As promised in our last
issue, we are back and even better
than ever. I took some heat for issue #1’s text reader, so
the unfavorable feedback I have decided to drop the reader from the
The whole reader is being completely rewritten and
may eventually be added back in, but not at
this time. If you feel
a reader should be added back in let me know. I have had many
people ask me the question "Why do you have a reader for MessyDos?"
Well it is
simple. Authenticity. I have found in my days of
modeming there are little kids out there who
get their kicks out of
popping the magazine in an editor and changing stuff around, which
in turn makes us look bad. Now that this has been removed be sure
to get a copy from a
reliable source. This can always be obtained
from EFF by FTP at ‘ftp.eff.org’ in

submissions to the magazine. Com’ on guys, I mean we can keep
feeding you all of this
cool shit, but you have got to at least
give us a little back. We are still looking for
We also need someone who can write articles in the way of global
hackers in the news. If interested mail into the magik mailbox.
SunOS buggy? No way! They
got rid of all the bugs, didn’t
Okay, when SunOS executes a program, it
does dynamic library
It checks the libraries in this order:
The preloaded symbols
The user dynamic library symbols
system default dynamic library symbols
Here’s an example of how to take advantage of
execl("/bin/sh", "sh", 0);
cc -c -O -R -pic sync.c <–Compile it
ld -o buglib.so.1.1 -assert pure-text
sync.o <–Make a library
setenv LD_PRELOAD ./buglib.so.1.1 <–Set the preload list
When you do this, it does an su to sync, then sees your fake sync()
which calls up a shell. Course you’re still running as the
sync account is just uid=1, gid=1. But there’s all those setuid
programs floating around out
there. Use your imagination…

Contrary to what most people think, the "founding

This little quote from a "founding father" remind you of something you
told a cop
or your parents once or twice? Only difference is they would
say "go home" and we’d
say "go to hell" or "drop dead".
Okay, before we get to the crap, I got
something good to show yas.
See, I figure people think law is boring. I guess they just
been reading the right kind of law. You just gotta look in the right
This thing is verbatim right from the sentencing. The U.S.
Judge was sitting in an adobe
stable they was using as a temporary
court room. This was Federal District Court in the New
Territory. The guy was convicted of murder.
Jose Manuel Miguel Xavier Gonzales,
in a few short weeks it
will be spring. The snows of winter will flee away, the ice will
vanish, and the air will become soft and balmy. In short, Jose
Manuel Miguel Xavier Gonzales,
the annual miracle of the years
will awaken and come to pass, but you won’t be there.
The rivulet will run its soaring course to the sea, the
timid desert flowers will put forth
their tender shoots, the
glorious valleys of this imperial domain will blossom as the
rose. Still, you won’t be here to see.
From every tree top some wild woods songster will carol
mating song, butterflies will sport in the sunshine, the busy bee
will hum happy as
it pursues its accustomed vocation, the gentle
breeze will tease the tassels of the wild
grasses, and all
nature, Jose Manuel Miguel Xavier Gonzales, will be glad, but
won’t be here to enjoy it because I command the Sheriff
or some other officer of the country
to lead you out to some
remote spot, swing you by the neck from a knotting bough of some
sturdy oak, and let you hang until you are dead.
And then, Jose Manuel Miguel Xavier Gonzales,
command that such officer or officers retire quickly from your
corpse, that vultures may descend from the heavens upon
your filthy body until nothing shall
remain but bare, bleached
bones of a cold-blooded, copper-colored, blood-thirsty, throat-
cutting, chili-eating, sheep-herding, murdering son-of-a-bitch.
United States of America v.
Gonzales (1881), United States
District Court, New Mexico Territory Sessions.
Ever been "forced" to sign something? Well, the U.C.C. lets
you get around that
problem. See, they figured there would be times
where you would sign something you didn’t want
to. They went and
made the rules so that a smart guy could get out of that. I like
loaded dice. So, there’s a loophole for when you don’t have free
will to sign shit. When you
sign something "without prejudice"
or "under protest", you can get out of
the signature and you can
even sue to get even (sue to recover rights). Every state has
adopted this section at least, including Louisiana as of 1/1/75.
