Lets say I would like to reproduce this without modifying my phone. Would it be possible to make an external box with the extra two buttons to implement the same functionality?


Of course it is possible, but you have to add a circuit to simulate a telephone line with its signals and voltages.

Hi Linus, I don't think the microphone is being used? Speech recognition sounds a bit boring. One could whistle commands down it as a nod to phreaking. Or how about whistling a melody to select a matching chiptune. :-)

I thought the video could have described the Pi's connections to the phone a bit more.

A Raspberry Pi doesn't have any ADC to connect the microphone. You have to add an ADC... or use a Parallax Propeller 2 microcontroller instead: it has (a lot of... =64) excellent DACs and good ADCs and there are SID and 6502 emulators for it.

A case against syntax highlighting

If you are color-challenged (as the choice of theme suggests) then syntax coloring won't be of much help, maybe even a hindrance.

Try asking around for a more appealing theme.

Or just stick with white on black if that works best for you.

Hello, Linus. I recently watched your talk 'Poetry for Bugs' and I found it electrifying and quite moving. My sincerest thanks for crafting it and making it available online.
