The fact the whole state is a river flood plain and only stupid people build homes in a river flood plain?

Global warming may have cause the weather pattern changes, but it does not change the fact that if you build in the low lands, you have to expect flooding because it will absolutely happen with a 100% guarantee.

Sounds to me like you where using a crappy adaptor. I've been using several midrange audio head phones, and some high end head phones for several years over blue tooth 2.1+ and I've never seen any kind of issues like that. I've used everything from low end mp3 to high end aac, even flac and they all sound fine based on the hiead phone I'm using.

I image you have a cheap adaptor or your mp3 encoding sucks.

She is not a witch.

How can you be sure she is not a witch? Are you preview to dark gods or goddesses that might or might not worship when we are all fast asleep? It is not far stretch to believe that dances naked (sorry about that mental image guys) around some pagan alter in the dead of the night. We will never be 100% sure till she passes the water test.

100% bs. they know where they are coming from.

When a VoIP call is made to a landline or cellphone number, the call travels for a portion of the time over the PSTN. The amount of time the call spends on the PSTN usually determines the price of the call (apart from the base charges for any VoIP to VoIP call).

At the point where it enters the PSTN, a process called address translation takes place. It means that the IP address is translated to the identifying phone number of the called party to complete the call. It is similar to the process used to convert email IDs and website links to IP addresses on the Internet. This is logged for billing purposes and then the CID information is passed on to the system.

Comment Really simple. (Score 1) 113

Stop accepting any calls routed from unknown phone companies. It will stop 99% of them that are simply a freaking PC that is making VOIP calls via a scumbag VOIP service provider that will let them send whatever CID information they want.

Call coming into AT&T from a unknown and untrusted call routing? Refuse it.
