The last few days have been good. Last Thursday, I met up with Mark and Dermot, (two friends I was in school with) who are both back from the UK (where they are both doing postgrads) for Christmas. Last minute shopping turned into anecdotes over drinks, followed by more drinks and bumping into all sorts of people I know from college, proving the world is very small indeed.
After a bit of hassle, I eventually got my head around the problems I kept encountering using the Asterisk port, I eventually worked out why I couldn’t get SIP clients to register and dial each other properly – the codec, protocol and action modules weren’t loading properly.
Shortly after this revation this afternoon, I had Asterisk trunking my calls over IAX2 to Blue Face. Now everything works except for incoming phone calls, which I think is a glitch at the Blue Face end. Horray! One less thing to do, particularly a rather large, distracting thing which has sometimes (well, often) been more appealing than doing my project and other college work…
Now, since I’m off to Venice as of tomorrow, I’m officially inncommunicado as of noon tomorrow until the 3rd of January… 🙂
