MapQuest: Maps: Area Code
Topic: Miscellaneous 11:38 pm EST, Dec  4, 2002

Hey all you phone phreaks, here's a great way to track down the location of central offices. Just punch in the area code and exchange and get a map. (OK, it may be off by a block or two.)

Y2K Bug Bites 105 Year Old
Topic: Technology 7:58 pm EST, Nov 14, 2002

Kinda scary that Norway hasn't fixed "Y2K" problems yet: "A 105 year old woman was offered a place in a Norwegian kindergarten after a millennium bug knocked a century off her age. "When our list showed she was born in '94' we just assumed it was 1994 rather than 1894," Olga Moerk, in charge of a project offering free day-care to five-year-olds in central Oslo, said on Friday." A social worker visited the old people's home where the woman lives after getting no reply to the free playschool offer.

A comprehensive collection of textfiles from BBS's. Thanks to Jason Scott for preserving this piece of computer history.


11/4/02 - Back from PhreakNIC
Topic: Miscellaneous 8:58 pm EST, Nov  4, 2002

I got back home from Nashville late last night and now I have to tell everyone about it! In case you didn't already know, I went to the PhreakNIC hacker convention. There were some great talks and plenty of computer stuff to look at, but the best part was the people. I met the following Meme Streams members: Decius (the founder of Meme Streams), Dolemite (who led PhreakNIC this year), JonnyX (the founder of PhreakNIC), Maverick, Nanochick, NotLarry, Rattle, and Virgil. I'm sure I met more users and didn't even realize it. Decius' talk on Meme Streams was well received, so the system should see more users in the near future. Jason Scott of spoke about the history of phreaking on Friday night. I participated in Dolemite's hacker hookup and got turned down by the BSD chick from Her questions were really hard. I don't really feel any sense of loss because whe was rather bitter and expected way too much from Dolemite's silly little version of the dating game. Sara made a great breakfast Saturday morning. (That girl can cook!) HugMe had some great insight on how to protect your wireless network from all those wardriving punks. The DashPC cars were truly wonderful. I was amazed at the clean installation and seamless integration of the Jetta. The other car looked like it was done more for show. It wasn't as practical, but it was still cool and had loads of performance. Unfortunately, Laughing Boy's 2.5 watt laser caught on fire, the collection to rebuild his laser was stolen, his computer was stolen, and he got a flat tire on the way home. :-( Over all, I had a great time.
Thanks to everyone who gave their time, money, and hard work to make this great convention come together.

Nobody Runs for Town's Council
Topic: Society 10:41 pm EDT, Oct 12, 2002

In the small town of Guys, it certainly wasn't politics as usual.

In Saturday's alderman election, voters were faced with blank ballots because no candidate filed the paperwork in time. Two at-large alderman seats were filled with write-in candidates.

"Montana's Libertarian candidate for Senate has turned blue from drinking a silver solution that he believed would protect him from disease.
Stan Jones,a 63-year-old business consultant and part-time college instructor, said he started taking colloidal silver in 1999 for fear that Y2K disruptions might lead to a shortage of antibiotics. "

Hmmm...would you elect this guy to the Senate? I think not. - Nano - Candidate turned himself blue - Oct. 1, 2002 - Internet Like Burning.

This wonderfully messed up site is a great place to waste some time. Take an online quiz, read another hilarious article and stare in amazement at the latest science project. It's "internet like burning" - Internet Like Burning.

128th time: Angry drunk in tank, again / Chronic drinker soaks up police, hospital resources
Topic: Current Events 11:44 pm EDT, Oct  7, 2002

Paul Sanchez, the public drunk who had been picked up a dizzying 124 times in San Francisco the last time we counted, is back in jail again -- having clocked up another four arrests for some form of public drunkenness.

Sanchez now resides in the medical wing of the County Jail, doing a 130- day stretch for resisting arrest after throwing an empty vodka bottle at a cop. The cop had revived him while Sanchez lay passed out in a doorway near Castro and Market.

Sanchez is a legend among the city's beat cops and paramedics -- and he's become Exhibit A for the growing problems caused by the city's street people.
