All of my good reverse engines are *gone* man...

privacy on the net crap is what's doing it, I tell ya.

Call screening is next to godliness, as they say...
http://www.anywho.com/rl - my current favorite reverse lookup page.

For about two seconds there, I misread that as "boobie"... yep, you know what I was thinkin' for those two seconds. I am incorrigibly low-minded.

Re: Call screening is next to godliness, as they say...
A name, eh? Rock on. I rarely have that kinda luck lately, and I get TONS of calls on both my home and mobile phones where the name doesn't show up. It's been really annoying since, given the nature of my ex-friends and girlfriends, I NEVER answer the phone if I don't know who it is. That anywho.com link hooked me up a couple of weeks ago though when - god knows why - my ex-wife started calling me and hanging up at 3am after 10 years of no contact. For the record, she's still not a very good liar. Heh. It was actually fairly amusing when I rang back, busting her to her (apparently) current mother-in-law who answered the phone. She hasn't called since. Go figure.

What can I say, chicks dig me. ::koff::

One real bitch about reverse lookup is that it only works with land lines, so any shmoe can ring you stupid with their cute little Nokia mobile torture device, with custom snap-on leopard print/American flag hybrid faceplate. I bet if you ring them back, it plays something by Jennifer Lopez.

Seems unbalanced. I tracked the little cock who nicked my VISA info off some web store down to an electronic lock company in Atlanta, and that took some serious sniffing. Yet I can have someone's phone number (kinda hard to spoof, ya know) right in my face and can't do shit with it. Well, not on my own.

Grrr, I say. Grrr.

I shall rain packet-sized doom upon the filthy cell-beasts. They will know the true horror of the word "resourceful". Or maybe I'll just change my number.

See, I had a phone number (that turned out to be a cell or unlisted... but I think it's a cell because its routing prefix doesn't quite fit with the others in the area... does that make sense?... I'm sure there's *perfect* terminology for it, but alas, I do not posess such things.), an email adress (that was pretty defunct) and a website registered in someone else's name. (I knew the name and who the other person was through a lot of inference)
ANd I ended up after a day of poking around and diving through google groups (what *used* to be DejaNews) a phone number, a full name, an adress, and about 10 other email adresses I hadn't known about.

So I think I did a decent job of that one.

I've not had to deal with the harassing calls since the ex from *way* back spent 3 years calling me anywhere from 4-30 times a day (really depended on where he was in that cycle). So, while I've got some of the protect thyself from psychos instincts, I think they've gone rusty.
He called the other day and I actually sat and listened to him go on about UFOs and fire eating and his 'art' and about what a *good* friend I am.

Why not reign down packet death *and* change your number. That way, they'll have no idea who to call to complain about all the resourcefulness.
