    Here's the complete collection of recordings I grabbed of the Odessa 1AESS switch before the cutover. The recordings were made during late may, with the last batch (A-D recordings) made on June 2, 2017 -- days before the cutover. The most interesting recordings I found during the calls to the switch: 1AESS-A.wav - Highest quality recording/best example I have of what a normal call to the 1AESS intercept sounded like. Allows you to hear the background SIT-tone noise before recordings. 1AESS-D.wav - Highest quality recording/best example I have of what a normal call to the 1AESS supervision test sounded like. 1AESS-3.wav - Bizarre because the switch cut to busy after intercept, instead of cutting over to reorder like normal. 1AESS-11.wav - Bizarre because the call, without ring, goes to the 1AESS intercept recording for one cycle, then stops for 20 seconds, and returns the Hillsboro 4ESS '121-T!' recording. 1AESS-14.wav - Bizarre because the call, rings once, goes silent for 30 seconds, then returns the Hillsboro 4ESS '121-T!' recording. 1AESS-15.wav - Bizarre because the call, rings once, goes silent for 40 seconds, then returns a reorder. More descriptions on the other calls are available on the 1A_desc.txt file on the dropbox drive. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/xca3wwskn1mzwzt/AABJMpTS0XDL9NQQgiz4LVI4a?dl=0 Enjoy.

    Hi all, Been busy for a while and was distracted by other facets of life. Signed in today was reading some of the posts to see if anything major or interesting has happened and not much has changed as I expected (no offence). So it seems no harm there in being temporarily gone. Now as I was reading some of the posts and a reply to my "Everything is Assumed" thread I noticed I had been down rep to -6 so I checked the Binary Revolution forum index page where it has a list of where you were down repped and which it was in like each thread over a long past with no replies as to why...I in some ways don't care but was wondering has another spam bot got lose or some dumb-ass, or did I make a thread that offended some community and they say it and one of them joined and down repped me for that. Anyway I was also wondering if this had happened to anyone else as well. Thanks in advance for any replies.

    After reading your comment #4 I also got really annoyed. I agree with Berzerk on this. Correct me if I am wrong, but it seems you don't know the difference between petty theft and hacking. Here is what I consider the difference: HACKING - Taking a computer, and figuring out a way to bypass the password. Disseminating the contents of the drive to find the owner's name, address, and pictures of them to identify them. Being nice and installing programs to help them find their PC if they lose it again. VNC - (to view the system) An SSH server - (to help retrieve their files) An IP beacon - (To say when the PC is online and what the IP address is) [*]Returning the laptop to the owner. [*]Occasionally checking in on the PC to make sure the system is ok, and they didn't lose it again. (What a good citizen!!!) PETTY THEFT - Not using google to find a simple kiddie script. Being an idiot and telling everyone you are committing a crime.

