“Hello LiveJournal friends! This is a phone post and, um, I don't really have anything to say! But I'll just keep talking. Why not? I kinda just want to see how big these files can get since we'll probably be hosting hundreds of thousands of them shortly here, but I think we have a couple hundred gig free — or 700 or so — so not a problem.

Blah ba-blah blah.

I wonder if people are gonna record mp3s, like over their crappy speakers over their cell phones and then the recording industry will be like “they have illegal music played through a cell phone going over VoIP reencoded as an MP3 in mono.” It's pretty much analog. Sounds like shit.

Uhh, bye!”

I'm just waiting to announce it tomorrow and wait for our one phonepost server to die. But it'll be interesting to watch.

Dude!
I am sitting in an air port in Copenhagen and my mind is swimming at the idea of seeing where in my transatlantic flight that I can make posts :)

There is no way you are awake... just guess I will have to wait...

Heh, I'd like to see the MRTG graphs of that server (and your VoIP box) once the announcement is made.
