  2. Stuff My Free Concierge Has Done

    So I have a Visa Infinite credit card. One of the perks it provides is concierge service. An outside company is paid to take requests (by web, email, or phone) and to fulfill them as best as they can given a few rules. It was only recently that a friend (a guy named Sean Kelly) reminded me that my card has this perk and I’ve now starting thing of stuff I can use it for. This blog post aims to keep track of stuff I’ve asked them to do and the end result. …

  4. WebRTC: Let me get right on that!

    The following is a paid advertisement for… hey wait a minute no it’s not. This is an IRC log from #asterisk which echoes my own (current) thoughts on WebRTC. …


  5. Private Cloud Sync Software On The Road

    This is a follow-up to my previous post about private cloud sync software. I would advise you to read it here first before reading this.


  6. Private Cloud Sync Software

    I’ve been gradually bumping up my use of encryption and removing my dependence on public cloud services over the past few months. I use an encrypted VPN to my home when I’m out and about, I host my own mail and have it strongly prefer encryption, and I use browser extensions to make sure that encryption is used as often as it can.

  7. Realtime: I love to hate you.

This gives this system its name, realtime. It allows you to make changes in a database in realtime and have them instantly reflected within Asterisk. …


  8. PJSIP Configuration: Don't hate me!

    I’ve had numerous people bring up the new PJSIP configuration and scream bloody murder at how different it is. Whether it’s good or bad is certainly open to interpretation (hey look, my blog has no comment system… for once I think that actually makes me happy ;) but there are legitimate reasons for the way it is right now. …


  9. Documentation: There's never enough.

    When it comes to Asterisk one of the complaints that I’ve seen over the years is that the documentation sucks or that it isn’t good enough. I’d like to show how far we’ve come as a project. …


  10. Asterisk Media Take 2: A focus on performance.

    I’ve recently started working on a project for Asterisk to improve performance when it comes to media. Media is an absolute criticial part of the system and it has to be as efficient as possible. The core of this work right now is focusing on how we represent media formats, how they exist within the system, and how they are compared. …
