    returns for "only faulty parts". and $330. I wonder if they are selling any bridges, I'm in the market for one. Better yet, I may ask Detroit for theirs.

    I love this quote on their website.

    "There were, and still are, a lot of open source applications on the market, including many free tools. We decided they weren’t good enough, so we continued development of proprietary frameworks that formed the basis for all of our products" The also state they wrote their own Linux and Database.

    I don't know what "plastic" costs these days - but I must say, they have a nice case.

    3D printers are getting cheaper and cheaper. Maybe I should invest in one finally. LOL

    A $300.00 Raspberry Pi!!!! Is it gold plated? That's probably about $50.00 of hardware and the rest is (I assume) software?

    Commercial Asterisk PBX on the RasPi UPDATE
    Today we announce RAID capability.

    Purchase two of our PBX's and then follow these easy implementation steps!

    1. Turn first unit over
    2. Open RAID interface by unscrewing special orange poly "switch" (*see note below)
    3. Apply custom backup solution to bottom of 1st Commercial PBX
    4 Grasp 2nd Commercial PBX an apply an equally effective measure of the interface solution to the second "RAID" unit.
    5.Wait exactly 60 seconds before proceeding so that the units can soak in the firmware
    6. After 60 seconds press the two units together completing the interface and initialization proceedure.
    7. If there is ever an outage on the 1st Commercial PBX you may firmly grasp both units, quickly flip them over, transfer the plugs and eureka! Your up and running...

    I love my Pi too! I wonder how their "commercial support" is. Or if they just link here :)

    Brian: How about clustering? Do you have a similar solution?

    "Yes boss, our corporate pbx runs on 48 Pi's running in a cluster and built in a lego structure."

    Ward beat me to it.... the second magic ingredient that follows the RAID "SOLUTION" is multiphasic, multidimensional, snap on clustering adapters.

    Let our 5 year-olds build and design your enterprise PBX cluster for you! Cost: only 10 Jello puddings. Please note: we can't guarantee they won't end up eating the "RAID Solution" material during the assembly phase.

    That's what you call building blocks! I really am going to have to get one of those! It's given me an idea. How about hosted Rasp Pi telephony! You could fit a hell of a lot of these into even an 11U 1/4 rack. And they don't take much power right?

    They use about 5W of power. I have a few :) Incredible, XBMC, Tor and a spare.
