The Government needs to STOP surveilling everyday citizens.  PERIOD.
Read our letter to U.S. House and Senate leadership on how our surveillance laws should be changed. Then add your name to show your support. #United4NSAReform

EO 12333 must GO.  
The NSA relies on Executive Order 12333 to engage in mass surveillance of people around the world. But most people have never even heard of this presidential order. It’s time to respect the privacy rights of innocent people, regardless of their nationality. Tell Obama: amend Executive Order 12333 to prohibit mass surveillance.

Not sure -- I couldn't get it to pick up the SIP code, it's not a problem
with the setup, but possibly that used phone

Beat an ObiHai 202, Raspberry Pi B+ into submission to do GoogleVoice (using my +Sprint numbers) and CNAM (Caller ID Name) lookup using Asteridex and a script to grab my Google Contacts. 

Very Cool. #Obihai #Asterisk  #incrediblepbx   #raspberrypi
