Boost if you know what this means:
It's a string of Hayes modem control codes.
AT - attention
H0 - pick up the phone, ending any previous call from the same modem
M0 - silence the modem speaker
V1 - set the modem to verbose mode, displaying English-language information instead of number codes
D - dial the following number
T - use touch-tone dialing instead of pulse dialing
8675309 - call JENNY-BBS
@noelle NO CARRIER
@noelle seems a bit redundant to throw what should be in your init string into your dial command every time though.
When you're attack dialling a service, gotta get that redial happening as quick as possible.
@mike well, sure, if you're wardialing with a script that supports init strings. ;)
@noelle i.... i thought it said "at homo vid"
@noelle isn't H0 hanging up and H1 is picking up? H0 is fine though (ending any calls if exist)
@FiLiS whoops, you're right - I got it backwards.
@noelle Silencing the modem speaker before dialing? Heresy.
@noelle I'm drawing some blanks on M0V1, something about muting the speaker? 🤔
@noelle *squints hard at Jenny's phone number* 😐
@noelle is this your royal name?
@noelle Surely you meant M1 (for maximum cyber).
@hackerfriendly M0 meant I didn't wake my parents up at 2 in the morning. ;)
@noelle Fair. Still, silently calling her and hanging up after printing NO CARRIER is still pretty cyber.
@noelle ...unless Jenny ran a BBS in your area code of course.
@noelle either M or V is the volume? But what is the other?
@noelle Okay but what did Jenny do to deserve a modem handshake screech in her ear when she answers her phone?
