    I just googled that and guess what: https://int3.cc/products/usbcondoms haha It doesn't say in the description that it prevents your phone from frying, but logically that's the first device to fry...

    I picked this up in a heap of old computer, radio, and telephone equipment, from a guy who had been an engineer in the Navy, then an engineer/lineman/programmer at Bell Labs in NJ: It's an *actual* milliwatt! I can't find the BSP for it online, but I did find a hardcopy on eBay, so I'll scan that in when I get it. Battery test points, this is the battery (well, the top of an old one): 45V "B batteries" were common in old radios and other higher-than-we're-used-to voltages were common in other types of test gear. For instance, a kick meter uses a different 45V battery (looks like a giant 9V and is still made). Top of the internal circuit subassembly, the battery goes in the space seen at the top of the picture: Here's the circuit: Typical Western Electric, potted networks, switchboard jacks, and expensive resistors and capacitors. Not yet sure if the pot varies pitch or level. You can see there's a single very old GE transistor in a metal can package clipped to the side of the uppermost (4002A) network, presumably the only active component in the circuit.

    Thank you Simple Note! For making a native Linux app with markdown you are AWESOME! Good bye Evernote! Your web-app just sucks as do your mobile apps! Here is a hint: functionality over JavaScript blinking and sliding widgets!

    It reminded me of the guy who used to be on the Atlanta airport train recordings up until quite recently, actually. It was fairly new, relatively speaking (~2000 or so?), but the voiceover guy tried to go for a oldschool, mid-20th century radio style of announcing. 206-973-5010 - Skeevy sounding psychic line 206-973-5025 - Login prompt for said skeevy sounding psychic line 402-376-0012 - Low speed modem (2400/- bps) AXE-10s seem to always have these weird, off-frequency tones just lying around. If you bothered to call the modems, you'll notice the ring is kinda off-frequency too: 402-376-0025 - Weird tone 402-376-0026 - Other weird tone 402-376-0000 - I can never figure out what this is; all Qwest AXE-10s have them. Notice there's a burst of ring that's more than likely not coming from the AXE-10. Not sure about that reorder. Maybe it's waiting for digits in that whitespace? 402-376-0065 - Coin deposit recording with a *lot* of reverb. I dunno why, but this made me laugh. 402-376-0085 - Modem

    No need for an apology at all, these numbers are outside of the general new "Some Numbers" post... Please consider my time on these a personal thank you to the many posts which I have enjoyed... and the fun numbers i've called (my favorite number being the "AM Transmitter" one). This scan gave me a bunch more interesting items than the previous scan... I've bolded the items I found the most interesting (modems are always interesting, so they haven't been bolded).

    What do you mean? and is Opencache an alternative to Geocache for North Muricans?
