Hi Stefano and all,

If one person can't join we should look for other options. The other 
phone server that we have you can call on a Plain Old Telephone System 
(POTS) landline number in the Netherlands. As it is a service donated to 
the Free Knowledge Institute we have less control and so far haven't got 
external SIP access.

Here you go:
call +31.88.0027.314
Password: 4123

Now I imagine there are people who may find it expensive to call to the 
Netherlands. If so, please follow the instructions regarding SIP and get 
yourself an account at a service like freecall.com. That way you pay 0 
(zero) cents per minute (!). In case of freecall, they do require to buy 
an initial amount of credit (10 Euro i think).

Note that of course it is not my intention to make any advertising for a 
specific company. Please feel free to use whatever service you like. We 
haven't found any cheaper one yet ;-) The oldfashioned telecom operators 
also work fine (but may charge you an arm and leg for international calls).

Hope this helps!
