VOIP Chat Cord


We’ve mentioned Christoffer’s Skype phone before; Jeroen decided to make a device that could work with any standard phone. Seeing the Chat-Cord he decided that one could be built really easily. The main component is a transformer to demux the the mic and line signals. I’m guessing you could grab the appropriate one off of an old modem. To translate the DTFM tones for dialing he downloaded the Chat-Cord software. The only problem left is how to ring the phone using Skype and Jeroen has enough tips to put you on track. I know at least one reader requested this after seeing the Chat-Cord so I hope you guys enjoy.

Hackaday Links


it is most certainly a dreary day. again.

good news though, the third hackaday podcast is finished! we’re going to release it onto iTunes when we get our RSS feed up (very soon). we’ll be sure to put a download link here too of course. it’s packed with content and humor and we’re sure you’ll love it.

more good gnus. i have ordered hackaday stickers and pins/buttons! they’ll be here in about 2 weeks. we’ll be giving them out at defcon but when they do come, and you want some, we’ll let you know how. it’ll just be the old technique of mailing us a SASE for us to mail them back to you in. so that’s good. everyone loves free stuff.

speaking of stuff, t-shirts. hackaday t-shirts will be made soon. we will have them at defcon and that will be the first place to get them. we’re getting a very small ammount made (like 25 or so), so make sure you try to get to vegas or defcon to score one. other then that, we’ll be giving them out on the site somehow. we just need to think of a creative way. hmmm
