All of the pages at Paul Mack Presents have all been updated to HTML5.
The Dial-A-Joke page is gradually getting updates with the HTML5 player.
The Superfone recordings have been upgraded to full quality. Some of the Dial-A-Joke recordings off of the phone have
been grouped together for easier listening.
It looks like that the prefetch=none in the audio tag now works with Android and Apple devices. I am now converting the pages to HTML5
files that I wrote years ago. Also I'm getting rid of this mysterious question mark that is littered throughout the comment line page.
I thought at first that it was from double-spaces. Some single spaces produce this character..
It's now on a service called Digital Ocean.
The site is back up again. Experimenting running Windows 10, running as a virtual Linux Mint using Microsoft's Hyper-V.
Because of the problem with iPad and Android devices accessing these pages, I had to shut down the server. It was using the
majority of the bandwidth. The problem is the Safari browser. It seems to ignore
preload="none", so I changed it from
none to metadata. It still loads part of the file so I'll take a look in the logs to see how much is being downloaded.
If this doesn't work the way I want it, I'll just provide links directly to the recordings.
I checked out what the Dial-A-Joke page looked like on an iPad and an Android device. Both locked up. The Android was a Toshiba Thrive.
I looked it up in my server logs and found that the Android has something called Stagefright downloading the content. Not just one file,
but all of the files on the page. I saw an iPad do the same thing.
The comment line page is done except for one recording. It is one Feedback tape whick is corrupted and can't even convert. I am working
on the Dial-A-Joke page. Fluke was done today.
I have added a script that will show when pages have been recently updated.
All of the Paul Mack Presents pages have been updated and checked. I made some changes
so you can see what pages have been updated "NEW!" within the last 30-days. The year dates that should be changed every
year, will now do it automatically.
K-Fone is back up and running........

If you had an account on K-Fone in 2006 or before, your account is still active. They are taking new subscriptions at this time.
The Paul Mack Presents pages are done. The Main page, Movieline pages
The page with the non catagorized recordings called
Other has been updated. I have a couple more recordings to add. The
Comment Line page is in the process of being updated. This one will take some time to do.
The Phunfone page is done. I found out that SoundKonverter can decode
RealAudio files. I was able to encode those files to MP3 & Ogg. The
William Wilde page is next. All that is left is to find and encode his songs.
I am addin MP3and OGG files so that more people can listen to these classic phone recordings. The first page to get them
is Phunfone. I am doing as many as I can each day. I have all of the
Paul Mack Presents tapes encoded and uploaded. I just need time to add
them to their pages.
I cleaned up some of the links down below. The next thing will be to add MP3 files, and maybe
get rid of the RealAudio and Windows Media files. I'm going to start with the easiest ones first, like the ones from
Paul Mack Presents and the other connent lines.
Check out Slurpcast: Mark Bernay & Wes get together once a week
to eat dinner and chew and slurp into a microphone. Oh, yeah, we also discuss the latest technology and Internet
news and often relate the new items to older technology.
Added some stuff from the guys at The Wrong Number,
a funny Funeral Map and a couple of business cards.
I have finally posted the Sounding Board recordings
May 10th would have been Bryan W. Feedback's 50th birthday.
Happy New Year!!!
The system was down for a few weeks. I loaded a new version of the operating system and a new hard drive.
I still need to check and see if most of the links work. There is a problem with the statistics software.
The old database for it has been moved over.
I still have more content to add. Rex from Huntington Beach sent me an old tape of The Wrong Number. I was in
contact with the guys at The Wrong Number. I think I found the artwork for The Wrong Number and will post
that sometime this month. I also have several shows from the line called
Soundingboard. Those came from the
master tapes that Marc's roommate still has.
I'm still bummed about the loss of Al Diamond.
I received some bad news from Stu that Al Diamond (Al Bernay) has died.
Date: Fri, 11 Jul 2008 10:39:37 -0700
Subject: Al Bernay
Hi Ron...just so you know, Al Bernay died yesterday. He was at the Farmer's Market in
Thousand Oaks and collapsed. They rushed him to the hospital and apparently he died
while he was there. I think it was a heart attack, but I haven't talked to the
coroner yet. I got this information from Mark Bernay, who is in Rome right now. Al
had his address book on him and Mark Bernay's number was the first one that was listed.
I'm sure I'll be hearing from someone soon. I'll keep you informed. And yes, if you
want to make an announcement on your site, please do. A sad day for all of us...
I received a tape from Rex of Huntington Beach. It has several Wrong Number recordings.
Also a tape from Marc Soundingboard's roommate Allen.
I will get these up online in the next week or two
Here is my regular blog with stuff on Asterisk PBX and
Trixbox with how to install trixbox and how to configure simple stuff.
Added some pictures to Zzzzzz thanks to Uncle Jeffy.
