Anyone on here using Charter Telephone VOIP service? I've currently
got Verizon, but the wife hates it because our phone lines get flaky
all the time, esp when it rains.
So I'm thinking to save money and combine all my stuff onto Charter.
I've already got High Speed internet and regular old cable. Not wild
about Digital Cable since I'm happy with Tivo and I don't want yet
another set top box to have to deal with...
So, any horror stories about Charter Phone VOIP quality and service?

email me back if you can help out with anything.
0. Burgers, Hot Dogs, Buns
1. Cheese, Condiments

3. Utensils, Plates, Napkins
Also, if anyone has the following items we could use, that would be
5. A couple tables
6. Lawn chairs
(I have some coolers I can bring)
Beyond that, people can bring whatever BYOB, desserts, or other items

At tonight's meeting we'll have a discussion of current events in the
Linux/OSS world, Questions and Answers, etc. followed by our
traditional outing @ Tech Pizza.
The meeting room is in WPI's Morgan Hall (building 'H' on the campus
map ), down the hallway to the right of the dining hall entrance.
See you all there,

I'm thinking about switch over to CentOS from Gentoo at work for a few
reasons, two of which are the compile time and the ability to check packages
against GPG signatures. That being the case, I decided to convert my
desktop to Fedora so I can get my chops up on yum and the RedHat style
distros. it's going ok and I'm getting pretty good at figuring out where to
find things, and I'm even looking at writing an RPM or two where I need
stuff. However, I can't seem to get MP3, Mpeg1 or Mpeg2 playback working,
and I can't get adobe-flash to install via the nspluginwrapper. I've
googled, installed a bunch of packages that people suggested and even
checked what packages I have on my Gentoo system and installed some of those
but I'm stuck.
I have Adobe-Flash installed as well as nspluginwrapper, but the commands I
find online aren't wrapping the plugin. I installed libmpeg2 and libmpeg3
but I still can't play movies or mp3s. Any suggestions?
Would anyone at all be interested in helping build a new website? I
can't share too many details, as it will be commercial, but i need
preferably experience setting up a version control system (server).
Parts of this project will end up being open source (the chat server
for the web site already is). If anyone knows any of this, or even if
they feel they can lend a hand with part of it, It would be much
More details will be given in direct emails, provided a good faith
non-disclosure agreement is acceptable. No signing anything, just an
email stating you agree not to disclose the details of this project,
prior to its release.
This project will benefit the open source community if it is successful.
Thanks in advance,
I think we have a bad refrigerator here, possibly problems also compounded
by an inadequate elex cicsuit. Elex is owned & paid by landlord, who thinks
this is "no big deal" & "happens all the time No problem."
Maintence is not this building owner's favorite occupation. Person is on a
tight budget just like most of the rest of the world.
Lights go dim whenever dying refrigerator comes on. This unit rins apprix 40
minutes per every hour, even on cool days with minimum opening/closing.
I am concerned about longevity and function of my computers. power supplies,
modem and router (I own these & they are nice). One printer already fried
when Handyman shorted hot and cold elex together in the process of replacing
one light swich in kitchen. Hope never to see him again, he's not a bright
Is there some way to monitor the currrent on the elex line for several days
and record what's going on? If so, does someone have a monitoring device
that could be loaned and set up to do this?
I am in Woircester near Elm Park, & am a very good cook. Have decent chairs
& workspace with fast internet... could provide free beer & P1zzA or lunch
if needed during setup period.