    There's another number to that; 3438. If you're hitting a route that gives you g.729 (sorta ruins that catchy song), it's not a bad idea to try both a few times. Interestingly, the transcoding seems to come on after the C5 chirps; those (and sometimes some Australian sounding ring) are always clear as day. So now when I found this - I actually think I found it with radio_phreak, but when I did, I was about as excited as you can expect. But something wasn't quite right. If you do a RESPORG lookup on 3438/7, it comes back as using the MCI/0222 network. If you call the number directly terminating to the Malaysian destination (you'll find it with a bit of searching) over MCI though, it's end to end SS7. After trying a bunch of carriers with no success, the theory we wound up with is that they were re-originating via a third party country; likely Australia, to shave a few cents off termination charges. Interestingly, when you hop on a conference on that access number, it'll allow you the option to contact customer service for the company, which is based out of Denver. The route you get is _definitely_ not C5. For whatever it's worth, there was another number until semi-recently; 3439 that routed a little differently. Usually it was more likely to get a transcoded route, or other weird things - one route had 450 hertz ringback before the call went offhook quite a lot . But anyway, for whatever it's worth, during Hurricane Sandy it gave you an error recording from a Santera OCX. If I remember right, the other numbers worked fine though. One thing I've noticed is during that song they play for hold music, sometimes it likes to disconnect you in weird ways. The hold music in question passes some notes a few times that definitely sound like 2400 hertz, so I wonder if that has anything to do with it (maybe we should pay attention to the supervision status), or if it's just an apathetic operator hanging up on you. Incidentally, when the call tears down with 2600, you'll hear this curious reorder tone from the international gateway that sorta fades in and out. Based on this, I wonder if it's a type 1 EWSD: https://pastebin.com/q1dvEcVw . So this isn't exactly C5, but a while ago, I found some Axtel DMS logs on Scribd. No, seriously. You can see from there they have quite a few R2 trunks provisioned for end users: 142785363-switch-a.pdf . We were playing with this on the bridge a few months ago - something I sorta want to get into again at some point; a few people seemed pretty excited about it. There's one particular number, +52-818-114-1500 (on the AX2P42 trunk group; labeled STA_CATARINA_CALL_CENTER_PBX_R2. If you look at page 224, you'll see the trunk group type configuration for this and many others; there's a bunch of R2 trunks with generic labels) that will send a backwards 4 in MFC (780 + 1140 hertz)to the switch - indicating a network error when it messes up. Which it occasionally does. Dunno how or if these can be seized, but it seemed worth mentioning. Speaking of which, I don't have the number for this; I had the bright idea of putting it on the speed dial for a calling card and then letting it expire, but Russia has some sort of strange signaling - perhaps another R2 variant floating about in their network. This particular call I remember being to Siberia: weirdmfs.flac . A lot of their switches use whatever this is. It enables them to send vacant number conditions and such over their signaling network. All I do here besides try and hit some DTMF is whistle 2600 twice; once to seize the trunk, and another time to make the switch get all angry. The tones you hear are the standard R1 frequency set, but obviously an R1 trunk never barks MFs back at you. EDIT: Crap, I forgot about the Cuba stuff. From what I understand, Havana if no other place has a reasonably modern network of Alcatel gear. As for the fixed GSM terminals, there's some older documents on Cuban telecom infrastructure lying around. All of them seem to point towards the Cuban fixed network being very over capacity. That could have something to do with that particular addition. As for Paraguay, radio_phreak mentioned to me a while back a particular set of numbers that would route to C5 trunks over some carriers. I believe it was +595-528-222-xxx. Back to the C5 stuff though, does anybody know where we can find a protocol spec document for it? That'll probably help us with some of the oddities we've found on some of these trunk groups. Another EDIT: http://www.itu.int/rec/T-REC-Q.140-Q.180/en Holy shit, another EDIT: http://www.binrev.com/forums/index.php?/topic/47028-portugal/#comment-364799 portugal_c5.flac One (hopefully) last thing - for anybody looking for international credit, I've found http://www.call2.com to be pretty good for the most part. Most of their routes look to be resold MCI, the rates are reasonable, and it tends to be decent quality. It is a callback service though, so it can be a little clunky for a large number of calls like in a scan. DMS-10 loops can be a good way to make this a little less painful. I feel kinda gross giving out a plug like that, but given the relative obscurity of the service and the content of the thread, it seems appropriate.

