Posted: 12 Days 3 Hours ago by: Andy BurnsSo take a photo of it then ;-)
Posted: 12 Days 3 Hours ago by: WoodyNo, not that. Council wi-fi is usually a commercial access point comprising a slim(ish) panel with two stalks upwards and two matching downwards, as in this:- https://tinyurl.com/yc7sxaf6 I have a suspicion that these might be cell en

Posted: 15 Days 20 Hours ago by: WoodyI have noticed of late a profusion of additions - in many cases of the top of lampposts or on lamppost poles alone. It consists of a white(ish) box maybe 12-15" square and 6-8in thick with a white (co-linear?) antenna perhaps 3ft or so l
Posted: 21 Days ago by: Bob EagerThis one is dated 1992, I bought it then, and have used it daily ever since. The onw downstairs was bought by me in 1989, also used daily! My wife's Model M also dates back to 1989.
Posted: 21 Days ago by: MBI don't know if it is an apochrypal story but a friend knows someone who provided telecom services for various organisations including telephone connections to service personnel away from home. He says that a RN vessel got a double g

Posted: 21 Days 17 Hours ago by: Bob EagerI am using a 1391406 right now. Every PC I use has a Model M on it.
Posted: 21 Days 17 Hours ago by: Julian MacasseyI trolled one caller from the "Windows Department for about haf an hour. Finally he screamed "Motherfucker!" and hung up.
Posted: 21 Days 18 Hours ago by: Marco MoockMay keyboard IBM Model M 1391403 doesn't have a Windows key. May Thinkpad X40 also doesn't have one.
Posted: 21 Days 21 Hours ago by: ScottMy brother got the one about the accident that was not his fault. He explained there was an accident last week. They were running late for a dinner appointment and there was a red light but because they were running late they just kept
Posted: 21 Days 21 Hours ago by: ScottI had a variant on that. I got a call about double glazing. She asked how old my windows were. I asked her which version. She said it was the windows in the house. I said I knew that she was talking about my home PC not the office P
Posted: 21 Days 22 Hours ago by: Woody+1 I had a call from 'BT' one day to say that I was 'causing problems on the Internet' but not to worry as they would stay on line with me until it was resolved. This was Kevin with a <very> heavy Asian accent and clearly English was
Posted: 21 Days 23 Hours ago by: Marco MoockMy strategy against scam/advert calls is annoying this people by playing with them. Cooperate with them (don't really do it, just tell them) and steal their time. They may freak out sometimes, but they never called me again.
Posted: 23 Days ago by: Roger MillsI don't know about the BT phones which incorporate trueCall technology but, on my trueCall stand-alone device, the Star and Zap (white & black) lists can be quite flexible, and can include wildcards. For example, you could allow all cal

Posted: 23 Days 6 Hours ago by: Mark CarverBut that relies on a whitelist of approved numbers ? The whitelist can never be exhaustive. For instance, my mother has Sainsbury's home deliveries. Often the driver will ring to say he's running late or early. That's from the driver
Posted: 24 Days 19 Hours ago by: WoodyA nuisance call blocking phone is a good option. The phone doesn't even ring if the caller doesn't comply. Two types: those done by Panasonic are effective against automated calls as they ask for digit 1 to be pressed to continue. The c
Posted: 24 Days 20 Hours ago by: Mark CarverMy mother reported to me she was woken up at 3am by a series of scam calls this week. I checked her phone's call log, and she was right. Calls at 02:50, 03:00, 03:08, and another couple at 07:07 and 07:14hrs All of them had CLID startin
