<-- Hello Steve:  Very sad news.  Jim has certainly made a huge impact 
with an open-source / cost effective VoIP / RoIP linking solution, which 
quickly grew world-wide. I was one of the early adopters in Canada and 
Allstar linking has certainly taken-off up here.  Furthermore, I have 
been using the base infrastructure for a couple of PBX installs.

Jim's wit and sense of humor will be greatly missed.

RIP my friend.... we never did get to share those "chana" in CA!

73!
