  1. Did I miss something? Has the server changed or is it offline permanently? Looks like it's been down for a few weeks now.
  2. This is what it's all about http://otp22.com/index.php?title=Main_Page
  3. I was searching the VHF low band on my PRO-39 scanner (R.I.P.) early one summer morning for some skip when I encountered an audio feed of an Australian announcer giving the play-by-play of a horse race. I did some research and found the race was indeed in Australia! This was in the mid 1990s and I was using a simple dipole cut to length for that band (well, 46 mHz....wonder what that was for).
  4. Have you tried Jason Scott? He would be one of the most likely to have have some leads.
  5. Amen! Oh, but it's from Europe so it's got to be better than anything we've ever tasted, even if it tastes like camel piss.
  6. It will optional in the same sense that paying Federal Income Tax is voluntary. Mandatory volunteerism!
  7. I've done this before from Opera Mobile 10. I'm pretty sure this is how I did it: 1) In Opera Mobile, load about:config in the address bar. 2) Scroll down and open the Proxy section. 3) In the HTTP Server field, enter "" 4) Scroll down a little further and make sure the check the "Use HTTP" box. 5) Be sure to scroll down and click on Save. You should maybe consider trying out Token2Shell Mobile. It's much more stable, finger friendly, and full of more features than PocketPutty.
  8. Damn, where are you finding all these good deals? Around here people are selling crusty old 23 channel CBs for $100+. BTW, that PRO-164 has Signal Stalker, which would be my main reason for wanting one.
  9. So....is the new BinRev Radio another show that's now stalled and been put on the back burner? There hasn't been a new show in a while. Also, it doesn't seem that any of the changes Stankdawg talked about have yet happened with the site? Is there still a "merger" of sorts coming with that other security site/forum?
  10. Darn. It was a useful tool, especially once I registered on of my numbers as a business. Now the question is how long until Google begins limiting and/or charging for outgoing calls on Google Voice? I see a repeat of what happened with a lot of internet sites and services once they moved from the 90s into the 2000s -- they either began charging for their previously free services, or they shut down altogether.
  11. This reminds me of yesterday, I stopped by a Taco Bell and went through the drive through. There was a "black screen of death" on the order screen, mentioning something about a 333MHz Celeron CPU and an invalid boot disk. Doesn't Verifone make the new touch-screen ordering equipment for Taco Bell? Hmm...it would figure.
  12. You're right, you're not just imagining it. I recall a handful of commercials back in the day that were advertising 855 toll free numbers.
  13. First there was wardialing, then came wardriving, and now in 2010 there will be warcharging. People will be sitting around with banks of batteries hooked up to Cantennas and WiFi parabolic reflectors, or walking/driving through the city to leech free electricity. Well, we can always dream!
  14. Yes....and yes.... LOL
  15. Who hasn't always wanted to know how they can "disguise" themselves by making a fake rash?
  16. I've known a few people who worked at Verifone, and from what they tell me nearly all technical docs were available to anyone there who wanted to grab it and make heads or tails out of it. I heard they were running their software/hardware as cheaply as they could then charging the end user ridiculous amounts for their junk. It wouldn't surprise me to find many vulnerabilities and unencrypted, weak points in their systems! Also, I believe a couple years ago they did some restructuring in the support dept. which upset a lot of old timers who knew their stuff. By "old timers", this means anyone there for more than a few years due to such high turnover! So I'm surprised it's taken this long to get the info out there.
  17. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I could go about setting up a dumb terminal on Windows XP, connected via serial port? Here's what I'm after -- I found my old (1994?) Sharp Zaurus ZR-3000 organizer. It doesn't even have a modem, but what it does have is a serial cable and terminal application (supports VT100 and tty). I figured at least it might be neat to run it as a terminal where I can connect via SSH to some other boxes. Ideally I would like to see if I could redirect the input/output of putty to the serial port, but I have not had any luck with that thus far. I have redirected some simple output to the serial port -- i.e. "echo hello world > com1" but it's showing up like extended ASCII and other characters on the Zaurus screen. Does anyone have any suggestions how I could properly interface this to a Windows machine? Or maybe other suggestions as to what I could use this for. It does have and IRda port I might be able to make use of but I still don't see it being practical to use for anything more than a terminal.
  18. Welcome back! I don't recognize most of the handles on this board anymore.
  19. So it's basically an overpriced, oversized iPhone. Brilliant.
  20. I have a really weird situation I've never run into before. There is a specific PC on my LAN that is causing the router to kill all LAN traffic when it boots. It doesn't happen all the time, but has been happening more frequently than in the past. And it happens within 5 seconds of this system booting -- before the OS (Win XP) begins loading or any drivers are loaded! When it happens I can still connect through the router via WiFi, but all ethernet ports are essentially dead until I reboot the router. Is there some kind of WOL signal the network card could be sending on bootup that causes the router to kill other connections? Does anyone have any suggestions, or has anyone encountered anything similar before? BTW, the router is a Linksys WRTP54G.
  21. Is anyone aware if there is some kind of massive DDOS against majors sites underway? Or perhaps backbone traffic sharing disputes like the Level3 thing from a few years ago? I've done some searching but haven't found anything conclusive. I have been having major slowdown and even timeouts with Google, Youtube, etc. servers over the last several days. Some other people I know are also experiencing this problem, and they are in different geographical locations and using different providers. Anyone know what's up?
  22. Mounting to a folder is useful for file sharing purposes when it is a portable drive. Depending upon how often you plug in additional USB devices, when you unplug/plug back in the portable drive, it could be assigned a different drive letter each time. By mounting it to a folder and sharing that folder, you can ensure the share will be accessible over the network regardless of what drive letter is assigned to the drive.
  23. Remember, folks, you should assume all calls to/from Google Voice are being recorded and archived. It is Google, after all....! "DO NO EVIL" Not that all other calls outside of Google Voice aren't being archived and monitored. I suppose it's a moot point.
  24. I've encountered a few of these "ENTER" voice prompts in the past. I'll have to check my records and see if any of them are still active. One of my favorite numbers was for a low power AM transmitter that broadcast information on historical landmarks of the area. The system allowed you to completely change the recordings it played on a loop. Unfortunately I think it's no longer active. :cry:
  25. Let's see... some of my first phreaking experiences (late 1994/early 1995) involved scanning a local college's PBX system for interesting extensions, VMBs I could attain, and various hidden gems. Once I had mapped out the owners of nearly all the extensions, I enjoyed playing ring-around-the-rosie with some of the professors' boxes. The VMB software had a feature enabled that would allow any incoming messages to automatically be copied to someone else. So I would enable forwarding and chain multiple boxes together so that in the end several professors were receiving each others messages! I enjoyed a good laugh when I learned the outcome of my experiments from someone on the inside! I also recall around the same time finding the number to a Proctor Test system in my NPA and playing with that for hours on end for kicks.