    0800 890 595 is now a (quite rare) example of the equipment engaged tone. I haven't done much looking for interesting switching/signalling since the early 2000s. It's got more difficult now because most people and businesses in poor countries have jumped straight to GSM (+successors). Back then, it would (as radio_phreak notes) be much more productive to look in the provincial towns and cities of poor countries than in their main cities. My preferred method was to look online for hotels or businesses in those backwater areas, ideally finding their fax numbers, and call those. Much prefer bothering a fax machine than disturbing a person. Now-a-days you need to do this armed with the country's dialling plan (wikipedia usually has these) - and most of the numbers you find will be mobiles. Re Cuba, I can't reach the supposed second dialtone for the US base via +53 99. The state telco is marketing the "fija alternativa" service - ie a GSM-based fixed service - suggesting aged and interesting POTS equipment exists. Calling from here, it's evident that their international gateway is something not outrageously ancient, because it promptly returns an appropriate SS7 code for incorrect prefixes - eg +53 41 000000 returns the usual SIT+"the number you have dialled has not been recognised" from my local exchange. +53 xx 300000 returns a Cuban intercept - in Spanish then English - after about 5 seconds of delay, where XX is any of the 2-digit areacodes listed at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Telephone_numbers_in_Cuba. Sadly no signalling sounds are evident during the delays - I think I've tried all of them. I had a quick look for hotels in Panama and all the phone numbers I found were +507 6xxx xxxxx - ie mobiles. However, again, I'm hopeful that downstream of the international gateway is something elderly and interesting. +507 900 0000 sometimes gives an intercept - Spanish only - mentioning C&W Panama, again with a significant post-dial delay. +507 800 0000 gives my local telco's equipment engaged tone. +507 811 1111 was answered by a human +507 700 0000 is a different Spanish intercept, with a longer post-dial delay. +507 600 0000 or 500 0000 give my local telco's SIT+number not recognised intercept. +507 400 0000 is the same intercept-after-delay as 900 0000. +507 300 0000 is yet another Spanish intercept, with delay. +507 200 0000 has a very long delay then something times out any my local telco plays SIT+"sorry, there is a fault". +507 210 0000 has a long delay then the 900 0000 intercept +507 220 0000 rings, again after a delay, and is answered by some sort of automated service - in Spanish. No signalling sounds or evident, for me, in any of the above :-(

    So I just logged into binrev using this: it automatically generates, stores, and types passwords and looks like a usb-keyboard to your computer. That's a at89c5131 dev-board, this mcu is pretty much an 8051 with usb hardware. I'm probably going to keep touching up the code a little before I start printing boards.

    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

    If you dial extension 8411-8414 it will make the automated voice say "Lane ""1-4"" Most pharmacies dont have more than two lanes. So if youre there waiting for a script, dial ext 8413 to hear the voice on the loudspeaker say "lane 3" and watch the employees confusion. its hilarious.

    So all credit goes to Ramsaso; he pointed this out on the bridge last night. If you have a T-Mobile phone, try calling 712-451-0011. You should get a recording saying they now charge 1 cent a minute to call it, even if you're on their unlimited plan.

    I got this bag phone last month and was playing around with it to see if there was some tiny chance that it could connect to any network. As I suspected, there aren't any crumbling remains of AMPS networks anywhere near me. An interesting feature about this phone is there's an "Aux Out" which apparently was for sending faxes. Can't imagine lugging all of that around and plugging everything into the 12v jack in your car...

