FreePBX SMS Messaging via

Today I share my success with configuring SMS messaging on FreePBX (running Asterisk) through Now I can text to and from other numbers using my landline SIP phones through my self-hosted PBX at home. If you don’t know what any of that means, then this probably isn’t for you.

What Gives?

What’s with all these companies wanting my review on a purchase or my opinion on a survey? I see no recompense for my time for all these thousands of papercuts. No, I will not review my purchase experience or take a survey on how to make you do your job better. Hint: if you want me to give you my time, please offer me something for it. I feel devalued with all of this crap.


You’re missing all the action over on my reviews site! Alleviate your FOMR (Fear of Missing Reviews)!

Text Away

Companies need to stop using SMS for 2-factor verification. Not only is it insecure, it’s just plain annoying.


Again, I can’t believe we have to go through this nonsense time shift again. Just get rid of it already.

Another Something New

I created another new website. This one is for reviewing things. My goal is to post one review per day.
