We must fight spam for the same reason we fight crime: not because we are naive enough to believe that we will ever stamp it out, but because we do not want the kind of world that results when no one stands against crime. - Geoffrey Welsh

Well, here we go again: I was doing Spring cleaning yesterday, and I came across a couple of treasures that I had thought were lost. In that spirit, I'm repeating my 2009 request for information: does anyone know of any old Teletype machines that are being stored/sold/given away? It doesn't matter what model: 14, 15, 19, 28, whatever: someone is looking for it. Bill Horne

Message-ID: <4D7870FF.email@example.com> My sister just got FiOS installed, and she has several dial-pulse (rotary) phones that I'm supposed to hook up. Does FiOS support rotary phones? I'd hate to find out the hard way. Bill -- "I've been up and down this highway, far as my eye can see: No matter how fast I run, I can never seem to get away from me." - Jackson Browne

Message-ID: <4D787309.email@example.com> I was on a phone call with a friend who has phone service from Comcast, and I was reminded several times of why I dropped them: his voice would cut off for two or three seconds at a time, and he said mine would too. Does anyone know why Comcast has so many problems with their phone connections? Bill -- "Hunger in the midnight, hunger at the stroke of noon Hunger in the mansion, hunger in the rented room Hunger on the TV, hunger on the printed page And there's a God-sized hunger underneath the laughing and the rage" - Jackson Browne