See Louisiana Revised States
The following states clearly follow 1-207 (all citations
are to the
state’s highest court (usually the supreme court)
unless otherwise indicated): Ohio (544
N.E.2d 869 (1989)); and
Rhode Island (3 UCC Rept Serv. 2d 466 (R.I. Dist Ct, 1987).
The following states distinguish 1-207, and continue to
prohibit a creditor from altering
an endorsement restriction and
thereby reserving rights to collect the balance: Alabama
So. 2d 1122 (1979)); Alaska (673 P.2d 724 (1983)); Arkansas (644

(Fla. App. 1981)); Georgia (858 F.2d 1507 (Cir 11, 1988); 265
(1980)); Illinois (722 F.Supp. 339 (E.D.Va 1989)
(This cite looks bad to me; An Illinois issue
decided in the
Eastern District of Virginia? It’s possible, but unlikely; I
transcribed the cite incorrectly); Kansas (762 P.2d 196
(1988)); Louisiana (423 So. 2d 752
(La. App. 1982); 799 F.2d

N.W.2d 655 (1984); and Wyoming (593 P.2d 828 (1979)). What this
means is that the
U.C.C. does not supercede the common law accord
and satisfaction. A debtor can add
"payment in full" on an
endorsement, but a creditor CAN’T alter it.
following states have authority on either side of the
question, and appear unsettled: Missouri

all in U.C.C. Book 1, Section 207:
Performance or Acceptance Under Reservation of Rights.
A party who with explicit reservation of rights performs or
promises performance or assents
to performance in a manner
demanded or offered by the other party does not thereby
the rights reserved. Such words as ‘without prejudice,’ ‘under
protest’ or the
like are sufficient.
What a bunch of crap to hide what it means, eh? The whole
U.C.C. is written like that. If you don’t believe it’s in there,
go get a college business law
book. Most of them have a copy of
the U.C.C. stuffed in the back some place and they might
talk about this section some place else in the book (ha! not). To
requirements, just write the words "signed without
prejudice," above or beside your
If you start doing this, use "without prejudice" instead of
"under protest" because a circuit judge that Thomas Covenant
(of Thieves’ World)
messed with didn’t even know what it meant.
If a judge asks you what you mean when you said
you could tell him something like this: "It indicates I
exercised the remedy provided for me in the Uniform Commercial Code
by which I
might reserve the common law right not to be compelled
to perform under any contract that I
have not entered knowingly,
voluntarily, and intentionally."
You probably contracted away some of your constitutional
without even realizing it. Here’s some examples:
You contract away your right to free
speech when you enter
a movie theatre. You cannot talk or whistle or sing or the
management will kick you out (and no refund).
You contract away your freedom of
assembly when you sign an
apartment lease. You cannot have a political rally with 100
people every night in your apartment. Same goes for freedom of
contract with your employer to go by his rules. (No
gambling, no alcohol on company premises).
If you break a rule,
you get fired. You do not get a trial. It is breach of
You contract away your right to a jury trial when you sign
agreement with Merrill Lynch, etc. You agree to use
binding arbitration instead of the court
You agree some place in your driver’s license application to
obey all the
rules. The state legislature writes these statutes
(they are NOT laws). And then can change
them any time they feel
like it. They are the terms of the contract. Part of the terms
of the contract include waiving some of your constitutional
If a police
officer stops you, he writes you a ‘ticket’.
There is probably some part of the contract that
says you can
have a "trial" (it’s an administrative hearing) if you break a
rule. To make it look real, most states will even allow you to
have a "jury", but
they usually try to skimp on the 12 jurors
required for a real trial. Civil rules are NOT
always called an ‘offense’ or an ‘infraction’ to disguise this
fact. It is
a breach of contract.
Under the constitution, you get a jury trial for all crimes
(6th amendment) and a jury trial for all civil law suits for an
amount over $20 (7th
amendment). A traffic hearing is not a
criminal court, so forget the 6th amendment. It’s not a
law suit, so forget the 7th amendment. It’s a breach of contract
Now the UCC comes in. Almost all of it covers rules for
contracts and breaches of
contracts. The UCC says that you do
not have to honor a contract unless you entered
intentionally, and willfully." It assumes that you did all these
things if you received benefits from the contract unless you
specifically reserve your rights.
In this case, one of the
benefits is lower insurance rates since you are a licensed
If you reserved your rights by signing without prejudice,
the state can
still sue you, but it has to be a common law suit.
