WASHINGTON, DC /Send2Press Newswire/ — DataOvertheWeb has launced a unique website for people desperate to disconnect themselves from unwanted telephone conversations is now available at The site features a selection of audio clips ranging from: ringing cell phones, barking dogs and crying babies to someone crashing into a fence, to be played in the background for people on the other end of the line.

“Try it and have some fun,” says David Schmucker, site creator and president of, a Microsoft Access development and training company. “I had the idea for a while and was encouraged by colleagues to put it together. Test a few sounds before you use them. Then, when you’re on the phone with someone and you have to find a way to end the conversation, go to the site, and click away. Be sure your computer’s speaker volume is on.”

Organized by “Office,” “Home” and “Oddball,” sound effects include fire drills, cell phone line static, honking horns, helicopter blades, buzzing flies, coughs that won’t quit, and a herd of cows passing by the window.

To repeat an effect for full effect, visitors can hit the link again and again. Visitors can sign up to be notified when new sounds are added, and can email Schmucker with their own ideas for sounds.
