If you're nerdy and ya' know it, blow your xPAP hose!
I enjoy being with a group who like to share their "Hosehead" experiences, to remind me I am not alone.

Can't be talking about me.

You're a complex and interesting individual. Nerd, conservative and a far-out electrical gearhead. You may even be a super-nerd.

I've been seeing these attempts in my firewall logs but I disable ping response on the WAN interface.

I wanted to learn Binary so I enrolled in Binary 101. I seemed to have missed the first four courses. Big Grinnie

???? wha? (whispers) I have blocks on "pings to IP/SIP ports" I think... with my security app... but I don't understand the WAN interface?? ...or maybe I don't understand IP/SIP ports either....duh... no nerd behind this face

Now using a flipfone and no VM. Pretty soon I'm gonna dump the cellfone altogether. Only turn it on if I want to call out.
I learned recently I have misophonia. I hate the constant beeping everywhere I go. Car beeps at me, gas pumps, ATMs, computer and TV UPS-es, !@#$%^ WIND CHIMES!
The only beep I want and enjoy hearing is the single little beep of my CPAP machine when I start it Smile

I have heart felt thanks to you Mark... I considered this concept as well, except I have an elderly mother I need to have an open line for...(I agree 200% with the CPAP beep!)Big Grin

Now we all know that telemarketers can be and are annoying. But today when my cell phone made the 'ping' noise indicating a incoming text msg, I hurried to pick up the phone thinking it might be my grandson. Needless to say it was not my grandson but a 'raw' msg about a part of the male anatomy. My oldest son happened to be visiting me and he offered to see if my phone would block the text msg for any future time. He could not block the msg but definitely deleted the msg at my request. This is my first time receiving such a nasty text. Don't people have anything better to do?
