I had an uncle that taught me to make redbox calls back in the late 90s.
They never seemed to suspect a 7 year old of redboxing so I never got yelled at.
I decided to google phone phreaking one afternoon in 2005 which lead me to the PLA.
I registered to the forums a few times since but, figured no one would really want a little kid on the forums so I never posted and my accounts all got deleted due to not being used.
I'm 19 now. Still a kid but, whatever. I like being young.
I've had a couple of jobs working at save-a-lot and RadioShack.
I'm in the Army Reserve but, other than that unemployed right now.

I once bought a sticker for $1 and forgot all about it until a month or two later when I received a package with a sticker, couple of buttons, more stickers, and a CD with tons of audio that has been way over played since because rbcp forgot about my sticker or got busy/lazy causing him to send it late. To top it off the shipping was $1.06
I just recently finished the PLA book (slow reader)
I had bought the hard copy and then realized it's hard to read books in the dark so I bought a nook color, and read it off that.
While I was reading the cactus story I was on the NYC subway and decided to read it out loud.
I've never seen a small group of people on the subway so interested in cactus.

Oh yeah. Hi, my name is WiFiPunk.

Every time I sign up on these forums and come back a few years later my account is gone! Go figure..

Hey y'all. I registered a long time ago, made a couple posts, then got distracted with marriage and jobs and crap. But now the wife's in the hospital and I have no job, and I'm bored at home a lot more than usual. So now I'm back to try this again, and this time, I'll stick with it. Consider this my re-introduction.

Loving CactiRadio!
I can't think of anything clever to put here, but I don't want to leave it blank, either.
So, KIRBY DANCE!

My only question is if you poisoned your wife or not.

perhaps he just shot up heroine and then his office, and his wife happened to be a co-worker that got caught in the cross fire...

Hi friends, I've been a fan of this site for a long time, the pranks are hysterical. I'm getting more and more interested in telephone networks, thought this would be a good place to start.

Sup PLA, EKLIPz/Nate here. Just heard about this community from a video a friend showed me, of the prank calls. Laughed my ass off, and decided to check it out. Surprised to see how long this place has been kicking. I don't usually jump on things that are this old(I don't like being uber new. :P)but this seemed like a cool place.

Anywho, I work at a Wal*Mart in NJ, and know a few things about the phone system if you need any info. ^_^

Hi there.  I live in the  Portlandiego area.  I have been a lame ass fan of phreaking going back to 1990.  If you count the phone number I learned to make any landline where I grew up ring then we could change that to 1980.  I am not that great at the technical side of phreaking, however I understand the language.  When I discovered PLA redboxing was about to die, it had about 5 years to go.  I used to play 'Car Wars', only with the little chits and the paper foldouts of the arena or the linking highway.  Steve Jackson games also had a bunch of wargames with sci-fi themes on hexagon maps that featured great art but poor play.  'G.E.V.' was my favorite, but I never finished a game.  'Car Wars was a breakout, and presaged the video game blowup by a hair.  It had a magazine that went with it-'Autoduel Quarterly'-  but you could only get it by post or in the bigger town south of me, so it was tough, at that time,  in 8th grade.  The reason I bring this up is I was captivated by the sweeps that engulfed Steve Jackson Games.  More than that I read the book concerning it by Bruce Sterling.  After that I was hooked following phreaking and to a lesser extent hacking.  At this point in time, they are almost nearly the same.  I lamented the death of the payphone, seriously.  It ushered in a new area of humanless conduct and a further detachment from the magic of the telephone.  In my lifetime it is likely there will no no differenciation between what I consider a computer and what I consider a telephone.  In other words, no more telephones. 
Going back to Steve Jackson games, I wondered what became of Car Wars?  Oh yeah its called 'Twisted Metal' and its okay.  Way more importantly, what became of 'Illuminati'?  As far as card/board games of that era, it was a standout.
Okay this was my little entry spiel.  Now I need to find out how to fuck with my latest ex-girlfriend's cellphone.  She texted mine from a ghost number and it took me a few to realize what was going on so I suppose I want some revenge however her shitty life is the best revenge I can have.  Honestly.  I am curious though, what the phreaks have been up to lately?  I been out of the loop, and so, with all forthrightness, here I am to get into the loop.  At least a little.
