That mischevous modem
shady computer users soon discovered that they could force their computer to pipe OTHER tones through the modem, such as those AT&T used to open up secured phone lines, allow free long-distance calls, make quarters pop out of public phones, and other tones. These days, digital technology has made this capability a thing of the past, but at the time, the 1660 was a favorite with "Phreakers" and "Hackers".

"So I go over to Al's house and I'm totally blown away," Richard remembers. "He had this basement... he had equipment absolutely everywhere." Richard was particularly impressed by Diamond's telephonic infrastructure: "I thought I was good because I had two [phone lines]... but he had maybe 7 or 8 phone lines back then. He had equipment to play recordings. This was before you could buy your own answering machine... he had built equipment where he could put a regular tape recording on the line and people could call in and hear a recording, and he could play that recording to multiple lines at once.