Look at Article III, Section 2, paragraph 2
of the Constitution
of the United States. It would be unfair for a state court to
case in which the state is one of the parties, so the
Supreme Court has jurisdiction over this
Did you know you were giving up your constitutional rights
when you entered
into that contract? It is fraudulent to enter
into a contract without entering
"knowingly, intentionally, and
willfully". You can rescind that contract. That is
part of what
the form letter below is about, but that particular form letter
more complicated for other reasons.
The Form Letter
Okay, this is a sneaky
document that a guy sent me that is
essentially a template Go Away form written by an 18 year
kid that just decided he had enough shit and started reading the
law, just like
everybody told him to do. Now, a lot of this
shit is going to sound REALLY screwed up. Do NOT
in law that you don’t understand or you will get in trouble. I
eventually explain everything in it. You might want to
at least consider what it says in 3-511
and then write a letter
to anybody you’re signing "without prejudice" with and tell
to throw away the form you signed.
Let it be known, I reserve all of my
rights under the common
law provisions and proceed to base my claim of fraud upon all who
deny me these rights.
I shall continue to state, I am not a resident of the District
of Columbia or a foreign corporation, officer, director, stockholder,
or employee of a foreign
corporation, or a citizen of the United
States, or a citizen of the U.S., or a citizen of any
conglomerate state government, and I am not a resident of any federal
possession, enclave, or fort etc., and if I of necessity receive any
governmental benefits and
privileges, it is without prejudice,
reserving all rights as per the Uniform Commercial Code
1-207. I am
therefore not subject to the color of law jurisdictions of the United
in the corporate monopoly of the federal and state governments.
I am a natural and corporeal
person and cannot live in a
corporate fiction called the United States nor the corporate
called the State of California. I thereby claim my rights under the
which is the Supreme Law of the Land. The Bill of Rights
enumerates some of our God-given
rights as sovereign citizens.
I deny all jurisdictional claims you present over me. I
respectfully dishonor all claims against me this day, and all other
days that I
have been forced to enter into this jurisdiction by
estoppel, fraud, misrepresentation,
duress, coercion, mistake, etc.
This is done upon the following provisions of Code:
Under U.C.C. 1-207 Performance or acceptance under reservation of
A party who
with explicit reservation of rights performs or
promises performance or assents to performance
in a manner demanded or
offered by the other party does not thereby prejudice the rights
reserved. Such words as "without prejudice", "under protest" or the

recourse on the instrument

provisions of law
Unless displaced by the particular provisions of this act,

(4) After receipt of a justified demand failure to provide within
a reasonable time not
exceeding thirty days such assurance of due
performance as is adequate under the circumstances

Credit Card Formula
Now days it seems
credit card numbers and CBI/TRW accounts are
hard to come by. With this, there seems one
simple solution, why
can’t you create your OWN virgin credit card numbers? The whole
process is very simple and can be used to create all of the credit
card numbers you would
Mastercard – 5xxx xxxx xxxx xxxc
Visa – 4xxx xxx xxx xxc
Gold – 4xxx xxxx xxxx xxxc
American Express – 3xxxxxxxxxc
If you have an IQ above
0 then you would know that the X’s can
be filled in with a random number from 0-9. But what
are the C’s
filled in with? The C is the check digit for the whole card. In
compute this check digit you must use a mathematical
formula. First lets assume the Mastercard
we made up was ‘5123
1234 1234 123c’. The first thing we need to do is assign each
number a place value, so we would start from the right and work out
way to the left, for
15 14 13 12 11 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 c
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | |
5 1 2 3 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 c
Now starting from the right (#1) and moving to the
we would take every -ODD- number and multiply it by 2. The answer
out to be 38 from out example. We would now round the
number to the nearest number divisible
by 10 which in this case
would be 40. We would subtract 38 from 40 (40 – 38 = 2). Are
check digit in this example would be 2.
