Call this number and listen for a few seconds until the end of the outgoing greeting. You can use it as another ANI number for you jr. skulkers who need a way to identify the phone number you are currently calling from. In our 3/14/00 issue, WebSkulker mentioned that he created his own ANI number by calling a spammer's 800 number over and over again. After a while, it started playing a threatening message, including speaking our phone number to scare us into not calling it again. The above number is even better: it's another voice mail of a spammer, but this one speaks your phone number every time, right before the beep tone, to scare you into not calling it too often. WebSkulker suggests that every one of you call the number to hear your ANI, and leave a message thanking them for this service. You might also call from a payphone to hear it's ANI, although that would be a shame because it would cost the spammer the payphone surcharge each time you call.
Here are a couple of more great ads to watch in streaming QuickTime format. WebSkulker should have published the first one last Friday because it relates to April Fool's Day. The second one is by someone who has precisely the same attitude about iMac's that WebSkulker and his cat have.
WebSkulker has mentioned this site a couple of times because of their claim to provide free DSL service in some cities in return for your running a "view bar" that will take over part of your screen to show ads, and the right to track your web skulking habits. WebSkulker has a strong memory that FreeDSL used to claim that their free lines would be high-speed lines that would be typical of the paid DSL lines in an area. They recently sent email and posted on their web site a fundamental change: their free DSL service will only be at a speed of 144 Kbps, which is barely faster than an ISDN line and far, far slower than any commercial DSL line (assuming you are close enough to your central office). But there will be an upgrade available to higher speeds if you want to pay for it!
On this page:
WebSkulker finds it amazing that a DSL line of 144 Kbps, which is mathematically less than three times faster than 56 Kbps, will access the Internet at up to 50 times faster than dialup. WebSkulker suspects that this wording is left over from when they used to claim that their DSL lines would be full speed.
WebSkulker isn't all that much into MP3's so he hasn't tried many CD ripping or MP3 utilities, but he knows that most of you jr. skulkers like this sort of thing so he will pass along three sites. The first was suggested by Jr. Skulker Chris Gray, the second by Tim Brewer, and the third was in a press release that we received.
Audio Copy has an amazing set of features. Besides it's high quality
at ripping audio from CD's, it also contains a sound editor with
automatic removal of clicks and pops and other noise reductions, and
lookups into the CDDB
database. The documentation is sparse, so a fan set
up a site with more detailed instructions:
Jr. Skulker 785sicc recommended this site. "A general telephone news site. it has A LOT of news. LOTS and LOTS of news. Stuff that doesn't even matter. LOTS of it."
WebSkulker has been an atheist since he was old enough to think about such things, but as of tonight, he believes and it took a web site to do it! The power of Jesus is clear and undeniable: go there and type in the URL of any other page, such as www.webskulker.com, and see what He can do.
