Playing With VoIP

Today i went to Plaza Ambarukmo with my girlfriend as usual and she bought me a headset, including a microphone (in an exchange for a MMC card i bought for her new mobile phone) so i can have a chat using VoIP technology (I used VoIP Rakyat for the provider and X-Lite as the softphone client. It's available on Windows, Mac, and Linux platform so it encompasses the three biggest platform available.

All you have to do is register at VoIP Rakyat website to get a new account along with the information needed to connect to the server and download the softphone client and you are ready to go. If you need to know who's online at that time, you can go to this site and it will tell you exactly who's online and what's their connection status (updated per minute). If you want to call him/her, just remember the phone number (5 digits, for example, mine is 51607) and dial that number on X-Lite and press call. If the receiver accept your call, then you are connected and start talking. Cool.... cool