    Hey Samo! Good to hear from you again. Sorry to give you a wall of text here, there's really no concise way to explain this. In short, if you want to explore a long distance tandem, your best bet is to use a PIC code. There's a very simple trick that lets you push any destination you want directly into the tandem. We'll use Worldcom as an example, since it works from basically anywhere in the United States. Ready? Dial 101-0555. That's it; no zero, nothing. What you get next is a dialtone straight from the tandem. In the case of the ex-Worldcom tandems, it's not quite as fun as it could be; it wants an authorization code a-la 950 calling card. Here's an example of what you might find - http://thoughtphreak..._800223110.flac That's from a DMS (500, I think) owned by Integra, one of the local CLECs. Most long distance tandems (AT&T's aside - we'll get into that in a bit) don't like terminating toll-free calls, so you'll end up getting weird messages that you'll never be able to hear normally unless your switch loses it's mind. What's so great about this is you're completely free from the dialing restrictions of a normal end office. Want to dial an NXX starting with 1 or 0? A code starting with #? *? There's nothing standing in your way. Sprint in particular stuck a speed dial function on their tandem for some weird reason in the #xx range. #99+anything seems to be it's own little exception - it'll wait for a very large amount of digits before eventually giving you a generic CBCAE recording. This might indicate they're hiding something else here. There's one downside to this technique; if you're not subscribed to a carrier, they won't always let you play with the tandem. ex-MCI (0222) and Sprint are a couple good examples of this, but Sprint will give you a cool message as a consolation prize. Depending on your area, you might have better luck too. For example, the Qwest long distance network has a combination of DMS-250 and Sonus switches. Sonus isn't fond of letting people have fun on the phone, so you'll just get a generic error recording. If you encounter Global Crossing's Sonus switches, you won't even get a custom recording, you'll get the Sonus stock one. It's worth a laugh if you ever hear it. It's under three seconds, and was clearly made last minute by an engineer. Speaking of Global Crossing, like MCI/0222, they have a number of Alcatel DEX switches floating around. Dialing 101-0444 will just get you an error, though. The solution? 950-1044! What dialplan they're using is absolutely beyond me, though, so you're on your own there. There's suggestions - like 800-223-1104 (but only without a 1) going to an invalid code recording that suggest it might be for calling card use, but most things I can think to try just go to a CBCAD. And then we come to AT&T's 0288 network. I'll level with you, this is something I haven't figured out at all. Whenever I've been fortunate to get a dialtone back, it's always been from one of their 5ESS toll tandems. If there's such thing as a pushy phone switch, this is it. It'll let you know right away if it thinks you're doing something wrong. And putting a 1 in front of your destination number is wrong. I haven't had time or an opportunity to just sit down and investigate this, but what I do know is it's unique from a lot of other switches. For one, it'll terminate toll-free calls, but only on specific carriers. I believe just AT&T and Global Crossing toll-frees. Sometimes, it gets a little weirder - like, if you dial 800-244-1111, you'll get a recording from a McLeodUSA DMS. What this means I'm not sure exactly, but my guess is since the 5E toll tandems are responsible for lending a hand in connecting toll-frees, they'll store translations for those toll-frees. If it happens to have one - outdated or not, it'll just use that instead of doing an SMS-800 dip. Also of note on the AT&T tandems is the 600 NPA. Instead of just intercepting it like any invalid NPA, it'll pass this onto the 4ESS. This might indicate AT&T stashed something in there. As for your question - is SS7 relevant to phreaks? Absolutely. The very core practice of phreaking - introducing unorthodox input into the phone network - is fair game to everything, in or out of the speech channel. In the past, we've proved ISDN cause codes can trigger calls to take a different route, and it's been demonstrated that originating a ghost call (in short, an ANI fail on steroids - a call originated with no field other than the destination number) can be enough trouble that phone companies would probably scratch their heads as to whom they should send the bill to. It's understandable that figuring these things out is a challenge, but if anything, that should be a motivator. We're phone phreaks, we've got the resourcefulness to identify a piece of telco hardware by nothing more than vague sounds, and have fun in the process. This should be a reminder that there's always more to explore, and always another limit to break.

    Not to stir shit up, but I certainly agree that this forum shouldn't be a place where fake accounts come along and post allegations which result in people being terminated from their employment. If "unlucky" was indeed the victim of a violation of his privacy by an employee of trapcall/spoofcard then he should have contacted them. Also, if Lucky was fired without any evidence of a particular account being accessed by an employee, then he worked for a piece of shit company. If I were a mod, i would have deleted this thread because even if the allegations were true, there was not a shred of evidence provided, and I do not believe that this is a place for such things. perhaps if "unlucky" simply voiced a concern over the privacy expectations when dealing with a particular service, but he didn't - he made an accusation directed at one man, without anything to back it up. That being said, it's probably all true. ...seriously.

