I have been lurking for years on the email list.  18 years as a Cub 
Scout leader with meeting on Thursday nights :-).  The few times you 
wandered off Thursdays conflicted with other meetings.

I would like to use VoIP on a FreeBSD box as well.  I am not 100% 
comfortable putting Asterix/FreeSwitch on my Asus 500gp router running 
TomatoUSB (Linux based).  I run 1 (soon to be 2) low power FreeBSD 
machines on Via C7 processors.  Been thinking of FreeSwitch on the one 
doing backup duties.  The first had hardware problems but I managed to 
get it back up and running but not before I put together a new one.  1st 
order of business is to setup the new one with ZFS then migrate the 
services from the UFS old one before giving the old one a ZFS upgrade on 
new disks.  Then I would like to get my VoIP line working somehow on the 
old one which will do ZFS stream replication.

I cut my teeth on a PDP-44 running Unix System 7 way before using that 
new fangled Linux :-).  I have fond memories of running a VAX 780 with 
BSD 4.1, 4.2 and 4.4 and I still prefer BSD for servers.  I have been 
looking at PCBSD to replace my Fedora workstation -- could not get the 
liveCD working on the workstation (only a short attempt but that was the 
time available).

I would be interested in working together on VoIP for FreeBSD if only by

I have a few boxes that run an embedded linux that handles VoIP calls and I was thinking it would be interesting to see if it could be done with an embedded BSD, kind of like pfsense for firewalls.
