Do you spend endless hours going to different places on the internet?

Well guess what...

  • Code 18: Used by tech support to disguise when they’re calling a technical issue user-caused.

  • Code ID-10-T: Far less PC version of the above code. (Look carefully at the letters and numbers...see a word forming?)

  • Digital Jewelry: Any kind of hi-tech stuff  one would wear. This would also include iPhones, iPods, BlackBerries, Cell Phones...etc...
