TL/DR; — Even older, even fatter, longer goatee.

Last year, Yeni and I crossed some items off her bucket list; most importantly visiting Castle Neuschwanstein and making it to Europe. I was able to attend a Kamailio World which exceeded all of by greatest expectations (I’ve already blocked out 2018).

VoIP worked increased dramatically and I was able to speak at 4 different VoIP conferences in 2017; a new personal record. =)

The year that was…

With 80+ retweets and >20k impressions, it was a Tweet I made acknowledging that Hurricane Season had begun. Second place (with 11k impressions), goes to the response I wrote to Mitel’s idiotic post about open source software.
