3/12    Anybody know what this number does? x3-7907 (510-643-7907).
        Odd behaviour.
        \_ What does it do?
        \_ Interesting.  If you press numbers after it picks-up it will echo
           them back to you.
           \_  If you speak loudly or whistle, it will also echo.
               How would i find out what it does? Can i call the campus
               telecom office? Or would they just shut it down w/o telling
               me what it does? I am very curious about it.
               And what is that sequence of tones it plays right after
               it picks up? Hmmm...
               \_ Yeah, it's weird.  The tones are most likely DTMF (numbers).
                  There are programs that take sound files of DTMF and display
                  which numbers they represent. -- peterl
                \_ Dude, seriously, I just have a box hooked up to my dorm

                   \_ Hmm, pardon my skepticism, but uh, if it really is
                      your number (it doesnt show up in my directory by
                      the way), what does it do? Thanks.
                        \_ It's a psych experiment to see how many geeks I can
                           get to try to hack a simple echo box.
        \_ That's my dorm phone number.
        \_ How'd you find it?
                \_ I posted it on usenet.

3/10    How is .CMD files different from .BAT files in NT?  Thx.
        \_ I believe they're the same.
        \_ There's some obscure difference which I once knew but have since
           forgotten as it didn't make any real world difference to me.  I
           just use .BAT and forget about it.
