I have just witnessed something that I feel is on the same level as the invention of the wheel!
Free World Dialup has set me up with voicemail. So, if you want to speak your mind, and don’t feel comfortable speaking with me, call me at 249395 (that’s my FWD number), and leave a message. I hope to hear from everyone soon.
w00t! Oh, also, traffic and weather for nYc is channel 211. Checkout the new stuff.
I have always though that VoIP and SIP were the shit. Furthermore, Bluetooth has been known to hold my attention for long periods of time (20 minutes). Now, I have experienced the ultimate convergance of divergences! It’s call Free World Dialup (FWD).
Ok, first, I installed a Belkin Bluetooth USB dongle. Then I paired up my Sony/Ericsson HBH-30 wireless Bluetooth headset. Now I can use the headset like a wired headset on my PC (or desktop speakers and a mic). The next step was to have a reason to talk on the headset.
Nate clued me into FWD. After a few minutes, I was SIP’ing my way around the net (well, to the test # at FWD) via Windows Messenger. FWD gives you a .reg file that sets up Windows Messenger to use them as the SIP proxy for phone calls. I attempted to install Xten X-Lite, but it didn’t work. Oh well.
Now, all I need is people to talk to. If anyone gets up and running with FWD, I’m 249395.
