Funny you should mention that... Christian Schaller set one up for the
board a couple of months back. It hasn't gotten much of a run-out yet,

Ubuntu) at €80, which is a bit outside the IT budget at the moment.
But now might be the time to start.
Given the relative expense of conference calling. The Foundation could
get some hardware SIP phones sponsored (apparently the simple ones are
practically worthless) for board members and such, so that they don't
use a softphone and headphones (unless of course, they want to).

I agree moving to voip is a logical step - the only issue so far has
