  5. I remember doing phone directories of odd and old weird numbers and even payphone numbers. I actually was working on compiling an updated version of the original some numbers thread on binrev but had a drive fail during that time. I'm honestly surprised no one has attempted to do anothee phone phreaking directory especially with the technology and communication being where it's at today.
  6. Hey guys, I've been reading this forum for about 8 years as a guest and I just joined as a member and I'm really interested in these strange phone numbers. I've saved a lot of my favorites over the years and I've started a subreddit over at reddit.com/r/weirdnumbers where I've posted a lot of them. The subreddit is open to new submissions and I've already put a lot of my favorites from this forum there, but if you guys have any others in mind, feel free to share them there as well And this is not just a promotion post for my page, I'm also interested in reviving this one with regular scans I'm going to be posting from now on. I love this forum and its a shame that this thread is mainly dead now because back in the day (2012-2015), I'd come on here every month and find tons and tons of new stuff. Let's make that happen again! ThoughtPhreaker, many of the best posts here and stuff I've shared at r/WeirdNumbers came from your amazing work and scans. You're an inspiration, man, keep up the good work and feel free to join the subreddit. Meanwhile, I'll be here waiting for more of your gems and hopefully posting some new ones myself! I finish off by posting a few of my favorites: All circuits are busy, chopped up message: 580-251-9131 Year 2000 Testing Number (odd): 212-255-9901 Hang up now: 212-251-9901 Live Feed of Fox News: 212-301-3799 Telephone Number, please try again: 516-626-9901 All Channels are normal: 310-347-3277 This number is IN service! : 303-651-0002
  7. I looked up how to hack fire alarm and the first site pops up like TA-DA!
  8. 510-940-0102 as of a couple weeks ago, last time I was on.
  9. Number please?
  10. If anyone was wondering who's been "sandbagging" the line for the last 3 nights, it's just me.
  11. Because of road construction early last year, the phone company installed a new SLC servicing my neighborhood. Not a week after they did somebody hit it with their car, damaging the cabinet and (presumably) breaking the bolts holding it onto the concrete pedestal (seriously, I go to close the door and you can literally rock it back and forth) and it's been damaged since. Lately my line has become intermittant so I called it into repair service last week. They're just now getting out there to fix it as I write this, over a week later. Gee, under Ma Bell they would have been out there working on it within maybe 20 minutes of your call. Centurylink doesn't care about their own outside plant equipment I guess.
  12. Very nice discovery. Thank you for sharing.
  13. Pinned! This is definitely of interest to many people and shouldn't be buried over time.
  14. I have a recording of DTMF tones but I can't find anywhere to decode them. I've tried decoding by ear, but I have no sensory recall, so after a couple of notes, I'm lost. Any ideas on how to decode?
  15. I've worked on this project for quite a while, and have discussed it on the conference, but have never officially posted recordings on here. There is a large presence of analog and electromechanical switches still in service in the former Soviet countries. The following are 3 recordings of me successfully boxing some of these switches: East Ukraine, ATSK Crossbar Using SF (in-band 2600 dial pulse) Signaling -- seizing and SFing another number: http://technotite.com/SF-exampUKR1.wav West Russia, Crossbar Using SF (in-band 2600 dial pulse) Signaling -- seizing and SFing another number: http://technotite.com/SF-exampRUS1.wav East Ukraine, Crossbar Using R1.5 (weird bi-directional MF protocol using R1 tones, used in CIS countries) - seizing and MFing another number: http://technotite.com/R1.5-examp1.wav
  16. indeed... I'm sure it's not what I have saved... do share.
  17. Back in 2007, I designed a blue box for use with my ProjectMF server, a telephone PBX switch that allows phone phreaking in a manner similar to the old days of in-band signalling - MF and SF audio tones. That blue box was based upon the PIC 12F683 8-pin DIP microcontroller. Phil Lapsley ("Exploding the Phone") designed a PCB board for it and many aspiring phreaks have built the circuit over the years. One issue with the original code was that it was written in PicBASIC Pro. PicBASIC had a "tone" command that could produce two simultaneous tones if a 20MHz oscillator was used. However, the tone generation never sounded quite right. David Griffith, a vintage telephony and computer buff, decided to re-write my code in C. He followed the same general design principles as I used in my 2007 box, but added some very impressive features and - most importantly - the tones sound great! The code now runs on a modern 8-bin ATTINY85 microcontroller. Dave has also designed circuit boards for the chip and circuit. However, I found the circuit is straightforward enough to build on protoboard, which allowed me to produce this replica of the blue box featured on the first page of the famous October, 1971 Esquire magazine article which popularized phone phreaking. Dave's code may be found at: https://gitlab.com/DavidGriffith/blue... Manual, schematic and and precompiled .hex files at: https://661.org/proj/bluebox/ df99

  19. Guys, you need to start posting conf number changes in here since there's no more IRC...
  20. I didn't go (couldn't make it). If the current issue is to be believed, looks like there were some real shenanigans going on and I guess this is the one time in the past 20 years I DO wish I could have been there, to sit back, grab a Clubmate and popcorn and take it all in as the shit hit the fan. That's all I'm going to say because it gets political, though apparently politics was what caused Steve Rombaum to flake. Figures.
