Telephone issues

2004.10.17

Now that most of the boats at my club are hauled out, I have moved to a mooring closer to the clubhouse. This provides a shorter walk to the showers (now that the weather is getting less pleasant), to the tender, and an internet signal strong enough to be usable in my cabin.

So far, I have been unable to reproduce my previous success making my internet telephony box work. All of the settings on all the relevant hardware (over which I have any control) are the same. I seem to have adequate bandwidth, and reasonably low latency (and a sufficiently non-standard setup to render any technical support from the service provider completely useless)

If the internet telephony remains unreliable, I will abandon it, and my prepaid cellphone in favour of a cellphone with a proper subscription.

At this point, I’d like to believe that my continually referring people to my website for contact information, will prevent the resulting changes in phone number from being too problematic. I’d like to believe this, but I don’t.
