We recently had an opportunity to spend one of Charleston’s coldest nights with David Duffett and Mark Spencer solving most of the world’s problems. For those of you that don’t know, Mark was the creator of Asterisk® and the founder and current CTO of Digium® while David is the Director of the Worldwide Asterisk Community which means he’s never seen an airplane he didn’t like. As it happens, Mark shares a passion for aviation, and we’ll get to that. Mark… Read More ›

If you’re not feeling especially wealthy this week, the $85 Dual-Core CuBoX-i2 should work just well minus WiFi and Bluetooth. And there are a few other specs worth writing… Read More ›
