OMG I LOVE YOUR WEBSITE

Thanks, liar!


YOU TOTALLY STOLE THIS IDEA FROM PHONE TRIPS!@#$

The first time I'd ever heard of Phone Trips was the first time I was accused from stealing their idea.

When this site was concieved, I was still an AOLer and would frequent the chat rooms where the members would trade sound clips and play them in the room using the sound command (ie {s drip ) I was also already a huge fan of The Phone Losers of America and, in particular, the PLA Phone Directory (aka funnumbs.txt). So I decided to combine my hobbies and record phone sounds for use in the aforementioned chat rooms. Also at the time, I decided I wanted to start a web site so I decided to combine all of the above to make this site



YOU AREN'T A PHONE PHREAKER

Show me where I said I was a phone phreaker. ... I'll wait


MY SITE IS LINKING TO YOURS BUT YOUR SITE ISN'T LINKING TO MINE YOU ARE SO OFF MY LINKS LIST

...or you could have just emailed me, letting me know I need to link to your site. *shrug*


I FOUND THAT PHONE NUMBER AND YOU'RE CREDITING SOMEONE ELSE, JERK!

I credit the website where I found the number or the person who sent it to me. Finding the original source for anything on the web, depending on what your sourcing, can be difficult or even impossible


What do you use to record and edit the sounds?

The newest files were recorded using Skype, a $3 "unlimited" subscription (Which is limited to 100 calls per day. Fortunately for me, Skype doesn't count unsupervised calls), and Skype MX Recorder.

Previous versions of sounds on the site known as The Web Page You Have Reached were recorded using a Beta version of Veritape. The very earliest were recorded using Cool Edit and a speakerphone which explains why one can hear cockatiels chirping in the background.

Cool Edit 96 was used for all editing. Conversion from mp3 was done using WinAmp 2.95 and the Disk Writer Plug In. Conversion to mp3 was done using MusicMatch Jukebox 7.0.

A lot of the software I use is quite old and doesn't even exist using these names anymore (Cool Edit is now Adobe Audition. MusicMatch Jukebox was bought by Yahoo! and later discontinued). However, it can still be found on web sites like Old Version. I use older software because, in some cases, it uses less memory because it has less of those bells and whistles which seem like good ideas in theory but in practice never are used or because it is more reliable that newer versions or because it is adequate and fufills my requirements so I see little reason to use anything else.
