I started playing with Skype… A free VOIP service that works like an Instant Messaging program. Check this out:
Have you ever come across the profile of a gorgeous blonde. She seems cool. Her profile shows that she’s from NY, and enrolled as a film student at NYU. Her Profile sounds fun, and she’s incredilbly hot so you muster up the will to IM her and try to woo her with your charm… You talk for a while and things heat up a bit. You try to swap emails, but for some reason, she can’t get your emails and you can’t get hers…. Eventually, you realize that she’s a freak, though claiming she’s a woman, she begins to come on to you offering you her manhood.
Why is all this?
Skype Pranker v0.31 [Website]
You have unknowingly been talking with some other guy with the same viewpoint as you. Words in your conversation have been changed. Any time you said “Male”, “Guy”, or “Man” the guy you were chatting saw “Female”, “Girl” and “Woman”. Your email address has been altered so instead of seeing your email, the man at the other end saw a pre-determined email address that doesn’t actually exist. It’s the same email address that you saw when he (she?) gave you his (hers!).
Skype Pranker connects two chatters together, both assuming they’re chatting with the person who’s profile you set up. To make it better, Skype Pranker can be set up to replace words… When someone says “I’m a guy” the other person sees “I’m a girl”. It can even replace all email addresses with one that I want instead. And the best part is the program runs automatically! You just run it and sit back and watch…
I’ll post a few logs once I get a bunch… (The first 2 guys are still going at it after 15 mins trying to contact eachother on MSN or through email. lol)