  21. Still interested in collaborating with folks from my area... Dallas.
  22. this is hot.
  23. I haven't been able to find it again - but I know it was there... At the top of the page it simply said HACKERNET and then below it said "are you into computers, breaking into them, security, blah blah blah" and then went on to say that a group was being put together for like minded individuals --- send your info and we will make you part of our mailing list... For all I know it was an FBI sting or something.. I was young enough I sent my info (and then got busted in operation sundevil - but I dont think the two were related) but never heard another thing. I like collecting stuff like this... If anyone remembers the ad I would love to hear from you and maybe what mag it was from.. I *WANT* to say it was from "Computer Gamer" and likely around 1986...
  24. Thought Phreaker - based on your code I am assuming you are relying on the diva's detection abilities for all of your results - i.e. no soundcard support for your dialer? I got the soundcard support thing figured out in VB... Only thing is - it appears that it will not pass the call off to the sound card until ringing is over... I want to hear the ring... With that said I'm likely going to build voice modem support into my dialer as well. but at least I've gotten this far.. Adding the random/timing elements to the scanner now so at least its functional ... we should collab on this.. it could be a revival of people interested in scanning maybe? Good for everyone..... Me and a buddy were thinking maybe you would be cool to collaborate with in general as well............
  25. dang TP - I guess I didnt remember you sharing the code/tones with me... Thats excellent shared work that will save me an assload of time... I've been seriously considering adding a "save call audio" feature which could then be post-parsed for hits on tones .... not sure whether I should do that or just try to keep it all inside the app live time.. also adding a "rec0n" feature right now that will allow the user to hit various search facilities to gather data about the number. there is also a "cons0le.web" side to this where an individual can handscan from the same databases they are scanning at home, see scanned results, make edits, etc... it is not near as mature as this is and with me being just one guy I figure I'm going to get this piece at least doing rudimentary math, dialing, and detection before giving that web side any more love... funny enough "Darkthrone Scan Director" for the c64 is one of my biggest memories of back in the day that is making me want to get this running..
  26. old school as you can get... lots of work to do but the basics are coming together... being written for the dialogic diva but will eventually also have voice modem support (under windows 7 of course - no TAPI in windows 10...)
  27. Due to the political crisis in the area you are calling, your call could not be completed at this time. Please wait until the regime has had sufficient time to consolidate its power and try your call again. 095T

  29. Announcement: As of last week, the unofficial binrev IRC server has been decommissioned. I know that a few people still liked to hang out there, but honestly it just became too much to maintain. As of now, if you see the name "BinRev" or any other reference to the Binary Revolution, StankDawg, the Digital DawgPound, or any other similar reference anywhere out there, be aware that it is not endorsed or approved by us. The simple reason why is because there were a lot of accusations being made about people in our IRC channels. Since no one is actively managing and monitoring that channel, frankly we did not know what is or is not going on on that server. Rumors started, fingers were pointed, things were said that cannot be unsaid. For that reason, I decided that it was best to just shut it down to save everyone's reputation, even if i have no evidence of wrongdoing. I just don't have time for such nonsense. If people just behave better, then I wouldn't have to do this. Look, IRC is the wild west and people get pissed at each other and launch attacks and accusations at each other and that is what ruins reputations. Such is the nature of IRC. I do not want my reputation or the BinRev reputation to be tarnished by false accusations. I do not know who pissed who off or whether someone did or did not do anything. I do not know what is true or what is not true. I do not judge without evidence. All that I know is that bad accusations were made about some IRC users and I don't want any part of it. If people can't play nicely without fighting and accusing people of doing things, then I am tearing down the playground. So whatever rumors are out there about BinRev or me personally (or anyone else for that matter) take that with a grain of salt. Anyone who has been here for any length of time knows the integrity standards that we uphold here and I continue to be disappointed in this community an how badly we attack each other. DON'T BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU HEAR! Some people just live to start drama. The continued attacks on my integrity, and some of our users integrity, should be something that you should be ashamed of. If people have evidence against INDIVIDUALS and want to present that evidence, then address them individually. But do not assume that we at BinRev approve or are related to any of it. Just because someone hangs out in our forums or our IRC servers or anything for that matter, that they are somehow endorsed or approved by us. We do our best to moderate our systems and we don't always catch everything, especially as shorthanded as we are. So for that reason, the IRC server is going down since we cannot moderate it properly. It is only a matter of time before this site and the forums go down next. Sad but true. My shift is over unless someone picks up the reigns. Will the last person to exit, please turn off the lights.