Now that you can create the card #, you need a
checking this credit card. This can be done very simply with this
(1) Dial 1-800-554-2265
(2) Dial 1067#24#
(3) 10# for Mastercard or 20# for
(4) Credit Card Number then #
(5) Expiration date in the form (MM/YY) then #
(6) Ammount in XX*XX (IE 10*16 would be $10.16) then #
You now have a virgin credit
card number, have phun =)
Telecom Winners And Losers
By Dr. Jerry Lucas
time for TeleStrategies’ annual analysis of winners and
losers in the coming year. First,
we’ll review how we called them last
year (TeleStrategies Insight, January 1992) because it’s
fun to toot
your own horn when you’re right. Then we’ll cover what happened in
influenced our assessment for 1993. Finally, we’ll tell you
what to expect this year if you
like to pick winners rather than
TELESTRATEGIES’ TOP TEN WINNERS AND
4. Cellular Technologies
800 Number Portability
6. Video Dial Tone
7. IntraLATA Toll
8. Screen Phones
First, a quick technology refresher:
Synchronous Optical Network
(SONET) is the standardization of optical fiber transport;
Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) is the multiplexing and/or switching
access to SONET
Last year at this time, the only ATM/SONET game was the RBOCs’
Switched Multimegabit Data Service (SMDS). We deemed it a loser and
that opinion remains
unchanged. Why? SMDS doesn’t create value for end
users. As planned, SMDS would deliver LAN
connectivity to users via a
public packet network with 1.5 to 45 Mbps access. First, there is
demand today for public (i.e., inter-company) LAN connectivity except
in the research
and education market. If you are a player in R&E, you
get it for "free" via
Internet. (See TeleStrategies Insight, November
1992). Second, if you want switched,
connectivity with 1.5 Mbps access, and you have to pay for it, you
get it today with frame relay technology. Third, the only way to
justify 45 Mbps
access today is interconnection to an interexchange
carrier where voice, data and video can be
integrated to the IXC
serving center. In summary, if your view of how ATM/SONET will roll
out in 1993 is megabit per second, data only, access to a public ATM
switch (SMDS), you
So what happened in 1992 to make ATM/SONET timely and a winner for
The ATM Forum. In 1992 the computer/LAN people joined with the
router, T1 mux, DCS and CO
vendors to push for CPE ATM standards
compatible with carrier SONET. The end result: it is now
ATM CPE to interface with an ATM/SONET-based IXC. Look for the large
user to see the first wave of ATM CPE products and compatible
private line carrier offerings
by year end.
Last year we picked 1992 as the year the FCC would
follow the New York
PSC’s lead regarding CO collocation for the Alternative Local
Transport Service (ALTS) providers. The FCC did just that last summer
with the result that
collocation for special private line access is
here. So, if you were an ALTS and took the risk
to start up or fortify
your market position, as you already know, you were a winner in
What else happened in 1992 to affect collocation opportunities in
Plenty. First, collocation has now been established as an
acceptable practice at the state PUC
level. RBOC COs haven’t been
destroyed by "incompetent" ALTS technicians when on
site at the CO,
etc. Second, Senator Al Gore was elected Vice President. It is likely
that he will use his position to become the U.S. "technology czar,"
emphasis on his "baby," the National Research and
Education Network (NREN), the
gigabit replacement for Internet (see
TeleStrategies Insight, June 1992). Third, the RBOCs
lost the special access monopoly with collocation (a $3 billion
market). It’s just a matter of time until switched access (a $20
billion market) is opened to
competition, further eroding the RBOCs
position. In light of this a few RBOCs (or
independents) have realized
that "if you can’t beat them, join them."
What should you expect in 1993 regarding collocation opportunities?
First, a lot of hype about
the telecom infrastructure creating jobs
(the Gore/NREN effect) followed by creative
RBOC/state PUC initiatives
to attract new business. The bottom line for 1993: very special
collocation agreements between corporate networking customers and
RBOCs with the blessing
of state PUCs. If the RBOCs are going to get
bypassed anyway, why shouldn’t they get in on it
themselves. The RBOCs
could win big politically with Washington, their state governments
others by teaming with end users! Collocation offers endless
the creative ones in 1993.
Last year we said that there wouldn’t be any
reallocations for Personal Communications Services (PCS) and that the
Pioneer Preference system was the best way to go if you wanted
to start up now. We were right
on both counts.
If you are exploring PCS opportunities in 1993, here’s what happened
in 1992 that you should know about. (1) You can no longer file for a
(2) The FCC issued a Notice of Proposed Rule
Making for PCS frequency reallocation and was
deluged with comments.
MCI’s proposal drew significant attention. It calls for the creation
of three national consortia in which no one company would have a
controlling interest and
no one would be allowed to hold both cellular
and PCS licenses in the same geographic area.
