Anybody been to DialPad?? It allows you to make phone calls for free over the Internet. It's pretty cool, actually.
Anyway, the other day I was having fun, so I turned my speaker up on the computer and dialed the cube across from me. When he answered, he didn't know he was being broadcast to
half of the office.
What I need is a random dial feature. This would allow you to enter say 20 numbers, and it would randomly pick one to dial. This way, you could play a game where you could guess who was answering. You could place wagers with co-workers. It would be a lot more fun.
Also, a random dial button on a regular phone would be good too. Perfect for when you want to talk to somebody, and you don't care who.

Wrong Number Generator
You have to do some hunting to find it (its the last item under "Surveillance Telephone and Audio Devices"), but when your phone line is plugged into this device, three out of four calls will be a wrong number. [beauxeault, Mar 21 2001, last modified Oct 17 2004]
