Hi - are you able to make outgoing SIP2SIP calls using GVoice?
I have plenty of SIP#'s (ostel,iptel,antisip,... all provide them) but have yet to figure out a way (from android or linux cli) to make a sip2sip call via GVoice.
My GV# forwards nicely to my devices that have an app assoc'd to a (ipkall) DID# - but not solely a SIP#

Any secrets you can share?

Even if the Desktop has transformed itself into a (virtual desktop) "Workspace", I want the OS on my laptop, my pad, my phone....

I want it running E17, or another light DM/WM
I want it to run my android/PlayStore stuff
sandboxed in a container or a VM.

I want it to run encryped out of the box:
Selinux, shorewall, gpg email, encrypted FS,
TOR/I2P browsing.....

To Linus: met you at UNH in 93or94; what a ride
it's been.

More please, thank-you

This is what I have done for my dynamicIP issue:

Register a subdomain with or or

Next goto your real domain registrar or edit your own DNS server and create a CNAME for a subdomain that points to what you registered.
e.g. ->

Just be aware that it has no rDNS.

Next, create a script that updates your IP whenever you notice it changes using this script:

So, for my purposes: I heavily restrict ssh on my C5 servers to specific domains/IPs using shorewall.
Whenever my IP would change i risked getting locked out and had to resort to a jump host.
Now, instead I have a shorewall param that sets some var to and a rule that permits ssh using that var.

Then just run a cronjob to update the IPaddress on a regular basis.

Hope this helps.

I know you probably won't see it, but it is entirely the Financial Industry's fault; that
includes Investment Banks or those that act like

Here's the back-story; it starts with time-shares.
Do a google search on "David Siegel"
Sure, it was about making money; but it was more
about "everyman's" ability to 'own' a vacation

Take the results of the time-share industry,
commoditize it even more, turn the buyers into
profit-centers, sell that to the newly budding "investment" society and you get Wall Street
lobbiests and lawyers crafting both the opinions
and laws the bought-off politicans create.

It's pretty easy for the willing get chumped, but
this package was far to toxic by half. Pure greed.

I mostly lurk and seldom reply to anon.
But I'm compelled to say
Well Spoke, and thanks for the forethought.

Perl was the reason I started wrapping my brain around regular expressions. Later in the 90's I build complex backends using cgilib. Tried a few frameworks like mason..... I became a perlOphite for all the sentiments you expressed so well.

The ease of cpan, of quickly manipulating DBI tables, so many reasons why it, and its attitude,
always works for me. Off a CLI, wrapped up in a shell script, part of a larger pipe; I just cannot imagine using another interpreter as painlessly.

Specially for admin stuff and my personal libs of
files/data which require maintaining.

That said, were I a manager today I'd see the
sense in concluding that python, ruby, a compiled
lang, .... would have a better outcome from the
devs; despite my personal aversion for each of them. Enforcing Delimiters does not good code guarantee and makes editing others' code in vi more tedious (or macro'd). Maybe if I were an IDE
type of guy.

I found my time spent adopting/trying/using rails/passenger/gems/mongrel less warm-n-fuzzy
than squating in the cpan/perlmonkworld camp

I feel Perl epotimizes the LAMP stack, the finishing touch of what, for me, was a process
(mentioned earlier) of learning OS as much as CS
and appreciating the many ways to do one thing.

But not all programmers feel drawn to broader systems and from that narrower perspective more structure makes infinitely more sense.

For those who might say perl is a hackers language
I would heartily agree. Its where it's genius lies.

Coincidentally enough, this weeks' episode of "Hannibal" introduced the concept of "brain-driving" as using light/sound to induce a state of epilepsy. Meme's been around (like uv/bbeats...) awhile but 1st i heard it called that.

Using your comment to go on record with my own; my feeling on capital punishment isn't so much about rehabilitation vs vengence as much as it is the suffering induce in our methods of killing.

FFS, it would be cheaper and kinder to put me in front of a firing squad, give me the piece and I'd do myself first. Why state murder can't follow the same tack as (phys) assisted suicide. A tank of helium and the cost of a plastic bag.

Killing anything should reflect the dignity and heart of a society as much as those it condemns to death row.
