"Humanity’s history of mapping the cosmos is as long as our margin of error in explaining the universe is wide. We have been wrong about so much so often and so staunchly stubborn in admitting our errors. But we have also produced works of immeasurable beauty in giving form to our awe, however rooted in illusion, and continue to dwell in awe as we struggle to reconcile conflicting explanations and pursue the truth of our origins."

FreeSWITCH Advantage

Sounds like a great software development process.
 
FreeSWITCH Launches New Platform on 10th Anniversary

The first line of code in FreeSWITCH was drafted Spring of 2005, nearly a decade ago. 2015 marks the 10-year anniversary of the core code and the 9-year anniversary of the FreeSWITCH Public Community. Over the years, the core developers of the project have worked hard to provide top notch community support. FreeSWITCH Solutions, the consulting firm owned and operated by the core FreeSWITCH team, have been offering commercial support for many years for companies who take things to the next level and use FreeSWITCH to power their products.

Today we are proud to announce the unveiling of FreeSWITCH.com and the FreeSWITCH Advantage platform and support. Built on top of Debian Linux, FreeSWITCH Advantage takes our proven support services and couples it with a reliable operating system distribution and the result is a uniform packaged system tuned specifically for running FreeSWITCH. New releases will be simple to apply and any changes to the other packages on the system that have an impact on FreeSWITCH will be applied and managed automatically. Customers will have the best environment possible in place to run their systems as well as the support they need to ensure they stay up and running. The FreeSWITCH Advantage provides critical early-access to releases to make sure any problems encountered are addressed ASAP. All of the code used with FreeSWITCH Advantage is taken straight from the project's public git repository and packaged with testing and stability in mind so the community continues to benefit as a result.

FreeSWITCH Solutions also continues to offer the most comprehensive consulting services available with the experience and knowledge to create almost anything imaginable that pertains to interfacing with FreeSWITCH.

"Fewer and fewer people believe nowadays. It’s possible that in a generation, there simply won’t be religion across Europe and large sections of North America, Australia, and Asia. That’s not necessarily a problem — but it’s worth thinking about why people made up religion in the first place."

I'm a pantheistic atheist. Nature is a fine substitute for "God." When people ask me if I believe in a "higher power," I just tell them that I believe in the universe and the laws of physics lol.

"Access to tenders is restricted to Premium members only."
Co-founder of OpenTenders Madoda Khuzwayo estimates that there are as much as R1.3-trillion worth of tenders being procured by government entities every year. However staggering and wonderful that figure may sound, a honey pot of this magnitude does not remain untainted.
