For those interested in Asterisk on FreeBSD with a lot of preconfiguring already done and a lot of extras, try AskoziaPBX.
Askozia®PBX aims to make the power of Asterisk® available to the average user in a slimmed down, embedded PC friendly form. AskoziaPBX is more than another GUI for Asterisk. It is an embedded PBX solution which eases system upgrades, backups and provisioning.

BSDTalk has a 11 minutes interview with Isaac Levy and Steven Kreuzer. Subject of the interview are the preparations for the upcoming New York City BSD Conference (NYCBSDCon) 2008 (11-12 October 2008, New York). More information on the conference can be found at http://www.nycbsdcon.org/
This conference is listed on my public FreeBSD Events Calendar. Check it out for any BSD related events in your area.
BSDTalk has a 12 minute interview with Michael W. Lucas. Mr Lucas is writer of the Big Scary Daemons column at OnLAMP and has written a number of BSD books, of which “Absolute BSD: The Ultimate Guide to FreeBSD” is maybe one of the best known.
In this interview he talks about some of his books and strategies for writing technical publications.
There’s a new interview on BSDTalk . This one is with a few of the FreeBSD Core Team members: Warner Losh, George V. Neville-Neil, Murray Stokely, Hiroki Sato, Robert Watson, Brooks Davis, and Philip Paeps. The interview was recorded at BSDCan2008 in Ottawa, Cananda.
As a sidenote: it’s again time (after 2 years) for the FreeBSD Core Team elections . The FreeBSD Project has relied on democratic elections of the 9 member core team since 2000.
Candidates have 2 weeks in which to declare their candidacy and voting commences on June 19. Active FreeBSD committers are eligible to vote until July 16 and the results will be announced shortly thereafter. Watch this space.
