Yes, VoIP is on the rise. But I don't need it. I don't make long-distance calls from a landline, ever... in fact, I don't even have long-distance service on my home telephone. My wife and I call everyone on our cellular phones. It's cool that technology is advancing for landline telephony, but I, frankly, don't see the point.

If you really care about knowing what that all means, you either know the code already, or you can get it decoded for you here.
