I’m debating buying a DID solely for this blog. Hate mail is fun.. but with hate voicemail there can be no mistake about tone. I’m not worried about threats; the FBI can handle those nicely.
Maybe I should only offer a SIP URI? No cost incurred, but then only the savvy would call?
I have been discussing some inventive uses for IVR with an online friend. He started it, I improved it and so began an arms race of IVR hackery. More on that soon.. or once the ITSP works out the kinks
edit: now possible to reach me

read the ‘hidden’ FAQ before it’s gone
My install is freer than expected
a slightly older reference to the free offering much earlier in its development 
edit: thanks to epocrates.com I had to kill firefox so we’ll never know how far above 100% aretta will reach

Feb 16 2010, Verizon Wireless and Skype join forces to create a global mobile calling community
make and receive unlimited Skype-to-Skype voice calls to any Skype user around the globe on America’s most reliable wireless network [Until verizon pushes a PRL that makes using your handset in your house nearly impossible.. thankfully: NAM2]
delightfully: purely theoretical. needs testing. need more free time. d’oh
“free” skype calls will incur verizon’s thirty dollar a month upgrade penalty for “smart” phones.
me: how can I opt out of your $30/mo upgrade penalty for services I shall NEVER use?
verizon: the $30/mo fee is for your convenience
me: how is paying your $30/mo upgrade penalty for something I shall NEVER use convenient for ME?
verizon: if you didn’t have the unlimited data plan you would have to pay fees per megabyte that would quickly become excessive
me: great how do I get that?
verzion: get what?
me: the option to be billed excessively per megabyte?
verizon: now we have the unlimited data plan for thirty dollars a month; otherwise you would have to pay for megabyte usage
me: alright how do I pay for megabyte usage?
verizon: you won’t have to with our convenient unlimited data package
me: I don’t want to pay your thirty dollars a month upgrade penalty for something I won’t EVER be using. I would rather pay for megabyte usage… especially as I’ll be using zero megabytes every month. How much will it cost to use ZERO megabytes of data a month?
verizon: if you weren’t using data you would still have the protection of the $30/mo unlimited data plan
[actual verizon “reasoning”]
verizon: in case someone else picked up your phone and connected to the internet…..
repeat ad nasuem
