Need Help With Phone Pranksters

I am hoping someone on this group can help me figure out a way to deal
with some phone pranksters (kids) who have been leaving obscene messages
on my answering machine / voice mail. I have caller ID (but they are
naturally coming in as anonymous calls), and I just signed up for call
return on a trial basis. Is there any way I can find out what number
these calls are being made from? Anyone got any other good suggestions?


After installing WordPerfect 5.1 on our network, I created a startup
batch file which would first change to the individual user's private
directory (specified in his/her logon profile); however, I found that
WP would not accept only a drive letter as a default path -- it would
append the default directory if none was specified. Since I needed to
set the default to drive G: (no path) so that it would default to the
user's private directory on this drive, I first set it to G:\, then
removed the backslash with a binary editor.