    SCO doesn't own UNIX, at least not yet. The actual "ownership" and copyright to UNIX is a very complicated issue. All this court decision did was "reverse material aspects" of the earlier verdict from 2007 that found Novell to be the rightful copyright owner. Now there's going to be yet another trial case to determine whether SCO does in fact own the copyright. I don't think anybody seriously gives a shit about System V UNIX, UnixWare or any of SCO's other crappy, outdated products. But a company like SCO, which has been in bankruptcy for over 2 years, has virtually no market share and appears to exist these days only for the purpose of suing other companies, might well gain legal ownership of the original System V UNIX code. In other words: they might gain a legal "leg to stand on" and cause more trouble for OSS creators and vendors. For years, SCO has been bitching that Linux infringes on a copyright for the original UNIX code that it assumes it holds. They have sued companies like IBM and Novell which produce Linux-based software and distribute Linux as an OEM OS. They have disseminated propaganda to Linux users, accusing them of copyright infringement and alleging they could be liable for damages simply by running Linux. They have sued their own (former) customers who switched from using their products to using Linux. SCO is also known to have received financial backing from other, far more powerful interests whose goal is to ruin the open source software movement by any means possible. At this point, SCO clearly has nothing to lose, and Microsoft doesn't have to dirty their hands or risk hurting their own public image by attacking open source developers in court. Microsoft can just sit back and bash the OSS movement in the press, allege IP infringements, negotiate cross-licensing agreements and provide financial support to companies like SCO to file anti-OSS suits. This may not be a potent threat to the very existence of Linux, but it could definitely harm Linux in the business market and lead to some very bad precedents regarding OSS and software copyright/patents in general. BTW, I'm not the one who voted down your post. It's an interesting bit of news on a case I haven't really followed in awhile. Thanks for posting it.

    The above is the 'offical' Postal Regulation for an IBI or Information Based Indicia. All this information is contained in the 2-D barcode to the upper left of a piece of metered mail. Look at some of your junk mail and it will be very clear what I mean. It's that box that looks like Lattera's avatar. The column that says barcode are all of the data items in that 2-D barcode that I'm talking about and the Human Readable is what you can decipher when you look at it...date, time, etc. The information is digitally signed so that when the Post Office reads the mail it can be fairly certain that it came from a particular licensed meter. What's crazy is that the meter internally communicates with 'itself' using an asymetric key system...public/private. That is the meter contains a postal security device which is tamper resistant (of course resistance is a relative term) that sends out commands to create and sign the indicia with all the signals being encrypted. Think of it like an HTTPS setup for internal communications or more appropriately like each command being digitally signed. Digital signatures use the public/private key system so this is closer to what is happening. The whole postage meter industry is so wacky. What I mean is that to actually attack the meter directly is incredibly hard but not impossible;however, there are far easier ways to 'hack' a meter. The meter itself and access thereof is fairly easy due to primitive security. If you have physical control of a meter and a system that can interface with it you can do pretty much whatever you want. But not to be too much of a worry wort...printing postage is printing money; stamps are a legal form of tender so if you play games with this stuff the penalties are insanely harsh because of that. I know some smartass is saying to himself, "Oh then I can use it to buy my groceries?" Not exactly...unclaimed stamps can and must be refunded by the post office. If you show up with a stamp that is legally yours or if you can 'somehow' prove that that is a stamp of yours the post office refunds the amount on the stamp. Of course it isn't an immediate refund. You can't just show up with a meter label for a hundred bucks and walk away with a c-note.

    Clearly the best was Windows 95. Don't you miss 3 reboots a day? As for XP, it was received pretty badly at first. Pre-SP1, XP was quite buggy. Also, for the time it was resource heavy, so a lot of people complained they couldn't run it on their current machines. I always got a chuckle when people bashed Vista, yet praised XP which had similar problems at the start. Of course people were willing to bite the bullet since the alternative was Windows 98 (or for the enlightened few, Windows 2000). Now, you have XP which works and is stable, so you can sit back and poo Vista all you want. I've also had no problems with Vista. If you have a fast enough machine, there's just not much to complain about. It works, what more do you want? As long as you're listing future OSs, why not list Ubuntu 9.10?

    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.

    So today, I was thinking about a few people I'd talked to recently - they told me they were into the idea of scanning, but because of their lack of free time/direction, it was hard to find space in their lives for this sort of thing. So I was thinking; should I build a thing with my Dialogic box that automatically dials ranges that look potentially fun, and let people review the recordings/manually make a description of what's actually on the line? There could be a rough level of signal detection using the DSP; enough to let you search by what you'd like to see most; whether it be recordings, VMBs, modems or dialtones or whatever, and let you select by region or operating company. Maybe some more powerful signal detection could be tacked on at a later point that could recognize certain manufacturers or switch types. This would be a pretty significant undertaking, so I'd like to know if anybody is interested before I actually do this. If you don't actively scan and would like to, would this help turn the tide for you a little?

