Cool, that. No big worries about legal status, I was simply curious.

That's basically what I was thinking of, a dial-in-only voicemail
setup. And if we can do it via Asterisk, then bonus!

It would be nice to have a free number. VoIP is still a young
industry, and if anyone wants in on Western PA, we'd start hearing
more about it. Until then, yeah, suckage. I wouldn't mind paying for a
number, as long as we don't exceed (say) twenty bucks a year. Ha ha

We've got several members who work in telephony. Let me float
something on the mailing list, see if anyone knows anything more about
VoIP in the Pittsburgh area. We could cross-promote with anyone who'd
want to work with us.