(3) Last month Pacific
Bell blew it for RBOC PCS set-asides last when they announced their
"Divestiture II," which will split their cellular operations and
exchange operations into two separate companies.
Readers of TeleStrategies Insight (August
1991) shouldn’t have been
surprised because we predicted a year and a half ago that an RBOC
would do exactly what Pacific Bell now says it will do.
If you aren’t a cellular
carrier or a PCS pioneer but want to get into
PCS in 1993, start by reading MCI’s PCS
consortia proposal to the FCC.
It’s well thought out and has had a lot of input from
players. Start networking with these consortia because 1993 will be
filings. There will be no set-aside frequencies nor will
there be lotteries as with
4. CELLULAR TECHNOLOGY
Last year at this time, the hot topic in
cellular was TDMA vs. CDMA.
We called TDMA the definite winner for this year and we were
McCaw, Rogers Cantel and Southwestern Bell are implementing TDMA.
Bell, NYNEX, U S WEST) who are publicly leaning toward
CDMA may have to go with TDMA just to
meet the digital marketing hype
that’s starting to float around. Regarding 1993, what new
developments have arisen to create future opportunities? Packet data
cellular. The significance of packet data via cellular is that the
air time costs drop (you
pay by the data burst) and less power is
drawn from the batteries (giving you longer periods
recharges). The packet cellular systems tested in 1992 were made by
Data, Inc., and IBM (Cellplan II). Cellular carriers are
getting ready to roll out one or the
other. In 1993, opportunities
abound for applications and distribution for low-cost, portable
5. 800 NUMBER PORTABILITY
Number portability allows
current 800 customers to move their 800
business to another IXC without changing their phone
numbers; they can
divide their business based on call origination location, time of day
or by a random percentage allocation. No winners or losers were
predicted last year because
800 number portability wasn’t scheduled to
happen until 1993.
Starting in May,
1993 or shortly thereafter, 800 number portability
will create new opportunities for:
IXCs who are lusting after AT&T’s 800 customers. Even the smallest
IXCs will be
able to participate because they can carry national 800
account originating traffic in their
service area only.
THE MEDIA will bombard the U. S. with 800 advertisements. TV and
media are in for a revenue windfall. Big bucks will be spent by AT&T,
Sprint and others on 800 service advertisements.
CONSUMERS will benefit because 800
number portability brings SS7
connectivity with it. This means almost all telephone calls will
distance-insensitive regarding call set-up time.
POTENTIAL TOLL FRAUD VICTIMS
will have less exposure. Almost all toll
fraud (that end users are liable for) originates with
an 800 call to a
company’s voice mail box or direct inward system access (DISA) line.
800 number portability gives users the ability to "red line." Here’s
an example: the
Bronx area of New York City is a hot bed of toll fraud
activity. Users will be able to block
calls down to that NPA-NXX.
LECs performing centralized data base dips will not only
compensated for IXC selection and more, but the SS7 infrastructure
will be in place
to create other intelligent network services.
But what about AT&T? On the surface,
800 number portability looks like
a loser for them; they’re going to lose 800 customers or at
of their customers’ traffic. But there are some things AT&T can do to
mitigate the damage:
1. Fight for Deregulation — Once 800 number portability goes
effect, AT&T can make the case to the FCC that they no longer have the
advantage created in the pre-divestiture days when they were the only
800 game in town. This
appears to be the last issue Judge Greene has
to resolve with AT&T. It is probable that
AT&T’s competitors will
bring up their international market or their calling card
but these arguments pale with respect to those of 800 number
question now is why should AT&T be regulated any
differently than MCI or Sprint?
2. AT&T Patents — Three years ago in TeleStrategies Insight
we wrote an analysis of AT&T’s patents and
potential strategies they could implement to
generate billions in
revenues. In that article I predicted that within a year AT&T would
after its competition, probably targeting MCI for violating its 800,
0+, VPN and
other intelligent network call processing method patents.
Well, I was right and wrong. It took
three years rather than one (We
had to wait for 800 number portability to be set in motion.).
notified the FCC (on Thanksgiving eve) that MCI may be violating its
intelligent network patents with its Canadian long distance deal.
(Patent attorneys say the
way you notify the world you’re ready to go
to court is by using the word "may.")
