  1. Still, this is a very interesting idea. I didn't realize strcmp worked that way.
  2. No dice in Pittsburgh.
  3. The static is the telephone hybrid (the device that connects the studio equipment to the telephone line) performing echo cancellation. I don't really have any information about what exactly is going on, but it's probably sending out noise and measuring what is reflected back, and making the necessary adjustments to deliver echo-free audio to the studio. In an analog domain, that is deemed to be necessary. With VOIP, it isn't. So, if you hear the static, you know they aren't using VOIP.
  4. The dialtone on 0028 must be coming from your switch. When I call it, I get dropped to an "if you'd like to make a call...." recording on my switch.
  5. I'm not sure if anyone has checked yet, but I went to the NANPA website and 9017 is unassigned. At least 0110 is reserved for "Tandem Access for Database Query". From my Verizon EWSD line, I can't get anything to complete through 101-9017. I'll try on my work Verizon DMS-100 Centrex line on Monday.
  6. I have one of these too. I thought I had the documentation but I can't locate it. Works like a champ. Mine was similarly clean inside - that cover really does its job.
  7. No shit? This hard to believe! Thanks for sharing.
  8. I was planning on visiting for about 10 years. I kept waiting for a "good opportunity" to go. Finally I just realized a "good opportunity" was probably never going to come. So I just booked plane tickets and went. Don't put it off for so long like I did. The museum could burn down for all we know (although I hope that never happens!). Get there right when they open and stay all day. You'll be glad you did On a related note, Thoughtphreaker, we should try to go to the museum again sometime
  9. I'm glad you got it working Thanks for sharing what you had to do to make it work!
  10. I almost didn't make the connection without all of the hiss! Definitely sounds like the same person to me. This is how I first came to know that numbers station:
  11. That would be awesome if they can do it! Keep us posted.
  12. I'm not so sure you can get service from Centurylink. For starters, I tried a few Elyria addresses on their website and none of them said service was available. Also, those two switches you mentioned are in different ratecenters. Usually one company can give you an FX line from one of THEIR other CO's without an issue. But, between companies, in different ratecenters, I'm not so sure. I bet they could definitely deliver you a dialtone via a T1 circuit, but that would definitely be way outside of your price point. In short, it doesn't hurt to try, so you should still give them a call. Do you have DSL from Windstream? As crazy as it sounds, at least with Verizon out here, things are cheaper if you bundle phone with DSL than just getting a phone line. You might want to check into that.
  13. I get a "the service you're trying to use is not available on this line" recording from my EWSD when I dial 67 and wait. When I dial 70 and wait, I get the "if you'd like to place a call..." recording
  14. You should be able to dial international freephone lines through a CIC like 101-0288, unless you've blocked access to those.
  15. I asked Evan about the missing Z tapes. Those were given to Mark Bernay but were not recorded by Mark or Evan. He can't remember off the top of his head who contributed them. Evan wasn't aware that the tape was only posted temporarily. He has some other material in addition to the -part-1 file on Thoughtphreaker's server. He wants to extract the stuff from those files that he doesn't already have in higher quality and get it out. If that doesn't happen relatively soon, remind me!
