Reflections from a Swede in Norway.

Here you will find my small graffiti board where I write about things I come to think about.

In my blog, I write about the general unfairness of life, about spam mail, vintage computers, board games, Norwegians, current and not-so-current affairs, technology and whatever else occurs to me — in other words, a glorious mess. All opinion expressed here are of course my own, and all similarities with any living people is of course intentional.

Call me for free

Published: Sunday 2004-05-23.

As I mentioned earlier, I am now placing my phone calls over the Internet. Yesterday, I noticed that my operator, Telio, has a peering agreement with Free World Dialup, which means that everyone using that service can call Telio customers for free over the Internet. All you need to do is to download one of the free or gratis software that support or FWD and dial **856 followed by my (or any other Telio subscriber’s) phone number.

I tested by installing dialling software on my laptop, and I did manage to call my phone on the other side of the room, via servers in North America and Norway. Really advanced technology, this. I should be able to call the other direction as well (from Telio to FWD), but I did not get it to work in my test.
