Sound Choice Communications is located in Bloomington Minnesota, just 1/2 mile west of the Mall of America. The address is: 7839 12th Ave S, Bloomington Minnesota 55425. We are just south of Hwy494 on 12th Ave. 12th Avenue is one exit west of Hwy 77 (Ceder Ave).

This month we'll hear from Shane Young and Dave Walters as they discuss integrating Asterisk with Tivo, Home security, Home Audio, and possibly X-10.

If you're having a problem with Asterisk, bring your questions to a meeting for free help. We love helping new users!

Come to a meeting to meet other asterisk users, see asterisk solutions, win a door prize, eat food, or for the good company, to look for work, if your looking for employees, to go out for a drive, to get out of your house, whatever, JUST COME TO THE MEETING!

Last month we gave away two licenses for the Cepstral Text to Speech software voices. Thank's Cepstral for your support!

In November we gave away an autographed copy of the O'Reilly book "Asterisk - The Future of Telephony". All three authors, plus Mark Spencer personally signed the book.

New visitors can help themselves to FREE FXO Interface cards (So you can connect your phone line, and have a timing source for meetme and IAX protocols). Some members have been known to swap hardware at the meetings. Have extra VoIP gear, looking for VoIP gear? There's plenty of hardware to see. Have you been to a meeting recently?

Please come and share your own ideas and learn from others. As always, free food.

We are always looking for help with meeting topics. If you feel like taking the lead, please do and simply let me know if you need anything.

Meeting starts at 11:30am and parking is available in the rear of the building. Runs about 2 hours or less, and we'll order Pizza to the meeting for lunch.

Look forward to seeing you there.
