Halloween Horrors: The Legend of Plain Old Telephone Service

The following is a survivor's account of his experience with a mythical network of intertwined copper wire known as "Plain Old Telephone Service". The beast is purportedly enormous, stretching from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean and occupying vast portions of the forty-eight contiguous states.

I'm a Sales Representative, and I spend most of my days making calls on our company's hosted PBX platform. I couldn't imagine the world without VoIP. I've come to crave that smooth and clear call so much that I've installed my own residential and cellphone VoIP plans on my personal phones.

While I was on vacation with my family in the Grand Canyon, I had no choice but to use the "landline" phone in our hotel room. This was one of the most disturbing events of my life, and I'm surprised that I can write about it. The experience convinced me that "Plain Old Telephone Service" is actually just a network of injurious demons who have been placed on Earth to torture those of us who care about quality phone service.

CEO, Fun

Back to School: OnSIP CEO Becomes High Schooler for a Day

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to go back to High School, but knowing what you know today? I know I have. Last week, I received exactly that opportunity and it didn’t require a Delorean or 1.21 gigawatts. I took a vacation day and left my job as CEO to become a High School student.

It all started last year when I bid on an item at a silent auction fundraiser for my daughter’s High School, Germantown Academy (GA), in Ft. Washington, PA. The item was “Be a GA Student for the day.” I’m pretty sure I was the only bidder. Apparently no one else thought that being a High School student again, if only for a day, sounded like fun.
