December 7th 2008: Nothing.

There is nothing new. All of this will be moved to Cardhouse at some indeterminate point for archiving, and this domain will be sold to a tiny mouse who skitters on the keys and makes random html files. It's like an art project.

September 1st 2007: New Something.

There were two different people interested in taking over control of Phoneswarm but then they got scared and ran away or something. I thought about it for awhile then I thought about it some more and maybe something will happen in a few months that will be perhaps even more interesting on this very site but I'm not promising anything at this point.

November 27th 2006: New owner.

That's right, someone else has stepped up to the plate and wants to continue the Phoneswarm Experience. It's going to take a little while to make the hand-off, so please be patient. Again, thanks for all the love and letters and such. It was a nice thing to do. Cardhouse Ro-bot.

November 16th 2006: The line is dead.

It ends here. I have other fish to fry. I can't serve up a new phone every week, what with every 20 phone numbers I've grabbed ending up with a 19:1 mortality rate. If you think you can do it, you're welcome to try, I'll point to your site from here and everything.

Thanks for the ride, all y'all made it worth the while.

Tuesday, October 31st, 2006.

Called at 11:17AM PST. Neither of the guys in the yellow coats bothered to pick up.

Perhaps a launch/land schedule of Vessel "Golden Bear" would make for some good calls?

I am smacking my forehead, this is something that should have been obvious. Blue & Gold no longer goes to Alcatraz Island, but I think they still dock in the same place (Pier 39) for bay cruises. It probably takes 15 minutes to load/unload, since they also take photos of everyone -- so maybe subtract 20 minutes from each posted time to achieve optimum pickupability.

Weekdays (depart Pier 39): 10:45am, 12:00pm, 1:15pm, 2:30pm, 4:00pm.

Weekends (depart Pier 39): 10:00am, 10:45am, 11:30am, 12:00pm, 12:45pm, 1:15pm, 2:00pm, 2:30pm, 3:15pm, 4:00pm, 4:30pm.
