in reply to At home I most often use

I have used VoIP for almost a year now. A few weeks ago, I decided that I should probably hook it up to the house wiring so we could plug in a phone anywhere. My wife really isn't in a position to go running after a ringing phone at the moment. It worked great except you couldn't hang up.

I jumped on the net to figure out what I was doing wrong. Apparently, it is paramount to disconnect the telco from your home before hooking up your VoIP to the house wiring (which I didn't) as it could "blow up". Hrmmm - I disconnect the telco and no change. Hrmmm - these spliced wires don't look quite right. What happens if I .... bingo. One of the previous owners of the house had done a little of their own wiring and had created a circular loopback. Lesson learned - wife happy.

Cheers - L~R

    VoIP

    We got rid of the telco by the end of February, so now it's VoIP only. It's very cheap, good voice quality (better than the telco most of the time), but sometimes just a little unreliable.

    Cheers, Sören

[Corion]: Discipulus++ # being well is like being earnest
[marto]: hopefully next year I'll be in a position to go to Perly things in Europe :)
[Corion]: Maybe I'll use the Real Jekyll a bit to get a feel for how it actually works, and to get annoyed by it ;)
[Corion]: marto: That would be cool :) There is no kids care at Perly events unfortunately, so it's not entirely family friendly
[Corion]: I think I should define a set of (say) five projects through which I rotate from time to time, just to prevent myself from being bored/annoyed by the problems they get stuck in ;)
[marto]: Corion, not bringing the kids would make it ideal :P
[marto]: a suggestion, have one project in the list that isn't programming/perl related
[Corion]: marto: Yeah, things are more parent-friendly the way they are ;))
[marto]: some hardware/makey thing
[Corion]: marto: Ah, I'm currently drifting to that again, over"painting" (well with Inkscape) one of my photographs and thinking about vectorizing some other images ...
