages a decidedly unorthodox campaign."I'm not known, so I have to figure out ways of becoming known," said Mr. Allensworth, an investor and planning consultant from Hagerstown.

The Q: While technology keeps making it easier for people to reach us by phone, more of us would prefer that it didn't. Several questions recently have focused on reducing calls from charities and telemarketers and how the National Do Not Call Registry applies. Reader Chris Thomas of Phoenix, Md., wants to know, "Is there some equivalent for unwanted faxes? We have a fax machine for our home businesses and we get unwanted faxes a lot - especially in the middle of the night or early morning."

Betti has had it with junk faxes. Most of them are solicitations for mortgages or refinancing. Neither of which interests her. "These are particularly annoying as they cost me money in ink cartridges and paper," the Baltimore resident writes in an e-mail. She figures unwanted faxes pitching products and services eat up a ream of paper in her home fax machine over the year. "Do you know what to do about these?" she asks. Betti has plenty of unhappy company. The Federal Communications Commission received about 32,400 complaints on unsolicited faxes last year.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- It was love at first sight when Dr. Roxanne Jeffries spotted the titanium blue Jaguar convertible at an upscale dealership. But wanting to be a smart consumer, she kept her head and asked the salesman: "Can you run a CarFax for me?" Jeffries was delighted when the CarFax vehicle history report he handed over minutes later said there had been no reports of accidents, flood or frame damage for the car. "It was a page covered with fat check marks, indicating it was a clean history," said Jeffries, an oral surgeon from Miramar, Fla. "I literally kissed the car's license plate in the parking lot."

So many of today's communication electronic devices are acquiring the ability to connect to the Internet. The telephone does; it's called Voice Over Internet Protocol or VoIP. Several digital camera models can go online. Television devices such as the SlingBox let you see what's being displayed on your TV from anywhere you can get Internet access. So it was inevitable that we'd eventually see a fax machine go online, too. The UX-B800SE BroadbandFax from Sharp Corp. is a normal progression of that technology.

A candidate for the Orphans' Court of Baltimore City has erroneously suggested in official correspondence that she is a current member of the court, according to a letter released yesterday by the Maryland Judicial Campaign Conduct Committee. The committee criticized Ramona Moore Baker for having a business card and signing letters as "Ramona Moore Baker, Judge of The Orphans Court. Balt. City" and for sending a fax with the heading "Judge of the Orphans Court." "It is the committee's determination that the materials disseminated by you or those under your authority ... are misleading," said the Aug. 28 letter, addressed to Moore Baker and signed by committee co-chairmen George Beall, a former U.S. attorney for Maryland, and Stephen H. Sachs, a former Maryland attorney general.
