The Temperature in Charlottetown is…

I’ve been doing some additional experimenting (read “procrastinating” or, more charitably, “long term R&D”) with Asterisk, the open source PBX that now answers my phone.

Tonight I added a “The temperature in Charlottetown is X degrees” line to the opening salvo, pulling the current temperature from The Old Farmer’s Almanac.

You can hear it for yourself at (902) 892-2556. Don’t worry, you can hang up the phone before you disturb me. Or you can ring through and say hello!

This is the most exciting thing I’ve discovered while reading Reinvented, I am loading Asterisk and diving into it.
Can you tell me, does it have touchtone menus?
Peter, I need to grok some Asterisk knowledge, may I buy you lunch and talk Asterisk some day, I’m back on PEI first week of February.

Your musings always spark ideas, muse on! and thanks.

Hey, I just tried that number, it sounds good. Where does the male and female voice come from?

I want to get Asterisk running, any advice?
I’m starting by putting Linux on my 800Mhz Celeron.
