So, I’ve been looking for a new side project for a while, before finally settling on playing around with some phone APIs.  Not sure what else to do, I opted to make a tool for annoying people.  Try it now.

It’s quite simple, but effective none the less.  For a modest fee (starting  at $1.00), you can automate calling a friend with a random, annoying sound.  You can play around with things such as the caller ID to any valid phone number (to help make sure that they’ll answer the phone) or even scheduling the call for maximum annoyance.

Get using the cloud to annoy people!

Content split going forward

Sure, some could make the case that writing good code is an art form, like a form of poetry, blah blah blah. In general, though, people that came to this site for programming information didn’t care about the […]
