Six-a-phone [Apr. 5th, 2006|03:35 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
[Tags|, , ]

With our new public Asterisk server, Jonathan Steinert (hachi) set up a phone in the office which goes straight to the voice post gateway, without dialing.

I then rigged that up to automatically post to sixaphone when you hit just "#" (from the office context) as your number, bypassing all the auth. Also bypassing all the annoying options, so it's always public. And Frank the Goat always appreciates our calls, not just a quarter of the time like all you people.

So yeah, best podcast ever:

For people in the office:
-- pick up the phone next to Jonathan/Sippey
-- wait for "Enter your authorized phone number...." and any time after the word "Enter", press #.
-- record.
-- press #.

Best idea evar. I'm listening to the Brad vs. Brad podcast right now...

Well, it's not really "vs", but "Brad on Brad" sounds wrong.

Or does it sound a little too right?

Hey, did you ever get Public Voicepost Interweb Radio working right?

Actually I forgot all about it. But we're using Xen a ton now so it'd be easy for us to instantiate a new machine for it. Thanks for the reminder.

Sweet. When I get home I need to fix the Asterisk server.

Our office phone system is ghetto... not sure we can hack it at all without paying for a $10,000 per-port VoIP "solution".

We can probably buy more of those Analog IAX2 adapters, though, and more analog phones.

Aww, well screw that then. I just like the idea of picking up a phone, talking, hanging up, and there's my voice post.

I'll talk to Jason. :-)

Maybe we can route an extension to an analog phone, which then does IAX via the adapter.
