How to Build a “Phone Phreak” Box!

Not too long ago, somebody mailed me a package containing the June 1972 issue of Ramparts magazine. (Click here to see that video.)

Time travel? No big whoop.

I love how accepting this old man is of my time travel excuse for his car ding. If you like the car ding concept, the end of the video has links to our other 738 car ding calls. Other car dings are located at phonelosers.org/ding/ but that page is already...

TheN’s Voice Bridge

Some jerk named TheN has created a voice bridge to compete with the PLA’s TinyChat room. The phone number to reach it is 253-397-1819. As if people ever use phones anymore. Get with the times, TheN! It’s all about flash-based chat rooms that crash your browser and slow down your...
