Dial 0800 Whatever
It's thursday and rainy and I'm bored.
I really cannot come up with anything useful to do. Well I can think
of a few things, but they are no fun whatsoever. My mind gently drifts
off. I begin wondering how those fancy words in phone numbers come to
be. Dial 0800-JESUS-SAVES!
Would there be a fancy word for my
phone number as well?
So I get the ispell
wordlist and hack a little Perl
script. Here is the result. Enter a phone number in the box below (no
spaces, only digits allowed). You will see a list of matching
words. Most of them will be nonsence - the script will blissfully show
that each digit 2
can successfully be replaced by the word
, and each 4
. I can't help it either, 'a'
and 'I' are in the wordlist and the script is mechanically dumb.
Try it below if you fancy. E.g., if your phone number contains
then you will see messy
in the shown list. But
