I have a landline, too, for all the reasons John Scalzi gives including needing it for DSL.

I have vivid memories of the Great Lakes Blackout of 2003, when my neighborhood was without electricity for 5 days. If you get a cheap phone to attack to the landline, you have a phone connection that doesn't require electricity.

I never actually use the landline phone, except to provide that phone number when it's required on forms. It traps all the resulting spam calls in the Caller ID display, for easy disposal.
