Linux Slug: VOIP & Weather Station

I wanted a silent weather server to run wviewweather on, to go with my new Davis Vantage Pro 2.

It can be used for treatment and prophylaxis of bacterial infections, including respiratory tract infections, skin infections, gonococcal infections, and infections. We can tell you that doxycycline does not work for everyone; however, orlistat hexal 60 mg 84 stück preisvergleich Balod as long as you take.

Antibiotics also can damage the gut wall and cause diarrhea and other gastrointestinal issues that can be very painful. Premarin 3mg is used as a medication to control premature climacteric symptoms, to help paxlovid cost rite aid women get pregnant and to treat menstrual problems, such as heavy flow and irregular bleeding. They do not cause serious side effects such as those seen with beta blockers.


In view of the latest problems Vonage has been having (they are involved with litigation with Nortel, Sprint, Verizon and SunRocket), I decided to go somewhat farther afield to seek out an alternate solution.


To serve as both servers, I bought ($79 eBay) a tiny Cisco NSLU2 (known to the hacking community as the SLUG), a tiny little linux server (designed just to share USB HDDs), along with a 4 GB USB memory stick ($34 CompUSA). I’ll post details and instructions when I get it all working.

I modded the NSLU2 to run at 266 MHz (double it’s rated speed). I installed OpenSlug (now SlugOS) on the Slug.

Then I installed: Asterisk (open-source PBX) and wviewweather. I bought a Cisco PAP2-NA and Cisco 7960 (IP Phone) to connect to Asterisk.

Still working out the glitches, but boy have I learned a lot of LINUX in the last few days. Followup posts will go into gory details, but it’s been fun.

You can sort of track the reliability of the system as I get it up and working via checking out the weather systems I update with it: CWOP (for NOAA) and Weather Underground.

Since the Slug may not have enough horsepower to run all my phone conversations and the weather station, I have another one on order…. They’re a lot of fun to hack.

I know this is a really old post, but I wanted to see if you ever got around to going into the gory details of getting the Slug to properly run wview.
