Default Artificial Heart Battery replacement


-m wrote in message
...
I got a call on my answering machine on Tuesday. It said "Mr.
_my_name_, your artificial heart battery must be replaced within three
days, call 1-800-xxx-xxxx. Everytime I call I get a message saying I
got an incorrect number. I have been getting a lot of dizzy spells
lately, so I carefully programmed the number into my direct dialer.
When I tried again I still get that error message. I am too tired to
keep calling it. What should i do


Go to Radio Shack?

And while you're at it have also your brain replaced, anything will do
better...

You forgot the disclaimer IANADr.

BTW, he can always run around with an extension cord. Just fill the
bathtub with water and jump in and that should take care of the problem.

I's probably just a line fault, keep trying for a few days, I'm sure
they'll have it fixed by the end of next week.

Buy an AC adapter at Radio Shack. They have AC adapters to fit everything.

Maybe he could buy some old transistors on Ebay?
Then he could run the thing at reduced voltage.

Do you even have an artificial heart?
N: Ignore message
Y: Consult doctor that installed it.

That's exactly the problem. I dont have an artificial heart, never

Even if I call every phone number that is one digit off from mine,
there would be over 10,000 possible numbers to call, and if the area
code is wrong, that means it could be almost any person on
earth....... I am wondering if there is a way to make this computer
auto-dial every one of these numbers and leave a message telling
everyone that their battery needs to be replaced in their artificial
heart. Worse yet, this guy may only have a few hours left to live,
and I am exhausted from the 3217 calls I made so far.


yes, those programs exist, but it's slightly illegal, slightly as in, let
the poor sap die. although, you could build a colour box and set up a
laptop down at the nearest phone booth, you need the phone booth to make
sure nobody finds out it was you, and the colour box to make the calls
free. you might even want to get friends involved, give them a block of
numbers to call, then wait for them to do the bulk of the dirty work.
you'll have to move around to make sure the phone companies don't track
you down, they can get rather annoyed at the use of colour boxes, even for
a good cause.
as an alternative, you could set up a non profit organisation with the
direct goal of making sure this person gets his warning, but you'll have
to do it quick.

Methinks ranger be the prankster... anyone with a pacemaker, or more,
knows the drill on checking battery, sending data via your home phone,
etc. No one in that condition would be caught off-guard by such a
call.