Briefly, here’s what’s going on with AT&T patents. AT&T has patents
from 1979 to 1982 that appear to cover all intelligent
networking including the use of a
database to process 800 calls (the
Weber patent). Under the terms and conditions of the
agreement (the MFJ), the RBOCs can use any AT&T patents issued through
January 1, 1989, but no one else can without a licensing agreement.
AT&T has notified the
FCC that it will not claim infringement if a
carrier (IXC) purchases or interacts with the 800
database. But, AT&T also states that there may be a Weber patent
violation if a carrier operates such a database in its own network.
The bottom line
(another prediction): AT&T can and may choose to make
its competitors lives a patent
litigation nightmare on everything from
enhanced 800 to personal communications services if
they want to, and
I think they want to. At a minimum, any revenues AT&T loses in the
marketplace from number portability will be made up by patent license
Stay tuned in 1993.
6. VIDEO DIAL TONE
In October, 1991, the FCC issued a Notice
of Proposed Rule Making on
video dial tone which they approved in July 1992. Here’s some
background: the FCC informed the RBOCs they could provide video to the
home as common
carriers, but they couldn’t own more than 5 percent of
an information product or be a program
packager (i.e., editor).
TeleStrategies’ view of this opportunity is that the RBOCs should
forget going solo; instead, they should partner rather than compete
with the cable
industry. Our 1993 assessment: video dial tone is a
loser for the RBOCs.
win? Small entrepreneurs. Here’s how: the RBOCs seem to want
the perception in the industry
that they are video players. Under
today’s rules, they need video packagers as partners. The
operators won’t play, so you, as a private or wireless cable TV
even a second cable operator in a market, can fill the
gaps. Structure a deal in which the
RBOCs provide the fiber
infrastructure, and tariff or price it to you under the video dial
tone umbrella (You pay for service incrementally rather than pay the
fully allocated cost
of infrastructure.). Of course, you have to give
them a buy-out option when they get
permission to get into real cable
TV service. RBOCs need video players and small entrepreneurs
that role in 1993.
7. INTRALATA TOLL
Last year we said that
nothing would happen in intraLATA toll
competition regarding 1+ presubscription. Well, we were
one state (North Dakota) has moved ahead with it. This year won’t be
different. Although nearly 40 states permit 10XXX intraLATA
competition, the IXCs haven’t
touched it. Only MCI has mildly pushed
Why? The IXCs are not really ready
to explain in a marketing campaign
to the general public what a LATA is, the state PUCs
comfortable with the revenue loss the RBOCs would suffer and the RBOCs
(conveniently) aren’t ready with their switches to handle 1+,
intraLATA presubscription. (They
want to wait and have this done via
AIN — see number 9 below.)
But who can win
an intraLATA role? Resellers. The cost of a 100- mile
intraLATA toll call can typically cost
two to three times that of a
coast-to-coast call or 25 cents to 50 cents more per minute.
margins aren’t "plump," they’re obese. The good news is that a lot of
states permit intraLATA resale. Regardless, if you are a small
carrier, most states don’t
police intraLATA where customers have
direct access to your switch.
Last year we predicted that screen phones coupled with CLASS (Custom
Signalling Services) would be a marketplace winner in 1992.
We still believe they will be a
winner, but screen phones only made it
to the market field-trial stage last year. The problem
of standards and Bellcore expects this to be completed this month.
In case you haven’t been tracking this opportunity, a screen phone is
about 1.5 times the
size of a regular phone; it has a display that
ranges from three to four lines of text to
4"x4". It has an additional
four control buttons and some have more soft key
options. When coupled
with CLASS, you have a very powerful networking capability that
requires only the same skill level needed to operate your bank’s ATM.
Who’s going to
win in 1993? LECs with CLASS service and equipment
vendors with simple screen terminals (like
Northern Telecom’s Display
Phone with a projected roll out price of less than $200). Who’s
to lose? LECs without CLASS services and terminal vendors who make
too hard to use — if an eight year old can’t use it,
Excitement remains for the Advanced Intelligent Network (AIN) concept,
particularly within the
computer industry. Briefly, AIN permits new
service development to occur outside the CO’s
computer, thus speeding
up service delivery (months vs. years). It permits the use of
high-power, low-cost workstations and many custom databases holding
AIN remains a great concept but the RBOCs aren’t ready to pull it off.
