    USA national do not call registry

    Today is a good day for a lot of us here!

    FTC's national 'Do Not Call' registry is live. Enter your phone number(s) to stop telemarketers from calling.

    http://www.donotcall.gov/

    w00t w00t! Its about damn time!

    The site seems to be sufferning right now... as its hit or miss if I get into it.

    It's prolly been slashdotted...
    Quitmzilla is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.

    ah, didn't see your post... ah well, I'll leave this on the front page for a while, or a mod can delete it. It won't let me delete it... oh well...

    Damn Phish..... I think I love you......

    I have my home answering machine call my cell when someone leaves a message..... It has been a most annoying trait of the tele-jerk-offs to have a recording of them leave a message on mine for the last 2 years....... Now I can stop them if this things actually works.....<s>

    [edit]

    Oh..... BTW..... This definitely deserves to be on the front page

    Is it me or is the link not working? Maybe TOO many people are on the site trying to get their phone number blocked, and the servers overloaded? Either that or maybe it's getting hit by SPAM. Wouldn't that be funny, the DO NOT CALL website gets trashed by SPAM... I can see the headlines now...

    Anyway just wondering if anyone else is having the same problem...

    It took a while but I got in..... Once in it isn't too bad.... I'm awaiting the email as we speak..... Of course this now means that the gubmint can associate my phone numbers with my email address but frankly, its worth the "loss"

    My guess is that since it was on my local news last night, it probably was on a lot of local news stations. I haven't been able to get on since 6 pm last night.

    Man I REALLY have to start watching TV again! But I have been hitting reload every minute for about the past 5 minutes and finally got in. Though Tiger you did not stress how SLOW it is to get in. But hey, at least now the damn telemarketers will stop calling my damn cell phone. I knew I should have registered all those porn subscriptions using my cell phone number *joking*...
