[sf-lug] Becoming a user on sf-lug.com; also, Asterisk

I'm very interested in becoming a shell user on sf-lug.com, particularly
as a place with lowish-latency in the US to keep an Asterisk setup. (My
personal server is in Japan, which for all its advantages has a 250ms
What I want out of Asterisk is a phone system I feel I am in control of.
If you dial into some US number, the call should be routed to the Asterisk
server over the Internet; after that point, the call can be forwarded
(admittedly at my expense) to my cell phone, my work phone, my temporary
number in London, voice mail that has a sane interface, a program that
reads random Wikipedia articles to the other end, or anything like that.
So (a) may I become a user on sf-lug.com, and (b) may I run an Asterisk
service there? As far as I know, running an Asterisk doesn't need any
special privileges to run the service; it can run on any port, so multiple
users can run separate Asterisk setups. I'd be happy to give an SF-LUG
and/or BALUG talk on what tricks I pull off with Asterisk if I do get it
set up. (-:
I'll be making my return to San Francisco on July 8 and starting as a
hacker at Creative Commons full-time (some of you might recall my being an
intern there last summer). See you all soon!
P.S. https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-asheesh has SSH public keys of mine,
and the username I would prefer is paulproteus.
Beware the new TTY code!
