ex machina

asterisk, vocal, sip, ser and jabber. oh my.

it's amazing, when you really stop and think about it, that it's possible - with the help of a little elbow grease - to get a full-featured pbx running on commodity hardware thanks to asterisk :

"To provide a brief introduction to Asterisk's capabilities, I will show an example that creates a very simple PBX with two extensions and voicemail on each. There will be no external connectivity to this PBX; we will simply be able to call from one line to the other. This would allow, as an example, two users to be in separate parts of the country but they could ring each other's desk phones. If the called party was unavailable, voicemail could be left."

i've heard of people using asterisk as a "feature server" for existing voip installs powered by vocal or iptel's SIP Express Router [ which also features jabber integration. ]

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