    So I think I found a bridge that should work great; 510-940-0102. It's a ringout like all the rest, in an urban area so least cost routing won't be an issue, unused, and isn't going through any extra garbage. Barring any problems, this should be the last change.

    Yeah, there are USB isolators you can get from industrial suppliers that will protect your machine, too (used to prevent a catastrophic failure on a machine tool from blowing up the control system). I would probably just grab the cheapest throwaway laptop in the parts heap/thrift store/whatever and use it, if I were going to check these out. Another thing to look at is local geocaches. I've found a few on hikes that had USB drives in them.

    From a business/regulatory standpoint, I'm pretty sure that your local phone company and local operator is never your long distance company. Sure, you might have AT&T for your local phone and as your LD company, but the local and LD divisions are two separate companies. As such, when you dial 0 and get your local operator, they can only help you with calls inside your LATA. When you wanted something outside of your LATA, they connected you to MCI, which I'm guessing is your pre-subscribed LD carrier. You could check by dialing 1-700-555-4141. Your phone number is passed to the operator so they can easily know if you're trying to have them dial something out of your LATA. Only your area code is sent when you op-divert, but all the information necessary to identify you is available to the operator; it just doesn't get sent out.

    I'm new on the phreaking scene, so bear with me. Anyways, I was looking through the forum and saw a list of remaining 1AESS switches and noticed that there is one in my city. I dug deeper and found out that it happens to serve my POTS line (what were the odds!). In short I would like to know if there is anything special I can do with the beast.

    I hack in machine code all the time, but it's on one of these: It's easy to stop a system and mess with memory when it's designed for it. Many embedded systems support a ROM monitor that would allow such operation. Finding a way to jam bytes into memory and jump to them is a large part of remote exploitation.

    Nice! If you want to test it, 800-877-0282 is some kind of railroad system. Nothing that can be changed around, but lots of random train info, and stuff from weather stations. One last thing - if you see it leave random characters on your screen, that's not a problem with your modem; the thing on the distant end doesn't clear the borders it draws.

