Update Spookcall closes after one week

image Spookcall, the UK’s first caller ID-spoofing service available to the general public, has decided to close less than one week after launch.

We reported the launch of the controversial service on Monday. It allowed anyone to impersonate any other phone number on a call recipient’s caller ID display. Spookcall also offered customers the ability to disguise their voice using software. It cost £5 for every 10 minutes of faked calling.

We have a daughter!

You may have noticed that there haven’t been any posts from me for a few days but the reason is that Tracy has just given birth to our gorgeous baby girl, Chloe.

They are both doing really well and came home yesterday. I’m enjoying looking after them both!

Chloe was born at 13:17 on Wednesday 11th June and weighed 7lb 3oz. I’d like to thank everyone in the Castleacre maternity ward at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Kings Lynn for looking after Tracy and Chloe.

Chloe was delivered by Caesarean Section which means that Tracy needs a bit of extra looking after so I may not be posting much for a little while.
