I'm bored so I thought I would blog something.I hope people didn't think I was harsh with hackaday.I was just hoping that my idea would take off ,since I'm not able to complete it.I'm just a hobbyist ,I have hardly any work experience with either hardware or software.I was thinking about something I said in my last entry .About the operating system on a cell phone.I remember in the movie hackers III about Kevin Mitnik .He got a code to punch in to a cellphone to turn it into a scanner.Could you imagine what you could do with the source code to the entire operating system?I was thinking and I'm not sure if many of my ideas would be possible.Some of them would depend on hardware.I can think of like 20 things you might be able to do that you can't now.I'll let you use your own imagination on that subject.I'm frikken bored and if nobody replies these are all suitable topics for general discussion.which reminds me.How does someone miss the forums link ,but somehow find the elusive "new blog entry" link?I am using the blog correectly ,aren't I.
I can't think of anything to program or I would code something in C.I wrote an interesting encryption program a while back but I lost it on a bad hard take file and a password .Then your program reads your file one character at a time and exors it with a character in you password ,looping through both until EOF.This scrambles your file.Repeating the same process reverses the encryption.
If you've made it this far through my blog then I will tell about a windows program I got the other day.Phonetray free edition ,or something like that.It is a caller ID program.I didn't know my winmodem would do caller ID ,but apparently it does.The program has this "zap" feature.So I had these bill collectors calling me every day.After a while I quit answering the phone.Yeah financial responsibility ,blah blah blah.This caller ID program picks up the phone number of the caller .I set the program to zap this particular it answers the call and plays a disconnected message,threee beeps then "we're sorry ,this number has been disconnected".I haven't had a problem with that company since ROFLMAO.

    For the last thing I have an awesome idea!
    If it can handle menus and not just messages...
    Then create a huuugeeee tree like menu, which at some point loops and never ends! That would make the pitiful call agent abandon his try to reach you!

    I wonder if there is something similar for linux.... I'll do a search..

    Thanks for the reply vangelis.I think someone has already made one of your menu answering ideas because I was stuck in one for like an hour the other day.What I hate is the ones that ask you to say what you want and then can't understand what you said.I checked in to programming cellphones a little and I found my cellphone runs BREW ,which is based on c/c++.Qualcomm is the creator of BREW and they make it hard just to get started programming BREW.My main computer blew a PSU so I'm not going to set up any elaborate software on my old spare .Maybe later I will check it out.You know ,if you could transfer the zap function to cellphones using BREW it might be useful.Hmmm
