USB drive in dmesg, lsusb, but not in lsblk
This was puzzling me for awhile. Found the answer on the arch linux wiki which is to do a reboot. Apparently if there is skew between the latest kernel and the running kernel, things won't work. After a reboot it moutned find using MTD stuff.

OBITalk dashboard that allows for simple setup. I now have setup 2 VOIP providers - Vestalink and Google Voice. 

Strictly speaking no real need for both of them but about 1 year back Google Voice said they were going to no longer support the XMPP protocol that OBI uses to talk to GV. Because of that I went out and signed up for Vestalink. Then, as luck would have it, GV changed their stance. So now I have two providers. 

The default one I can just dial the 10 numbers or I can dial **1 and the 10 numbers. For GV I can dial **2 and the 10 numbers.

Install Pipelight on Fedora 21

Some Helpful Links - but there's a caveat - stay away from the DarkPlayer Pipelight Repo - it will cause you to descend into dependency hell!
