<Yoda> I left mtr doing a traceroute on 184.108.40.206, for about 3 months. in an old screen session....
<Yoda> I found it just 3 days ago, closed it. and thought... oops.
<Yoda> and just today.. I got in the post box...
<Yoda> two raging letters from verizon...
<Yoda> one is from management saying someting to the effect of: Cease and Desist your DDoSing. Please.
<Yoda> the other reads: Hi I'm a sysadmin and I'm pissed off at you because you made me lose a bet.
<Yoda> <We used to place bets on when you would go offline>

<SightUnseen> I thought of using a magnetron to generate an 802.11 carrier wave, but gave up after I realized how much voltage I'd need for the modulator.
<SightUnseen> Something like 4kV at 16A, in a vacuum.
<SightUnseen> I'd need a decommissioned krytron; and that's put me on a list with terrorists.
<Yoda> they got normal wifi to do a LOS link of about 200miles or so...
<SightUnseen> Yoda: At 1.2kW I could send wifi (literally) to the nearest star.
<SightUnseen> And have every spectrum watcher from here to alpha centauri wanting me in jail.

<Pryoidain> So I had another scammer call today.
<asaph> Haven't they like..learned to avoid your number?
<Pryoidain> They have, but this was at my branch, and it was originally regarding one of my employees.
<Pryoidain> Dude calls with a New york phone number. Weird, since, well, we have branches in new york. Asks for my CSR, who legitimately is not in. I tell him this, he tells me he's calling from the California State Attorney general office, and its urgent she call him back.
<Pryoidain> Anyways, I duckduckgo the number he gives me, its a motherfucking scam artist calling MY branch to harrass one of MY employees. And its a tuesday, so its slow. But just to be sure, I devised a test to make sure.
<Pryoidain> He calls back, and I talk to him for a bit, then ask him who the state attorney general for CA is. he gets it wrong. I point this out, and he actually asks "WELL..What office did you call, Because we're in Los Angeles, not Sacramento." I was like "...DUDE. STATE attorney general. It doesn't change based on city. And you're calling me from new york. Try again on a california area code.
<Pryoidain> Motherfucker hangs up and calls back from a california area code. So I keep pelting him with questions and goading him on. Finally I decide I'm going to sell him one of our loan products, which pissed him the fuck off. Then an actual customer comes in, so I tell him politely I will call him back, and hang up.
<Pryoidain> Now, I dunno what software this guy is using, but it is AWESOME. He called me 100 times in 5 minutes from 100 different phone numbers, I know, because I was bored enough to go through and compare them all.
<Pryoidain> So after the customer had left, I call back (Yes I called him) and just said "...You Rang?" and it sounded like the headset was thrown and it clicked off.
<asaph> So it was done right?
<Pryoidain> I -THOUGHT- so. But I was wrong. He did some research on my company and got the area code of where our corporate headquarters is based, and starts calling from there, except all calls to us from corporate pop up on an internal call line. So then I devised my plan.
<cjk> Oh this will be good.
<Pryoidain> Thick accented man, so I check my scammer phone record (I log all the numbers in the event I ever got a chance to work with a telephone switch board) and I plug them all in to speed dial. He calls back, I hit another line, hit the speed dial, mute my headset, and punch confrence. it sounds like a seemless line transfer to him.
<Pryoidain> He is now connected to another scammer. What proceeded was the funniest fucking 20 phone calls of my life.
<Pryoidain> Anyways, he stops calling after that.
<asaph> oh phew.
<Pryoidain> nonono, I'm not done yet.
<Pryoidain> I wait until we're closing and call him. He doesn't answer. I just wanted to wish him a good night. So I close, and go next door to sprint, and pick up one of the demo phones, and call him. He answers.
<Pryoidain> "Alvin! (yes, he picked that as his name, dunno why) You missed my call from work. I just wanted to wish you a good night! I'll call you tomorrow."
<Pryoidain> he made a noise somewhere between a scream and a cry, and just dejectedly said "Why...why are you doing this?"
<Pryoidain> "Because I want to be your friend alvin. The internet says terrible things about you, but I think they're wrong. I'll call you tomorrow!"
<Pryoidain> "..please don't..you..you are a terrible man."
<Pryoidain> "Night Alvin!"Comment: 1-951-708-0369 Is the number, if anyone was interested.

<@fsxxvii> What happened to you? I haven't seen you in here in a week
<@rd700nx> you know how a week ago we upgraded our TV/internet?
<@rd700nx> When you turn the big TV on, it runs a slide show of everything in the public folders of every Windows box connected to our router. I had NO FUCKING IDEA ABOUT THIS
<@rd700nx> I've been using the Windows public folder on my work computer to keep things in because I have two computers now, it was easy to run things between them without using a flash drive (you know I'm too lazy to get up and walk from one end of the room to the oher)

<allejo> the teacher is calling on people to translate fruits and shit
<allejo> he asks the class to translate watermelon and calls on the only black kid in the class who wasn't even raising his hand
