S.O.B. Caller ID Generator
by The Fixer
© 2009 Whirlwind Software
Current Version: 1.9.4
New for 1.9.4 (2009/06/14):
Added command-line version SOBCon. This allows you to use S.O.B. from a batch file. All settings and registration info from the GUI version are recognized in the command line program.
OK, you won't notice this, but in the 8 years since we released 1.0, Whirlwind has developed a Manual of Style and a set of Best Current Practices, and much work has been done to bring SOB's source in line with our current guidelines. What this will mean to you in the future is faster response to bug reports and feature requests, as we no longer have to change mental gears to our early code models in order to do maintenance.
New for 1.9.2 (2003/07/26):
Access Violation error at startup fixed
Most CIDCW parameters (frequency and duration) are now configurable. Screenshot!
Tweaked default signaling parameters for better compatibility
New for 1.9.1 (2003/05/22):
Now retains settings in Registered mode
Markout feature added - this will improve compatibility with some problem Caller ID boxes.
Waveform amplitude (volume) now defaults to 127 (full volume)
Installer compiler upgraded - should be more XP friendly now.
New for 1.9 (2003/02/01):
Completely redesigned interface
Expanded Help File
The interface for version 2.0 has been completed and released in this version, but since the 2.0 functionality (TAPI output) is not ready yet, this version remains part of the 1.x family.
New for 1.2 Revision B Build 1 (2002/07/30):
Remaining Registration Key issues fixed
Minor installer issues fixed
Added DeSOB Registry Entry Remover for the paranoid!
New for 1.2 Revision A Build 3 (2002/07/09):
Remaining SDMF bugs squashed
Couldn't find its own helpfile! Ugh. Fixed.
Used to aggressively filter "bad" characters. That is now an option that defaults off.
Didn't recognize some registration codes. Now recognizes all (real ones).
New for 1.2 (2002/07/06):
Intermittent Start/Stop bit inversion fixed
MDMF formatting bugs fixed
CWCID timing optimized
Amplitude of CAS tone is always 63 or less regardless of amplitude setting due to ludicrous clipping
New configuration option: force uppercase name
Help file now in Windows Help format and includes a diagram for a simple line interface
S.O.B. can now be installed and uninstalled like a "real" app ;-)
