Home computer used for a production environment?  Wow.. I'm speechless.

If just showing phone numbers only and no other information, what's the
point since there are already several other white and yellow pages on the
net?  There's even a reverse number look-up too.  There's also a well known
paid service for getting a DB of contacts (name, address, phone numbers of
persons and businesses).  Just out of curiosity, what is it that your boss
intend to offer that would stand out for already existing services?  I doubt
anyone would be sane enough to sit there and just browse through phone
numbers only.  Even if it does show the owner's name of the registered
number, I highly doubt anyone sane would browse unless you provide some kind
of filter/search.

Good luck, that's a LOT of reading.  I'd estimate that's about 3k+ pages of
reading. :)