    I've wanted to build my own computer, from the ground up, ever since I found out about the Altair 8800 and the IMSAI 8080 of the 70's. Having found an 8085 CPU in an old AT&T PBX module, given to me by a teacher in middle school, I'd decided that would be the processor I'd use, when I eventually got around to building one. It's binary-compatible with the 8080, but requires only a single supply, a crystal, and an address latch to operate (the 8080 requires three supplies, a system controller IC, and a clock generator IC). I decided to get started with PIC microcontrollers, rather than going straight into CISC assembly, during high school, and found that the PIC was able to do what I needed for my projects with fewer parts and less power draw. It was also easy to get code to it, using a homemade parallel port programmer (I didn't have, or have access to, an EPROM eraser and burner at the time). Recently, though, I've found a few situations in which I'd like to have a microcontroller system with a true address and data bus, rather than implementing them through the larger PICs' output ports. I decided it was finally time to put together a basic 8085 system, since I'd now accumulated many 8085 CPUs, plenty of static RAM, and had acquired my own EPROM burner. This is the result: I built my prototype for the project on a Vero project board, which contains traces oriented for DIP ICs, as well as power and ground planes. I started off with just the 8085, a 74LS373 8-bit latch for the multiplexed address bus, a 2716 2k x 8 EPROM, a 2 MHz crystal and some decoupling capacitors. I later added the small, red TIL311 hex display, and a 74LS04 hex inverter to supply its internal latch with a signal of correct polarity. The EPROM was wired directly to the data and address buses, with its Chip Enable tied to the Read output of the CPU, since there were no other memory devices present. The TIL311 was wired directly to the low 4 bits of the data bus, with its noninverting Latch Enable fed from the CPU's inverted Write line, through one of the inverters in the 74LS04. I wrote a short assembly program to output 0x0A on output port #0 (any port would work, as the TIL311 responded to any write from the CPU). The program was assembled using GNUSim8085 (an open-source 8085 assembler and simulator), tested, then the hex dump was manually entered into my Intel iUP-201 PROM programmer, which has a keyboard for the manual entry of hex data into a PROM. After fixing two swapped address lines, the program worked fine, and displayed "A" on the TIL311. The next step was to add some RAM, for use as the 8085's stack, and for general storage of variables. I chose two uPD-2114 RAMs, which are 1k x 4 static RAMs -- you parallel two for 1k x 8. Since there was going to be real RAM and ROM present, it was necessary to come up with select logic to choose the EPROM or the RAM when memory accesses were performed, or the TIL311 when IO accesses happened. The 8085 provides IO/M, RD, and WR status lines, with M, RD, and WR being inverted (IO/M is one line, with 1 = IO access, and 0 = Memory access). The select logic was composed of inverters and NAND gates, from the 74LS04 and 74LS08 ICs. During this modification, I decided to add a PDSP-1881 8-character LED display for ASCII output. This was added to be activated on output ports 0-7 (one port for each character). Finally, I wrote an assembly to push "HELO" onto the system stack, then pop each character off and display it on an incremented output port. After correcting a timing error (the PSDP-1881 wasn't syncing with the 8085's clock), "HELO" appeared on the display after reset: Here's a shot of the point-to-point wiring on the back of the board. It's 30-gauge Kynar wrapping wire: I'll probably keep this board as-is for future embedded projects, but I plan on building a more complete system using an Augat wire-wrap board, since the point-to-point hand wiring is somewhat tedious. I've got an electric wire wrap gun for this purpose, and several different lengths of precut wrapping wire for this purpose. I'll probably add either an HD44780-based LCD or a serial UART next, with the intent of writing a small monitor program for the system. Eventually, I'd like to be able to load CP/M from ROM or perhaps floppy disk on the system. If anyone is interested, I can post scans of my schematics, notes, and assembly code for this project. I've also got a pile of extra components, if anyone would like to build an 8085 system similar to this one. If one were to use the same memory map, code should be interchangeable between systems. If you'd like to build something like this, but lack a PROM burner, I could post my schematic for a manual programmer I built several years ago: you manually set the address and data bits, then trigger a 555 timer to provide the programming voltage pulse to the EPROM without damaging it.

    No, sir, filer isn't me. He's a friend of mine, but not me. I don't have a problem with you as a person. I'm not taken to long replies, and I have no interest in trying to educate people online. I have better things to do with my time. Packetized voice certainly has some benefits. For example, flexible use of bandwidth. By not reserving unused bandwidth for possible voice calls, it can be used for more data traffic. (This isn't impossible in TDM-based networks; there's been a standard protocol for dynamically reusing unused voice channels on T1s for data.) The merits of TDM in my mind are also fairly clear. TDM (in the traditional sense of 64 kilobit voice circuits) guarantees a consistent delivery delay for the voice samples. VoIP, unless properly engineered, doesn't guarantee timely delivery, or for that matter delivery at all. Because the receiving end of a TDM connection doesn't have to de-jitter the voice stream, it can deliver the audio with a lower end-to-end delay. I'd be glad to discuss this with you offline; feel free to call me at 206-569-5478. See that is the kind of post that I appreciate. As to the VoIP issues check out what I said to ThoughPhreaker regarding his friends problems with dial-up over VoIP...I went over the engineering that you described. I still think you are filer but, if not, the fact that you are close friends means essentially the same thing for this conversation nor is it of any consequence. Anyway, the phone number thing is a little weird. I don't know what to make of it. I'm definitely not going to call you directly as that is what this forum is for...I'm a nice guy but if people want to discount me or make me out to be an ass I'm prepared to give it right back and I know my shit so flaming or, as I like to say, "Ohming" won't work on me. This has been one of the more interesting posts that I have had on this board. If you guy(s) have any 'inside' info on this proposal don't forget to share with the rest of us.