It’s going to
take a massive investment, a vision of what business
they want to be in and joint venturing
with current competitors (cable
TV, ALTS, cellular companies, etc.)
Who else is
positioned for success in AIN? MCI, Sprint and AT&T. All
have focused in on the future of
telephony — that means PCS and
personal phone numbers — and all possess some unique
pull it off.
MCI and AIN: MCI has focused on an infrastructure and
speaking, outstanding operational support systems (OSS), including
billing. How do you think they pulled off the "Friends and Family"
have also emerged as an innovator structuring an
industry consensus for PCS licensing. (Three
national licenses held
by consortia, no one player dominates, no local spectrum license if
you operate a cellular system and demerits in the application process
for major, regulated
LEC involvement in the consortium.) Also, they
are pushing early for end-user number
portability. This is a viable
Sprint and AIN: Sprint has it all
in some areas regarding full
services — long distance, cellular (the Centel merger) and
(United) service. If they selectively go after AIN in markets where
they have all
three forces, it’s going to be a good PCS/AIN approach.
AT&T: AT&T has it all
and more, too. It is the largest long distance
carrier, telecom manufacturer and has an option
to control the largest
cellular carrier, McCaw. I’ll bet AT&T is currently modifying its
and 5 ESS’s to come up with a super AIN/PCS/cellular/cable TV
switching network. If
they focus on AIN/PCS they, too will be uniquely
positioned. Also, you can expect to see
AT&T protecting its
intelligent network patents in 1993 (I know I said that before.)
you can’t get into AIN without violating their string of patents if
they stand up to
tests in the courts. After the advent of 800 number
portability, AT&T will have dropped a
lot of monopoly baggage, so stay
tuned. Finally, there’s one thing that will be facing all
IXCs — numbers. Once numbering issues are resolved (See
Insight, December 1992) and PCS spectrum is freed up,
the industry will be ready to integrate
PCS technology with AIN.
In summary regarding AIN, 1993 should be spent molding AIN as
you don’t have that focus, forget it. You will lose.
our first and last conference on ISDN in December, 1986,
TeleStrategies has consistently
pegged this service as a loser. So no
annual assessment of winners and losers would be
complete without a
discussion of ISDN.
The only thing wrong with our categorizing
ISDN as a loser is that CO
switch manufacturers have made a bundle using ISDN hype to sell
switches and software upgrades. Also, exhibit-based trade show
producers have made a bundle
from renting floor space to the RBOCs for
their giant booths. (To these vendors, ISDN means I
See Dollars Now.)
OK — for the thousandth time — why is ISDN a loser? It provides
near-term customer benefits. Sure, it’s elegant and there are market
niches such as
digital networking to Europe, DoD encrypted voice, etc.
But there is no "silver
bullet" application to justify the cost.
Residential users or small business users can
expect to invest
thousands of dollars to start up with ISDN (if they have to start from
scratch, i.e., they don’t already own a $10,000 high-end workstation).
And what could you get
today with ISDN? Nothing! To these folks, ISDN
means It Still Does Nothing or It Sends Data
Nowhere. Regarding big
business, private T-1 networks is where the action is today and
ATM/SONET will be the focus of 1993 planning. Again ISDN makes no
sense in this environment of
intra-company data. Regarding
inter-company data applications, the only significant market
Internet access, and again (See #1 — ATM/SONET) users expect "free"
service. So if you want to spend three years or more of your career
waiting for something to
happen in ISDN, you’ve found a winner.
Otherwise, ISDN is a loser.
All of us at
TeleStrategies wish you and yours a happy, healthy and
prosperous 1993. Get out there and pick
or stay with a winner!

worry about some egotistical sysadmin getting pissed off
when you hack his system, and having
him trace it back to your
local system? If you are like most hackers, even if you are
careful and telnet through another system first, it is still fairly
easy to trace back
through. Using the following program bellow you

where you are coming
from, let alone what account. This program, which has only been
tested on Sun OS, will allocate a port and set up a telnet gateway.
Because this program only
allocates a socket, in order for someone
to trace it back to you, the sysadmin of the system
it is set up on
would have to monitor the socket and see where the connection is
from, which is not very likely, the sysadmin already has
plenty to do. This is setup currently
to port 6969 and will run in
the background. Be sure to call it something that will not
