::Notes from e5::
I have spent a bit of time scanning the 512 (Austin) area code, and have
found one of the test prefixes: 485. This prefix is used by Time Warner
Communications. The following is a brief scan of it (note that this is
scanned from inside Austin, and I haven't tried it from outside).
