How to annoy the ever living sh!t out of someone ...................... from someone being annoyed in this manner.

If you hate someone, and you know their phone number, do this:

Go online to one of these "multi-quote insurance" sites, or multiple sites if you wish, and enter some BS information, and list your contact number as the one for your enemy.

33 calls by 10:30am today. :roll:

This has been going on for years! I think all the company systems set you up to "follow up" with you every six months or a year or something, so they will just start calling again out of the blue. But today (or yesterday), my nemesis must have started the whole thing over, because they are attacking like mad today! :x

Definitely a huge irritation! It can be stopped by physically telling the companies to stop calling you and/or getting on the do not call list, both are huge PITAs, but it will eventually stop the crank calls. Hopefully you know who is doing this to you, I'd return the favor with every fly-by-night company I could think of. You may also be able to report the nemesis to your service provider and/or the local police for harassment.

That criteria didn't get me kicked out last month so I'm sure you're good to stay in.

Just a random pic that means really nothing. In a side deal made while I was buying an old school funny car last week, I spied a B2 on the seller's shelf, and offered a passive interest in it although I REALLY wanted it. Come to find out, he was very reasonable with it, and it came home with me. I have been unable to find an actual B2 in my necks of the woods forever!! To run across this one as a side deal made my day!! :D Now I just need to prioritize the builds of the B2 and the B3.

Does anyone happen to have an actual physical copy of March 1988 RCCA? There are a couple of small B&W pics that just don't come up clear enough in my scanned version (probably the same version everyone has) to make out any detail that I would like to get.

Awesome!

Technically, I would like page 62, and mainly the three smaller pics at the bottom. A clear scan of page 61 would be a great bonus! :D

Thanks Brad! It looks like it was just an issue with being a small B&W pic in 1988, and the contrast makes it so difficult to tell what the chassis plate really looked like. I'll see if I can work with the pic a little to make it a little more clear.

Yeah those b&w pics are small and low quality.. you can see the printing dots in the close-up..

This one was on eBay not too long ago. Although I don't think it's the one from the magazine: https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/vintage-1980s-advance-engineering-10-3844913772
