Hi Wouter

I have installed Blink for mac and have inputted my voipcheap.co.uk details (another freecall/betamax clone)

i can use it to call POTS and mobiles, and even receive calls back via a direct number i got from voipcheap some time ago, but when i try to test the 880@ it says it cannot find it

any hints?

i cannot really make it properly for the whole meeting (maybe sneakily listen via headphones), but will try to use the etherpad live

As it is a service donated to the Free Knowledge Institute we have less control and so far haven't got external SIP access.

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).
