Phone Phreakers

On RBBS, a system easy to get through to, CXCX posted a message that gave notice the Wasted would do a heist at the Glen-Aire School’s Computer Lab. The post failed to impress Captain Lemur Eyes.

“You can’t post you are going to do a heist,” Captain Lemur Eyes told CXCX.

“Why?”

“I thought you were the leader. By the way, how are you going to get so many computers away from the campus?”

“Easy. We’re renting a U-Haul.”

“You aren’t old enough to drive.”

“I have a learner’s permit.”

“You can’t rent a U-Haul with a learner’s permit.”

“The Green Manaleshi is sixteen.”

“Hold on while I scramble this call,” Captain Lemur Eyes said. “Better yet, I will call you back on a phreaked MCI Code.”

To call CXCX back, Captain Lemur Eyes used a phreaked MCI Code he found on a San Francisco BBS post. A scrambler traveled through his APPLE-CAT II.

“Can I get some of the heisted machines?” Captain Lemur Eyes asked.

“Why do you sound so weird?”

“Haven’t you heard a scrambler before?”
