##If you think this is worthless your an idiot! There is so much more you can do that i will show you in the near future##

##Ex. of fun shit is having custom voice prompts like an epic business, blocking your ex from calling you and rediring the call to the rejection hotline, revealing blocked cid's so pranksters can be anonymous and plenty more.##

I installed trixbox tonight.  I'm having fun playing around with it so far.  Haven't set up an account with Flowroute yet, but probably will tomorrow.