    This is a more complicated discussion than most people might realize. Right now, the only part of your phone system not digital is your home to the CO. Once it gets to the CO it bounces around throughout the phone network, essentially, just like the internet...only it forces circuit switching and uses non TCP/IP protocols on proprietary networks. Again, just to summarize what everyone knows, Circuit Switching is inefficient compared to packet switching, assuming the technology is there (hence why circuit switching was around for so long, originally people were the routers/switches so switching was 'costly'). Also, since broadband access has become a national priority which the public notice restates and since broadband internet access runs off of IP packets then it makes sense to coordinate telephony infrastructure improvements along the lines of, essentially, all modern communication- the IP packet. That being said, it doesn't mean integrating the telephony infrastructure with the internet or just using the internet- which is VoIP. It only means using the same TCP/IP protocol stack that the internet uses on their own proprietary, pre-existing, digital networks-boosting overall efficiency. Although they could connect the system directly to the web and integrate the telephone system to that of the web or use the internet for phone calls to supplement their proprietary networks this would be unwise. For them to use the internet to supplement their telephony would be a great idea from a redundancy perspective but only for that...an emergency option or something but not as a primary conduit. As far as security is concerned, this is just as insecure as the current setup. If the government is tapping your line from inside the phone company, say, as opposed to a direct tap at your location or whatever, they would just sniff your packets like any other network and reassemble them for the audio...just like what is happening at yours and the other guys end and just like you hack VoIP. From a hacker perspective, it would be just as difficult to connect into "their" world, past the CO. We still would be playing games with the path from the home to the CO. So I for one think, if done right this would be a good idea...at least what I have read so far. Apparently other posters have indicated that a lot of people are against this...so I guess I'll do some more research and find out why exactly.

    Why did you bring up that idea? That's what we need - You spoiled the fun. Joking........ Putting joking aside, you bring up a good point. I wonder how this 'leak' occurred and from whom? Wonder if that info is around any place to find, but the trouble with this notion is if they were good at covering their tracks they could've made it 'appear' to be a leak in case people came looking. In that case, I'll keep in mind what you brought up. I wished I could review source code but I'm a noob and can do very little with it unfortunately. Maybe someone good at code could volunteer to have a look at it and review it for everyone interested on binrev? Hoping.....

    I'd also like to mention that since the password database was stolen you should consider the password you used on these forums to be compromised. The passwords were hashed of course, but we all know hashes can be reversed. If you use this password anywhere else, change it as soon as possible. I'm not sure how Invision hashes passwords and if rainbow tables will be able to break them, but it's safer to assume they're all compromised.

    Why though? Being a nuisance and preventing communication can be just as useful of a tool for "cyber-warfare" as more 'tactical strikes' with a much lower technical barrier. Also, exploits can be patched (in a perfect world, they would be patched) and then lose their value to the attacker, but a DDoS can be a right bitch to deal with. In my opinion (and really only there), this is the most likely option. Leaving aside "the crackpot conspiracy theories", there is irrefutable evidence that the US government has, at least, planned false-flag activities in the past to get the public support behind policies it is trying to enact. Now, take this with a grain of salt as I see no real evidence to support this, but it seems as likely as most of the other theories being tossed around.

    .........what? Basically, the launch os of Android (Not Cupcake) had a missed typed redirect in the code, where anything typed on the G1 would be echoed to a bash session's stdin. So typing reboot would reboot, typing ls would list the current directory, typing sshd would start a sshd session, all with root privileges. It was an (very stupid) exploit that allowed full access to the linux underpinnings of Android on the G1, even allowing people to install a full version of Debian. Oh! Thanks XD

    I don't know why people in this community still use these fraudulent terms, but file-sharing is not piracy, and it certainly isn't stealing. If a friend gives me an old book or cd or dvd, is that stealing? Obviously not. Those who continue to use these terms are defending companies who rip you off, and rip off the artist. Anyway, we live in a new world and if you stick to the old ways, you're a dinosaur. File sharing will never stop. If everyone just faced this economic reality, then progress can be made. To continue arguing over the morality of it is fucking stupid. Everyone has different morals. If one were a communist, they would have a different moral stance on this than an anarchist, or someone who thinks they believe in capitalism but actually just likes to get ripped off. The old business model is dead. Make a new one or die with it.
