Yeah, sorry 'bout that. Sometimes I misdial and connect to a random person instead of the CIA.

oh that's just the signal getting scrambled by your phone. Don't worry about it, it's only costing you 30$/minute.... rounded up.

Well, seeing as I used a public line and routed the call through a DHS ISP they won't know who to charge. So, they might charge you, or they might let the cost slip, depending on the policy of your phone provider.

You mean you don't have a blowhorn? Whenever a Canadian calls here I say, "hold on just a second", and BAMMM!!!!!!!

I wouldn't recommend that. The receiver might interpret it as the launch code and you might set off the nuke in NY.

If all you get are beeps, how do you know the call is coming from Canada?
