uppsala calling

i picked up a grandstream budgetone 101 to use with the sip (voip) server we have set up at work. i just plugged in the server, username, and password info, and now i can talk with my colleagues all over the world, without long distance charges. pretty nifty. (well, it will be more nifty once more of said colleagues also get their hands on voip phones, or headsets with a softphone.)

i do wish it was a dual-line phone that handle pots in addition to voip.

when i’m bored, i can dial the echo server number and talk to myself via a server in sweden, which has a pleasant perversity to it.
