So what you're saying is that you built yourself a Neuros LINK? (That's almost identical hardware)
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
The company regularly shows in the vendor's room at Origins in June. The tables seem to be of a quality worthy of the price tag, but I agree that it's too steep for most.
Looks like these would fit the bill:
I have at least one friend who set up Asterisk for their home system, and got SIP phones where hardware phones are needed, and put software phones and headsets on all the computers.
I've not played with the free (as in beer) solutions, but the semi-free business versions (Trixbox, Digium) do support a shared speed-dial list. Plus you gain intercom, paging, music on hold, etc.
Er... Sorry. It was the CA version that opened in 1967. The one in Florida was 1973.
I always get Disneyland and Disney World backwards.
The Florida version of the ride opened in March, 1967.
It seems like Apple has something against implementing any Xiph codec... FLAC and Vorbis support in iTunes is nonexistent, and even with the QuickTime plugin, iTunes still doesn't have proper tagging support. And now refusing to add Theora support in Safari?
Perhaps someone on the Xiph board did something to one of Apple's Media guys when they were kids or something?
Depends on your carrier. T-Mobile doesn't charge roaming in Hawaii, but they do in Alaska.
And did you ever notice how many commercials say "void in Alaska and Hawaii"? Or "In the continental US only"? Lots of business treat AK and HI differently because of the separation in geography.
And I know that when I signed up for Alltel 8 years ago, Alaska and Hawaii were not part of their coverage area. So apparently they didn't.
The inverted problem is when it gets reported on the wrong person because the SSN wasn't used as deliniation...
Like when a friend of mine had his son's bad credit card debt on his credit record, because they both had the same name and address and didn't look at the middle initials.
I presume Utilities required down payments in lieu of credit checks?
Did you pay cash for the cars, or were they pre-shunning of giving out SSN?
I'm honestly interested, as I would like to get to the point of the only credit I have being a mortgage and one credit card to run bills to. (The ability to use the credit card company as a mediator if you disagree with charges is appealing to me.)
It does seem rather inflexible on T-Mobile's part to not even allow someone to pay up front in order to skip the credit check.
While T-Mobile requires it too, you may want to RTFA. This is about Sprint, not T-Mobile.
The problem is it still has to work with their architecture.
Best analogy I have is that Verizon and Sprint are using Ethernet, and T-Mobile and AT&T are using 802.11g. One doesn't plug into the other, it has to be designed to use the network at hand. (Maybe 10-base-2 would be a better analogy than 802.11g?)
I presume you're in the continental US.
Go to Canada.
Go to Mexico.
Go to Hawaii.
Voila. Roaming charges.
So you have surrendered to the erosion of personal privacy, personal rights and personal integrity; I haven't and neither has the author of the post. You may be one of those willing to trade your rights for convenience. I too would refuse my Social Security number.
So you only use pre-paid cellular, do not use credit cards or take out loans, or any other transaction that requires interacting with a credit agency?
How's that working out for you? Seriously. Living a life without interacting with the credit agencies in this day and age is difficult, and I'd like to know what you have to give up (like discounts on phones in exchange for contracts, etc) in order to keep your SSN completely private. (Where Completely = You, your employer, your health insurer (if you have one) and the gov't.)
