Event: Friday August 27th, 2010 Part 1
Some intense examination of the requirement to tell people you are recording a call with the regulars while waiting for FS bridge to successfully UNmute it self. Note that ZipDX implemented the warning when you connect to the bridge if recording is on. Some reminders about *6 to toggle mute state.
The origin of “Look to your skies for a warning! Keep watching the skies!” Naw, I cut that part but I wanted to add the link in this post, because I didn’t get more info from FS about what to put here. Great movie, “The Thing from Another World”, featuring James Arness (“Gunsmoke”) as “The Thing”. One of the best science fiction pictures from the fifties, and one that helped define the genre.
From yet another world, (the Freeswitch bridge), Pacman sounds, and then belched forth the actual meat-space aural personna of the like of Brian West, Michael Collins, Anthony Minessale, Darren Schreiber and a few less-stellar voices…
From their site at Freeswitch.org: “Created in 2006 to fill the void left by proprietary commercial solutions. FreeSWITCH also provides a stable telephony platform on which many telephony applications can be developed using a wide range of free tools.
FreeSWITCH was originally designed and implemented by Anthony Minessale with the help of Brian West and Michael Jerris. All 3 are former developers of the popular Asterisk open source PBX. The project was initiated to focus on several design goals including modularity, cross-platform support, scalability and stability. Today, many more developers and users contribute to the project on a daily basis.”
