    I wish I could entertain myself like this.

    I thought I remembered that it was possible to dial numbers over your phone line by making the correct noises into the receiver.

    I might be imagining that.


    No I don't mean using a voice app command.

    I mean that the noises you make over the line can cause the machine at the other end to interpret it as a signal to do something.

    It used to be possible, early hacking involved basically using a toy whistle to create the dial up tones.
    Called "phreaking", and one of the earliest hackers was called "Captain Crunch" because the whistle came from a cereal box.

    At one time it was possible (as late as radial dial telephones) to place a call by rapidly tapping out the numbers on the hook switch, with brief pause between numbers. (eg. ===== ===== ===== = == = ==, for 555-1212)

    Not related to phreaking (sorry), but here is what I'm having:

    "Ginger Sea Dog"

    2 ounces Rum
    6 ounces Ginger Beer
    Angostura Bitters
    Lime Wedge
    Lemon Wedge

    First time I've drank in awhile. Figured I'd post it ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Just don't get knocked the fuck out wallflower. You might just end up on pills.

    Trying to get a look at Neowise. Not sure this shitty state is the best viewing point for such a thing since this morning turned up with no luck even though the software said it was in the sky. Hoping the dusk cycle will be better. Apparently July 22nd is the peak so we have plenty of time assuming it does not burn up suddenly.

    With all the stuff currently going on, I've noticed that people are often really bad at advocating for themselves. Social media really magnifies this too.

    It's given me a new appreciation of lawyers.

    I do, in fact, have no more questions.

    /edit:

    Ok, I have more questions about this. Did this comic book artist actually trace a fucking LEGO model? And didn't even erase the studs?

    If these games get remade, I'm not sure how much I'd want the graphics to change. There's just something about shitty flat textures and no atmospheric effects that has so much charm. Focus on adding/improving the gameplay and features.
