ObHack: Doing the same thing using a potato. Just cut it in half, and
press it into the base.

ObHack #2: Not much of a hack, but I'm hacking (hooking?) together 5
386's running linux to a 28.8 and a network hub to be my
(low-bandwidth) internet site. It's a lot of work...

Should we play a game? Name the most glaring technical inconsistency
in Johnny  Mnemonic. I would say using a buttset to hack a payphone
internet pop was... weak. The dtmf a buttset can make isn't different
>from  the dtmf of the payphone. Weak, weak. And the brand name of the
buttset? "Infobahn 3000". PLEASE.
