  1. 40 is the new 21, right? Then how come it feels like 100?

      Er, did I say months? I meant weeks. Heh. I'm not *that* old ;P

      What? 25? mid-20's should be the best times of your life. Young enough to be able to screw up. Old enough to drink and make some money.

      I <3 you guys. Heh.

  2. The info I got was from a few different sites, because I decided to start doing the research. Was actually planning on doing some more, to see if there's a way around the 0 restrictions. I don't think I have international dialing on my POTS line, or I'd be peeking at freephone numbers to explore networks. I think the key would be finding some sort of non-zero dialable number that gets international... A tie-line for an international company that gets back to the States (with a 9-line or equivalent)... Not sure.
  3. I think that it might have something to do with the switching it's going through, as it's really trying to reach out internationally; there are a lot of country codes that begin with 5, several being in South America... So I'm thinking that might be where you went as opposed to Spain. If you were wanting to try to 'route' the call through the NANP international trunks back to the States (can't tell if that was your original intent or not), you could try 011 + 1 + your number (as the country code 1 hits the NANP). If you actually wanted to go THROUGH international trunkage... I think you'd have to go 011 + a country code + however that country dials international back to the States... So: 011 + 44 + 00 + 1 + number for taking a call US to UK back to the US. Not sure if that'd work, though, because I don't think an international call to the UK can have the destination number start with a 0 (which this one technically would).
  4. Oh, I certainly do still! I get the notifications of posts, and I'll plug an interesting number or three into the cell if I have a moment. My lack of any posting (and calls) lately is due to a re-enrollment into school, a new work project, and the continuing adventures of being a husband / father. Lucky me... Heh.
  5. I think all of the grunt work of 'translating' rotary / dial pulse to MF (or whatever TF digital channel crap is used in CCIS / SS7) to send via VoIP would be done within the adapter box. What it does with the data that comes out of the box... Well, this is purely guesswork... But I'd think that whoever your ISP is has an exchange (or several) reserved at a switch (which may or may not be local), that's basically a forwarding address. VoIP traffic acts like Internet traffic til it gets to the switch, the switch recognizes is as 'telco' data, shunts it to the proper connector for the phone number, and then shunts it to the data pipe that feeds your house. Please by all means correct me if I'm wrong, you other experts.
  6. I know there was 3 tapes that Evan had in total: 1 he recorded from Long Island, one Ben did local in LA, and I think one from Barry in Baltimore. Then the follow-up he did about the Z jingle, but that was more "gee-whiz" stuff.
  7. I want to say I saw that DMSes supported RP in some way, shape, or form. I'm trying to remember where, and if I can find it again, I'll post it.
  8. So NXX-#NXX in my particular exchange... All of the numbers went to my local switch's CBCAD. Makes me wonder if they were active at some point. There's another exchange on my switch. Tried that too. Same results. Sooooo... Who knows. Heh.
  9. http://afiler.com/switches/siemens/esc/ That first line has to be a shout-out to Evan Doorbell...
  10. Oddly enough, I've had my line do both, but this was with me toying with the flash lengths. So it's one of those thing TBD. That's a cool little sound... And inband signalling implies phreakability, somehow someway. Heh. Never late to the party. Glad you're chiming in! Not sure. I'm surrounded by Frontier, CenturyTel, more Windstream, and AT&T Ohio. So I'm not sure -what- standard would be followed. I know that my particular area -was- a former Alltel territory, so... More below. I might try that with my local switch, just to see. Nice! Gives me a direction. Thanks so much for that! I'm definitely in former Alltel territory, so I might go sign-scouting, just to see what's what, and see if I can catch anything.
  11. Please tell me it still does this in some obscure part of the system...
  12. Not sure how often that one's updated. Still lists 81 1AESS switches on the front page for example, but it doesn't look like 81 when you click it. Also still lists White Plains (WHPLNYWP08T) as a #5 XBar with ETS. Heh.
  13. Of course it's not, because that'd be too simple for AT&T to do. Heh.
  14. So is it basically a 950-xxxx, and it gives you a second dial tone to dial off of (if they're not restricted)? Yeah, it's not something I intend on messing with much. It was more of a 'gee-whiz' thing I found. I was disappointed that the DISAs just wouldn't stack by themselves... But I think I might just start poking around at the local switches, keep in mind the loop detection, and see what I can find. The degradation with what I was doing wasn't massive, but it was enough to tell me I was doing things. Hmmm... Now I hadn't thought of the 3-way idea. It might do for a 'quick and dirty til I can get something better' idea... Just have to see if my Windstream line is set for 3-way calling. I don't -think- it is, but I got some indications when I was doing some testing with flashing that it might be. To be determined. I'll accept the goofs I make. It's more research in my cap, so I can refine my techniques. Plus, it may or may not have been a DA call... I have to look at the bill again. Heh. The thing I have to figure out is how Windstream counts their time, since I'm on a 100-minute LD plan. From the bill, it was hard to tell if it was timed on supe, or timed on placing the call... Because I swear some numbers -didn't- supe, but I still got a 1 minute ding on them. So we'll see.
  15. While this is awesome, I couldn't get it to do much. Does this guy have a phone directory, so I know how to dial on the network?
