    IIRC the DNC registry does NOT apply to cellphones.

    I've got to where if I don't know the number, I don't pick up. The
    number is almost always spoofed. I've had junk calls nominally from my
    own number.

    It did not used to. It also does not apply to groups/businesses that you
    have a "previous relationship" with. I think that is a loose term that can mean something as simple as you answered the phone and said hello once in
    the past.

    Well, so much for that idea.

    August,

    Interesting. I've heard some pretty bizarre ringtones and
    answering machine messages over the years.

    Look into https://jollyrogertelephone.com/

    Cell phones and voip are specifically supported.

    That's about all that's left nowadays...landlines and payphones
    have gone the way of the dinosaur.

    Seriously, portions of New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, and other areas, have been under Winter Storm Warnings or Ice Storm Warnings. With
    many of the trees still having leaves on them, it apparently is leading
    to widespread power outages.

    Here in Montana we got global warming 6 weeks early ... below zero a lot
    of places (close here) ... our little banana belt got 8 inches, and

    early 1960s.

    I never dreamed so much was involved in printing signs, textiles, decals, caps, etc.

    I think it was the first time Ice Storm Warnings had been issued in
    Oklahoma in October.
